It's all the Apple fans who are too afraid to post on here, because the Android fans will make fun of them. Or it's the Adroid fans who secretly covet the iPhone. Almost didn't recognize you troll since you changed your avatar.

I'm a fan of both platforms, but am primarily an iPhone user. I'm also extremely vocal and not afraid to post.

My favorite type of case would have to be the Lifeproof case for my iphone. My phone is always falling into something that would normally damage it. A couple nights ago I left it on a shelf playing music and it got knocked off and into a pot of soup. Still works like brand new.

No better shell casing that can stand the pounding like the Outerbox.

Otter Box, It provides durability. I also like the design.

I like the simple tpu cases--super cheap and they do the job!

I like the gel style cases. They seem to have the best grip, and hold. I'm a klutz, so I need all the help I can get.

No, it (boy or girl is so far unknown) says 4" is too big. Probably a boy then.

I have used Speck cases.They seem to protect very well and don't make the phone much bigger.

I like the slim form fitting kind, I don't like too much bulk added to my phone. But maybe a certain contest will help change my mind??????

Lifeproof because it offers the maximum protection against everything!

My fav case is the Urban Armor protective case. I bought it from Amazon for the Galaxy SIII. I don't drop my phone much but the SII is so slippery to the touch. This case is durable, and I'm able to still slip it into my pocket. I would compare it to the Otterbox case.

gumdrop case for my tablet FTW! Ultimate in defense of my transformer prime. Tough thick and still looks bad ass

Otter box! You never have to worry about your phone unless you lose it.

Otterbox defender is my fave. I have had one on every phone I have owned!!! Great protection from falls and scratches and believe it or not will keep water out for a millisecond or two-I know!!!

My favorite type of case is the Life proof case, bc I like to snorkel. Being able to take your phone with you for pictures and not worry is incredible.

I like the cheap standard silicone cases. I don't drop my phone too much, but when I do its usually its from hip or chest height so the occasional drop is sufficiently handled by these cheap cases just fine.

A type of case that is like a skin so it looks fashionable but protects my phone without adding too much weight!

My favorite type of case is no case at all! Why cover up a phone's beauty?
