    I had the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge for about a week and returned it within my 14-days because of some issues. During that time, I was using a VERUS case and loved it.

    When I turned in the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, I received the regular Samsung Galaxy S6 (both phones are 128-gb devices), I was using the OTTERBOX (used it for a few days). The OTTERBOX just seemed bulky for me, though I do like the belt-clip.

    I just received the VERUS for my Samsung Galaxy S6 and am liking it. Other than the clip, it comes with a heavy-duty protection case, which I ended up buying two different colors. For what I spent on the VERUS, I spent just as much on the OTTERBOX!

    I wanted to get some feedback from everyone on the two cases.

    Thank you.

    I agree about the otterbox. It looks like you have a lunchbox strapped to your belt when it's on

    Ditch the belt clip. Defender is far less bulky than in years past. The outer layer appears more durable and it is more dense taking some of the bulk. Don't have any experience with the Verus other seeing pictures of it. From my past experience with Defender cases for years, I am confident that my device will be pristine and work just as god as the day I bought it regardless of any drops, no dings or scratches.

    I despise Otterbox cases, the bulk is unsightly and I've owned two glass back phones (Nexus 4 and Sony Xperia) that have both survived numerous drops inside slim and attractive Incipio cases which are really not useful for drop protection at all. I just bought them to keep the glass backs from scratching up

    Have you actually seen the GS6 Defender? I had them on all my smartphones since 2006 and this version is far slimmer than past models.

    Of course. Nothing OB offers is sleeker than cases similar to Incipio though.

    The Defender isn't for every one and either works for you or not. My preference is protection over aesthetics. You get what you pay for. Granted this is my first phone with a glass back. That said and give how much the devices cost, I want to do everything to mitigate the risk.

    Understandable of course, I'm just relaying my years of going for aesthetics over protection for glass backed phones and not having a single breakage from drops. Perhaps I've just been lucky, I'll never know.

    Did you keep the built in screen protector? I went with the commuter but had strongly considered getting a defender and removing the protector to replace it with a tempered glass one.

    I have always used the original screen protector. The one on this version is very responsive and doesn't distort the display.

    How much does it weigh, without the holster?

    I will let you know when I get a chance to weigh it. That's a good,question. It does add some weight which can be good with a device as light as the GS6. It's definitely light enough that I don't notice it in my pocket during the day. That and the grip of the silicone outer layer will keep on an inclined service.

    Do you notice scratches on the silicone? After a few months I noticed them on multiple previous otterbox cases. I might be more harsh on the case than some others though.

    I've only had it since the day of release of the GS6 but it is as pristine as the day I got it.

    I think Verus will be my go to S6 case maker for awhile. I have a Thor and a Verge for now and they have good protection and feel to them. Next I'll get their Iron and Crucial Bumper.

    The device is so bloody thin and light that those worried about bulk need to take another look and not rely on past conceptions.

    I am the opposite i had a few Verus cases and absolutely hate them. To me they are a cheap knock off of Spigen. I have 2 Verus that will never see the light of day again and 3 Spigen i rotate depending on what i am doing that day.

    The Defender doesn't look bad but I feel the 2 layer protection of the Verus cases offer enough for me compared to Otterbox's 3 layer protection which is a little too bulky for my liking. I do wish the my Verus cases offered as much front drop protection as the Defender does,

    Spigen has some cheap looking cases also, especially the one's with those skimpy kickstands. the only case of theirs I'd probably buy is the Neo Hybrid Metal.

    Two of the three are connected. The spongy layer is attached to the polycarbonate shell. Otterbox has really done a great job of slimming the case down. Plus, it has good grip on slick and inclined surfaces.
