What cases are you all using?

Had mine a couple of weeks and have been sans protection near the whole time!

It's black and I am terrified of scratching it!

Cheap cases are shit in my experience I have a silicon eBay one my Dad had and gave to me. It's been used for two months tops and its yellow already and makes the power button hard to press.

Had bad experiences with other cheap 4scases too.

I use a Knomo leather sleeve:

I'm not keen on the hard cases that cover all the sides - I'm not going to scratch the phone while it's in my hand (I've never dropped a phone yet - touch wood), so it only needs protecting when in a pocket or bag.

I'm the same.. Much prefer using the phone without some creaky plastic case in the way.

I use a Joli Originals pouch when it's in my pocket. Phone has been pristine since launch day.

Not a case just a thick vinyl sticker for front / back and sides, they also do cases now I think http://www.gelaskins.com . Only ever used the stickers on iphone 3G/4/4s worked very well, no scratches, not good if you dropped the phone tho.

I really want one for my phone (HTC One S) but they don't seem to do them.

I got a Game Boy case from http://www.head-cased.com (via their Amazon store) thinking it was "3D". Turns out it is a scan printed on. Looks shit. Good job it was only 5.

I just use a semi-transparent charcoal gel cover on my One S.

How to make your 500 phone look like a 20 toy in three easy steps:

1. Buy 15 rubber case
2. Fit case to phone
3. Enjoy your aluminium phone, that now feels and looks even cheaper than the cheapest plastic Android offering on the market.

The case serves a purpose though, even has a bung to put in the earphone/ charging jacks to stop dust and the crap in your pockets getting in there.
Might not be the most pleasing on the eye, but I'd rather have function over form

Took my 3GS out of its case after 18 months and looked like brand new phone.

Also dropped my 4 and case chipped and scratched but not the phone, it has to last 18m-2yrs so needs to last. Plus I like to take care of my posessions

I use a Skech case on my 4s, it's amazing. They do loads more colours for the 5 too and I'm sure they're about 20.

Felt lined, very slightly rubberised.

I've dropped mine loads and its survived!

I always get the speck cases, they are extortionately expensive but they are amazing! I've accidently thrown my iphone across a rough old concrete and gravel car park and it didn't have a mark on it. Plus it seals perfectly to the phone so no grit gets in the case.

The cheaper ones seem to encourage grit to get behind the phone where it secretly scratches the f**k out of it
