How much are you willing to spend on a smartphone case?

How much are you willing to spend on a smartphone case?
Even in today's oversaturated market, a decent smartphone is still not a cheap commodity. If you want a good-looking device, with stable performance, a decent camera, and good battery life, chances are you'd have to shell out more than $300 for your purchase. And if you want the best of the best... well, we all know how high flagship prices can go.

So, it's only natural for many to buy cases for their smartphones — protectors that defend the shiny device from scratches and scuffs that may devalue and decrease its visual appeal, or even damaging cracks when dropped. But it's not often an easy decision to put a plastic case on your beautiful metal or glass handset — after all, it's design is probably one of the things that enticed you to buy this exact model.

Some people will offset this by using extra-thin and / or transparent cases, others will invest in an expensive case that is itself pretty to look at and pleasant to the touch. There will be the odd eccentric that goes and buys a $1,000 case (check out Advent Aurora cases) for their iPhone made of pure titanium.

Considering that a case is merely an object you place between your expensive smartphone and the pavement, how much are you willing to pay for one?
