Default Otterbox commuter

I've got the Otterbox Commuter for nearly a year now and I'm very happy with it.

It already saved my I9000 several times, including drops against hard floors and asphalt. The phone survived and the case itself wasn't dented.

It is also gives a surprisingly good surface grip when placed face down.

I myself like the design, it is a little bulky but that's what you pay for protection.

Better looking the case-mate in my opinion.

Only cons I can think of is the included screen protector which is awkwardly cut shorter than the actual screen surface. I just replace it with a 1$ one from ebay.

I have an otter box case. It's nigh indestructible. I tried dropping it from over two metres high onto a hard wood surface. No problem at all.

The downside however is that the soft rubber bits are dust magnets. Also it's thick, really thick.

Knowledge is Power. Guard it well.

I was very cheap and just got a hard plastic gameboy case from ebay. Best $3.30 I've ever spent

I've got a simple mumbi TPU case. It's really grippy although it's kinda hard to now press the volume buttons and the power button.

I use an Otterbox case and I wouldn't use anything else.
