    Phones and cases can get costly - Anyone have recommendations for case brands with the best warranty?

    This is why I don't buy those that cost an arm and a leg. Just think the iPhone 5 has been out for over a year. At some point those first run of cases will show up on sale. I know I found an Otterbox 4s case at Target for $10. I saw the Otterbox 5 for $15. Incase, Speck, Belkin you can find at a good price.

    I went with getting an iLoome screen shield and a Spigen Ultra Hybrid case. So far it looks nice. Not a lot of wear because I'm good at keep my cases looking nice. I did one time replace my iPod case because it was worn. But after using it for two years I think I got my monies worth ($10).

    The best warrantee that I've heard was Otterbox and Lifeproof.

    Otterbox & LifeProof stopped guaranteeing the device and only guarantee their cases now.

    Otterbox used to have a great rep for covering the cost of a device if it was damaged. I'm sure all the payouts over the years taught them better.

    I am not a fan of otterbox cases anymore but they do stand by their product. If it wears or breaks email them or call them and they will send you a new one. All you have to do is upload a few pictures of the case onto their website and they will send out the new one to you.

    Thanks for the advice! Just discovered Poetic Cases, looks like they're about same price range as Spigen but with a 3 YEAR WARRANTY for their cases :)))))) Might just have to go with them. http://www.poeticcases.com/

    Yeah but the build quality of their cases is nothing like Spigen's. Spigen is top notch

    I bought a Poetic Case for my mom's Kindle for $6/8 (can't remember) but it was less than $10. Two years later it looks like new. I have the Poetic Flipbook coming that I won… can't wait to use it. Either way for less than $10 it works and doesn't show any wear and tear.

    You really shouldn't worry about a warrantee especially on those cases that cost under $20. You spend more man power locating the manufacture than what you paid for it.

    I like the Spigen case because of the build. I came across them from the youtube reviews. I couldn't decide on which case to get so I got the Slim Armor S and the Ultra Hybrid. The total for both was only $25.
