Default iPhone Cases

So since I got my phone I've been looking for the right case, I tried a Griffin case, did the job well but it just felt bulky. It's gotten pretty scratched up lately so I decided to look for a new case. VOI!

I ordered the Obsidian Black one, and wow what a difference. It adds next to no weight and it's pretty thin. I really like how it shows the silver line around the edge of the phone as well. Just thought if any of you were interested in a new case to take a look here. They're a tidbit pricey though :(

If I put mine inside anything it overheats.

That's a shame man. If I tether and stuff inside a case it gets pretty toasty sometimes but never overheats. Did you contact apple?

Phantom Mist, Sudden Blush?... lmao Coming from a company where people try WAY too hard to come up with original names for ... stuff, those are a couple of the most ridiculous names for White and Pink I have ever seen. And you're right, that is one pricey case.

I have an OtterBox and it's never given me an issue. No overheating, feels good in my hands, and it's about as protective as cases get.

I've been ordering from cases.com
Those guys are super fast.
My wife spends more on cases then most people spend on phones.

The material on the outside looks like it'll give you a solid grip :D

My girlfriend just picked up one from Welcome to SwitchEasy Nice cases they sure look good and seems to provide pretty good protection. Never hurts to have a look on www.ebay.ca I know my girl order it off there saved a bit of cash.

I love my Xylo T3 Touch-Thru: very sturdy, and protects the whole unit with its touch-thru front screen protector.

I also dig my Switcheasy Capsule Rebel M, killer look.

But my Xylo (function) wins hand down over my Rebel (style).
