Who has the better iPhone case?

Does anyone here know of any iPhone cases that you, or your wife may have? Particularly for the 5, but particularly something that is not egregiously expensive, or it can be expensive. My price range is about $50 to $2,000.

Do they make iPhone cases from sapphire? I would really like a true white leather case, something tender to the touch.

Maybe something with real fur, or if you know something better, please let me know.

Also, I don't do plastic.

LMAO at the 50-2000 dollar range. If you where serious about buying an expensive case I think you can narrow it down for yourself.

The Speck cases are pretty good. Otterbox I heard will protect the iPhone the best, but it's way too bulky imo

My case is jet black. Extremely thin. No branding. Beautiful.

Scrolled down looking for a woman on here complaining about the sexism. Found nothing. Looks like you're right. There are no women on MacRumors. Carry on.

Mine is like this but no cutout for the logo, no branding at all, the camera hole is slightly smaller, there's no casing on the bezel part above the rocker switches, and it's black.

Very nice case.

Ooh, now you're talking. Wallet cases seem like a good idea. But then when I actually want to whip out my phone, I can't. I use my phone too much.

I remember I hit the jackpot with the iPhone 4S, this case was $40, but it was so smooth to the touch and doesn't make your hands sweat.

Some cases, especially the plastic ones should be banned from being sold. Even some of the silicone ones aren't good.

It was like the ones they have in the movies.

Battery cases are pretty prestigious. Although it does add more weight to it than I'd like. I don't know about anyone else but it seems like there's less options with the 5. I know this one guy walked into my job and I should've just ignored all reason and asked him where he got his vanilla case from.

It was a beaut.

Yeah and It doesn't add bulk to the phone, or lift your screen protector

I heard of a company that doesn't make plastic cases. Trying to remember.
