    Otter Box is pretty much the gold standard for best protection.

    I use lifeproof for my Iphone, great case, its waterproof which is the main reason I bought it. I spend a lot of time on the boat and water and it doesnt hurt it to be totally submerged, it even takes great underwater pictures.

    Otterbox is pretty good from what I hear however it does not seal out dirt and dust particles so you can get a pretty dirty screen that needs to be cleaned. If you get sand in there it could even scratch your screen.

    I've dropped some coin on cases through the years. I wasn't a fan of the lifeproof case, due to the screen protector. I do like the Otterbox commuter cases, but my 2 year old has broken 2 already.

    I use an otterbox commuter (less bulky) with a screen protector. Works well for me.

    If something is advertised as cop proof or soldier proof and they can't break it, give it to their two year olds... :rofl:

    Otterbox Defender over the Commuter. The Commuter is slimmer, lighter and easier to carry; however a two-year-old will tear it apart, so will your seat belt and basically everything that touches it daily.

    Pocket. Specifically, pants pocket.

    Why do I get the odd feeling this is not the correct answer?

    Another plus for Otterbox is that if it breaks, you just send an email and they'll send you a new one for free. I've gone through two on my HTC Evo and they have replaced it within three days each time.

    Black Otterbox Defender for my iPhone 4. January or February, I hope to upgrade to iPhone 5 unless I wait a short time more for rumored iPhone 5S. Then, another Otterbox Defender unless something else comes out better.

    I'm with patchman. My phone stays in my bag or my inside coat pocket. Our cars have phones and a lot of time Ill throw that in my pocket.

    +1. I am using the Otterbox Commuter for my Iphone 5. Only thing I dont like is the stupid hole in the back. I dont care if anyone sees the apple symbol. I just dont want dust inthe back of the case.

    Ottberbox defender. No only is it the only thing I use, but my kids have iphones that I've passed down to them for use as Ipods, used with about as much care as a brick for years. All like new, all still in their original otterboxes.
