    Iphone cases

    Advertisement



    Hi, what kind of iphone cases do you use? My brother picked up one for me from Uxsight.com. I'm not real fond of phones cases but this one fits very well and I don't think it looks too bad.
    I'm a bit anal with my iPhone cases. I found the harder shell types (depends on product) will damager your iphone instead of protecting it. It will leave marks when removing/installing. Brands like switch easy know this which is why they always have a silicone/soft material before the harder shell get's installed.
    Also, I personally think that a silicone solution is better. I've been more scared of my phone dropping when there is a hard shell on it compared to when it has a thick silicone which I think absorbs the impact a lot more. That's all. What do you say?

    I am currently using a speck case. I got it at an AT&T store. It has the silicone insert and a black hard shell plastic outer cover. It looks like a regular iphone from far away and has good protection IMO. It has yet to scratch the phone after numerous removals.

    The only downside to it is that the plastic shows little scratches very easily. It looks great from 3 feet away but any closer and it looks like spider webs.

    I have the Seidio Innocase II and also iSkin Vibe (Hard flexable gel skin). I like both, but prefer the Seidio case. It does not damage your phone and is lined with felt.

    I carry my iPhone around naked and don't use a skin, screen protector or any protection. Holsters are my thing. I am currently using this DLO HipCase. Nice quality and form factor, but I am not that crazy about the velcro enclosure. The velcro enclosure works well, but it is kind of cheesy in my opinion.

    I have this one on the way. Similar case. but has a magnetic enclosure.

    I'm a big fan or Seidio also. They have great cases and for all phones. I've used them since the BB 7100 was first released years back and have had great luck with their cases.

    I use my mophie external battery as a case itself. I love the thicker feel it gives me not to mention the extra juice for my battery. I use invisibleshield as a screen protector.

    if you dont like the idea of having a case but want some protection while keeping the stylish looks of the iPhone I would definately recommend the Incipio Feather although be warned that it doesnt protect the bottom or the chrome trim.

    I almost started crying the other day when I dropped my iPhone and scratched the bottom, its minute and everyone tells me im overreacting but I went out and bought an otterbox the next day you can never be too careful, now.

    Here is a pink one but they offer MANY different colors, I have mine in red.
