Well I took the plunge and bought an OtterBox Defender for my iPhone 4S. I got it to use on the weekends to protect it while I am outside. I am very impressed with it. I got one that is black and yellow. Love the combo. My wife and daughter have the Defender on their iPhone 4S's. My daughter is 12 years old and believe me she has put it through the paces. She is very tough on her phone and we needed to give her all the protection a case can offer. I will use my Speck Grip during the week and my new Defender on the weekends. It is a nice case. A bit bulky... but that is what you have to sacrifice for protection. BTW...I got the Defender off eBay. Otterbox doesn't offer the Black/Yellow combo.It is the color combo I have been looking for. I think the eBay dealer took a bunch of cases and switched the color combos around. It came in the original Otterbox box. I am very happy with it.
PINK...maybe you should check out the color combos on eBay. I am becoming addicted to my iPhone and have several cases now.

I am finally probably going to get the grip thsi week. We were out of town on what turned into the trip from HELL, especially the return, so I didn't bother with it. I did just use the "heart" coupon code and got more invisible shields that I don't need. lol

Oh and got my Coach Tech case the other day! I LOVE IT! White with pink hearts. The only lil thing that bothers me is when carrying the strap around your wrist the zipper opens a little. Not sure yet if that's enough to make me return it. I can fit a lot of cards in there with my phone inside a case and money in the other inside slot. May get another if I can get past the zipper thing.

Okay most of you all have heard about the lifeproof so I wont even mention it. However there's another case I have in mind that I want called the SGP Valentinus. Modmyi is giving one away, but I wanted a review about it. So I found one. I can go to Best Buy and get the lifeproof for $79 straight fromt he store, or I can order the Valentinus online and it'll come up to $70 with Express saver Fedex. Which would YOU get?

I like that wallet case Greggie. It might be good for a weekend travel thing or for a sporting event or something.

BUT if your ok with carrying both I'd suggest the LP. I'm not hear to preach about it, but lets say, I've had my iPhone since Nov 2011. In that time I can't tell you how many cases I've bought:o off hand I can tell you I have 9 speck cs's 1 speck grip and 2 speck fitted along with 5 OB defenders, with other ones I didn't mention. I purchased an LP last Saturday, and I honestly think I've found thee case that works best for me at this point in time. I took my phone into the shower yest listening to music-it sat on the marble shelf getting soaked, water suds and all. Came out dried it off good to go. Today stepped out, it's raining. Nbd. My phone got wet. So what. Got in my truck dried it off good to go once again. I'm becoming more and more comfortable with this case. You could also go to LifeProof.com and check out their vids on the case as well if your still interested in it. The LP isn't everyones cup of tea, and I understand that completely.
SO, again I'll say it all depends on what you want out of your case good luck with your decision.

Ok so I put that Grip on tonight...I do not love it and Ill probably return it for just a different CandyShell. I don't know if it's the shape or what but it's bigger than the regular and I generally don't care for the feeling of it. It also started in on my case-friendly screen protector so it definitely encroaches more into the screen than the normal candyshell does.
I am thinking I might paper-mache this one lol, and put a pattern on it or something haha!!!

Also, with the cs's, i wished they had other prints as well besides seasonal--i'm with ya on that one
- 02-17-2012, 07:54 AM #475
It's taller and wider by about 1/4 inch in each way, and that is just enough to bother my hand it seems. I did think it was not as deep but the inside didn't seem as protective as a normal candyshell does.
I think I am going to ask them to exchange tihs Grip for another CS, and then I might try to put some Vinyl or something on this one, and see how that looks. Or paper mache it lol
