    I often encounter some conterfeits of certain genuine case when i do online shopping. in fact, i just make the judgment from its price because they bear similar apperence such as

    and its genuine version i think
    A friend told me that there is in fact little difference between the real one and fake one. just because the former is patented and takes much more costs, it turns out to be much more expensive.
    i have no idea about it. how do you guys think?

    ;) you in fact just read my thought. the point is after making a comparison between the two from the price, i can not but a little doubt the quality of the cheaper. Why can it be so much cheaper?

    I also like the fake one, it's much cheaper than the real one, and the quality is just little different...

    I think it depends on the brand it's impersonating honestly. like I would never attempt to buy a fake Otterbox or Lifeproof case online, there's many smaller brands for cheaper that do a good job.

    But for cases that are purely cosmetic, like Kate Spade or Tory Burch cases, I think people would be fine with a fake. My Kate Spade case was like $50 and it's just 2 pieces of plastic and I'm sure the $10 fake one on eBay works the same.

    I buy and sell a lot on eBay. The problem now is the fake otterbox defenders. They are close in price ie $24.95 buy now. Others are $32 maybe. They look great, have an "authentic" description, sellers won't answer ?s about item. Well, I received 2 fakes. They are obvious immediately. The rubber is slick and flimsy. The charge ports don't close and fit well. It's just sad. So, beware of that case for sure.

    I have a 'fake' Vapor Pro that I bought for $25. Had it for 6 months and no issues, love it, will do it again with the next iPhone!

    I do think it depends on the brand. I wouldn't be bothered about some fake cases but other bigger names I would..
