    For me it has to be the Speck Pixelskin HD for iPhone 4(S).
    Now I use it on the iPhone 5, but it isn't as good as the 4(S) version...
    What's yours?

    Feel free to post pics! :)

    I'm typically a bumper guy, having used many. I guess by far my fav is the Graft Leverage. The quality is iffy as the soft touch comes off the black at an alarmingly fast rate after the first few weeks but their customer service is good and they replace some what fast. I had it matched up with my white i5 and a red trunket back.


    If you want a "case" I'm digging apple's leather case. Minimal, good looking although durability will most likely be a long term issue.

    A genuine Element Sector 5 case. A mix of silver and gunmetal with an Element attach backplate with a Carbon Fiber inlay. To me it looks good, is durable and doesn't mess up reception. This is even though it's mostly Aluminum.

    LifeProof Nüüd for my iPhone 5. I have filmed under water with it, I can use it on my mountainbike with the holder. The screen is still usable as without case.

    Came in to post exactly this

    the pixelskin was perfect for the iPhone 4. Not as nice on the 5.

    I have to agree, the pixel skin HD was the best iphone 4 case (and I tried a lot!).

    I currently have a tough armor, but after loving it at the beginning, I have really gone off it. I don't like the hole, or the slippy/sweaty back plate. The volume/sleep buttons are by far the best I have ever seen on any case though.

    Other cases I would highly recommend are the Belkin Candy Grip and a Incipio a frequency.

    However I have a Magpul on order...

    Magpul Executive Field Case (minus the oil). Too bad they didn't make one for iPhone 5, only the more ribbed Field case.

    Could you let me know what you think of the Magpul when you get it?

    If i had to choose out of all the cases for all 3 versions of iPhones i've owned, i'd probably have to go for the Pixelskin HD for the iPhone 4

    It just barely nudges the Switcheasy Capsule Rebel Serpent for the 3GS, the only reason i didn't pick the Serpent is because by the time i got rid of the 3GS, the serpent basically fell apart.

    Nothing beats the candy shell for strong and simple protection.

    I liked my Candyshell for the iPhone 4, but the scratching and peeling issue made me stop using it after awhile

    Speck do some pretty cool cases. I particularly like the ToughSkin Duo case.

    How long have you had it? Take it off at some point and look at the back of your iphone. You may well see small scratches/marks in a circle where the cut out is (if you don't have extra protection on the back).

    I currently switch between a magpul and a spigen tough armor (have a rear screen protector) on my iphone 5s.

    I had a rokform on my i5 before I sold it a while back. I really liked that case...have been debating getting another one. It is 2 cases in one with different mounting options. Pretty handy case.

    Way cheaper on amazon though.
