u/Pidgiano · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I've got 4 cases I rotate on my Nexus 6P, the first case I got turns out to be the best , feels good, looks good, nice grip,


Must have case for all Nexus 6P , you won't regret it,

Next up is the Cover Up Woodback Explorer, Gold Lightning Bolt..... As soon as I saw the black wood finish with the gold Lightning Bolt I wanted it, very easy to fit, light weight and nice grip on the edges, looks real classy

Third is the Frost Black Supcase Unicorn Beetle.....probably the most heavy duty of the 4 I have, feels real heavy , chunky, dense, tough , looks OK , not as slick as the Ringke, and the main negative for me is how hard it is to take on and off, but for some that'll be a plus as you get a tight fit, becomes one with the phone , sure to protect your Nexus 6P.

Finally a case I want to love but the texture just doesn't quite give me as much grip as I wanted, it looks good, so easy to fit , the Spigen Rugged's OK, nowhere near as much protection as the Supcase, least grip of the 4 I have, but it's a good no thrills solid case without being great.

So there it is , seriously if you don't have the Ringke Fusion you must get it immediately, winner all the way at a great price, the Cover Up Wood back is a comfortable 2nd , really looks amazing but is over twice the price of the other 3 in my top four, the Supcase is the brute of the 4 and finally the fairly drab Spigen Rugged Armour.

Screen protector, yes, I use just the regular ones from best buy, but I would prefer tempered glass. Much more protective. Brother dropped his phone hard and the glass protected the screen from shattering.

I don't own a google store case, but the live cases are pretty popular if you want one custom to you. I really like the design of the Adopted Nexus 6P case on the google store too.

I use the Spigen Rugged Armor, which IMO is the best looking case you can get. If I had any other option for a case though, I'd probably get any really clear thin one and get a Dbrand skin

There isn't any bundles with the 6P that I'm aware of, but regarding your last two questions a simple search on Amazon or Ebay should help you. Just make sure when you're buying USB A to USB C cables, adapters, car chargers, etc. that they're up to USB Spec. Here is a google spreadsheet where you can see nearly all cables and adapters that have been reviewed by Benson. Avoid the ones that aren't approved like the plague and try to buy the ones that are approved for minimum risk of burning down your house/frying your phone.

Other than that I feel you'll find the transition from an Apple device to a Nexus fairly easy, as Nexus provides you with a stock and easy to use Android compared to most other Android flagships.

u/IronedShirts · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Yes-- Keep checking this a few times a day until the model you want doesn't say "Out of Stock"

I love this phone. It's really nice. Using the Google site above, I paid $649 for the phone, $120 extra to make it "pixel XL" and $100 extra to make it 128GB. I didn't pay the extra $100 for the extended warranty, because I bought this case and this case and plan to keep it super safe. All in all it was about $924 with tax.

Using the standard free shipping Google provided, I got my phone in two days. Some people who got their phone through Verizon have been waiting several months at this point.

I also got my Daydream View VR headset last night, and I spent about 5 hours on it having a blast. It is amazing all you can do. The only issue I (and everyone else) has is that after about an hour the phone says "Please remove your phone so it can cool off" and then you realize your phone feels like a piece of molten lava. AKA, it gets very hot after about an hour of VR use. But you simply put in on a table and after maybe 6 minutes it's fine again for another hour.

Please let me know what questions you have about this phone.

u/wordstrappedinmyhead · 1 pointr/lgv20

I've tried 2 cases so far - - Ringke onyx "Resilient Strength" case - OBLIQ Flex Pro Case

They're both good to go, my opinion is purely objective but I prefer the Ringke because it just has a better feel in my hand to me.

I can honestly say that either of these along with the dozens of similarly styled cases should be perfectly adequate for the average v20 owner.

If you happen to be someone who beats the shit out of their phone on a routine basis and expects to expose it to severe environmental conditions, then I'd say the OtterBox Defender for the v20 is probably THE case to get. I'm basing this on having used OtterBox cases on previous phones, so take it for what it's worth.

u/Jelcen · 1 pointr/oneplus

this is the one i got

Yeah I agree, the wood cases look cool, but I don't think they will do much to protect the phone. This case also does put a lip around the screen like the otterbox cases which should help a lot too - but i love this phone so much i'll do everything i can to not drop it, the case is just there for daily protection from scuffs and etc lol - i also love how the buttons are covered so they don't get liquid in them and stuff (nexus 4 got a tiny drop of water under the button and the volume rocker started working very randomly)

u/TofuVic · 3 pointsr/essential

I have tried the TUDIA TAMM TPU Bumper Shock Absorption Cover in Black and am currently using the Incipio NGP Pure Case in Clear.

The TUDIA one is provides a better grip, and it's slightly thicker. The TUDIA one may provide better drop protection, but I'm mostly basing that on the fact that the case is more rigid when it's off and it's slightly thicker. The Incipio one is rated to protect from 3-foot drops. I have read a couple reports about the Incipio NGP case having mushy buttons, but I actually like the way the buttons feel, even more so with the case on than off, in fact.

Another popular case is the Viva Madrid Metalico Flex Clear Back Case. I haven't used it, but based on reports I have read, the case isn't perfect and the Incipio NGP is a better one.

If you want a heavy-duty case, similar to Otterox, check out the (Incipio DualPro)[]. I originally ordered that, but decided to cancel the order because I wanted a clear case so I can see the phone in all its glory. One thing to note with clear cases is that they may turn yellowish over time; I don't know if that's the case for Incipio cases, but that's somewhat typical of clear cases in general.

If you purchase any Incipio cases from, use code INCAFF for 15% off.

u/IgnoreMyName · 46 pointsr/Nexus6P

100th time I'm recommending this now, Spigen Rugged Armor. Unless you want a briefcase for a case, this is the best case out there imo.

I ordered mine the same day I ordered my phone and couldn't be happier with it, cousin has it too. Looks great, comfortable to hold, power and volume buttons effortless to press, proper cutouts for everything, and phone has been fine dropping it from 5' multiple times (of course, not something you should get in the habit of).

Also recommend this screen protector to go with it as it fits well with the case. Honestly though, as great as the screen protector is, I would opt to go for a glare free screen protector next time. Still, this protector does it's job.

u/tc2k · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

You should, it's a great phone and I'm planning to keep it until the successor to the initial Pixel phones. Camera is great all around, HDR makes low light scenes great. The display is AMAZING, I use the multi-window option to do two tasks at once since the display is big enough. Updates will still be flowing in a couple more years and maybe a few more for security updates.

If you also decide to get a case without adding too much extra surface area, this Spigen thin-fit case IS AMAZING!

u/WACOMalt · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I recommend the Spigen TPU case: Its far thinner than the pictures make it look and its a perfect cut/fit 0 complaints.

If you want something hard: was a good one, also by spigen, but I wasnt a fan of the volume/power areas. Plenty of space and they work fine, but the plastic between them is higher than I'd expect and felt odd.

Do NOT get the Dgtle or Redshield cases. I ordered both and to my surprise they were the exact same case. Same mold and everything. The volume/power keys were terrible, and one of them was shipped to me with scratches on it. There's a plethora of random companies selling the same re-branded junk so keep your eyes open.

As for the glass I went with xtremeguard. They always have sales going on (like 50% to 90% off, check the top of the site to see the current one, but there's usually better ones going on if you follow them) which is good since they are normally very overpriced. But I got two of their spartan shield tempered glass protectors for $7. The cutouts include the proximity sensor and the edges are nice. The install went easy which I've never had happen. Currently their sale is at 75% which is pretty good.

u/DIGGYReddit · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I came from a Nexus 5 rooted on 4.4.4KK vanilla with some tweaks, which is almost as ancient sans the LTE (yes I'm still using it as a backup phone/random gaming phone at home). Here's what I've learned.

Case - I'm using a Spigen Rugged Armor, surpsingly it's thinner (despite it's name) than the Ultra Hybrid that's so popular. It is a bit tacky with the fake CF at the bottom, but the phone has just the right amount of grip, and buttons/ports are all working as intended. Can't complain about the price.

Screen Pro - although everyone has their choices, at least in Canada we don't get a good price on so from the CaseBase 2-in-1 is the best for full coverage (only cutouts for the earpiece speaker and prox sensor) for the money

The swiping down from the fingerprint sensor on the back is actually quite easy to do, even with a case on. Definitely easier than trying to get to the top to swipe down one-handed (at least the way I hold my phone).

SystemUITuner - Enable battery % - Waiting on NRT, but WugFresh's Pixel XL was lost in shipment, so it's going to be a while till we get it.

Turn on the notification light (yes, there's one hidden in the earpiece speaker grill). Settings --> Notifications --> Gear Icon --> Pulse notification light

If you care about e-mail, make sure to enable gMail to have unrestricted background data access. I found when the phone was "sleeping" e-mails weren't being pushed so a notification could wake the phone and notify me. Settings --> Apps --> Gmail --> Data Usage. This also works for any other apps you want to be able to use data while the phone is in doze.

u/omicron_IL · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

So.... I, too, hate cases on phones but I'm SUPER prone to dropping my phone.

Enter the Spigen case.

You can thank me for this one later... I use this on my Pixel and it is awesome. Super lightweight but protects the phone from screen-down drops. I've dropped my Pixel at least a dozen times now and it's got nary a dent on it.

u/exelero88 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

I suggest you get a good case for the phone first. As I've seen in the comments, you like to have drop protection, therefore I give you: the spigen rugged armor
This case will give you the best of drop protection and won't add bulk to it, plus it will work with most screen protectors out there and offers also protection on the edges.

As for other things, I like to keep the edge screen for apps edge only. This way I can fit in some apps that I use on a regular basis and I don't want to put too much on the home screen. The transparency setting to full hides the setting very well.

Of course, at first get to know your device and learn to appreciate the things that come with it. I suggest you should make it up for yourself whether you like the features the edge screen brings along or not.

You should go into your edge screen settings and disable yahoo or other news that will show up in your "briefing feed". However, I did not disable the Briefing feed which shows me 3rd party notifications when i swipe on the edges, as I find this very useful in meetings or when the phone just sits at my desk.

For battery life's sake, go to settings, wi-fi, and find the feature "scan for nearby devices". I disabled that because it just drains battery. Then, go to location settings, select "improved accuracy", and disable wi-fi or bluetooth settings. After that, you go to battery settings and scroll down to "app power saving". Set the apps you dont want to be running wild in the background to "always save power". Samsung will turn apps into this mode after 3 days, but you can set it that apps like games for example don't fetch for notifications all the time etc. Last, but not least, tap that build number and you can find the option "inactive apps" in your developer settings. You can toggle apps that you cant deactivate nor uninstall to be inactive so that they don't waste power.

I hoped I could help you out. If you need anything else, this or the r/s7edge subreddit has a lot of informations.


u/etn8127 · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

I've got a Diztronic TPU Matte case and I love it. Just one caveat: If you search, me and a few other users have experienced a slight flaw in the case where the top of the phone isn't quite as snug as the rest. I've had mine replace once, and the new one is better but not completely fixed. It's not a deal breaker - I'll still recommend the case but wanted to let you know. They did make this statement to me via e-mail earlier:

>We had our design team investigate and it looks like the "click" will be a common issue with this case that is not fixable at this point in time. What we have decided to offer is free returns for customers who wish to return the case. If you'd like to return for a refund, let me know and we can get that started for you.

I'm not sure if this is just the Pixel XL (like I have) or the regular Pixel as well.

u/speedyscrublord · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I love the phone's bare look but I love it too much to end up having it slip out of my pocket and into the street or tile floor.

Spigen makes some fantastic, good looking, slim cases for the 6P. A couple people have said that my phone looks better with the Rugged Armor case as supposed to without it. I feel no compromise in using a case.

Here's a link to the one I am talking about:

u/courageousrobot · 8 pointsr/Nexus6P

Don't be lazy, link it! Here, I'll do it for you.

In fact, I'll just link to one of the best tempered glass protectors (as agreed on in that thread and from personal use).

Also, I know you said w/o a case, but here's a really awesome slim case that adds barely nothing to the footprint and feels great in hand.

u/IDK2012 · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I'm using the Spigen Rugged Armor ( and it really is a nice case. I haven't put it to the test yet but after putting the 6P into it I do know I felt a lot more comfortable with where I lay the device and so on. That said the rhino shield bundle setup Evolutive Labs is coming out with looks like a for sure winner. I even placed an order for their full bundle but it's going to be January sometime before it's even suppose to be out. So till then I'll gladly sport Spigen's case. I might even pick up their screen protector. They have a tempered glass one out now (

u/Willamette_H2o · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I was looking for something as close to the Google Silicon case from the OG Pixel since I loved that case! I own both the Incipio DualPro and the Spigen Thin Fit cases.

The Incepio is probably the closest to the Google case, has good grip and seems like it would offer great drop protection. The downside is that it is a bit bulkier than I like.

The Spigen is much thinner and has good grip. Obviously this one is going to offer less drop protection. I love it so far, the only thing I have noticed is that the near the charger, the lip of the case is slightly pointy which can be uncomfortable for me since I like to use my pinky to hold up the phone.

u/coolsideofyourpillow · 2 pointsr/Swimming

You'll want a dedicated waterproof mp3 player because the Bluetooth in your phone only has a range of about 10m. If you still want your phone poolside, just get one of these.

I don't know what your budget is, but I've used these and they're pretty great. Snug fit, doesn't come off from water resistance, and audio quality is good.

u/Ausvego · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

I bought both of these cases myself, actually. I didn't like the Rugged Armor case, the hole on the back is very small, with steep edges, which makes the angle your finger has to be at to unlock the phone rather unnatural, and hard to reach. I really liked the SUPCASE, the hole on the back is really big, so very easy to unlock, and it's good protection for the phone, as well as the clear back looking nice. It does add a bit of bulk to the phone, so I have opted for another one, a different Spigen case, which is on my phone now. It's a lot better than the rugged armor one in terms of the fingerprint scanner, but still not as easy access as the Supcase. It is very low-profile, though, which isn't a huge amount of protection, but if you're like me, and rarely drop your phone, it's good, and looks nice. If I'm traveling, or in a situation where my phone might be used a little more roughly, I would definitely prefer the Supcase over anything else.

u/JayKralie · 1 pointr/Nexus

The case I'm using on it right now is actually quite thick (although not as ridiculously thick as a typical Otterbox case for the iPhone). This is the case I've been using since day one. It's a rather nice case, but the thickness does make the phone slightly bulkier. However, my original reply above was written based on my use of the 6P with this case on it every day, so even with a thick case, I still feel like the phone's size is manageable. I must point out that the phone is slightly easier to use without the case on it. (On a somewhat unrelated note, the lip on the sides of the case also is not high enough to fit over top of a glass screen protector, so be aware that the buttons on the side of the case will be misaligned with the actual buttons on the phone.)

If you're worried about the size and you're not prone to accidentally dropping your phone from more than a couple of feet in the air, I would just go with a thinner TPU case. I like my case, but it has its flaws, and there are definitely thinner ones out there for the 6P.

u/LordKwik · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I used this one for 6 or 7 months before I dropped it and it cracked the corner of the case. Saved my phone but it wouldn't stay in the case anymore. III prefer this one because it only adds 2mm of thickness (check out the description) and a ton of grip. It's made of plastic, but the texture will fool you.

After that, I had this lying around after a sale. It's just rubbery, super grippy, and still pretty minimal. Plus now I can see my dbrand skin lol. Definitely keeps my palms off the edge though.

Before this phone I didn't like cases either, so I really can't recommend any of those premium cases because they add too much thickness. Spigen is a reputable case maker too, and they have their own metal cases if you're interested. Good luck!

u/cobijah · 5 pointsr/Nexus6P

I recently got the Diztronic Voyeur case that recently got back in stock on Amazon with a new revision. I like the case because it's partially clear in the back where the Nexus logo is but this part isn't TPU so it won't turn yellow. I also think it's a good thickness as well (thick enough to provide some fall protection but thin enough to be pocketable and light). Buttons are still clicky with the case on but still require intentional clicking so it's pretty good about not turning on in your pocket. Overall, great case for the price.


u/mithikx · 2 pointsr/oneplus

Just fine, mine is running ExperienceOS R18 with Nova Launcher right now and it's smooth.

I had the Spigen Rugged Armor case for it but I ditched it for OnePlus' Black Apricot case since it was slimmer, it offers minimal protection but it looks great for a case.

Also have the Orzly v2 glass screen protector on mine, not the greatest as there's a rainbow effect but I just left it on since it was miles better than the OnePlus glass screen protector. Not sure if I even need it since I haven't even managed to scratch the screen protector.

I never dropped mine and I'm careful with it so there isn't a scratch anywhere on mine. It's still really fast IMO, I don't play games just music, calls, SMS/MMS, chat, reddit, web browsing, YouTube and etc. which it does just fine. I never used the headphone jack since I use bluetooth earbuds, and I get a full day's use out of my OP3 pretty easily.

The camera is a bit ehh but it's alright given the price of the OP3.

I'll probably use mine for the next 2 years if not 3 before replacing it provided nothing goes wrong/breaks.

u/ChochiWpg · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I'm using this one and really like it. Clear so it doesn't cover up the natural beauty of the device. It's not bulky, buttons are very clicky and easy to use and comes with a screen protector as well. I really enjoy it.

u/rawringbear · 5 pointsr/Nexus6P

Awesome! You'll love it.
Would recommend a case. I really like this one from spigen: Nexus 6P Case, Spigen [Rugged Armor] Resilient [Black] Rugged Armor Ultimate protection and rugged design with matte finish for Nexus 6P (2015) - Black (SGP11797) ...
It's slim and very durable.

I'd also recommend some extra cables. The yoozon are excellent and come in 3 pack of usb-c to USB
Type C Cable, Yoozon® 6.6ft/2m 56k ohm pull-up resistor USB Type C to Type A (USB-C to USB-A) Cable for LG G5, Nexus 6P,Nexus 5X and Other Type-C Supported Devices

Finally. Personally I'd also recommend a tempered glass screen protector.

There are some other cool accessories to look at for VR and stuff, but that depends on your hobbies.

Happy droiding!

u/gilbertsmith · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I bought these:
Screen protector

Had them since Oct 2017 and still going great. Case is tight, not stretched. I cracked one screen protector with my keys and bought another.

Only issue I've had with the screen protector is it doesn't adhere to the screen, it just sticks around the edge.. so I get dust under it occasionally. But, it's also easy to pull off (intentionally mind you) and clean, so you can re-apply it and it works great again. Looks great.

u/pharmbuyr · 1 pointr/S7Edge

I just got this case yesterday and love it! It is as good as an OtterBox (although it does not have the plastic screen protector) for less than half the price. $17.99 @ Amazon


I am using an Armorsuit screen protector, which is also pretty cool. Installation is a bit daunting but it seems to be great so far. Good luck.

u/Knollex · 2 pointsr/oneplus

The Spigen Rugged Armor is the absolute BEST case for this phone. I have the OtterBox and still prefer this case, because it just fits the phone perfectly and feels nice while keeping it at a slim profile. I've also dropped it with this case onto hardwood floor and the phone was perfectly fine. A+ quality.

u/mjsnyder15 · 1 pointr/lgv20

So I had a Dbrand for my V20, but only around the top, bottom and back. I had it on the camera but for me it messed with my wide angle so I removed it.

Then I had the rest of it on for only 2 more days before removing it all. The first night I had my V20 in the Dbrand and put it on the nightstand, my cat caught the charger and pulled it off the stand and it fell and hit the bedframe. I wasn't too worried about it. The following day, the top and bottom pieces weren't holding good so I removed it and now there's scratches from where it hit the bedframe. Nothing too serious but I was kinda hoping it would protect better than it did. I then just went ahead and removed everything and bought this case which has treated me great.

I can't claim this for everyone, but for me Dbrand wasn't the way to go.

u/WhipTheLlama · 3 pointsr/essential

I've got this Tudia case. In black, it's not as garish as in the photo. I normally dislike cases and my last few phones have all been caseless. The EP is just so ridiculously slippery that I'm pretty sure I'll drop it. I might decide to use a skin instead of a case, but if I'm ruining the look of the phone then maybe I might as well have it protected with a full case.


  • Great grip
  • Seems like it offers decent protection
  • The buttons are great. Most case buttons suck, but these are as good as the naked buttons.
  • The cutout around the fingerprint sensor makes it easier to find with your finger


  • The phone has such small bezels that even a small case overlap causes some minor problems touching the screen edges. Solvable with some careful touching.
  • The design on the back is ugly.

I've been using this case for a year now

Google Pixel Case, Maxboost mSnap Thin Cases [Perfect Fit] [Black] EXTREME Smooth Surface with Anti-Slip Matte Coating for Excellent Grip Hard Protective PC Covers For Google Pixel 2016

It's a little fragile around the edges, mine has gotten a crack at the corner joint, but it fits perfectly and has worked pretty well. Just don't get in the habit of popping it on and off a lot and it's fine

u/Cromulator · 3 pointsr/oneplus

I've had two cases so far, The Diztronic case that that has been mentioned, and this one.

The Diztronic I had first since everyone recommended it. It is really well made, fits nicely, its thin, all around great except... it's really slippery. Makes it difficult to use with one hand without it sliding off my palm. Multiple times I almost dropped the phone because of this.

Then I got Tudia case. I wanted something with a little more grip. This one has smooth/glossy border around the sides which kind of 'sticks' to your skin, making it much easier to use one-handed less likely to be dropped. On the down side, it does hold fingerprints around that thin border area. The quality is a bit lower as well, you can see the the lines from the molding process (which you can't on the Diztronic).

Overall, I'm kind of torn. The Diztronic is much nicer to look at, but the Tudia feels safer and makes the phone easier to hold. I'm going to give each more time, but thought I'd share my thoughts.

u/Chorazin · 3 pointsr/nexus6

I have this one and I love it. The material is grippy in my hand, seems pretty high quality and males the phone feel better in my hand. And it's cheap!

Nexus 6 Case, Spigen® [Air Cushioned Bumper] Nexus 6 Case Bumper **...

u/BlackholeDevice · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

At the very least. I would recommend a grip case. I love my XL and all, but it's a bit too slippery. I bought for mine (the XL version, of course). I'm loving it. It's TPU, so it's flexible, yet semi-rigid. It adds almost nothing to the size of the phone and it grips pretty well.

u/galleria_suit · 2 pointsr/essential

I've got the this Tudia case and it's pretty great. Doesn't add much to the profile of the phone, easy to take on and off and looks pretty slick. Also survived a few drops so far hahah.

u/ornryactor · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I'm pretty minimalist in my preferences (and, more importantly, don't have access to a good printer). As an illustration, my regular case is the Spigen Rugged Armor. If I do get the Ringke Fusion, I'm sure I'll just use it as-is, put the adapter on it, and learn to not be bothered by it. In the end, a slightly-less-than-preferable case on a securely-attached phone is better than an ideal case on a smashed-to-bits phone.

u/mmaireenehc · 2 pointsr/iphone

Depends on how much you want to spend. Lifeproof makes some waterproof cases that I see people rave about on this subreddit. I personally took something like this to Hawaii. They're okay. My phone stayed dry but the pictures it took weren't super clear, probably because the plastic material obstructs the camera. Definitely not good to publish but definitely good enough to have a nice memory of it. I would recommend buying a more sturdy lanyard to go with it.

u/SerdaJ · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I like my Parallax case but it's just too bulky and a bit slippery for me. I generally just use my Nillkin Ultra-Thin nature series case. I also ordered another Bear Motion case, this time for the Pixel, as I loved the case on my Nexus 6P. It may not last but 5 months before the grip wears off but at $8 it really isn't a bad deal. If you want a near caseless feel though the Nillkin is awesome.

u/jeromek · 5 pointsr/lgv20

I love the ringke onyx for this phone. Good grip on the sides, and pretty good durability and protection. I've used mine everyday for a year, and it looks great. Granted I go into an office everyday, and I'm not out on construction sites.

u/lorwrin · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

For me it's pretty slippery so a case was necessary. I got this case and it's perfect: still super thin with barely any bulk and it feels nice in the hand.

I went with the slate/black colour and it never ceases to amaze me with its sleek design!

u/BenderB · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

2 best cases, in my opinion, are the Spigen Rugged Armor and the Spigen Thin Fit. They both fit perfectly (even with a screen protector) and look and feel great. Just depends on the amount of bulk/protection you want.

u/webwarmiller · 1 pointr/essential

I'm happy with the Tudia case. It looks much better in person than in the photos...doesn't look as gaudy. The nubby texture on the sides is great and the fit is as good as I've seen a TPU case on any phone. I don't use screen protectors on this phone or any phone.

u/dagaetch · 6 pointsr/essential

I just got a Tudia case yesterday. So far I like it. It's a very well made case, with the cutouts perfect and effective. Not a huge fan of the design elements, but whatever. It makes me feel much more comfortable, since the phone is so slippery without it. My only problem (which would be true of any case) is that the ridge around the screen compounds the pre-existing edge detection issues, so that's annoying. Hoping a future update from Essential fixes that however.

u/shall_2 · 2 pointsr/Axon7

Unfortunately there aren't that many unique cases for the Axon 7 but I've never seen any case like the one you're describing.

Maybe something like this would work for you though?

CardNinja Ultra-slim Self Adhesive Credit Card Wallet for Smartphones, Black

I doubt you'd be able to fit a case over the top of it but it's pretty cheap so maybe worth a shot.

As far as phones go, I have a few of these. I've taken my phone with me every time I've gone boarding, and I even used that bag to go snorkling and use my phone's camera underwater in Belize. When I used to push into the ocean from the beach with my board I'd have several waves hitting me and waist-high water, so the phone would always be submerged for that duration, and I've never had the bag fail. I DO test it regularly. You can never test a dry bag enough!!

For my camera, I'm testing out this bag before seeing if I need a better/more expensive type. Today was really successful! Definitely have to finagle a bit and have your settings at least close to where you think you'll want them the whole time, but overall it was a success! I would NOT take this bag underwater though. I would invest in an actual hard underwater case for that. But since I don't actually ever intend on the bag getting more than just a little wet from splashes or my hands, it works great.

u/manoman042 · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

I've always used Diztronic cases from my Nexus 4 and 5, now purchased one for my Pixel, will let you guys know how it is, but I'm pretty positive it will perform flawlessly like how it did with my prior phones. Numerous of drops and impacts to the device and not one issue.

They also introduced couple new colours too

u/lexbuck · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

I love this phone personally. For the first couple months it had some lag, camera, and battery issues but those seem to new fixed with recent updates. I came from an iPhone 5s and was nervous as I hadn't used Android for a while and last experience wasn't that great. But this phone is great I think and I actually like it better than any phone I've had.

This is the case I have and I really like it. Didn't add bulk

u/LaGrrrande · 1 pointr/nexus6

From what I can tell, the Slim armor has a soft TPU case around the entire phone along with a hard plastic backing covering most of it, the Neo Hybrid has the TPU covering, but a hard plastic bumper that doesn't cover the back of the phone. Now the Ultra Hybrid has soft TPU bumpers around the corners and a clear hard plastic back to it. I have an Ultra Hybrid, a Slim Armor, and a Ringke Max (Comparable to the Slim Armor, only it has a textured plastic back and no kickstand. I'll probably roll with the Ultra Hybrid most of the time so that I can show off the spiffy dbrand white carbon fiber back I've got ordered, and swap the Ringke Max or the Slim Armor for when I'm doing something a bit more prone to phone breakage like hiking or whatever. The product pages on Amazon for the Spigen cases have pretty good pictures of how they each break down, but they can definitely be confusing as to what the differences between each case are.

u/johnnyboi1994 · 1 pointr/nexus6

I have this, but i also went back to this. I think it's a softer field in the hand and not as noticable as the rugged one. plus it has a clear back that I want to use with a skin I purchased. you'd be happy with either.

u/captnkerke · 2 pointsr/lgv20

I don't know if you would consider it heavy duty, but I use the Ringke Onyx and am very happy with it. I think it offers a good combination of protection and grip, without too much bulk. It's also easy to remove and install.

u/originalmoose · 1 pointr/technology

I have the Pixel XL and I can say I am completely happy with it (Switched to ProjectFi as well, I only use a little over a gig a month so its pretty cheap).

Battery life has been amazing. I don't use my phone a whole lot (browsing reddit, reading work emails, occasional youtube videos, looking up stuff, I might try a game every now and again but I prefer pc for that) and I probably get a solid two days in between charges to 70-80%. I'll occasionally charge to 100% if I'm going to be using a lot of GPS or something.

Performance wise no complaints either, everything feels really snappy and I haven't noticed and lag. I'd recommend a case because the metal body is slippery if your hands are dry, and one time it slipped out of my pocket onto the concrete when I knelt down putting a nice little scuff on the corner. I bought the following case and screen protector

The two pack of screen protectors is nice because you will eventually break one, I know I did.

u/Deep4569 · 6 pointsr/Nexus6P

If you want a good case just get the carbon fiber spigen case from Amazon:

I have had this case for about 2 years now and have dropped my phone more times than I'd like to admit and have no dents/scratches on the phone screen. As for a screen protector just get any tempered glass protector. The 6p is such a nice phone hope you'll enjoy it, I just changed the battery recently and probably going to keep this phone till it officially gives out.

u/mehtabg · 3 pointsr/oneplus

I bought the Tudia case when I first bought the phone but I found that it added too much bulk to the phone and caught way too many fingerprints on the glossy back.

I've since bought the Diztronic TPU case and I love it. I would definitely recommend it if you were looking for a matte black case! (Link:

u/Dbug77 · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS7

Check out this case

I used Spigen slim armor before it and noticed the case gets scratched very easily and buttons are not as noticeable.

The Unicorn Beetle case is currently my favorite as it has amazing grip, protection and looks great! (Comes in multiple colors)

[Screen protectors also work with this case.]

u/Vettro88 · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I really like Maxboost case. Super thin, snug fit and not slippery (especially after a week or so). Also not too grippy when trying to get it out of your pocket. The buttons seem hard to press at first but got use to it really quickly and prefer to push the actual buttons if it means the case can be thinner. I dropped my phone on tile the other day face down and the raised edge protected the phone beautifully.

u/somanyfountains · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I hate cases and liked the bear motion on my 6p, but the cutout for the Lazer camera sensor was too small and every tiny speck of dust that got in there interfered with the focus. Finally found a case I like to replace the bear motion :

LOL at my inception pic

Here's the case in amazon :

It's a bit slippery but has a really nice feel and is minimal with button cutouts, I can't stand cases covering buttons.

Which one do you think is the "grippiest"? I've tried all of the ones I've listed below but they're all just not very grippy. If I angle my open hand at all, it starts to slip. I never had that issued with the Ringke Slim on my iPhone 5S. I like the super low profile of the Suensan and Bear Motion but none of them feel grippy to me. The Bear Motion has the most grip but even that one is underwhelming.

Hey, welcome to Fi! I got my sim chip, but I have to wait until Feb. 22 to switch over because I'm still on contract. I'll join you soon though ;)

There is a great thread about a modular stand. Also, I just bought this case, it's on a 70% discount right now.

u/Inoimispel · 1 pointr/S7Edge

I got the unicorn beetle from amazon. Cheap but built surprisingly well. It is designed with a bezel the clicks into place around the the front of the screen and holds down the edges to any screen protector you add.

I got the Zagg soft screen protector but I see the Yootech gets excellent reviews on Amazon for a fraction of the price.

u/Oh_helloooo · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

I've had this one on for a few months after having the same Spigen problem. The clear back has developed a few small scratches that you'll notice if you look close, though. If that bothers you, I think they have a version that's solid throughout. Buttons aren't cut out but never give me a problem. Great option for the price. Hopefully you can still find it elsewhere.

Edit: The solid option

u/ph0b0z · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Last time i was to a Saturn haven't seen any Pixel accessories, maybe just call first? But if there's nothing in the online store.. I think you're out of luck. :)

Free (as in: I have Amazon Prime) same day delivery is applicable to this case, which i can recommend (apart from it being a bit ugly..):

u/bbarber4 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I'm loving this Spigen Rugged case so far. Very easy to pop on/off and it looks great

u/gotamd · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I just got a clear protector (case friendly) from IQ Shield, and it's great. I tried a matte protector (full screen coverage) first, but I didn't have the patience to do the edges and ended up going with this one.

The protector itself is still larger than the actual display area and the borders work great with the Spigen Thin Fit case (I got it because of the cutout for a magnetic mount plate) which I'm also using. It's not a tempered glass protector, so you do get that plastic-y feel and small amount of the orange peel look, but that's just a fact of life with the wet-apply, plastic protectors.

u/narutoninjakid · 1 pointr/samsung

Best one I found. Many great reviews and encases the whole phone. Also wireless charge works. Bonus it holds down any screen protector you use so it doesn't peel up. $18

Spigen Rugged Armor.

Pros : Minimum bulk, adds grip, easy to install/remove as it's flexible.

Cons : It hides the nice Aluminium back of the phone and logo. But there is the Ultra Hybrid case which is transparent.

Coupled with the Orzly 2.5D TGSP V2. Some people notice the dotted layer on the TGSP, but I don't, at all... Have to make sure that it is perfectly applied and centered so it doesn't interfere with the case.

u/pvito · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I have four different types of cases but my favorite by far is the Bear Motion Ultra Slim Case I have it in red and it looks great on my black Pixel. The red looks kinda pink on amazon but it is just red.

Also have the Spigen Rugged Armor for when I think I may need a bit more protection.

u/oshinX · -2 pointsr/Nexus6P

Ok I have this J&D Case it's super slim and is more for small drops and cause this phone is super slippery. There is also this Spigen Rugged Case it's more protective without being super bulky. This Supcase Heavy Duty is even more protective. But the most protective case I could find on Amazon that didn't have bad reviews/none was this beauty.

u/shane2811 · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

I honestly cannot say anything bad about this case. Provides great protection while staying very thin. Everything is snug and cutouts are perfect.

u/hbomb4444 · 2 pointsr/S7Edge

I tried several screen protectors from amazon and the're garbage. Do yourself a favor and head over to best buy and have them put the geek squad one on. It cost me $30 CDN but it's the only option that isn't crap and they guarantee it. I have this case and it's fantastic.

u/TheCrazedGeek · 2 pointsr/essential

4: The Tudia TAMM case is excellent. I've also been pretty happy with this screen protector -- it bubbles up very slightly at the edges with the TAMM on, but it's great otherwise.

u/luusyphre · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

I have the black Diztronic but they have the Voyeur Series which has a clear back. The top and sides are still covered, but I tried many different cases and settled with Diztronic because their buttons were the best by far.

u/TrevorX5J9 · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

Check out either the Spigen Rugged Armor or the Unicorn Beetle Pro. The first one is more of a slim/sleek option and the second is more akin to an Otterbox. I own both and I prefer the Unicorn mostly because I'm clumsy and it'll protect from drops. It's a fair amount thicker than the Rugged Armor however. As for glass screen protectors, check out the Spigen Glass Screen protector. It's a perfect fit and I've had my screen saved once by it. Smooth to the touch as it should be.

Spigen Thin Fit! Great premium feel and great grip!

u/-Ravenzfire- · 6 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I use this one on my S7 Edge. I think it's probably close to what you are looking for. It's got kind of a rubber/grippy texture to it and I love it, never have a problem with it slipping out of my hand. It's definitely a slim fit so not a ton of protection but I rarely if ever drop my phone so just wanted something with basic protection and good grip.

Edit: Found an S7 version:

u/choose_the_rice · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I love my black Maxboost case. It's pretty thin and looks badass with my Quite Black. When I had an iPhone it was also my favorite brand of case.

I even bought and returned one of the $40 Google cases with the map print. It just didn't look as good as the really cheap Maxboost.

u/TVK777 · 1 pointr/Cruise

Concerning the waterproof phone case, we used a case that was more of a waterproof pouch like this. It is clear on both sides so you can use the camera on it and still see what you're doing as well.

As for waterproof-ness, my phone was perfectly dry and I dove down to at least 10-15 feet to get some video. The only issue I have with it is the water will interact with the screen through the case (as it is touch sensitive.) If you take a video underwater, it may do some weird things like random zooming.

u/newone757 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I don't like the bear motion because it leaves the top and bottom wide open. I got the Max boost Msnap and love it. It's super thin, phone almost feels naked

u/themagpieswarble · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

I've heard that the screen really only scratches if you happen to put it in a pocket with some grains of sand in there. Scratch tests on YouTube show you have to really go to town on it with stuff beyond keys to make it scratch.. but sand is just brutal for every screen.

I went with the Diztronic for my Pixel:

The Pixel is coming on Thursday so can't speak to it yet. But I wanted just a slim minimalistic case. Judging by the reviews, it seems like this case has nailed the covered buttons. Still super clicky and responsive despite being partially covered.

I'm going to try the screen protector. If it looks bad, I'll probably just go naked screen and hope for the best.

u/dandeagle · 11 pointsr/Nexus6P

I can't believe how many people are still bashing the Nexus 6P in this thread, if you have moved on from the phone please unsubscribe from the sub. Wow.

Enjoy your new phone, I recommend a good case, because the phone is quite thin and slippy when cold or when your hands are moist.
This is the one I've used for 2 years -

u/RuhaiHu · 1 pointr/WRX

They have a few varieties of mounts.

For the most part once I tighten it it stays. Though slowly it will come loose. At some point I will probably take some epoxy or something along that line and just permanently fix it in the position on want it. Probably when I break it from tightening or it wears too much to tighten.

It is held on by 3m tape.

I found that to be a good place to keep it out of the sun heat/ fan heat. Spot also cools off ok from AC. Also keeps my phone from blinding me when driving at night.

BIGGEST thing I like about that spot is that I don't have to stretch/reach like if it was up above the radio.

I also find that spot to be good because I can quickly steady my hand on shifter(people going to complain about that)/ find my position so I can quickly request new playlist or try and tap the voice command button if for some reason its not working by voice.



Using a slim case like this that has a depression in it so I don't actually have to stick the metal plate for the magnetic part to my phone or a case.

u/akashik · 7 pointsr/Nexus6P

All I wish was for it to be a little less slippery. I have mine in a case so it's fine, but I pull it out once in a while to clean out the dust (and to marvel at it's beauty). Every time I do I'm sure it's going to launch itself across the room and end up embedded in the wall.

u/aelron · 14 pointsr/GooglePixel

I really like the slim case by Diztronic. The protection aspect is probably better in the Spigen, but it's still pretty good and you have some color choices.

u/MrChow13 · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I have the same metal plate on my 6p and use this case with the magnet between the case and the phone. It may lose some of its strength but I use the mount in my car daily as well and it has never once fallen off even after abrupt turns and braking so clearly still has enough strength to securely hold the phone. Plus the metal plate is entirely invisible.

u/Helios119 · 1 pointr/essential

I'm a little late, but the Tudia TAMM has worked great for me. Matte, no cutouts, does have some patterns on the side for grip and the top/bottom for...coolness I guess. Protected my phone when it fell from like stomach height off my bed onto tile. Link if you wanna check it out:

u/RAMASO · 1 pointr/lgv10

I don't know about it being badass. But this is the only type there is to waterproof a device. With a pouch.
All other "waterproof" shells or cases might be water resistant at best since they recommend against submersion. I guess, just being able to use your device underwater is badass enough, right?

u/Nuckles37 · 1 pointr/essential
  1. I use this Tudia case, it looks way better in person than in the photos (the white-ish lines/bits are black in person and are a bit reflective), adds some grip, it feels like it adds a decent amount of protection, the buttons still feel great, and it's not bulky:

  2. I would recommend updating to the latest version before putting in your sim card or logging into your google account (I had to update/restart my phone twice to get fully updated). Once that's done, factory reset then put your sim in and log into your google account.

  3. If jitter is very noticeable and it bothers you, unlock the developer options and tune Touch Sensitivity down (I have mine at 4). You can also turn off Grip Rejection if you don't have a problem accidentally touching the edges of the screen.

  4. I'm on Koodo and my area has weak 4G/LTE and the phone's poor reception makes it worse, but when I switch to 3G only mode I get full/mostly full bars all of the time. Wifi is also a bit weaker than on my previous phones but I haven't had problems because of it.

  5. I personally found the icons to be too small on this phone so I used nova launcher to increase them to 140%. I don't know if that's an option on the free version or if you have to pay a few bucks for nova launcher prime.

  6. Using a dark background will cause the pull-down/notification menu to be black, using a lighter background will cause it to be white. (I wish you could manually assign it)

  7. Not a must-do, but I installed Arnova8G2's v7beta9 google camera port/mod and I think it takes noticeably better pictures than the default camera app on the phone.
u/i_teach_internet · 1 pointr/AndroidQuestions

one of these and one of these

The Spigen has a slight bulk to it, but is a solid case. The Google case is more of a novelty with the extra button, but is slimmer and protects pretty well.

u/lesigh · 2 pointsr/essential

This case has been really good for me. Increases the grip in hand and on surfaces. It's not too bulky and feels like it'll provide good protection against drops.

u/bearkin1 · 2 pointsr/Android

This one here. Make sure you select the Thin Fit Shell case. I've had it for a few weeks now and I love it. Just be sure though that it's for the S6 Edge, not S7 Edge.

Edit: Found this for the S7 Edge.

u/xjmt · 2 pointsr/EDC

Been at it about 15 years ranging from high school and college football, powerlifting, "cardio boxing" but now just trying to be my strongest and look my best, perhaps compete again if I find the right work/life balance.

  1. GoRuck Bullet, 15L, Black w/ Predator Patch:

    Recently purchased this as a gym bag and a carry-on day pack when I travel which I suspect will fit both needs for life.

  2. Rogue Gym Chalk (Ziplock container):

    Bought a single box of eight a few years ago and I'm either collectively on only the first or second block. I left one at the gym and it was probably thrown out (not allowed) and have since sold the rest. It would have lasted me a lifetime deadlifting 1-2 times a week and really only need one application to last a few heavy sets. Chalk is pretty generic, I bought from Rogue because it was cheap and easy, I'm sure it can be found elsewhere.

  3. Inzer Forever Buckle, Double Prong, 10mm, Black:™-10mm

    My second belt from Inzer of the same style but smaller waist size. Would have opted for the Forever Lever but as I drop or gain weight I wanted the flexibility and avoid readjustment. I haven't tried other brands but Inzer hasn't given me a reason to.

  4. iPhone 6 & 6S in OtterBox Commuter w/ Cubi Credit Card Holder:

    I dual wield my work and personal phone at the gym, one streaming YouTube/Pandora, the other for my workout (5/3/1) reference. The card holders' adhesive is still good but one does not retain cards well anymore since I've stuffed it with as much as 5 cards plus cash. OtterBox are showing their wear (cracked) but no broken phones to date and personally would have to get worse before I decide to send in for replacement.

  5. Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless:

    The reviews online are true, these things have been a pain in the ass sometimes. I put up with the Senns for the better sound quality, noise isolation, and "different" factor over AirPods; mine had the mic recently fail after two years but were more reliable otherwise. Issues include battery drain/dying in charging case (known issue), intermittent connectivity and/or start-up issues (fixed via reset), and silicone inserts needing adjustment sometimes to isolate noise (haven't tried Comply TrueGrips yet). Also, the outer case could have better perceived quality (lid feels loose) but has held up well so far.

  6. Under Armour Sandals:
    Not much to say here, sauna/shower wear. My only criteria is black and solid velcro or no velcro at all as I had on an old Nike pair.

    Not shown: Gym/basketball shoes, I deadlift/squat in socks so I really just need something to walk around in otherwise.

    Looking to add: My own set of barbell collars, my gym they're either worn out or in use.

I had ordered the graphite from Best Buy last fall. It turned up unavailable, so I went with aluminum. I'm glad I got it. The look is very elegant. I use this bumper case to show it off while protecting it.

u/jag986 · 1 pointr/lgv20

I picked up this one

Very thin profile with a lip over the front and extends beyond the camera bulge and holds it about a millimeter or two above the resting surface. Cutouts are super accurate and it feels good and grippy in the hand.

u/Blitzsturm · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

I use a Spigen Thin Fit case which is close enoguh to the natural profile that a DBrand Skin fits over it perfectly.

I use a black carbon skin with red carbon text and camera inlay. Looks fucking amazing, adds very little to the size of the phone and adds a basic protective value.

Check out the skins and see if there's one you like. Another bonus is you can get multiple cases and multiple skins and swap them with minimal effort.

Also if you're into wood grain Toast has some nice looking stuff, but you'd need to put that on the phone it's self since it wraps.

u/tankzar · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

Looks promising! I picked up this Bear Motion case off Amazon and really ended up liking it. Has a sandstone finish like the OnePlus One and it's as thin as the Spigen Thin fit cases. Only gripe is that it doesn't cover the top or bottom chin.

u/dfloyd13 · 2 pointsr/oneplus

Diztronic and Orzly. This is not even an opinion, they're the best :P Good luck!

u/TTwoTerror · 5 pointsr/GooglePixel

These cases actually have a sandstone feel to the back similar to the Oneplus One. I had one of these for one of my devices and absolutely loved it.



The point of these slim cases in my opinion is to protect from scratches from in your pocket or sliding across a table rather than dents and dings that you'd get if you dropped the device. I'd recommend this from personal use. It is slim, protective, and aesthetically pleasing.



If you're looking for a quality slim case as per reviews. I'd suggest looking at this case.



EDIT: Added more cases.

u/Aceblast135 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I've got the regular sized version of this case and so far I've been ok. But yeah, it's the exact same case, just smaller. I'll be keeping an eye out for that slot to make sure it stays clean. Thank you for the heads up!

u/notmyname1 · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I have an Intelliarmor TGSP and love it. I also own 3 cases:

  • The Adopted from the Google store. This is my favorite case overall. It's minimal, adds very little bulk, and has grippy sides.

  • Spigen Rugged Armor. People seem to love this case, but I just don't get it. It doesn't add any grip, so you still feel like you'll drop it. And the carbon fiber absurdity on the back is humiliating.

  • Supcase - This is not an attractive case, and it does add some extra bulk over the Adopted. However, it does feel a bit more protective. I actually dropped my phone from waist-height onto a tile floor and my phone escaped blemish-free. I was trying this out, and will likely leave this on for now.

    NOTE: All 3 of these cases work great with the Intelliarmor TGSP.
u/KentuckyHouse · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

Yes, the Diztronic will work with a screen protector. I have a glass screen protector on my 6P and the Diztronic works fine with it.

An alternative suggestion for a case would be the Spigen Rugged Armor. This is the one I use daily and it's basically the Diztronic with a bit more style on the back (the inlaid carbon fiber accents). This one also works perfectly fine with a screen protector.

Spigen Rugged Armor:

This is the glass protector that I'm using:

I love my Maxboost case.

Here's a few pics of it on my Pixel. It's very thin, fits well, and has great coverage. There's a small lip over the front to protect the screen. The bottom doesn't have jagged edges to hurt my pinky with the phone is resting on it, and it has a nice "soft touch" finish. It isn't super grippy, but miles better than slick plastic or the metal on the naked phone.

u/smonty · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

bear motion is my personal favorite and my every day carry case. I like the grip it provides with the textured backing. Lacks top and bottom coverage though.

Spigen rugged armor I use this one if I feel I might benefit from a little more protection. But prefer bear motion for the slim and grippy feel. Also prefer the uncovered buttons on bear motion.

Just go with the Spigen Rugged Armor. It says it is for the Oneplus 3 but it will also fit the Oneplus 3T. It looks like a hard case but it is actually thin and malleable while still offering good protection.

You can try what I did while filming underwater. Get a pouch, I have similar to this one: Amazon and it works great.

Start filming out of the water and then submerge. It will stay recording without problems.

You can use volume rockers to take photos underwater or to take photos while recording.

EDIT: I found mine, I have YOSH brand, it is just perfect. I bought it after intensive research about underwater cases of all kinds. Here it is on eBay

If you have a Quite Black Pixel this Maxboost mSnap thin case looks phenomenal on it. I have one and it matches the quite black color perfectly. It's also extremely slim and has great grip after ~1 week of use.

I purchased a Pelosi Flip cover case which I really liked for a few minutes until I couldn't get my phone out of the case. Switched to the Diztronic case and its fantastic. Light, thin and easy to take on and off. Links to both cases below (also the places I got them from)

I just got Diztronic's Voyeur Case (availability seems to come and go) and I think it does the best job of preserving the phones looks. It's slim and has awesome buttons and the clear plastic back is actually really grippy. I feel a case is more necessary for grip than massive protection because this phone is ridiculously slippery.

u/djdertate · 6 pointsr/oneplus

I have had the Diztronic TPU case for five months now and I love it. Offers good protection and pulls out of my pocket easily.

u/Akomack31 · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

Ringke Fusion

Easily my favorite case, haven't even looked at anything else since i bought it like 4 months ago. The smoke hides discoloration, even though i don't think the clear would discolor much. Buttons feel perfect.

u/i_dont_69_animals · 4 pointsr/Nexus6P

Anyone have any idea how the Spigen Rugged Armor compares to this?

I mean, I'm not planning on having any 11-foot phone drops (knock on wood) but this thing looks pretty nifty.

u/GamersCorp · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

I am an avid biker, and have tried MANY different mounts. The only one that I have found to work perfectly is the Quad Lock Bike Mount. I use it attached to this case, which I only put on while I bike. I highly recommend this setup.

u/CoolJumper · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

To bad Otterbox doesn't makes cases for Nexus phones. But if bulk and looks (which is subjective) aren't a worry, this seems to be up your alley.

This one also isn't bad, but like you mentioned I'm seeing more about the looks than anything else. I have it and personally I love it, but I can't speak for its ruggedness since I haven't really ever dropped my phone (with spending over $600 I'm incredibly protective of it).

Here's a 3rd option. More pricy, lacks reviews, but Speck is general a really well received brand for cases and protection.

u/swirlled_ · 1 pointr/oneplus

Yeah I agree, I don't like the issue with the camera bump either on the Flexicase. But another case that has caught my eye was the Spigen case thats available for purchase soon, it's not a clear case like the Flexicase or anything but it looks clean and looks promising. Check it out and tell me what you think!

u/ThatsMrHacker2U · 1 pointr/GalaxyNote8

My everyday case is a Caseology Legion with a CardNinja Ultra-slim Self Adhesive Credit Card Wallet on the back. Comes up around the edges to protect it, good grip on the hand. It's a bit thick and with the card wallet it is not 100% compatible with the official Samsung round leather fast charger.

I use a sticky case when I'm in the gym, keeps it firmly attached to the squat rack so I don't accidentally step on it or squash it with a plate. I use the Galaxy Note 8 Case, LONTECT Anti-gravity Selfie Case Magical Nano Sticky Hard Case (Sorry, no link)

For a dressy, thinner case I have the Spigen Liquid Air Armor Galaxy Note 8 Case.

u/Ruby_Language · 1 pointr/bicycling

I'm using the Quad Lock Front Mount with the Quad Lock Universal Adapter. You pretty much attach the universal adapter to your phone case and you're good to go. I also have a Nexus 6P and I'm using this case if that helps.

u/desai827 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

For the standard Pixel, I recommend the Spigen Rugger Rugged Armor (this is what I have) and for the Pixel XL, I recommend the Spigen Neo Hybrid

Personally, I've used Spigen cases for a while now and they've always served me well. I'd have opted for the Neo Hybrid for my Pixel is they made it, unfortunately, they don't. That being said, I'm very happy with the Rugged Armor case.

u/crispycornpops · 1 pointr/homeassistant

That does look interesting indeed, I like that it doesn't require batteries.

But I just thought of another possible idea, maybe putting any regular smart button inside of a waterproof pouch / dry bag. Does that seem like a viable idea? Not sure if those things would hold up in daily usage.

u/prnorm · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

Too bad. I always recommend Diztronic cases as the best no frills, bang for your buck case.

The Diztronic Voyeur for the Nexus 6P is still the best case I've ever owned both aesthetically and functionally. Haven't been able to find something as nice as this since for any other phone.

u/Arcendus · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

You could opt for a clear case, like the Ringke Fusion ( or Spigen Ultra Hybrid ( I use the Ringke Fusion with a back-only skin and it works wonderfully.

u/xFIJI · 2 pointsr/Nexus6P

Headphones: Jaybirds. Sweat proof. Lifetime warranty on sweat. Great sound for the price. Perfect for gym or just casual. Wait for x3's. I got x2 they have problem with battery completely dying (atleast in my case), but the company always down to fix them. x3 coming out around October ("Fall") I think.

Case: Google live case, because swag and scratch protection. You can totally get cheaper/better (less swag) on Amazon. Spigen Rugged Armor comes in mind. Looks good but doesn't really protect the screen, you will need a bulky one for that.

u/theperfectwatermelon · 1 pointr/lgv20

What's your battery life like? Screen on time you usually get?

Also have this case and it's pretty nice, I also wanna get a dbrand skin skin they're cheap and have a lot of options.

u/anotherDocObVious · 1 pointr/PickMeAPhone

Pretty much this entire thread :

It's basically the issue with the slight curved edge of the glass where it meets the edge of the screen. Glass can't be reliably bent (yet), so whatever options are there in the market are not really good solutions.

For me, I want my screen to look pristine without any scratches (which WILL come, even if it corning gorilla whatevermajiggy - it's not sapphire, so it WILL scratch).

The Orzly tempered glass screen protector that I installed barely a week after I bought my OPO 2 years ago is still going strong, with just one minor scratch, whihc is noticable only when looking at a reflection under a tubelight). And it has saved my OPO innumerable times, of course, this is more attributable to the Diztronic TPU case that I also picked up. I swear by these two

u/InadequateUsername · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P

this is a nice one, they feel nice in your hand, or at least it did when I was holding someones iphone with the same.

I just got the Spigen Rugged for my phone an so far so good.

u/crunchytacooo · 12 pointsr/oneplus

i really like the diztronic tpu case

a couple friends (who don't know what the OPO looks like) assumed my phone was caseless when they first saw it, its design is that good

u/Illuminatisamoosa · 1 pointr/lgv20

Here's my 2cents. Advice above regarding cases is sound. The curved screen makes it hard to protect. So I initially ordered the uag rugged case. You can drop the phone from anywhere and it will be 100s. However, it was too much. The phone was just to bulky, my pockets were getting ruined, and the aux and charging ports were too much of a mission to access. So I have changed to this:

And it's amazing. I'll risk the screen for the slim fit.

Battery- I got this 2 weeks ago and have been swapping it daily with my original battery. So far seems legit and works better than the original:

u/tacomaprime · 4 pointsr/GooglePixel

I have this one

I like that it makes it so the phone doesn't slide around on surfaces. Seems to work great so far. I had one on my previous phone as well and that's why I got it a second time.

u/dustinbiebert · 6 pointsr/GooglePixel

This. Fairly thin and good grip but offers great protection

u/NatoBoram · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

The Incipro does look charming.

I'm not so fan of the clear case.

The Diztronic, well... The logo on the side is a huge turn-off for me.

It seems like Body Glove Mobile doesn't offer Pixel cases online, hm.

u/lerchisme · 2 pointsr/Pixel2XL

My case lately has been the Spigen Thin Fit Case with SF Coated Non Slip Matte and I think it's pretty good for $12

u/tjbice · 3 pointsr/Nexus6P is compatible, it's not bad either the only thing that bugged me was the fingerprint sensor hole was a little bigger than needed to be, which is why I went for a skin to protect the little extra area. There's not a lot of good clear cases.

Here's a pretty decent list.. it has most.

u/zuiaiqie · 3 pointsr/GooglePixel

those cases will be heavy and bulky af. just use those water proof bags like this one. I got one since iphone 4 and it still works perfect now(it's easy to tell when it stops working).

u/GenXElder · 0 pointsr/Nexus6P

Absolute best is

I've dropped my 6P on concrete, landing on corner (it happened in slo-mo as I saw it fall) and not a scratch to my beloved 6P.

u/Umbristopheles · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I specifically bought this case to increase grip and it does very well without really adding bulk. A bonus is I put one of those metal plates on the inside of it and I can now use magnetic mounts in my car.

I put this adhesive leather wallet on a Ringke Fusion clear case. It wasn't a cheap solution, but it has worked perfectly for me over the last seven months.

u/SuperDece · 12 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I've used Spigen for my last 3 or 4 phones. The Rugged Armor has been great for my s7 edge. It's slightly thinner than Neo Hybrid, and only slightly thicker than the Thin Fit since it sits in front of the bezel on top and bottom.

u/rumilb · 1 pointr/showerbeer

I got one of these. Works great, easy to put on. I don't even have to take my case off.

Not at all a silly question! I asked the exact same thing almost a year ago and this subreddit gave me the suggestion to get one of these: Worked great - and we were highly amused by another young couple on St. Thomas that got into a big argument, pointing and yelling at us, about why they hadn't thought to do this and the husband was now stuck in the water with one hand overhead at all times to hold up his phone.

u/nimbyfubar · 2 pointsr/GalaxyS8

a few things to remember:

  1. the IP68 rating doesn't take into account swings in water pressure, so if you're using it in rushing water, that could exceed the limits of the phone's water resistance.
  2. if you have ever sat on or bent your phone, there's a chance that it could have compromised the seals, and thus, the IP68 rating.
  3. if you do use the phone in a pool, immediately rinse it off in gentle water afterward to get as much of the chemicals off of it.

    to be safe, you could consider using a waterproof case like this.

I got this clear TPU case and love it because it doesn't hide the phone and it doesn't add very much bulk: Ringke [Fusion] Clear PC Back TPU Bumper

u/jpierini · 4 pointsr/GalaxyS7

I prefer finding a case I like, like a Spigen Rugged Armor, and then use a lycra/spandex card pocket. Card Ninja is my favorite.

u/michaellapena · 1 pointr/samsung

i sometimes alternate between case and caseless. i've dropped my phone twice out of clumsiness, and luckily only have small knicks on the top corners of my phone. if you're afraid of bulkiness of a case, i'd recommend spigen's thin fit or crystal liquid cases. they offer some protection without the bulk.

u/echevez · 2 pointsr/churning

This is my current wallet. The sliding to get the cards out is so satisfying and people always comment on it saying they think it's cool. It is very slim and I fit about 7 cards in it. I also added a [pouch] ( to the back to keep cash in. Overall, 10/10 would recommend

u/clintswift · 3 pointsr/lgv20

I got my phone under the same promotion, I picked up a Ringke Onyx from Amazon.

Its great, it thickens the phone a little bit and makes it much easier to hold.

u/KruSion · 1 pointr/GalaxyS7

that looks like a nice case actually. I just bought the black s7. Sorta regret the black now that I found that clear back case. I thought the black would look better given that it's mostly covered anyway.
I was thinking about this case before. Not sure now.

u/xSiddeus · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

Yes i say Spigen Rugged Armor as well. It is a very nice case.

u/junkimchi · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

Here is the one for the normal pixel:

Would just like to state that I am not affiliated with Diztronic in any way. I just really liked their case for the Galaxy Nexus back in the day so I decided to try this one out. A note that the XL version is a bit loose at the top. Left them a 3 star review too lol.

u/szol · 2 pointsr/GooglePixel

You really can't go wrong with any of them. I have the Rugged Armor, but I've heard good things about the Neo Hybrid as well.

u/dpyn016 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Correct. I bought a Spigen one that came the same day. Probably put it on an hour after the skin. Case here

Happy with the case and fairly happy with the skin. It's a little rough on the sides. Feels scratchy and I notice it more on the right since it is very slightly off center. Looks flawless around the camera but you can tell at the power button when viewing in person. First skin though so I'm not too mad.
