    My husband is getting a new S6. He needs to get a case that offers the best protection because he is very rough on things. He is an avid hunter and fisherman when he isn't working. He currently has an Otterbox Defender on his S4 but didn't know if there are any better options. Thanks!

    Defender would be the most durable, or consider the s5 active

    You betcha. For an outdoor person, I believe that there is a camo option.

    Guessing that an outdoorsman need for sexiness is not a high priority.

    Camo Otterbox user here. I live in country and I'm always outside. Of course I'll be trying a lifeproof as soon as they are out.

    Didn't see a camo Frè case. At $30 more, it makes you stop for a moment. I would have gone to this case if the Defender had issues with the wireless charging. My concern is how the external speaker will be affected by the case.

    Ballistic has stylish cases (better looking than otterbox defender , imo) with good drop protection,up to 8 feet.


    https://www.goballisticcase.com/shop...ng-galaxy-s-6/

    Most are cheaper on Amazon but the ballistic page provides a good comparison and plenty of pictures

    I've got the Ballistic Tough Jacket Maxx for my S6, it's a great heavy duty case. I wish they would make their Hard Core or Tactical series cases for the S6 like they do for the iPhone.

    This outdoorsman (I'm an archaeologist) and I use the Otterbox Defender case. I'll be using that until the Lifeproof case comes out, which will make my S6 both dust proof and water proof.

    I'm tore between the lifeproof and that explorer case. Both are really nice.

    Ballistic makes awesome rugged cases but they always seemed a bit klunky trying to hard to be Otterbox. The Defender has had a lot of bulk slimmed out of it and has a more classic look.

    Does otterbox list a drop rating for the s6 defender? I looked on their website but couldn't find it.

    Couldn't find it on their site either. This video demonstrates that short of slamming it on concrete that protection should adequate at 8 to 9 feet being dropped on to concrete.
