    Hello again!

    Not being a big fan of iPhones, I am the proud owner of a Motorola DEFY. But out of the blue, an acquataince wants to sell her iPhone 5 for a very attractive price. Main concern for me is durability, because I am a not so careful person. My DEFY had suffered two big drops, one deep water (half a meter or so) excursion and two beach sand travels. So, I am willing to invest $100-200 in a case that endures my errands and particular behaviour (as a matter of speak) if pull the trigger and buys the iPhone. And so, there is the burning question: What case, in my budget or no....:eek:

    Ok, being an iPhone neophite, I am dont know nothing about brands or the same. So maybe a link to the brands you suggest can help me. Or better, some idea about how much $$ to invest if using your suggestion.:D

    Do you have the spigen glas on the Element sector 5?
    I couldn't find the element on spigen's compatability chart.
    Thanks!

    If you don't plan to submerge it in water anymore, the Spigen Slim Armor Case should be sufficient.

    If you intend to check your Facebook while snorkeling though, you'd be better of with a LifeProof frē.

    New iPhone user....!

    Yet I fully loves the Element 5 concept (not the originally suggested, but the Black Ops Case) I was sold in the LifeProof products with their protection. So sold into that I bought a LifeJacket Float and a Belt Clip for the Fre case. So thanks Giuly for the very useful advice. And for saving me a little bit. And yes, bought the iPhone (just telling if I not was obvious enough.....:D)

    So thanks again everyone that posted and gave me suggestions.
