I know this is practically the most over asked question, but I drop my phone 24/7 and need a good case. I have the otterbox defender and hate it. The rubber always comes off, it prevents the home button from working (trust me, not a hardware issue, and just aah! Anything that will protect it from the average fall that won't provoke a panic attack when I pick it up. Also, I like to listen to music in the car so one that has a large enough area around the headphone jack.
