There's a lot to consider when purchasing a new smartphone case to protect your device. You may consider yourself a clumsy person and drop your phone constantly or could work around water, which could damage your device with one splash.

No matter the scenario, people like to accessorize their smartphones or simply want their devices to be protected. With the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus recently released, you might be looking for the perfect case - especially after early reports were saying the phone might have a bending problem.

Whether it's durability or protection, here are a few new iPhone cases on the market to consider:

OtterBox Defender

 

You might want to consider the new OtterBox Defender if you are the type of person who is prone to drop his or her smartphone, Geek reported. This case has three layers, which protect the device from multiple impacts, and comes with a built-in screen protector.

The Defender is perfect for those who like to take their phones to gym or exercise with their devices on their arms. Its thick casing will limit the chances of an iPhone breaking, and OtterBox has been around for years as a high-quality casing company. You might think the casing is a little too big for your already large new iPhone 6, but if you want protection, this is a good place to start.

Case-Mate Barely There

 

This iPhone 6 case is ideal if you want a smaller and much slimmer layer of protection, PC Advisor reported. The case has "minimum bulk and weight," which is best for those wanting to keep their devices as light as possible.

The case protects the phone's back and sides, but it might not be the best option if you are looking for complete protection. The Case-Mate Barely There is mainly to add some sort of protection with minimal weight added on, the source reported.

Speck CandyShell Inked

 

If you're searching for a vibrant and useful case to protect your new iPhone, Speck CandyShell Inked might be the way to go, Gotta Be Mobile reported. The covers come with floral, galaxy and fashion designs several people enjoy. Additionally, there's a CandyShell Card model that can guard the iPhone 6 Plus and has a slot on the back to carry three cards or two cards and cash with the phone.

Spigen Slim Armor

 

This case is a lightweight shell for your iPhone but remains practical for those who are a little rough with their devices. According to Geek, the Spigen Slim Armor case has two layers to prevent any dings or dents when a phone is dropped. The device is also slim enough to still have a sleek look and remain lightweight.

It's not the standard bulky case that comes with overly protective items but does guard your device against drops while staying slim and light. However, this case doesn't protect the ports, so those working around liquid might not want to consider this for a heavy-duty case.

While there are plenty of cases to protect your new smartphone, breaks and water damage still occur with even the best of protective devices. Personal insurance can give you the peace of mind that your phone will be replaced if its damaged or broken.
