  • Does anyone still use holsters like it's 1999?
  • Some people do, I see them occasionally.
  • Douchebags.
  • I've been using the Spigen Thin Fit and I love it.
  • The clear Rinke Prism I have on my Platinum G6 looks nice, not a huge fan of the port flaps though.
  • I have that one too. I ended up cutting the charging port flap off. It lets a little more dust in than I'd like, which is visible through the clear. Otherwise it looks nice.
  • I'm actually a fan of the port flaps. I use Bluetooth and wireless charge a majority of the time, however.
  • Picked up the Spigen Neo-Hybrid and the Poetic Affinity (clear). I think the Spigen is very protective, but even the textured bits are very hard making for a case thats very slippery. The Poetic is ribbed around the edges (kind of like Speck cases) and that makes for a very good grip and offers great protection. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NBRE178/ref=twister_B01MY4YKJC?_encoding=UT...
  • My poetic clear case is almost black and it won't come off. Nice case otherwise.
  • Tetded.com. Simple, leather (real leather)-wrapped cases. Lots of grip, no interference with your screen protector, plenty of colors...and that leather smell!
  • Personally like the tech 21 cases. Little expensive but feels good in the hand and looks great.
  • Using the Spigen Slim Fit for my G6. great case, bought it for the convenient indentation for my magnet car phone holder stand thing (whatever they are). This + a glass screen protector and you're good to go.
    i also like that it's easy take off, since i like to have no case when i'm at home.
  • I have the Spigen Tough Armor and love the feel and look of it. Feels better than the same case for the G5, the only thing is the kickstand feels flimsier.. but that is it.
  • caseology is the daddy
  • I like the Tudia TPU case that looks just like the Spigen rugged armor, but has grippy sides
  • Have you tried the tech21 case?
  • I went with something completely different this year for my LG G;. from their ad copy "a sleek co-molded design comprised of a sturdy hard shell and shock absorbing polymer material. Complete with protective TPU button coverage and an ultra-soft cotton finish".
    Cotton on a cellphone case. Who'd a thunk it. I went with grey and the only problem is once you get a grease stain on the cotton it it's not going to just wipe off. I'll figure out a way to clean it eventually. It's the Incipio Carnaby part of the Esquire series and it retails for $34.99
  • UAG Plasma Ice for heavy duty, Spigen thin fit for light duty, love them both
  • I use the IMAK 'Cowboy' case...had them on 3 phones now, great textured finish, decent protection, $6.
