    Switcheasy case recomendation needed?

    I've been wanting to purchase a switcheasy case. I've heard great things seen youtube reviews still can't make up my mind. Found a site that has most of the desighns except the one in the youtube review. I really like the Switcheasy rebel M and the RebelSerpent? Has anyone purchased any of these cases which would you reccomend? They look almost similar except the M looks a bit Bulky?

    This site has alot of accessories for the iphone. Incipio,Switcheasy,Belkin etc.. that i couldn't find on other sites.

    Haha yea I probably should have mentioned it was me doing the review....I had the rebel m in red at some point. Let me tell you it'd definitely a unique and appealing case....but it does leave the chrome exposed and I noticed a few scratches on the chrome, so I took it off before it did anymore damage.

    The texture of the croc skin looks pretty cool.

    Does it seem harder to use the screen since it's covers somewhat by hiding the bezel? Right now I like having an open bezel that's visible just the top which my agent 18 ecoshield does. Feels like I can actually slide my finger off the while screen which I like.

    Not at all....even though it does offer a lay on the table design...it's not deep enough that it will get in the way if you slide ur finger across the screen. Unlike some silicone cases I have that lift up when u swipe ur finger. The rounded edge of the reptile doesn't affect that.

    Yeah like the iSkin Solo cases, they lift off the edges really easy. How is the back of the case resistant to scratches?

    Surprisingly good....not sure if it's the material they used but it doesn't appear that scratches will form on the back....if anything the reptile pattern will hide them very well...one thing though....as I noted in my vid....u have to becareful when putting the case on and off, u can easily scratch up and chew up the silicone buttons since the case is such a tight fit

    I agree, mine cracked in 2 places, the hard plastic ring is not strong enough.
