And you wont have experiences with other cases if you're going to strictly limit your options based on what you read on the forums. Everyone likes what they like. So far, I have 5 different cases because my style and taste change.
The Agent 18 was highly recommended here; but it seems to be the only one thats talked about the most. In my mind, there has got to be other cases, but I woudnt know about them if I didn't try them out for myself.
why bother with 5 cases of different types when i can read some reviews (by the way, you make it sound impossible to form a valid opinion based on other people's opinions), make an informed decision, and get a case that fits my needs the absolute best? I don't care what the incase "x", or the iskin "y", or the vaja "z" are like anymore, because the agent18 does everything i want it to do, and nothing i don't want it to do.
That case blocks the proximity sensor. Doesn't that bother you? I emailed the iFrogz company a couple weeks ago about this issue. They said they are not going to change the design of this case even though it is wrong.
Too many people have indicated that the Agent 18 does not protect the phone in one extremely important respect. In fact, the case itself is responsible for a great many users saying that the case directly contributed to bezel scratching by trapping dirt and then "sanding" the bezel with the slight movement of the phone within the case that occurs during normal jostling.
I have numerous iPhone cases, and none have a design which would inflict cosmetic damage to the phone.
Isn't the point of having a case to protect from damages, cosmetic or otherwise?
The man has a point and I'd like to rescind my previous recommendation of the Agent18. I hadn't taken the case off my phone since I bought it two weeks ago. There are a few scratches about the bezel, no gouges but it's annoying nonetheless.
