These are the 5 best cases out of the 2 dozen that we’ve reviewed in 2014. If you want a full list of all those cases, check out the link to the comparison page that links to all the cases that we’ve reviewed. You’ll be able to find out why we didn’t like cases such as the the Spigen Tough/Slim armors, any otterbox case and the SpeckCandyShell as these case case. There are a few cases that have potential in this Top 5 list that we haven’t reviewed include the Tech 21 Evo Mesh, Griffin Identity, Spigen Air Skin and the Karbon Si.

We were pleasantly surprised with this case from Griffin. The Core is one of the slimmest iPhone cases out there but yet it offers 6 ft worth of drop protection. Now on a score basis, the Core is rated the same as the Thule Atmos X3 but this awesome case is only $30 bucks. The Thule is $45 bucks so something to keep in mind if you’re on a budget.
The Survivor Core is incredibly slim and protective. It is one of the thinnest iPhone cases that we’ve reviewed and it greatly improves the 1-handed usage of your iPhone. The corners of the case also add to the handling of the case and if you’re an iPhone gamer, this case will help lessen the numb fingers that occur when spending hours playing whatever you play.
Now, we do have to say that this case will scratch incredibly easy. Now, for some it may be a deal breaker but given that the back of the case is transparent, you don’t really see the scratches as much. The buttons do start off a little tougher to use but ease up over time.
This was the best case in November’s Top 5 but has been bumped down by the Griffin Survivor Core. This case keeps your iPhone 6 feeling thin and there is a good blend of different rubber types and one of the best things about this case is that it can be dropped from a height of 6 ft.
The buttons on the case start off a little tougher to use and they ease up over time and some viewers have complained that the case isn’t grippy enough. The case is slightly more expensive than other cases but in our opinion, well worth the money
The Tech 21 Classic Shell is a decent all-around case. We feel quite comfortable dropping our iPhone in this case and if you’re still into using your iPhone in one hand, this is probably one of the better cases to get.
There isn’t much else to say about this case other than we feel that the look of the case could probably be tidied up a bit. We’re not too fond of how certain parts of the case don’t look uniform but this is a minor thing. We have the cover version of the classic shell and we’re really not too fond of it.
This is one of the more popular iPhone cases out there. It offers 4ft worth of drop protection and is one of the skinniest iPhone cases out there. It feels very well-built and some like the look of the case.
The edges are a little higher on this case and viewers have complained that it makes the iPhone a little more slippery than other cases which we totally agree. Dust/debris protection is a little lower than others as there are cutouts on the back of the case that exposes your iPhone. The buttons area also aren’t fully covered.
We’re big fans of this case. The Seidio Dilex Pro is a super slim iPhone 6/6Plus case. The design of the case really helps with the usability of your iPhone in one hand as the notches in the case line up close to your finger locations.
This slim case will not provide much protection despite having two layers to the case as our iPhone 6 Plus took a tumble from about three feet and it mauled one of our corners.
As a side note, the belt holster that fits Dilex Pro is quite nice, especially the release mechanism and can be used with other cases like the Incipio Dual Pro.
