The list below has ten of the best slim cases that we’ve used for the iPhone 6(s+). There are many others that are highly rated but didn’t make the list so check out the full list of cases that we’ve reviewed.
We evaluate all the cases, in the same manner, to ensure consistency and each product get used for at least a week before we sit down and create a review for the product.
#1 – Rhinoshield SolidSuit Leather
The Rhinoshield SolidSuit Leather is the BEST iPhone 6s(+) case we have ever used. It’s slim, light and provides an incredible amount of drop protection for your iPhone.
Our biggest complaint about the Rhinoshield Playproof was the lack of grip on the case, but the SolidSuit Leather addresses that problem. Using the iPhone in the SolidSuit is an absolute joy. Click here for the full review or check to see if Amazon has any in stock!
#2 – Rhinoshield Playproof
The Rhinoshield Playproof is one of the toughest cases that we’ve reviewed. We’ve dropped an iPhone in the case over 40+ times on concrete and rock and the iPhone still works. In fact, the Playproof is most likely tougher than most tough cases that cost 50% more. It’s light and offers great access to your iPhone and comes with lots of customizable options. The only downside is that this iPhone case is a little slicker than others which means it may fall out of your hands easier. Get it on Amazon now or read up on the full review.
We’re so confident with this case that we dropped an iPhone over 40 times from heights varying between 3ft to 15ft and the iPhone used in the video still works. It’s that tough!
#3 – Spigen Ultra Hybrid Tech
The Ultra Hybrid Tech is a slim Spigen case that is the brightest iPhone case that we’ve ever reviewed. The Ultra Hybrid Tech is a clear iPhone case that offers excellent access to your iPhone. It’s also drop rated though the clear back in the case will show wear and tear a little quicker than other cases.
We say this is the brightest case that we’ve reviewed because the flash from your iPhone will reflect throughout the case, which is perfect for times where seeing your phone ring is more important than hearing it!
For our Spigen Ultra Hybrid Tech review, we’ve given this case a score of 4.6 Eh’s out of 5 which makes this case one of the top reviewed cases to date. In our opinion, this is the best Spigen case for your iPhone out of the several that we’ve reviewed.

#4 – Thule Atmos X4
The Thule Atmos X4 is a slim, tough iPhone case that comes with a screen protector but isn’t waterproof.
The X4 is the slighlty tougher version of the X3 as it comes with a screen protector and still has corners that are drop-rated to 6 ft. The buttons on the case are exceptional, and the adhesive screen protector is top notch regarding protection, but we’ve got a small usability issue which is more noticeable on the iPhone 6 than 6 Plus.
For our Thule Atmos X4 Review, we’ve given this case a score of 4.6 Eh’s out of 5. This is currently the highest rated slim case that we’ve reviewed as it edges out the Rhinoshield Crashguard slightly, is higher than Thule’s own Atmos X3 and is higher than the Incipio NGP, Tech 21 Classic Shell, and any Otterbox case.

#5 – Spigen Tough Armor Tech
The Spigen Tough Armor Tech for the iPhone 6/6(s+) is one of Spigen’s newer cases, and we are happy to say, it’s solid. In fact, it’s probably the best tough Spigen case to date. The Tough Armor Tech is drop-rated, has port covers, has a speaker cutout that projects sound forward which is great for gamers. You can also find the buttons on your iPhone easily (unlike the original Spigen Tough Armor).
For our Spigen Tough Armor Tech Review, we’ve given this case a score of 4.5 Eh’s out of 5. The Tough Armor Tech is one of the higher rated Spigen cases as it scores just a smidge under Aaron’s current favorite, the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Carbon and is way better than either the Tough and Slim Armors.

#6 – Pong Radiation Sleek
Other than killing your productivity, do you ever wonder if all the useless Facebook updates that you get on your iPhone are killing other things?
The Pong radiation case is a unique case because it has an antenna built into the case that’s supposed to provide relief against cell-phone radiation. That’s a unique feature that sets it apart from all the other cases out there but whether that is something you care about, the actual case portion of this Pong Radiation case feels very solid.
For this Pong case review, we’ve given it a score of 4.5 Eh’s out of 5. This means that the Sleek Pong Radiation case is one of the higher rated cases that we’ve reviewed, but there are a couple of things that will stop us from going out of our way to recommend it. Find out why in our full review.

#7 – Expro by Onpro
The Expro is one of the thinnest cases that we’ve reviewed and yet feel comfortable enough to drop it from a decent height. It offers great access to your iPhone and handles quite well.
The edges of the case are quite rubbery, and the corners of the case are unique which improves one-handed usage. The thinness of the case does affect the screen protection as there isn’t much clearance for the iPhone’s screen when placed on a flat surface.
#8 – Thule Atmos X3
The Thule Atmos X3 for the iPhone 5/5S was one of our favorite cases for that device. Does the iPhone 6 version of the Thule Atmos X3 hold up to that standard? Generally, yes!
During our testing period of the Thule Atmos X3 review, we were impressed with the design and handling of our iPhone inside the Atmos X3 case. The case feels thinner than it is and adds a minimal amount of bulk to your iPhone 6 concerning thickness. In addition to all that, the Atmos X3 provides drop protection of your iPhone 6 up to 6.6ft or 2 m.
With all that being said, for out Thule Atmox X3 review, we gave this case a score of 4.5 Eh’s out of 5. It doesn’t score as high as the Thule Atmos X4, but we know that you can get this case at a bargain sometimes.

#9 – Griffin Survivor Core
The Survivor Core is a slim case made by Griffin that offers drop protection of 6.6 ft. To us, this seems a little crazy since it’s so thin/slim and similar cases with that level of drop protection are easily 2-3 times the size such as the Ballistic Urbanite and Tough Jacket and they’re twice as thick as the Survivor Core!
The buttons on the case are a little harder to use but do loosen a bit over time. The clear backs will show wear/tear a little quicker than other cases, and the white colored case may discolor over time.
Based on our time with this case, we gave it a score of 4.5 Eh’s out of 5. Its one of the better slim Griffin cases though the Griffin Journey would be a worthy alternative if you’re looking to get a Griffin case.

#10 – Patchworks ITG Level
The normal Patchworks ITG Level is a great case and is quite comparable to the Rhinoshield Playproof. There are two additional variations of the case which include the Level Pro, which allows you to carry a couple of cards and the Level Prestige, which is a fancier leather case.
The ITG Level is drop rated and slim which makes it perfect for somebody who doesn’t want to deal with the bulk of tougher cases. The back is quite slick and doesn’t have much texture so it will show wear and tear a little quicker than other cases.
