    Default Iphone 5 case. Help me choose between this:

    in a iCenter ( apple reseller ) near us has only this case
    for iphone 5:

    speck nice
    targus
    retro hyper grip
    ozaki
    gosh cross x
    simplism note style

    i tried looking in google but could not find a decent review.
    if possible what are the advantage and disadvantages of
    the cases above?

    if you were me and would like your iphone 5 to be safe
    from few drops and rain( let's say the device was in the bag when it is rainin )
    what would you choose in the case above?

    Slammed using my GT P6200 soon, to be Iphone 5 xD

    Hi justvalencia,

    It really have to depend on what you look for in a protective case for your beloved iDevice.

    Speck | nice:
    Speck focuses more on aesthetics (e.g bright colours and pictures) and less on durability.
    Made with cheap plastic that cracks upon multiple accidental drops.

    Targus:
    Very business-like cases.
    Plain color, minimalistic and with/without extra functionality (e.g. kick-stand for propping up your phone).

    Retro hyper grip:
    Too many accessories for a case. May become too bulky for pockets too.

    Ozaki:
    Needless to say: overpriced!! Quality not high; spoils easily.

    gosh! cross x:
    Gosh! Cross X is a bumper case: i.e. protects only the aluminium on the sides.
    Doesn't cover front and back to prevent from scratches.

    Simplism note style:
    If you have to choose between these 6 cases, I'll recommend you get this for full protection.
    Very chic iPhone case too.

    You could also try online thrift store that ships products to your area!!
    All the best!!

    really? the simplism note style? the notebook
    design is kinda not good, i want a simple case that protects
    my device from few drop and little rain just like i mentioned
    in my post. i guess there's no good case in our local store here.

    Default Iphone 5 case. Help me choose between this:

    I have a Speck case and so far I really like it. I guess if you drop your phone a lot it may not be the best, but mine has survived a few minor drops with no issues. The Speck looks good and seems to have decent protection and I am happy with it so far.

    alright last question:

    What would you choose?

    Belkin case or Otter Box?

    Why and why not?
