obviously protection is important, but i would never buy an otterbox because they make the phone twice as big as it needs to be, and infinitely uglier imho.
^^ ya you're right, i was just referring to the original otterbox, since most consider it one of the most protective cases for iDevices.
I switch back and forth between no case and the Reveal Etch from Griffin
I usually throw the case on on friday night to get me through the weekend. Don't tend to drop or break my phone during the work week!
I like the look of the reveal and the reveal etch. Have you ever dropped your phone using this case? How was the protection if so?
