    I've had the mophie juice pack, the lifeproof case and an incase slider. Just got an otterbox commuter series and I love it!

    Magpul has the best iPhone case I've feels great, is cheap, offers good protection, is very light/thin. Above all, it lasts! All other cases I've used have not held up well at all, but this one just keeps going.

    There are SO many cases that it's really an individual decision.

    Do you want a hard shell case? If so, metallic or plastic? Shiny or matte? Rubberized?

    If you want a soft case, do you want a TPU material? Fabric? Slippery or soft touch?

    In terms of coverage, do you want front lip protection? Back protection? Bumper only? Waterproofing? Obviously the better the coverage, the less "sexy" your case is going to look.

    What is your price range?

    Give us some idea of what you want and then we can help narrow it down.

    for me after a hell lot of research the best case for the iphone 4 out there is the Element Viper Pro case. i have it in aqua/black and believe me it's worth it. google it.

    But, as everyone here is saying, although this is the best case its not ideal for me. It's too beautiful and so fragile because of the metalic color that i'm still afraid to leave it on a table. i know its hardcore metal and all, but you get the point. so now i am searching again for something else.

    hope i helped.

    I have a Element Vapor Pro; it's a sweet case. I use a Power Support anti-glare screen protector.

    Agree with Magpul case. Great feel, fits perfectly, and at $9.95 is a far better case than any $30 case I've seen.

    I got the mophie juice pack plus and love it because I always wanted more battery life.
    Picking the perfect case depends on what's most important to you. You can spend anywhere from 1 - 100 dollars. Speck Candyshells are great too, so are some of the incipio ones.
