Bought the new iPhone 6 Plus and getting a little concerned about using it au naturel?

With gentle curves and sleek, svelte aluminium unibody, the iPhone 6 Plus is arguably the best looking iPhone, nay, the most gorgeous smartphone currently in existence. 

Who would want to put a case to hide the stunning Space Gray/Silver/Gold color finish? 

Well, just about every iPhone 6 Plus owner who has gotten wind that their beautiful device can bend in their pocket. 

Placing an iPhone 6 Plus in a rigid case could go some way in preventing the phone from bending. 

Having a case also ensures that everyday life won’t so easy make those nasty nicks and unsightly scratches appear on the phone’s metal shell. 

Techno Buffalo’s Jon Rettinger walks iPhone 6 Plus owners through Apple’s silicone and leather cases. 

As one would expect from an official Apple product, these single-colored cases are fashion statements unto themselves, and will fit the iPhone 6 Plus perfectly. 

Both the leather and silicone case features a soft microfiber lining on the inside of the cover, which optimally protects the back and edges of the phone. 

For those who desire a tougher case, silicone is the way to go due to its extra rigidity. Those with “butter fingers” will also be happy to learn that the case has a sticky texture that aids in gripping. 

The leather option provides a soft touch and a luxurious feel. Made from genuine leather, these streamline, premium cases offer good protection without excessive bulk. 

The silicone case retails at $39, while the leather one is going for $49.
