Proporta Aluminium Lined Leather Case
If you fancy something a little more butch than the Shine then Proporta also offers this smart-but-tough alternative. The name is self-explanatory: it’s a smart leather case that has an aluminium plate stitched inside the front panel in order to provide extra protection for the iPhone screen. There’s also a strong magnetic clasp to keep the case tightly closed, or you can open it up and flip the cover right back so that it acts as a stand. Proporta also do a vegetarian version made out of faux leather for £25.

Scosche glosSEE g4
There’s nothing fancy about Scosche’s glosSEE cases, but they’re good value for money as you get a twin-pack for less than £20, which makes it far cheaper than Apple’s own outrageously-priced effort, and a good choice for dual-iPhone households. The glosSEE is a simple rubber sleeve that covers the back and sides of the iPhone to protect it from scratches. They’re both semi-transparent, but one is creamy white while the other is tinted black.

Griffin Elan Passport Wallet
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...
