I need one case for protection, one for style.

    I don't want anything aluminum.
    I am honestly completely overwhelmed with the amount of cases there are.
    I want something with good protection for going to school and using it in day to day life. I want another for going out, that is stylish.
    I am buying the iPhone 4S, black.

    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Protection: Incipio NGP translucent Mercury.

    Stylish: Incase Snap-On smoke. Or Sena ultra slim pouch.

    (Screen protector for front. Clear. )

    Everyday I use the otterbox commuter. When I go to something nice I go caseless, but I have the Power Support front and back film on it.

    I'm really impressed with freshfiber cases for style. I haven't seen anything like them.

    They have 3d design all out of a woven material but it's still sturdy.

    Second the Incipio NGP! I use this as my everyday case and for my rugged case I am using the Griffin Survivor.

    Leather pouch or just screen protectors for style, defer to everyone else of day-to-day since I'm always NAKEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDD! :D

    freshfiber cases - style with bounce

    the design allows maximum airflow, as well as literal bounce if dropped and simple but extremely effective protection on the front. i love mine - but i'm a design-a-holic. there are some good video reviews on the web, look for them.

    Otter Box Defender for Protection. I have it on mine now. I can't imagine what I would have to do to crack the phone with this thing on.

    Right now, I'm thinking...

    Protection: Otterbox Reflex (defender is too bulky for me), Incipio NGP, Speck Candyshell and the Magpul case.

    Style: Not sure yet :p.

    I was looking at lifeproof g2 earlier if that would interest you at all. There's a thread on it that you may check out.

    True, but I can't do that. I'm too paranoid I'll break it!!

    The lifeproof is nice, but out of my budget :(.

    I like my balck Otterbox Commuter for everyday stuff, and go with a bumper for showing off.

    The Commuter is thin, smooth, but offers plenty of protection from drops.

    I like aluminum bumpers, but there are plenty of non-aluminum bumpers that'll class your iphone right up :)

    Don't forget a screen protector. I'm glad I've got one. SGP Ultra oleophobic. went on perfect and it's super clear. and a zagg back piece. little thicker since the camera seems to stick out a bit and the texture gives a bit of a grip to the phone

    So I've narrowed my options:


    -SGP Neo Hybrid
    -Incipio Step White
    -Casecrown Glider

    (Man, I never would've expected to have a dilemma like this!)

    Those look nice.

    I got them for 59.99 USD. I can't find them anywhere so I decided to wrote to them from their web and got them with my FedEx acc.

    First how much protection are you looking for, what's the degree of protection you're wanting?

    For a stylish one if you prefer a leather case you should check out mapicases. I highly recommend it. I use the one I have for business meetings or a night out.
