I'm a case flip flopper. When I get a new phone, I immediately start looking at cases. I buy roughly 11ty of them, and then usually end up either using the thinnest one or saying "Fuck this" and just going without a case, maybe with a screen protector.
I think maybe, possibly, the Caudabe cases might be the end of that vicious cycle..
I have gotten into the habit of getting insurance on my cell phones. They've gotten super expensive for high end cell phones and I'm now at the point in my life where I don't need any interruptions in communication. In short, I need a minimalistic case. If you're looking for something like an Otterbox, this is likely not the case for you. If, like me, you just want something to keep your phone from getting scratched up, read on.
Veil vs Veil XT
As illustrated in the above pictures, the difference between the standard Veil and the XT is bottom coverage (feel free to make your own joke). The standard veil covers just the corners while the XT goes all the way around the phone. I have both and prefer the XT. I don't really care about the coverage, and the standard veil might actually be ideal for some (more on that later), but I dislike the tiny little ridges on the standard model where the coverage stops. It's where my pinky sits to hold the phone, and makes it a little uncomfortable for me.
I haven't had this issue, but my buddy Merk says the XT makes one of his third party lightning cables not work. My amazon basics cable works fine, but it's something to keep in mind. If you have an especially full figured charging cable, you might not want to opt for the XT.
That difference aside, the cases are identical in thickness and coverage on all other areas, so I'm just gonna throw up a gallery here.
This is by far the best minimalist case I've found, not just for the iPhone, but for any phone ever. The material is smooth but much grippier than the naked iPhone. The coverage, especially on the XT, will prevent any minor scratches that would negatively impact resale value without making your phone a brick.
Service and Support
I originally ordered a clear 6S Plus Veil. I was sent a smoked 6S Plus Veil. I emailed support and they replied quickly, had me send a pic to illustrate the problem, then immediately shipped me the correct case. They even let me keep the wrong one that they sent! I know it's just a $20 case, but I was so impressed by their customer service it pushed me over the edge to buy the blue XT you see pictured. I just noticed they have a Mother's Day special going on as I went to the site to get links for this article (LOVEMOM for 20% off through Sunday 5/8), so I ordered a clear XT. Now I have 4 6S Plus cases, which brings me to...
I figure I might as well share the love. Look for where I originally post this article on Google Plus and Facebook and share the post. I'll pick two random people who shared to receive one of the Veil cases I have. One is clear and one is smoked. Both are in 100% new condition, used only long enough to try them on. Whomever I randomly pick first can choose which color they want. This is for a Caudabe Veil (not Veil XT) in Smoke or Frost for an iPhone 6S Plus. It won't fit any other model. I'll pick a winner at 12:01am CST on Sunday, May 15, 2016 (So saturday night).
