More iPhone/iPod Best of: Cases & Covers


This is of course purely subjective.

Cases – I have already gone through a few cases. I liked and disliked each for different reasons.

  • My first case was the Griffin Leather Case with EasyDock for iPhone 3G, 3G S (Black,Chrome) This is a very nice looking case, strong and handsome (like moi!). I was very happy with it but I noticed an odd thing. My pictures didn’t look nearly as crisp as those taken by other iPhones. I realized after a time that it was the chrome ring around the camera opening that was reflecting light back into the lens! So I tried a few more cases.
  • I then tried a Case Logic iPhone®3G Silicone Case (with a tire tread pattern) which was very nice but the black started to come off quickly. Not leaving a mess, but just a white rim around the case. It was easy to get on and off, however, and was comfortable to hold. Always pulled my pocket inside out when I would retrieve my phone though.
  • The iFrogz Luxe Case for iPhone 3G, 3G S (Blue,Black) is by far my favorite case. It is relatively thin, yet incredibly sturdy and good looking, with a slightly velvet touch to it. The bottom half comes off which is a requirement as a doc my iPhone each night. I have no complaints at all about this case (other than some of the paint has chipped off, but that is hardly the maker’s fault) and the costumer service has been great.

Screen covers & shields. I mentioned in an earlier post that I am a cheapskate and tend to only get free iPhone apps, etc. As a result I used the cheap plastic shields that came free with my case. Lousy. All of them. Finally I listened to my brother and paid the extra $$ for a Zagg shield. The Zagg InvisibleShield (which is actually quite inexpensive right now from Amazon at $9) is tremendous. Just be sure to view their video and follow the directions carefully. I had a bit of a problem with the sponge they sent to spread the special fluid on the shield, but they quickly sent a replacement free of charge.

So that is about it for my suggestions on iPhone and iPod Touch accoutrement. Later today I will return to more traditional fare of biblical analysis. I am finally diving into Ruth more deeply and I still want to plow ahead with Gen. 2.
