How do I protect my new iPhone 4?

Asked by christybird (813 points ) July 12th, 2010

I recently got a shiny new iPhone 4 (yay!). However, I am a huuuuge klutz (boo!). What are the best ways to protect my phone against dropping and other bumps and bruises? There are a lot of options out there: screen protectors, cases, coatings, etc. Which of these actually help?

The OtterBox Defender Series has been the ultimate in iPhone protection throughout all the versions.

The glass screens is the main reason why I’m not getting an iPhone 4. It shatters really easily, and scratches a lot.

I would get a case from InCase. Their products are really good and durable. They sell some of their cases at the Apple store, but not all of them. I would order online so I have more to choose from.

I just got a wonderful case from a British company called Proporta. It covers both the front and back and is very reasonably priced. Check it out. http://www.proporta.com/F02/PPF02P05.php?t_id=5140&t_mode=des

AAAWwwwwwwwwww dude! Never, EVER get the first release of an apple product! Get the second release in a couple months when they have had time to find and fix any problems.

I have the Zagg Invisishield film on my first generation iphone and keep the phone in a zCover skin with belt clip. The first protects from scratches (lifetime guarantee) and the second provides lots of cushioning (I’m a klutz, too). I plan on the same for my iphone 4.

I’m not particularly hard on my iPhone (other than the time I washed mine in the washer and it sat drying in rice for 5 days), and I’ve found the zagg invisibleShield and a case for the back to be enough. My plans for iPhone 4 (should be here by the end of the month) are to put the zagg invisibleShield on it (both sides) with a simple bumper case.

Best Buy sells and will install the zagg invisible shield, which makes it nice for me. I did have to have it replaced once, so I just went back to Best Buy and let them do it.

But for my son, who IS hard on phones, he loves the Otterbox case.

There are cases called Speck. They have worked out great for me
