    Default What case should i get?
    Well title says it all.
    Im looking to get a new case.
    I want your guys opinions before i purchase one, here are the 3 choices.
    1: Capsule Rebel Serpant (white).
    2: Incase Slider.
    3: Speck Candyshell.

    I have previously owned a Capsule Rebel Tiger, and an Incase Slider, and loved them both.
    Im looking to get a new case though and wanted your all's opinion.
    I heard that some pople have broken there silent/ringer switches off while removing or putting on the Speck Candyshell.
    So that worries me.
    What do you all think?


    Thanks in Advance.

    Have you checked out the Capsule Neo? I like it better than the Rebel.

    Default Depends....
    First off I've never used the Candyshell so I have no point of reference for you on that one. But personally, I've used both the Slider and the Rebel and I say that Rebel > Slider in most ways. I loved by black slider for the 2g iPhone but the slider fit on the 3g just doesn't seem as tight. My wife now has the white slider for her white 3g and it looks really slick (the plastics are the EXACT same color), but the problem is that it feels really slick too. The awesome thing about the rebel is that it doesn't feel so slippery in your hand because of the type of polymer they use. I have a black rebel and I love it. It's more of a pain to take off but I really love the way it looks and feels both in my hand and in my pocket.

    So that's just my two cents on the matter.

    I haven't had a rebel but now I might look into it. I have a white incase slider for my 2G and its just amazing. But if its loose on the 3G like kiserai said, maybe you should stick with the rebel.

    I have an incase slider black matte. My friend has the incase slider gun metal finish. I love these cases. I used the slider with my 2G and it took such a beaten. Droped thrown steped on and never cracked

    My incase has a GREAT snug fit. The iwood is a pretty cool case as well but they cost a pretty penny about $100 usd.

    I like the otterbox defender so far the only problem I have had is I broke the clip in which otterbox quickly sent me a replacement at no charge.

    From a video review I saw, the power slider was flawless, that is if you don't mind the added size. The whole concept is pretty cool too.

    I'd say speck candyshell, its a great case. Now some people and some reviews online have shown that some sections where it may fail, but then at the same time they also say they are prone to removing the case multiple times a day. So if you are not one to change cases too often the Speck candy
    shell is a great option to consider.

    What case would you guys prefer for having the battery life increased as well as keeping the iPhone 3G looking nice? I use my iPhone a lot and I want it to last longer than a day, but I want it to still look nice. Perhaps an all black case or something similar. Thanks.

    I ordered the Incase Power Slider last night got a brand new one for $50 on ebay=)
    I Hear it adds some bulk but not as much as it seems, but hell a little bulk wont stop me from having my batter last 2xtimes longer.
    ill prolly do some little review on it after i recieve it and use it for a couple days and let you guys know my thoughts.

    Thanks for all of your inputs.

    -Caleb.
