Forget those wimpy little wallets and rubbery bumper things – if you really want to keep your iPhone safe you’ll invest in the Defender from Otterbox. This armour-plated juggernaut of a case comes in two parts. There’s a tough, impact-resistant polycarbonate shell that covers everything apart from the iPhone’s screen and its two built-in cameras. The screen does get an additional smudge-resistant protective membrane, though, and the second part of the kit is a separate holster unit equipped with a sturdy belt-clip to keep it pinned by your side as you complete your ascent of Everest.

Proporta makes quite a few cases aimed at what you could call the ‘glam’ end of the market but, my dears, I simply had to get my perfectly manicured hands on this one. The Shine is a flip-open case made out of glossy patent leather, and available in black, red or blue. Inside the case there’s a mirror so that you can check your lippy before going into that important business meeting/hot date, and you can choose a number of different print linings for the inside of the case, including zebra skin or floral patterns.

Really?? A phone/wallet is a good idea? I enjoy carrying my wallet next to my face when talking on the phone. It really helps maximise the efficiency of little scrotes that want to steal my wallet or phone - now they don't have to make a choice!
I have an Rubber Johnie Incipio case and after a few weeks its as loose as a wizards sleeve.
Also it catches on my pocket when I try to stuff it in and pull it out repeatedly.
This round-up was also prompted by the little matter of 'antennagate'....
If Apple was forced to give millions of cases away for free then most iPhone users will probably consider a case an essential item - which is not the case for most other types of 'phone.
I can't believe El Reg still isn't invited to the Apple WWDC after reviews like this? :)
Let me guess...
