You didn't buy the sleek-looking Galaxy S6 to cover it up with a bulky case. You want to show off that metal and glass exterior while also giving it some protection. Enter the M-Edge Glimpse. The flower pattern protects against scratches and light shocks while still letting that color-changing backside peek through.

Speck MightyShell ($49.95) 


The MightyShell from Speck comes in five fun color combinations, including black and gray, pink and gray, orange and blue, lilac and purple, and clear and gray.

For a night on the town, you may not want to lug around your full wallet. The Stowaway makes it easy to just grab your ID and a couple credit cards. Available in black, gray, pink and white, this case is made of a soft-touch plastic shell with a shock-absorbent core for safeguarding against bumps.

Incipio Corbin ($34.99)

Carrying a wallet is so 2013. The Incipio Corbin doubles as a Galaxy S6 case and a wallet. It comes in black or pink and is made of leatherlike plastic. The front cover features a handy magnetic closure with a couple of slots for ID, cards or cash.

Belkin Grip Candy SE ($29.99)

Protecting against bumps and bruises doesn't have to mean a bulky smartphone case, as the Belkin Grip Candy SE proves. This Galaxy S6 case offers textured edges that help you keep your grip and a simple protective shell. You'll also maintain full access to all your ports and buttons.

iLuv Jstyle Runway ($59.99)

For style mavens, the feel and smell of premium leather is essential in any wallet. The Jstyle Runway goes one step further and doubles as a Galaxy S6 case. Inside you'll find eight credit card slots and a clear ID window. You can snap those two flaps to secure your personal data while still having access to the phone.

Featuring the company's proprietary impact protection, the Evo absorbs and dissipates force from drops. Plus it's ultrathin and lightweight. This smoky-gray case guards your corners while maintaining access to all ports and buttons.
