Best Cases for the Galaxy S6

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 flagship is one sexy beast. It features a sleek metal frame and Gorilla Glass on that front and back. All that shiny goodness deserves the best protection you can offer. So before you take your new Android phone out on the town, wrap it in one of these great-looking cases. —Anna Attkisson

M-Edge Glimpse Lace

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.

    Great intruduction, but for some reason not all your fixes work for me. For example, I want to disable the shutter sound on the camera. When I follow your instructions (allowing for the fact that I likely have a different version) I have no option to disable it. My only workaround is to mute my system sounds. Not a convenient option. Any suggestions?
