    Post what case/screen protector your using and give a short review with a rating out of 5 (5 being the best, naturally).
    I want this thread to be for people, like myself, who are looking for cases and not sure what to get. This thread, hopefully, will help indecisive people read other people's reviews and ratings for cases which should make it easier for them to choose a case.

    - ZAGG Invisible Shield (front and back). 4/5
    I love the 'grippy' feel. Before the phone felt slippery, and I actually dropped it when I was buying it at the Apple store. The feel is nice, and the protection is great. I have taken my car keys to the screen with no damage on the screen!

    - Waiting on an Apple Bumper as a 'case'.

    the phone doesn't come with a screen protector? my 3g came with one, not sure if the ip4 comes with one though.

    also, what screen protectors/cases are sold at the apple store/bb/at&t?

    They were running a promotion at the AT&T store on the 24th so I ended up getting an iFrogz case for $15.

    I've never seen an iPhone come with screen protectors. My 3G definitely didn't.

    Didn't come with a screen protector. I bought the ZAGG protector.

    I bought an Incipio Silicrylic Case for the iPhone 4.

    I go over the details and have photos in this thread.

    I would rate it a 4.5/5. Almost perfect, but not quite.
    Here's a Picture

    Thanks Josh. Does that case hinder the ability of the flash on the iPhone at all? I opted against it because I speculated the flash would have less range with the case pressed directly next to it.

    I really like the Incipio above.

    I finally got around to picking up with my iP4 from the AT&T store last night. It only took a couple of hours for me to realize that as amazing as this phone look -going naked with the glass exposed wasn't going to work.

    I wanted to take my time and find the perfect case, so I dropped $20 on a Rocketfish soft gel case. On the positive side, it provides solid glass protection to both sides and makes me feel it can provide decent protection against most incidents.

    On the other hand, it looks/feels cheap. It's functional in the way plastic covers used to protect couches. And even the blue model has a pattern than makes it a more 'bling' like than I'd like It's like putting Jessica Alba in a snow parka. Yeah, she's protected....but she doesn't look nearly as good.

    I'd give it a 2 our to 5 and continue my quest....

    I got the belkin vue while waiting on the otter box and I don't like it. It is almost impossible to get the lock button to work.

    I also got the invisible shield screen protector but I took it off tidy because I didn't like how sticky it felt.

    i really like the griffin reveal. however, like what others posted, there is a serious design flaw regarding the clear plastic back and the iphone's flash which in turn makes all pictures taken with flash on look 'hazy' and utter crap.

    anyway, i really do like the case. it's a snug fit and the rubber isn't a magnet for lint/dirt. the design is simple and not obnoxious looking like ifrogz (not a fan of 'colorful' cases... just seems tacky to me).

    i'm moving to the bumper case and wrapsol in hopefully a week or two (only reason is because of the flash problem). if i were to rate the griffin reveal, i would give it a 4.5 out of 5. but if i take the design flaw that's affecting the flash, into consideration, i'd give it maybe 2 out of 5. this flaw effectively makes the flash totally useless for those who likes using flash.

    seriously great case if you don't use flash at all...
