    Thinking of buying Otterbox Defender but people say it can cause Heat problems for your iPhone... That sucks (if its true)

    Bought another Otterbox Defender. I like it much better than my iPhone4 Defender. The rubber part is much smoother.

    Got an incipio duo? I think that's what its called.

    Black, hard shell and soft rubberized case. Looks, feels good.

    Only $17 to me :)

    Does it respond quick with the touch?

    Using it without one. Marks from normal usage welcomed.

    It's like the unique patina on my obscenely expensive high end leather briefcase.

    If one avoids perfectionism & gets into acceptance. Life's much sweeter.

    I picked up the clear one of these today in an O2 store (UK). I have a white iPhone 5 and the case looks pretty smart on it.

    Belkin Shield Sheer Matte Case for iPhone 5

    Provides pretty good basic protection from scratches on the back and sides and allows the phone to be placed face down without the screen coming into contact with a surface. I would recommend it.

    I wanted something decent until more cases have appeared and I have had a good look into them.

    I bought it at the Best Buy store. It was 30 in store and 20 on the Griffin website. I had some gift cards and RZ certs so I didn't mind all that much. Plus, I wanted to keep the back of the phone looking as good as possible.

    I got the Otterbox Defender when I bought the phone at Verizon after work today. I'm not all that crazy about the look, but I carry my phone in my jersey pocket when I cycle and I think I'll feel a lot safer with it encased in the Otterbox than with another, less sturdy case.

    I got the Belkin Grip Candy Sheer from the Verizon store. Really love the looks of the case and it while slim it seems like it will protect well!

    I bought a bumper off of ebay for $4.95 (Up to 5.95 now). Very impressed for the cheap price.

    Ill probably just stick to this bumper and not look for any other case.

    I bought a black rocket fish case from Best Buy and I'm pretty happy with it.

    I think i'm going to order an incipio feather. I'm doing pretty well naked though.

    I bought a clear soft case by rocket fish at best buy. I love it cuz its clear so it shows off beauty of the phone and it's soft so it won't scratch the sides of it. I have the white iphone 5 and I hate covering it up and hiding its beauty.
