Default Generic TPU cases

hello everyone,
Are generic TPU cases reliable from a potential 4 feet drop crack screen ?

Yes bro!!
TPU cases strong enough to handle 5-6 ft drop; however, it depends on the screen size of phone as well!
I keep my LG Optimus G Pro in Silicon case, and my Galaxy S3 in TPU case!

Not with this phone. I bought this one:

Some of the reviewers actually dropped their phones onto concrete and this case protected the phone well. It fits very snug and you get used to the extra bulk fast.

My mother has that case for her Mega. It seems pretty good.

For my e980, I have this case -

It also comes in many colors -

I wanted a case like an otterbox with a holster, and this is the closest you will find. I like it a lot. The only thing I do not like, is it does not have a screen protector, so a separate one must be put on. Many reviewers say it's very hard to put in and take out of the holster. I have no problems like that. I think they are trying to put it in the holster with the screen facing out, which is impossible to do. It was designed to cover the screen in the holster.

I don't believe the case stfly posted has a screen protector either.

Yeah, it doesn't have a built-in screen protector, but those cases look a bit cheap. The primary reasons for my choice were the price and the number of reviews. Got it for a song... I think $2.

I realize it's not very smart to skimp on the protection for an expensive gadget but I got lucky this time. It's a very high quality cover.
