The iFrogz Luxe has got to be my all time favorite case. I have tried a lot of cases, including most of those listed and the ifrogz Luxe has come out on top as the winner. This is a very form fitting and great feeling case. Their website does not do the colors justice.
As far as screen protection, get Steinheil SGP Protective optical enhancement film. This is better than anything else on the market. I have used Invisible shield, bodyguards, powersupport etc. and these are superior in comparison. They are also cut just a smidge smaller than the rest so your cases won't lift the edges.
You should check out "itsmemorphious" on youtube. This guy is the iphone accessory review king. Hope that helps.
Forgot to mention that right now ifrogz has 40% off of everything!! Woot Woot!

I have to agree with Redfox although you did use the word most not all. A lot of cases look very cool but offer little protection. I have dropped my phone on the sidewalk several times after a few beers and my iphone 3g in the ifrogz case with the sgp screen protector has not even suffered a scratch. That is why I swear by this case and screen protector. The plastic the case is made of is very hard to even scratch with normal use. I am not even scared anymore to put it in my pocket with my keys, change etc.

^^Thank you for reading...as I stated.....MOST cases however cool looking wont hold up. And somtimes it just depends on "how" the phone hits too.
I've had several cases that held up very well....and some that did not.
A buddy of mine had an otterbox case (supposed to be one of the toughest) on his first-gen...dropped from waist high taking it out of the clip onto concrete while walking and cracked the screen up......
I think it was a mixture of purely bad luck and the phone hitting just right.
I dropped mine NO CASE one time onto concrete and didnt get a scratch

Ive noticed about these phone though....it depends alot on the "hit".....given they have a "glass" screen which doesnt have any give or "flex" like most other phones.
I had a palm Treo one time, I was in an accident (lady slammed into the back of me) and my phone went flying across the car and got all scuffed up....so I told her insurance company I wanted another one...they said ok.
I went to drop it onto concrete to make it look worse than it was before I turned it in to them....1 hit, nothing.....2nd hit harder, nothing.....3rd hit pretty hard, nothing..it just bounced.
I really had to slam that thing into the ground to get it to break.

Thanks for the replies guys...
I bought the SGP Crystal Screen enhancer protector today
from what you guys say and memeforious review it sounded like a better one then I have.
has any one tried the Contour Flick Case??

I use the crystal ones. I haven't tried there anti-fingerprint ones. The thing I don't like about most anti-fingerprint screen protectors I've tried is they look frosty. I like to not even know it is there. I don't want it to look dirty just to mask the dirt!
Little tip when you get yours. It may not look like it has a film on the front, but it does. That sticker they put on to peal it off doesn't work, don't use it. After you install just peal it with your fingernail. You'll see what I mean.

I don't understand cases that don't cover the front of iPhones.....whats the point? Keep the back blemish free but screw the most important part of the iPhone.....the front!!!
12-03-2008, 03:04 PM #37
^^Guess it just depends on the user.....I have never covered the screen, and in almost 1 1/2 years have never scuffed it either.
