    anyone have any suggestions?

    i was considering the element vapor case, but it's really expensive.
    I need some suggestions for a sexy looking case that provides great protection.
    Thanks.

    I'm currently waiting for the Contour Showcase;

    I think is has a great blend of looks and protection. Had it for my 3G and loved it. I'm assuming the pics are renders so if the front/base case are clear plastic, I'm sure that thing will get scratched to hell really quick. Other than that, been waiting for this for ages.

    I'm awaiting my free Apple bumper, and an SGP Carbon back skin should be with me within days. From videos, that looks to be an ideal combo.
    I just have to 'baby' this thing for a week or two.

    I think the Bumper is one of the best thought out and highest quality cases I've seen for any iPhone. It's the most aesthetically pleasing as well, if you're a fan of simplicity.

    Totally agree. I think the Bumper is the best iPhone case ever available.

    The Bumper with Power Support films on front and back is the way to go IMO.

    what about the Griffin free case that looks like a combination of the two? I think it is called the Reveal??

    Agreed. If it were made by Speck, Belkin, Case Mate, Incipio, Incase, etc, people would be raving about it.

    So far I own the following cases:

    iFrogz Iron iPhone 4 case

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/iFrogz+...Iron/1039406.p?id=1218212235129&skuId=1039406

    Speck - Candyshell Batwing black

    https://www.speckproducts.com/products/candyshell/iphone-4/240

    Incase Slider - Black

    http://www.goincase.com/products/detail/cl59667

    The iFrogz was just a temporary case but its still pretty good as a slim case.
    The candyshell well I think its almost close to garbage. I bought it at the AT&T store after work and by the time I made it home about 15 minutes later it already had a huge scratch on the back. Also since its really thick its the kind of case that you should remove while charging or excessive use due to the heat that damages batteries. Well I've removed it about 5-10 times and its already seperating at the seams.
    Now the Incase slider is my favorite, its adds very little size to the phone and it has a nice smooth finish with just the right amount of grip. It can be removed very easily for chargin w/o damaging the phone or the case. It also has a large enough opening for the flash and camera.

    I have a bumper and a free pixel skin HD on the way, so I'm excited to see how good the bumper is.

    I'm waiting for the showcase as well...had it for the 3G and it saved my phone many times. I gave it to my GF and it already saved the phone a few times. Heh, we're both a bit clumsy. :)

    I have this case, I got it free from apple and out of all the cases this one has to be the best one. I also have the belkin vue case (revised), speck pixelskin hd, incase slider and the case from rocketfish. But by far the griffin case is the best one.

    Not a big fan of any case. If I were to have to choose one for my favorite I would pick the bumper because of it's simplicity.
