    So here's my last question about case:
    What would you choose?

    Speck?
    Belkin case?
    or Otterbox?

    and why?

    Some pros and cons would also be nice

    I have a question about your question... Are you set on those cases? Or would you also consider others?

    I bought two cases for my iPhone 5. I bought the Otterbox Commuter and the Speck candyshell. As far as protection, the Otterbox is probably the better choice. But it is a little bulkier, and not as attractive. Although I do like the cutout on the back for the Apple logo. At first, I liked that the headphone jack and charging port were covered to keep dust and other things from entering the phone, but then it just became a pain having to uncover those areas every time I wanted to charge my phone or put headphones in.

    The Speck case is awesome. It looks really good and keeps the slim profile of the phone. The fit is a lot better than the Otterbox. And it is a one piece design which I like. The one thing that I don't like about it is that the case scratches easily. The Otterbox didn't. You may want to get a white one if you can so it won't show the wear and tear as much. The power and volume buttons are easier to use as well with the Speck case.

    I haven't used a Belkin case in my iPhone 5, but I did with my 4S and I didn't like it at all. The fit was poor and the case got really dirty very quickly. It was a total waste of money.

    Thank you for the advice. I was thinking of getting speck, but i was worried of how it will protect my device from minor drop, While otterbox is to thick that i don't like it anymore

    I went with the otterbox defender case. I used a commuter with my 4s but I suck at putting on screen protectors. The defender case is very well made and fits perfectly with a built in protector. Yes its a little bulky but I'm convinced the phone is safe from any drops or normal abuse.

    How is the screen protector on the Defender case in regards to screen performance? I was interested in the case but I don't want the screen quality or performance to be compromised.
