I am a big fan of the i4 design and feel when it is naked. However, just came too close to dropping it several times. I looked at several cases, including a Belkin bumper case with clear back I had laying around. I decided to go with the Otterbox Defender. And YES, I had worries about size, feel, etc... But honestly, after installing and using for a few days, it is very appealing, not to mention the protection is second to none. The holster is somewhat bulky but overall I am pleased with the case. I have larger hands so this case is not for everyone, but it works for me.
I have tried several 1st was the griffin elan form graphite.
Then a Vapor ,horrible antenna problems
then two piece um blue/black with the apple logo on back
now i have the Speck Candy Shell Black and love it, except it shows the scratches easily.
I work on Auto's for a living i need a good case. But i do like the look of them naked.
