Default new case needed

hey guys,

I have a sgs2 and my case just broke (just wear n tear did not drop it) its the SGP Samsung Galaxy S2 Case Ultra Capsule - YELLOW

I really like colour but its barely lasted 4 months esp for that price...

Having read the reviews I see people are highly recommending both:

- case mate tough case
- otterbox case

trouble is i can only find them in black and I really like a colourful case but cant justify spending 20 every 4 months

So what would you do? Is there a nice yellow / blue reliable strong case out there or do I have to go for either one of the other 2 mentioned above, in which case which one would you choose?

Please help

Thanks

Pretty and tough don't mix well together.

I have the Case Mate Tough, it's a very solid case especially for the price ($16 on Amazon). My only gripe with it is that it's a dust magnet, but nothing a quick wipe can't take care of.

The Otterbox Commuter is similarly prices, and looks slightly better than the Case Mate, however I think it's a little bulkier. Yo can't go wrong with either.

If you want a coloured yet strong case, check out the Trident Aegis. I'm not a fan of it's design though.

is the back part where it covers the battery plastic or silicon like?

i have a imak black case and its has a plastic backing, i thought it would be bad at first but i realised it will keep its shape from wear and tear since its only the sides that need stretching.

chose wisely, the case had before this one would apply pressure on the power button and turn the phone off an on.

i have an otter box and it is the best case i have owned.

For me it adds a bit of weight and thinkness to the phone which i like but the best thing about it is the fit. it is perfect

that is very nice indeed however can I justify spending 29 on case lol

I thought my SGP at 20 was expensive and that lasted 4 months only...
