iPhone 6’s beauty and thinnest are also its greatest weakness. It could be scarred easily, but for non-conforming, style-conscious users, to wrap the device up in plastic case for protection is an insult to phone’s design. We have to stress that not everyone is on the same page, but for those who are, having a pretty case that doesn’t compromise on the phone’s original design is imperative, one that Twelve South’s SurfacePad for iPhone 6 is cut out for. Available for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the SurfacePad features Twelve South’s trademark premium quality, boasting a buttery soft Nappa leather that gives your lovely device the protection it needs without beefing up the form factor. It will certainly add some thickness, but it will be as minimal as it can gets.
The leather material offers the grip which the aluminum can’t and gives it the premium feel that plastic case can’t offer. Additionally, reinforced stitching around the perimeter adds durability and style, while soft microfiber on the inside keeps the device free from scratch and further adds to the premium feel. Also on the inside are two card slots, ideal for your bank cards or ID, or anything you fancy, and last but not least, it also doubles as a dutiful stand, propping up your device for hands-free viewing, FaceTime, or taking selfies. The SurfacePad for iPhone 6 comes in a choice of Black, Red, White and Camel, and retails for $39.99 a pop. Granted that it may not be the most comprehensive protection for your iDevice, but it is a balance between aesthetic and protection. As always, the choice is yours, but we think this particular device will definitely tickle the soft spot of style-conscious gadget users. Scroll down for a few more look.
