I have the OtterBox Defender. I like it but it is bulky. I like that the screen protector is flush with the screen. No air gap unlike the iPhone 5 LifeProof fre. Has the fre for the iPhone 6 gotten better regarding the air gap? Which case is better?

I'm also looking at the Dog and Bone Wetsuit which is like the LifeProof nüüd and even can get a screen protector.

Reviews on the Dog and Bone are mixed, the major disadvantage is the touch ID and swiping up is nearly impossible. I wish LifeProof would release the nuud case for the iPhone 6, as they have for the new iPad. I'm going to an AT&T store to see if they have a fre case and if I get my FAN discount on it. It's worth a try. Wish I could get the D&B case somewhere and try it out.

I like the new trentium: http://www.amazon.com/New-Trent-Full-Body-Shockproof-Interchangeable/dp/B00MXDZFFM

And, they have a clear one too: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00MXEJ8UO/ref=pd_aw_sims_2?pi=AC_SY230_QL60

I have only ever used the Otterbox so I cannot compare it to other cases. This much I do know however, when the iPhone 7 comes out I will be able to sell my 6 for a premium because it will be nearly pristine because of the Otterbox. It just works.
