View Full Version : Help me decide on a case

18th August 2010, 04:41 PM
Hey guys,

So I'm meant to get my iPhone 4 in a week's time. The past few days, I have been searching high and low on the internet for a suitable case. The thing is, I still cant decide, so I would appreciate your help.

Anyway, good news is I have narrowed-down the list to only four options.

1. Switcheasy Color - Milk (http://international.switcheasy.com/products/Colors_iPhone4/Colors_iPhone4.php)
- looks very nice
- as close as I can get to owning a white color iPhone

- not sure how durable the silicon is

2. Marware Glide Case (http://www.marware.com/products/iPhone-4/Glide-for-iPhone-4)
- Love the looks, really elegant.
- Like the pull-tab idea

- In terms of protection, it would not offer much besides protecting from scuffs and scratches
- Not sure if its compatible with a Bumper or a thin snap-on case

3. Case-Mate Tough Case (http://www.case-mate.com/iPhone-4-Cases/Case-Mate-iPhone-4-Tough-Cases.asp)
- Excellent protection, dont have to worry about dropping iPhone

- looks a bit bulky
- doesnt score high in the looks department

4. Belkin Shield Shock Duo Case (http://www.belkin.com/au/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=515772)
- supposedly provides good protection, havent been able to find a review so I am basing this on the product description
- Looks much better than the Case-Mate Tough Case

- Back design isnt too bad, but would still prefer the looks of the iPhone anyday
- not sure how thick it is

So guys, what would you choose? I feel like going the Marware route. Its fancy and probably use it with a bumper if possible. However, having played with the iPhone 4, I find it very slim and sleek. I'm afraid of dropping it. Of course, at some point, we all drop our phones, only difference is at which angle and how high we drop it from. The thought of the iPhone glass shattering is not a nice one.

Thank you.

Computer Hardware & Software Australia | Techbuy Australia (http://www.techbuy.com.au) is not too bad as well, in fact they have a lot of the newer iPhone 4 cases and shipping is not as pricey as some sites.

thats awesome

Case Mate looks interesting and durable. I have used the SwitchEasy Colors before and would recommend them for silicon cases. They are durable.

The Belkin looks similar to the Griffin Reveal Etch (http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/reveal-etch-iphone4#) apart different pattern on the back.
