I've been using cheap eBay cases (likely made in China) since my V1 phone in 2007 and have never had a problem. Not a scratch, crack, or dent on any of my iPhones. That being said, I have never dropped my phones more than a handful of times since 2007. I guess if someone is clumsy, than a something like an Otterbox makes sense, but to me it's not worth the extra cash. YMMV.Putting a $700 phone in a cheapo case never made sense to me.. I always buy quality cases even if they cost a bit more..
Do you think I could call and have a 20% discount applied to my account too?I pre-ordered an iPhone 5 black Otterbox defender series case, and I got a 20% discount thanks to the lady on the phone. That saved me $15 or so.
Unfortunately, I think you'll regret that. The normal one has an "orange peel" effect that effects the screen. Makes it look less retina. The HD has a front & back version that works well...just no side protection. I had the HD front with regular back (the full body) and it looks brand new.Not really a case, but I already have my ZAGG invisibleSHIELD ordered. I wanted the HD, but it didn't have maximum coverage, only easy install so I went with the normal version.
I pre-ordered the same. The iPhone 5 may be stronger, and designed better to prevent breaking, but I still want to know for sure that I'm doing my best to prevent it too.Pre ordered my iPhone 5 Otterbox commuter case Wednesday afternoon after the Apple conference
