When it comes to buying a case for your shiny new Nexus 6, the options aren’t as unlimited as most. Every case manufacturer around offers cases for flagship devices, and Google’s Nexus lineup is slowly getting the same treatment. Google has one option available on the Play Store, but tons of excellent top-tier 3rd party accessory makers have quality cases worth checking out.
The Nexus 6 is big and packed full of features, but also somewhat slippery even with the curved back design. Picking a case for your $650 smartphone or 2-year investment is no easy task, and you’ll want to select something that will protect your device, but hopefully also offer some added functions or features. There are cases with kickstands, wallet cases (as linked to below) and more.
Google’s Nexus 6 has only been available for a few weeks, so not all manufacturers have released their cases. However, plenty options are available and more are coming soon, and below we’ve gathered a few of the best available now or coming soon. Check out our list below.
The Nexus 6 was announced back in the middle of October, and eventually released in mid November on Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. Currently there’s no news on the Verizon release, but it should be coming soon. With the Nexus 6 being the biggest launch in Nexus history surely many smartphone owners will buy one, and many of you will want a case.
With a huge 5.96-inch display and a large 3,220 mAh battery it isn’t the smallest or lightest phone, which may have potential buyers worried. And while we haven’t had any issues with it being too big to hold, a case is a pretty good idea. A case will protect it from drops or accidents, save the screen if your lucky, and prevent the usual wear and tear. So here’s a few you should consider. Not to mention the official Nexus 6 case on Google Play.
Spigen Nexus 6 Air Cushion
Spigen is an ever increasingly popular case manufacturer, and this year they have tons of options for the new Nexus 6. From different designs, protections, colors and more. The Spigen Air Cushion isn't the thinnest or best, but a perfect middle ground.
Offering a dual-layer clear hard shell polycarbonate back and four different color options for the soft TPU bumper wrapping around the device. It protects the entire phone. We chose silver, but they also have clear, black, and an aqua blue option.
