    Thanks. Loved this case on my 5S but the quality went down for the 6/6 plus gen IMO. Based on your photos it looks like they upped the quality again. Will check it out personally to see if it's worth the buy again. (Although so far I'm content with the Apple leather case; has been able to subdue any urge to buy additional cases :LOL:)

    For those using the switcheasy iglass, have you noticed poor wifi signal? I keep on getting disconnected from wifi when i am using this case. Once i remove the case, wifi strenght goes back to full.

    That depends on what "kind" of case you're looking for. Do you want a case to protect your phone from drops? Or just scratches? Or maybe a case that can still show off your jet black phone while protecting it from scratches and/or drop?

    What seems to be popular for Jet Black is the Switch Easy Glass case. Not a fan of it though.

    I initially have a tempered glass at the back. It's compatible with the case actually but I removed it after a few days.

    You can install one on the front. No problem with that.

    I don't really like it. It bubbles after a few weeks. Choose the spigen one instead.

    I found a very thin case for my phone. It's not the "prettiest" case out there, or maybe because I chose the wrong color, but it gets the job done of keeping my iPhone scratchless without adding bulk.

    Ignore my dusty full screen tempered glass.

    There are some alignment issues on the volume rocker holes, in the sense that it's not centered perfectly, but it doesn't cover the button nor prevent me from using it.

    At the bottom corners, both left and right, the case has a slight thiner coverage to allow the user to remove the case easily.

    Here you will see those 2 corners I was talking about.

    Like what I've said, the purpose of this case is to just protect the unit from scratches. Definitely almost no drop protection. I'd stay away from this "frost" color if you own a black iPhone as it doesn't look nice on it. My sister got a black one for her phone, and it looks way, way better.

    I'd say that this case is probably as thin (if thicker then the difference is immaterial) as a Tozo or a Peel case. The best part? It's around Php100.00 from your suking tiangge. LOL

    Reviews for this case says that it scratches the corners and edges of the jet black iphones, can you confirm? Also how is it holding up? Reading the reviews seems its very prone to breakage. Thanks!
