Hi

I have a soft case on my iPod Touch, was thinking about getting similar for my 3GS but a friend has a hard case and it made me wonder what other people have and why?


Also, does the 3GS need a screen protector, or is better without?

thanks
Dave

Soft rubber case because it does not slide around in the car

Incase Slider Case. Great color matching white on white. Fits snug and great protection.

I'm starting to lean towards a hard case. I have a neoprene one on my touch and it does gather dust, but does protect it nicely. Just a bit concerned about the additional bulk of a hard case.

i have an incase slider with a matte black finish b/c i like the way if fits and with the finish it does not become slippery when i have to get a new case i will get the same one.

ok - quite fancied the Griffin tech clarifi but am not 100% convinced on its protection, so I've gone for a Switcheasy CapsuleRebel in safe but boring black

My 1st gen iPhone I had a Speck ArmorSkin. I wanted to protect my $500 investment, and that did a heck of a job. The clip/stand could be used to protect the screen and the case itself did a great job protecting it when I dropped it, which did happen a few times.

When I upgraded to the 3GS, I initially got the Speck ToughSkin which was basically the same case... however the TouchSkin was considerably bulkier than the ArmorSkin, and I didn't care much for it.

Right now I'm using a Incase slider and like it. Though I wish the case stayed together a bit better.

I currently have this Belkin silicone case.



I like it because of the color (black/red), it's got a lot of girth to it, so I know if I drop it, it'll just bounce and my phone will be safe.

And lastly, it has great lay-on-the-table design. So no matter which way it lays down, I know my screen will not even come into contact with the surface it's laying on.

The only thing I hate about silicon cases, is that they are not "pocket-friendly." They get lint stuck to them and since they are rubber, the insides of my pockets get stuck to it and end up turning it inside out. It can be quite difficult sometimes to fish it out of a pocket when you're in a rush.

The next case I'm going to try is this one by Case-Mate.



I'm a sucker for carbon fiber, and despite this case's $80 price tag (for both holster and case), I think this one has a very sexy, yet executive look to it.

It's leather, and is textured. It shimmers so brightly from across the room. After seeing some YouTube unboxings of this case, the phone doesn't budge while it's inside. The fit/finish is superb with no sharp edges or bad seams.

The only thing I'm not going to like about it, is the fact that the top end is completely exposed (to allow the phone to slide in and access to the buttons/ports).

I have a hard case by JAVOedge. It has a tacky feel and is not at all bulky. Its tacky feel makes it easier to hold on to and the design doesn't' hinder thumb typing. It has a hole on the back so the Apple logo is visible. Something that was a plus for me. I also have the same company's leather clip on belt holster. I just got this after the one from Marvel (sp?) ripped. Both are well made and not at all expensive.

At the moment I am using the iFrogz Luxe. It has a velvet lining. I have it in orange. I currently have it on my phone because it is very easy to install.
