Had on my black iphone 4:
Incipio Silicrylic (Black)
Walmart.com: Incipio SILICRYLIC for iPhone 4, All Black: Cell Phones
Incipio Silicrylic (Light Gray and Dark Gray)
Walmart.com: Incipio SILICRYLIC for iPhone 4, Dark Gray and Light Gray: Cell Phones
I like the Incipio because its a dual layer protector and its still very thin! I was debating on the gray but I opt to go with the black as its just enough white showing and looks actually pretty cool. I think the gray is a little to busy! Ill take some pictures of it later!
The belkin is cheap and protectors enough but wanted something a little different plus I can switch between the two if I wanted to. I was hoping to find a good case that had a circle cut out on the back for the apple logo but couldnt find anything that I liked and thin and not to bulky!

I was using a Incase slider case but my phone slipped out of my at work and dropped on a metal stool cracking my case. The case didn't survive but it protected my phone from serious damage. I'm waiting on my otterbox reflex case.

I'm walkin' around with a lifeproof case. Pretty good case so far. I dropped my phone once with the phone in the casing. With a two foot drop onto concrete, I almost crapped my pants. Slight scratch to the casing but nothing major. First thing I checked was the screen. No cracks, no nothing. Whew! Checked the call quality, clear as usual. Then checked my camera, works like a charm. Good thing for the case or else I would have a freak attack.

My 4s is the first smart phone ive owned. I am the stereo-typical clutzy general contracting guy. I went with a defender, Pros are that ive dropped the phone several times with ZERO damage incurred. Also I have to be able to use the phone in the rain. I'm 41 and never owned an umbrella. I've never melted and i sure don't expect my phone to.
Cons are that it is not dust/dirt proof. I generally have to remove my phone and wipe it down everyday. Also I'm not a fan of the apple label cut out.

Lifeproof Case, black. I debated heavily on getting a white one, but feared it'd get smudged/dirty and lose the prestine whiteness that makes the iPhone so pretty. I got the black and other than the USB port hatch being to small for anything other than the Apple 30-pin the fact that my beautiful phone is hidden is my biggest gripe. I actually have had email communication with LifeProof about a clear case so I could show off and still protect my case (some of their videos show a clear prototype). Alas, they have no plans of releasing a clear case at this time
I saw this and it looks pretty cool + it has an extended battery built into it. Its pretty slim compared to others I have seen. Anyone have any experience with this. The pricing is pretty steep and not sure if its aluminum or plastic. The brushed silver with a white iphone looks pretty good!

For those using Lifeproof cases, have you tried dipping the phone in water with the case on? If you did, how was it?
I'm going to tons of pool parties this December and January, so I was thinking of rocking the case whenever I go to those parties. As long as the phone doesn't get damaged when using it with the case while underwater, it would be pretty nifty!
