What iPhone 4 cases do you have ?

I am finally changing over to the iphone 4 and I was wondering what cases you chaps use. I am looking for something unique like what is shown below.

It is made by a Japanese company called Abee.

Your thoughts?

It would be minimal compared to the poly or rubber cases that I am also considering.

The Vapor would be even less as it looks to be just an edge protection. And that is what I am looking for as on the 4 the glass goes right to the edge.

I also added the SPG CF skin on the back too... makes it look/feel nice. It's much better than the optional one from Element Case for the Vapor 4.

is the SGP carbon plate permanent, or can you remove it easily? It seems like the Element backplate is removable/reusable.

I hate you guys. I want to pull the trigger on the Vapor Chrome in Silver but the suede on the back seems sketch. Anyone familiar with how it wears?


PS Broker I will eat my words these cases are sick



Also Chewy how does the protection seem with just an outer shell?

thin enough and has a small ridge that protects the phone when it falls face down.
has 2 rubber strips inside to protect back of your phone and adds padding.

I have a zero 5 and it's about as minimal as you can possibly get. Personally I like the design of the phone so I hate to cover it up with a case. Plus I keep mine in my pocket and bolting a bunch of aluminum up to it (as cool as it might look) would keep me from comfortably carrying it.

I'm only using a case because of the reception issues caused by gripping the phone (which I do experience without it).

Details here.

Actually this will be my third iphone so I have been pretty pleased with them.

I had the droid as an option but I wasn't provided with any compelling arguements to change my decision. But if you can I am all ears.

Here is my mini review - I got this for the 3GS, cost 85 bucks lol, but worth it IMO.

http://www.ion-factory.com/CFleathershellip4.php

Good:
The build quality is just amazing, the case was amazing. I dropped my 3GS from high distances, and my case never broke. It looks awesome, and I had many people complement it everyday. The carbon fiber is a plus! Surpringly, my case was very light! Also, the inside is covered with suede, which protects your phone and leaves NO scratches : )

Bad Side: DO NOT GET WHITE, unless you like cleaning. I got white, and let me tell you, the first 3 weeks, it looked SEXY. However, the case started turning blue from my designer jeans. I had to literally clean it every 3 days to keep it looking white. Also, the price is high : ). I had it for a year, gave my girl the 3GS, but something in her purse (pen?) ripped through leather, and we through it away.

What I have now on iPhone 4. I have the free incase case that came with the iPhone 4. It is awesome. It snaps on, very light, and it is a matteblack/clear color so you can still see the back side. I rarely drop my iPhone, but the 1-2 times I have, it has protected it.

yep. this is the only good case they make.
i liked the 3G/GS version of this slider case better though. This one works well and pretty solid.
