    Question which material case is the most protective for iPhone 5?

    Apple has released the iPhone 5 for a few days, I am preparing to upgrade my iPhone because my iPhone 4s was damaged by falls. I order to prevent the same thing happening, I decide to buy a iPhone 5 case for the newest iPhone, there are so many cases made from different materials.. I have heard one new case-EVA iPhone case that is pretty durable and protective. is that true?

    I know the LifeProof cases are pretty top-notch. Outside of that I have no idea. I just have a shell case and no screen protector.

    Default which material case is the most protective for iPhone 5?

    Any of the cases made of TPU will be better than the hard plastic cases. Otterbox and Lifeproof both make really tough cases too

    I have an Otterbox Defender it's a two piece case. There is a plastic shell that goes over the phone and then a silicone outter skin that wraps around the plastic to absorb shock. I had the same on my iPhone 4 and the thing I love about it is that it also has a plastic screen of it's own so your actual screen never gets touched. It saved me when I knocked a glass of OJ on top of the iPhone 4. The Lifeproof is the same deal they make the case water resistant as well as anything else life can throw at it. The Lifeproof case isn't out yet for the iPhone 5 but when it does come out which is supposed to be soon I'm getting one for sure. Then there is a Griffin copy of the Otterbox Defender I can't remember what it's called but IMO it is ugly but looks like it would do the job of protecting the iPhone.

    Lifeproof is hands down the best protection out there with NO bulk and it gets released Nov 4th

    And, I'm not trying to push my preference on others, so I've got no reason to go and join an android forum to talk about how awesome iPhone is. That's like going to a KKK meeting and trying to show people the latest queen latifah movie...
