10 of the lightest and thinnest iPhone 6s cases

10 of the lightest and thinnest iPhone 6s cases
There must be thousands of different iPhone cases across a plethora of case designs. Some ensure the safety of the handset by encasing it in a thick layer of shock-absorbing armor. Others add extras like a kickstand, slots for credit cards, or a built-in battery pack. Then there are the cases designed to be as thin as possible – to provide adequate protection against scratches without ruining the gadget's thin profile with unnecessary bulk. That's the kind of cases we're focusing on with today's pick. 

The slideshow below contains ten of the slimmest and lightest iPhone 6s cases that money can buy right now. And when we say that they're slim, we really mean it – most of the cases we've picked are under a millimeter thick. Of course, that's not the kind of case that will protect your iPhone in case of a 2-story drop. It won't shield it from water or dust ingress either. But an ultra-slim iPhone case is the perfect solution for those who like the slimness of their iPhone and don't need anything beyond some light scratch protection.

Now take a look at the 10 ultra slim iPhone cases we've picked. Is there a model that we should have added to the list? Do let us know in the comments!

It's important to get a case for iPhone under warranty. Apple could refuse to honor your warranty if there visible dent or marks.

I got the 1st one above Spigen AirSkin iPhone 6s case for a few month - I like to keep my phone looking new for a couple of month then it comes off. Here's my take on that one - it's not flexible - it is plastic, it's a pain to take off but simple to put on. I do like how the speaker holes, mic hoe and headphone holes are individually cut out - at first glance it doesn't look like I have a case one, but look again and you can clearly see it's wearing a "condom". The buttons are all exposed and I hate the ridge around the camera module. it does protect the phone from scratches and scuffs on regular use, I doubt it adds extra protection when dropped. I have dropped my 6s twice now since i got it - so far no dings or cracks on screen (but it's not designed to protect your screen at all). Removing it the 1st time I made crack just above the mic hole (above if you lay the phone screen up) - it's not bothering me since you cant see it, but it is what it is. I work in construction, so regardless of how tight it is - dust does get behind it. Anyway - just hope it keeps it unscrached for a couple of month then we go back to getting the life out of that aluminum.

Why would you want to buy a "light and thin" case? What's the point? It's as pretentious and pointless as wearing sunglasses at a nightclub. If you want a case, either buy something that ACTUALLY protects your phone (some rubber or similar material of decent thickness. At least survive a drop from the table, e.g. Spigen SlimArmor class) or don't buy one at all.

I never buy iPhones on launch, i prefer to wait some time and get one when prices drop. Why? Because if I buy aluminium smartphone I want to feel its metal build. I don't want to put condom on it. Anyway, Lumia's polycarbonate is IMO the best material to assemble a phone - gorgeous looking and sturdy as hell. Not one scratch on my father's 1020
