Help me pick an iPhone 4S case

So the preorder will be here Friday and after 2 years without an iPhone I dont know whats what anymore. Ive found a couple cases I really like but price under $100 preferred.

Ones I've found: http://www.grovemade.com/collections...s/submarine-i4

and http://www.geardiary.com/2011/03/23/...mited-edition/

any other ideas?

100 bucks for a case? Just get a 20 dollar bumper or eBay skin for 2.99.

The wooden one with the submarine looks kinda like a kids piece and the element one kills reception since it wraps around the antenna

I said under $100..meaning please do not recommend absurdly expensive cases.

why use a case?

Apple spent millions on getting the iphone to its current thickness, and you guys add a case.

It's like using condoms during sex. Unless absolutely have to (ie. fucking around and avoid STDs, or your girl doesn't go on the pill), why?

Plus, dirt get under the casing and ruins the phone faster than leaving the phone out.

incase slider

I've had these on all my iPhones since the 3G and imo, they're the best case possible.

You can pick one up for under $10 on eBay (for the 4)

^^ looks cool.

I have one of these, it's an excellent case. Fit is better than any composit I've seen. Fits so well that no dirt gets under the case at all. Still nice and slim, but super durable.

Ya the gasket is an aesthetic case really. It doesn't protect the top of the phone at all. Really it's just a killer looking back protector that will make your gearhead friends drool.

When i know the phone is going to see some possible abuse etc (a concert, camping, cycling), i plan on slipping on a TPU. ID American also makes a slick TPU case called the skyline.

Get some 3M Carbon Di-Noc wrap and a screen protector and call it a day.
