For those looking to buy a case for the shiny new Samsung Galaxy S6 the options and choices are almost unlimited. Every case manufacturer around is offering something, but here we want to focus on some of the best durable, rugged, and heavy duty cases to truly protect the all glass and aluminum smartphone.
Picking a case for your new $600 smartphone or 2-year investment is no easy task, and with so many available it can be a daunting task trying to choose something that isn’t junk. Rather than get an average case sold at Best Buy or carrier shelves, finding something a little more durable is our goal here.
The new Samsung Galaxy S6 hits US carriers on April 10th and now that it has been available for a few months there are so many cases to choose from, that it’s hard to find what’s right for you. Not everyone needs a bulky durable case, but if you do, read on for a list of some of the best options around.
Samsung’s new Galaxy S6 has a stunning 5.1-inch Quad-HD display, one of the best 16 megapixel cameras around, an aluminum design with glass on the front and the back, and a new fingerprint scanner inside the home button. It’s the best Galaxy smartphone yet, but needs to be protected from those who are hard on it.
We’ve detailed impressive wallet cases like linked to above, some great battery cases to make the device last longer, and even just a collection of some great cases in general. However, this post is all about heavy duty cases for those who are extremely hard on their devices.
The Galaxy S6 has a beautiful 5.1-inch Quad-HD display with glass covering both the front and the back, and while drop tests have shown it to be extremely durable, you’ll still want to protect your investment. The glass on the back looks nice, but makes the phone even more fragile. With that, we’ll need a stronger case than most. Whether you work outdoors, have kids that love to drop your phone, or just need more protection than your average run-of-the-mill case, we have you covered.
Spigen Slim Armor
1 / 5
Spigen is becoming a household name for offering some of the best overall price/performance cases for an array of smartphones, and offering more designs to meet any buyers needs.
The Spigen Slim Armor (Air Cushion) case is one of the top on our list because it has a little of everything to offer. Thanks to a dual-layer design you get a soft TPU shock resistant inner lining, and a hard polycarbonate outer shell.
The 1.2mm raised lip protects the screen from drops, and there's even an integrated kickstand for easy viewing. This is one of the best cases around for the Galaxy S6, comes in multiple colors, and you can swap out the kickstand for a wallet slot if you'd like.
