iPhone case thread

Recommended Posts

I used to have a case by Powersupport. It's actually a Japanese company, hugely popular in Japan. They actually sell in the US.

 

I used the self-repairing iPhone 5 case. I know it sounds totally fucking crazy but the plastic is made out of some special material with which minor scratches just disappear. 

 

The attention to detail is insane. Like all the cut-outs are perfectly made so they align perfectly with the plugs. The speaker holes line up perfectly too. 32 bucks for a piece of plastic is pretty hard to justify but give it a go if you are looking for a minimalist one.

 

Unfortunately, I have a Nexus 4 because I lost mine (was unlocked too...) when I was partying with kuya Jmatsu.

Pricey but worth it. 

 

has saved my iPhone from daughter, concrete, atomic bombs, etc. etc. plenty of times.

i've been looking at the flak, does it add a lot of bulk?

no, it's not bad. but the shiny plastic part scratches quickly. otherwise it's a very well made case.

I've been using a black Incipio NGP case for my iPhone 4 forever. It was important for me to find a case that was not bulky, effectively protective, minimally branded, and matte. This case is all of the above and probably the only one I'll ever have. I've had rubbery cases in the past that would collect lint and become impossible to remove from my pocket, but the matte on the Incipio is perfect. It's so firm that it doesn't collect anything, but it's flexible enough to absorb shock. It's one piece with expertly placed holes for the exterior buttons and connectors, and raised enough on the border of the screen to prevent any scratches from drops but not so much that it adds unnecessary bulk. I've dropped it a handful of times and it's been unscathed every time.

 

Mine came with a protective adhesive film for the screen, too. At like ten dollars or so on Amazon at that, I can't recommend it highly enough.

first smartphone was the 5 and have been using the lifeproof case since 

 

love it, and i am sure my phone inside is in pristine condition come time to resell. knowing my history with cellphones though, i probably will be using the 5 for a long time until it malfunctions etc.

I gotta confess I bought the original Apple iPhone leather case when I was slightly drunk.

It gets the job done and it´s very smooth. Could do without the logo though.

I was gonna get casemate for mine (case-mate.com) cos their clear one looks good

ended up with this one tho cos the colour scheme goes well with the gold, front and back, but I'm already looking at new cases cos I dropped it a few times

the phone is fine but the case is showing cracks ):

I've got one of these, and it has held up extremely well after almost 2 years.

Originally saw it in clear // orange but with my back being gold, doesn't mesh well imho + over time probably harder to keep clean.

I think it's that orange band around the case

either way I'll see how long this lasts me

incase clear slider case is the best imho. Dust doesn't get trapped in it, its a good tight fit of hard, scratch resistant plastic and it shows off the beautiful gold. Honestly though, I got tired of cases detracting from the phone. A case is like wearing a condom, you should do it but it's just sooo much better without :ph34r:

 

is it just me or the bezel on the 5s' shit?

 

I agree, my bezel is all chewed up from just being in my pocket with other items. I'm pretty careful with phone but it still gets knicks and scratches on the bezel.
