For those with iphone 4's please share your feedback/ thoughts on the case you are using and possible that you are thinking about getting.

I need to get one...but one that has to somewhat mitigate damage from drops..I drop my phones when i am drunk ....erm ya but at the same time I would still like to retain the sleek form factor of the iphone4. I know they are not mutually inclusive qualities ...shockproof while still slim etc but would still like your thoughts...

My riding buddy has an iPhone with an otterbox. He works for FedEx and dropped it out of his truck (they are high). It still works like a charm. The Otterbox has HUGE bumpers for corners.

I have my freebie coming, but it depends entirely on your personal preference.

Scosche has some decent ones out there.

Not a big fan of the 2 more secure Otter cases because of the camera cutout overlapping/being too close to the LED. There should be a redesign and then they would be perfect.

You can try this instead, it still has some minor issues with the LED flash, but it's relatively secure.

Watch the youtube case reviews for iPhone 4 cases if you get a chance.

The issues with the flash are pretty well known.

The other issue is the pathetic proximity sensor problem all iphone 4's have, but this is supposedly going to be fixed in a software update. Make sure the case you get doesn't screw up the proximity sensor :D
