When you get a shiny new phone like the LG G6, the worst thing that can happen is breaking it. Phones are pretty fragile these days. The G6 is made with glass on the front and back. It may be tough Gorilla Glass, but it’s not invincible. The best way to protect your LG G6 from drops and dings is a case. Even a thin case will add some protection. Check out this list of great cases.

Rugged Cases

Otterbox Symmetry

If you need a case that can take a beating, it doesn’t get much better than the Otterbox Symmetry. This case offers double-layer protection from drops and shock, dust protection, and screen protection. It adds a lot of extra bulk to the G6, but that’s the price you pay for near invincibility.

VRS High Pro Shield

The High Pro Shield is a combination of pieces and textures. The bumper, which is separate from the case, is a hard, glossy, metallic plastic. The rest of the case is a soft flexible TPU with a two-tone design on the back. You get the look of brushed aluminum with the feel of TPU. [Buy from VRS]

Incipio DualPro

The DualPro is one of Incipio’s classic cases. It features a 2-peice design for drop protection and shock absorption. The inner layer is soft rubber, while the outside is a rigid polycarbonate. This dual-layer design looks great and protects your phone without being overly bulky. [Buy from Amazon]

Spigen Tough Armor

The Spigen Tough Armor utilizes dual layers to create an “air cushion” for the G6. The inside is made from impact-absorbing TPU while the exterior is a hard scratch resistant polycarbonate. An added bonus is a convenient kickstand on the back. [Buy from Amazon]

Supcase Unicorn Beetle

The Unicorn Beetle has a funny name, but the protection is no joke. This is another case that use dual layers for rugged protection. Soft plastic on the inside and hard plastic on the outside. The Unicron Beetle has covers to protect all the ports from dust and debris. You can also attach a holster. [Buy from Amazon]

Slim Cases

Caseology Parallax

The Parallax is a two-part case that still manages to be slim. Around the edges is a polycarbonate bumper with a metallic finish. The rest of the case is made from flexible TPU. The back has a diamond pattern that adds grip. This case comes in a variety of color. [Buy from Amazon]

Incipio Esquire

The Incipio Esquire is one of the most stylish cases around. It features a rigid design with soft TPU covering the buttons. The back is covered in a super soft cotton fabric with a heathered texture. The fabric on the back feels awesome. It really gives the phone a fancy look, like the “Esquire” name implies. [Buy from Incipio]

Incipio NGP Pure

The NGP Pure is made from a polymer material that provides excellent shock absorption. It won’t stretch or fade over time like some TPU cases. This case looks like a typical TPU case, but when you feel it you can tell it’s different. For one, it’s thicker than normal TPU cases. It’s also slightly more rigid and resistant to scratches. [Buy from Amazon]

Incipio NGP Advanced

The NGP Advanced is another polymer case, but this one has a grippy grid texture on the back and edges. The interior is covered in a honeycomb pattern that also provides impact resistance. The grid pattern feels really nice and the case is lightweight and thin. [Buy from Incipio]

VRS Design Simpli Mod

The Simpli Mod is a hard plastic case with a leather accent on the back. It snaps onto the phone and doesn’t cover any of the buttons or ports. The leather has a decorative stitching up the middle. If you liked the look of the leather back covers for the LG G4, this is the case for you. [Buy from VRS]

Wallet Cases

VRS Layered Dandy

The Layered Dandy case combines multiple colors of leather for a “layered” look. It comes in black with red trim, brown with tan trim, or red with black trim. The inside can carry up to three cards and some cash. A magnetic clasp keeps the flap from opening. [Buy from VRS]

Spigen Wallet S

The Wallet S can hold 3 cards and a wad of cash. It’s made from synthetic leather wrapped around a polycarbonate case. This case can also be used to prop up the G6 for viewing videos. A magnetic clasp keeps the cover closed. [Buy from Amazon]
