    Default Best case for iphone 4/4s

    Tell me your opinion. I have searched google and this site and have read countless recommendations and reviews but none point me to a "great" case. I've tried seidio, innocase, case mate, trident and otterbox. All of which have annoyances such as poor fit and less than stellar durability. I want a case that protects without too much added bulk and fits the phone well while holding up to my daily usage. My otterbox commuter almost does the job except the port covers always are out when I pull it out of my pocket and the silicone around the edges of the screen seem to always be "tucked in" in one place or another... Maybe I'm anal but I'm looking forward to the 4s and want a nice new case to put her in.

    I've been using the MarWare sportshell with my 3GS for several years. Great for running, biking and klutzs like me who are always dropping stuff. Fit and finish are pretty good; it would fit in a pocket if you remove the belt clip and i've dropped it several times with no damage.
    i'll be ordering one for my 4s.

    If I ever decided to get a case, it would be one of these.
    Though they are freaking expensive. They look amazing though

    I have one of those - Vapor 4 iPhone case to be specific, and it looks really nice. I'm not sure on how it will hold against a white iPhone though. I have black/black.

    Highly recommend the element vapor pro aluminum bumper cases. A bit pricey, but very nice. And no, it does not affect the signal.

    I'm leaning that way as well. Just wondering how a black case on a white phone is going to look. Ordered the white phone for something different but now thinking I have made a mistake. The contrast may look good though. Hhhmmmm

    Finding the right case is the hardest part. I am really looking for one good case and the Lifeproof cases are pretty cool, but a bit overkill for my daily needs (still they are pretty awesome).

    I was considering the Element Case offerings, but $100 for a nice looking bumper seems a bit much. Case-Mate of course offers a nice Titanium bumper case, but they want $300, yes $300 for a TItanium bumper (just not happening).

    So it looks like the Speck Candyshell is a good choice, just not sure yet.

    I was looking at my accessory bookmarks for cases and remembered I had this one. If you like carbon fiber and want something that is high end yet not over priced (relative to some I know) they have (2) options $49.99 & $89.99 which I don't think is bad.

    Carbon Fiber Shield for iPhone 4S / 4

    Here is the $49.99 case they offer, still a nice looking carbon fiber case.
