    I'm getting a Nexus 6 for my birthday/Christmas. I'm quite clumsy when it comes to phones, so I definitely need a case. Recommendations?

    I think this is pretty decent. I've been generally good with my phones so I've decided to try something different since Otterbox doesn't have any cases for this phone.

    I've noticed this as well. These reviews have scared me of from their cases. I am getting a Rinke Slim case when it comes out.

    Unfortunately I can confirm the Spigen cases are quite poor quality for this phone. I'm surprised because I have a lot of phones and Spigen's cases have always performed well.

    For the Nexus 6 I bought a Neo Hybrid and a Slim Armor. The Neo Hybrid is incredibly flimsy and the Slim Armor has overly sensitive buttons, also the back is scratched up as soon as you sit it down on a table once or twice. A bit disappointed, but I ordered the UAG case as well, should ship Monday.

    I got the Spigen with the kickstand. Hideous and gets poor reviews, but I wanted something to watch movies on the plane with.

    I use this one.....

    Diztronic Matte Black TPU Case for Motorola Nexus 6 [NX6-FM-BLK] - $9.99 : Diztronic.com: Protective Cases for Mobile Phones

    They list it as sold out because the initial batch they got the camera lens cut out was too big.... They claim the sample dummy phone they got was not exactly like the real thing so the hole cut out is a few mm too big around it.. I wouldn't have really noticed as the midnight blue doesn't stand out and I had to actually look really hard... They are sending out new ones after Thanksgiving and told us to just trash or keep the "Bad" one.... It's really slim and tight fit.... I like the minimalist feel.....

    I cannot recommend the Spigen Slim Armor Case for Google Nexus 6 ( Amazon.com: Nexus 6 Case, Spigen Slim Armor Case for Google Nexus 6 - Retail Packaging - Metal Slate (SGP11237): Cell Phones & Accessories ).

    I cannot use wireless charging with the case on and, to add insult to injury, most of my USB cables will not fit into the cutout provided by the case (though, to be fair, the stock Nexus 6 cable DOES fit).

    I'm going to be ordering one of these Diztronic Matte Black TPU Case for Motorola Nexus 6 [NX6-FM-BLK] - $9.99 : Diztronic.com: Protective Cases for Mobile Phones just as soon as they are back in stock. I've had one on my Nexus 5 for a year now and very pleased with it.

    Thanks. I just need the kickstand for the times I want to watch movies on a table so it should work. The second one seems OK. Same as the Spigen SLIM.

    Regardless of looks, I need a case that functions. I'm essentially looking for an Otterbox alternative.

    I was looking for that too originally. Somewhere along the way I came to the conclusion that Otterbox was overkill for this phone as Motorola seems to make well constructed phones. A case that recesses the screen enough seems like it would be adequate. I haven't seen anything even close to Otterbox quality. I saw a few Supcase cases on Amazon but they're so cheap I'd be wary of them.
