iPhone cover recommendations

    Just upgraded to a new iPhone, and need some recommendations for a cover/case.

    I'm looking for something fairly slim that doesn't have a tack feel. Doesn't have to be a hard cover, but the case must cover all four corners, because (given my profession) I'm pretty rough on phones.

    I also do a fair amount of sweating and keep the phone (normally) in a beast pocket, so something like a leather case that might absorb some of that sweat could also be an option. I'm not that keen on the sleeves that would require pulling the phone out to answer/play, etc., but might not object to a flip-type case if it's not too bulky.

    So, again, my requirements are:

    Not tacky
    Covers all four corners
    No sleeve
    Possibly leather

    Anyone got'ny suggestions?

    Thanks a bunch,

    I sold my iPhone recently, but this site is fantastic.


    Personally, I like the feather cases. Extremely slim, form-fitting and protects the back of the device quite well:

    How does the screen protector fare?

    Dunno ... never bothered using one.

    I had a case covering the back and maintained the front with a microfiber cleaning cloth. Plus, I babied the thing as if it were small child.

    I could be wrong, but the iPhone screen -- or at least the 3GS -- is pretty scratch resistant.

    If you don't like that case, there's plenty of other options on the site.

    If you don't mind paying a few extra $$, go vaya.com. Sweet leather covers; supposedly handmade (to order) in Brazil (?).

    The wait is not easy (30 days) but let me tell you they are the best looking around and extremely durable. I've had mine for over a year now and its still in good shape. Looks worn like my leather satchel; gives character.

    I have an incipio that I really like, but would also consider an incase if I were to get another one.
  8. I just upgraded to a 3Gs thanks to my first gen phone having an inactive touch screen. When I got the 3Gs, I got an iFrogz case. I love mine. It's a hard cover. Form fitting to the phone, and comes with a screen shield which you can replace for $10 for a pack of 3.

    My roommate and I each have one (he works for AT&T) and we both like the case and screen cover. He actually got the no glare screen shields which are pretty nice.
