Best Google Nexus 6 cases and covers


The Nexus 6 is the showcase platform for Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, but unlike previous Nexus devices it is no longer the affordable phone that costs half the price of other flagships. Instead, it comes with a hefty, $200 on-contract price tag, right on par with its rivals (maybe just a bit cheaper than other phablets that come with a $300 starting price on-contract).

Having this very large, 6-inch display on the Nexus 6, along with its considerable price tag, all call for some protection that would give you a piece of mind that your phone won’t shatter into pieces if you accidentally drop it.

That’s why we've looked through upcoming and available Nexus 6 cases to pick the best ones. These top Nexus 6 cases and covers come with different purposes - some will protect the phone the most, while others will keep its aesthetical appearance while providing a decent, but not that stellar level of protection. Which of these Nexus 6 cases and covers you like best?

No one can get the damn phone, so why are we hearing about cases -_-

I ORDERED AN iBLASON CASE A WEEK AGO, EVEN THOUGH I DON'T HAVE THE PHONE! If you get a phone and don't have a case then what. I dropped my GS3 the 1st day while waiting for a case....good bye the 1st day I bought it. Now you may think that it is foolish to have a case and not a phone, but don't get caught with a phone like this and no case then drop it. This article has many merits, and points out things that people may need in a case. My iBlason case survive many drops looks clean and my Nexus 5 has not a scratch. I bought my iBlason case last year "before" my phone came in....go figure. That dropping of my GS3 on the 1st day sobered my thinking like you guys all on that single drop....never again. I will buy the case before the phone any day when I decide that I will own it.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OGXQ3LC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This is the case I ordered, and I stand by iBlason. It is the same case that I ordered for my Nexus 5. I put it in my belt clip to protect it from other calamities besides drops. This case is also availablehttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00OGZ43C6/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A209HAH4Z0MGU9 I may use it as an alternate. There is a wait for cases as well as the phone, and my phone might arrive before my case but it will be better than waiting 3 weeks after it arrives

S-Line cases are hideous

I was going to say the same thing. Make the phone first available then we talk about the cases.

The "Best" according to who's standard? Most of these aren't available yet, so unless you have review units how would one know that they are any better than the many other cases you can't order yet?

They are cases made for the Nexus 5, and other phones, so what makes you think they will fail the Nexus 6. I own the iBlason case that came with a belt clip and that iBlason minus the belt clip is a damn good phone case, its not bulky, and protects flawlessly when dropped. You might want to wise up and research things before making foolish statements!

There's a company called Orzly, if you google them and also check their YouTube Channel they have cases and the actual phone! Worth a look. I had a rant about phone radar because I do agree with you to an extent, why make a blog full of cases that are not even available.

Such a bland selection of case as usual. Phone arena seriously do some more research on cases before just selecting the ones from the same companies who make the same stuff over and over. NONE of these case are available and neither is the phone! Look at a company called Orzly. They have the phone and cases! Phone arena do your homework before just posting the usual crop of cases!!!!
