    Hey guys,

    I'm a pretty loyal incase customer, but they still don't have any cases out.

    What's the best case you've seen thus far? Looking for ideas.

    Post pics!

    I'm particular to the bumper. But it seems as if you're looking for a full case. Bumper looks simple and clean.

    I second the bumper recommendation. It literately feels like it is part of the iPhone and not a case.

    Right - I'm using a bumper right now, and I actually like the form factor a lot better than the phone itself.

    But leaving the back fully exposed kind of scares me (yes, accidents do happen.)

    I have not felt an Apple bumper in my hand, so can't speak to it. Most of the cases and Best Buy were soft silicone type cases. No thanks, my wife saw with her 3G the protection they offered from a 3 ft drop to a tile floor. I ended up getting two Griffin cases that are a lot like the bumpers but also have a clear place panel to protect the back. The material around the edges was not as hard as plastic, but firmer than silicone.

    What Best Buy did NOT have, and what I want, is a case with a belt clip. Buy far the best 3G hard case with belt clip I found was the one offered by Apple, although I forget its name. I am hoping they come up with one similar for the iP4.

    I bought the ifrogz case from best buy. For a full case this is a real good quality case. Easy to use and makes the phone more comfortable to hold. The only downside was that the sleep/wake button is kinda recessed a little too much in the case making it a little getting use to using the button

    Other then that it has been good.

    Just my 2 cents

    If you like the looks of the bumper but dont want the back exposed then get a Griffin Reveal. It has a clear plastic back so you can see the phone. If i had pics i would post em up. In the iPhone accessories part of the forum there is a review on it. It comes in white and black and the white case looks awesome on the black phone! It looks very similar to having a bumper and you get nice back protection as well.

    Hope this helped!

    I second this, and a good backup would be the Griffin case that is clear.

    I must 3rd the last two posts. I got the Griffin Reveal at Best Buy and I LOVE it. I, too, have been waiting to see the offerings of Incase and Seidio for a "full-time" case (Otterbox when more protection is needed), but I needed something for the time-being ... but I saw the Griffin Reveal and liked it. After using it for a couple of days, I may not be that interested in anything else. It looks really great.

    I bought two cases from Best Buy..the ifrogz LuxeLean and one by Rocketfish.. I'll decide which one to keep and which to return when I get my phone.

    The new two piece incase that comes with two different color inserts is friggin amazing. I can't get over how much nicer the ip4 cases over the 3g ones.

    AT&T stores have a great supply of ifrogz and incase all for around 29 each

    Agree with you. I slipped one on in the store and it was really nice but they only had white at my BB.

    Have you taken a flash photo with it yet? Unfortunately, you may be disappointed...

    Otherwise, its a great case.

    That is because it isn't one.
    Drop your phone with the bumper- it still will crack.
    Put the bumper phone in your pocket with keys, it still will scratch.

    Absolutely agree. There were only silicone cases that were purple/pink, and there it was: a green iFrogz case. It's a great case and it keeps the slim design of the iphone 4.

    i hope marware comes out with the sportshell for the iphone 4. It is amazing for the 3GS.

    I bought the Griffin Reveal too, and it looks and feels great. However, the claims of it fudging up flash photos is true. I don't know why, but whenever I take a flash photo, there is a lot of fog. It shouldn't happen because there is a cut out for the flash, but it does. Anyone know why?

    Maybe blacking out the leading edge with black marger would remove the flash bleed?
