Best Iphone case and Screen protector?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I just ordered my Black version Iphone 4s 64 Gig.

Could I have some recommendations for Iphone cases and screen protectors
(a nice looking one that would protect it well if it was to drop)

Price for both is up to $30, thanks!

Edit: Recommendations were very helpful, it looks like the Lifeproof case is the best (even better than the OtterBox-- [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK-iTE49Atk[/ame])

Although it is quite expensive, but i guess u get what you pay for

If their are any other suggestions feel free to post them!

The otter box is amazing, you can practically throw your phone at a wall and it will be fine, but it's a bit large. I recently got the red/white SwitchEasy odyssey for my white 4s, and I'm loving it so far. http://www.switcheasy.com/products/Odyssey/

I'm in the same boat as you, OP, having just ordered a brick from Verizon. I've been doing some web browsing and so far the most attractive case I found with decent protection and a slim profile is this: http://www.elementcase.com/ION-4-Black-w-Carbon-Back-p/api4-1210-kf00.htm

by beef with it; $50 is highway robbery. Then again, I may just buy it and skip buying applecare+.

p.s. Odd question, but does anyone know what kind of case Jason Isaacs uses in Case Histories?

Isn't the Iphone scratch resistant?

I know my Droid was as well as my bionic is. Not scratch on my phones. They have gorilla glass. Thought I read somewhere that Iphone has it's own form of gorilla glass?

If it does why would you cover up a beautiful screen with plastic?

To each his own I guess
Yep

I grabbed a SGP Neo Hybrid 2 EX (Satin Silver), SGP "Cube" Back Skin. Both of those items come with an SGP Crystal Clear Screen Cover.

Looks great with the White iPhone 4S.

Yes, it does not provide 100% coverage. Looks damn good though.

Edit// The Neo Hybrid 2 EX is for the "AT&T GSM iPhone 4", but it fits just fine. The Mute button is not centered in the hole.

I like my Zagg Invisible Shield. Doesnt ruin the clarity of the screen at all.
