There are so many very poor iPhone cases out there that offer very little protection for your iPhone. So whilst reviewing which cases offer the most protection we highlighted some important factors.
- Protection against a cracked screen – This may seem pretty obvious but actually it is one of the most important factors of evaluating whoch case will provide the most protection. It is also the most fragile part of the iPhone and the hardest to protect. Many of the cheaper and lesser quality phone cases just don’t do a good enough job when ot comes to protecting the screen for iPhones. The key areas here that we look for are raised lips, protected corners and of course screen protectors.
- Not too bulky! – You could encase your phone in a brick and your phone would be nice and protected but that wouldn’t be very practical of course! So we have ensured that the phone cases we have chosen below provide the up most protection for your iPhone 6 without being too bulky.
- iPhone 6 Drop Test – Whilst not all the indestructible iPhone 6 cases reviews below include a drop test we have made sure we have included some. You will be able to see actual videos of iPhone 6’s being dropped out of a window or thrown up in the air to actually test if they can protect the iPhone 6 from being dropped. We also look out for labels and claims from the manufacturer that their iPhone 6 case has been drop tested.
