    Iphone 3G - Best protective cover (help)

    I've just bought an iphone 3g and on the look out for a good protective case.
    Don't want a big bulky case or one of the flip ones.

    I've saw the Incipio Feather Case for iPhone 3G/3GS posted on here for £10.06.
    Looks rather good but just wondering if there are any better than this.

    I'd probably go with the majority of recommendations I get to this post.
    Thanks

    [FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Navy"]I went for a combo selection of:

    Bodyguardz Skin (or Invisi shield - doesn't really matter but I prefer BG) - front and back.

    AND

    Belkin Infra-red rubber skin thing.

    Together its well protected, but still slim and looks good.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

    Sounds good mate. Thanks again

    I've just ordered the 'invisible shield' from Zagg for my N97. Supposed to be virtually indestuctible and comes with a lifetime guarantee.

    zagg.com/inv…php

    Have a look, you can go through Quidco (20% which tracked same day for me) and I got another 20% discount on site for buying 2.

    I did shop around and found it to be cheapest direct from Zagg.

    Plenty of information to be Googled.

    My iPhone is coming home today after it's little adventure down a toilet. I want a white cover though...I bought a white one for a reason. Do the incipio covers come in white?

    I'm not an expert but I would tend to agree. I should imagine only a padded case (exist?) would offer any 'drop impact' protection.

    Ive dropped my incipio on concrete lol. Lucky it fell on the sides though , then on the back. It wont protect the front fair enough.

    Yea. But its more protective and it also comes with a privacy screen protector so people sitting beside you on a train or plane they wont be able to see what you are doing.

    I'm looking for the thinnest protective case I can get.
    The iskin looks too bulky for me. Pity as it looks good.
    Hoping not to drop the phone :w00t: but want to protect it from scrathes in my pocket etc.
    Think the incipio looks good for the money.

    Cheapest Zagg protective shield?
    I read bad reports about the zagg.
    On Iphone forum people were saying it was a pain to put on 20-30 minutes and recommended to let the film settle and dry overnight once applied. This means the phone should be untouched and remain turned off. Also bubbles on the protective surface.

    [FONT="Century Gothic"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Green"]all the shields are a pain to put on. I'm pretty good at them now, but I went for a bodyguards shield as it protects the sides slightly better IMO.

    You can go get a ZAGG shield for iphone for £15 from carphonewarehouse btw, which isn't a bad price.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
