One of the best parts of iPhone and iPods (any version) is the schreen.
Very strong glass. No risk to scratch it: I keep it in my pocket with coins without any cover, and you can clean it in a very simple way.
It will probably break if falling down but it will probably break also with a screen cover.

Hmm, I know that. I have a 4, without a case. There are very, very small scratches, only visible in very specific lighting conditions. I just thought I'd try something new with the screen cover. And I've made a habit of cleaning my iPhone 2x a day with a microfiber cloth.

Hi - I got mine at the Verizon Store - salesman said it was the best? - it cost $15 US and is very clear and durable so far - and you can get "free" replacements for $4 shipping and handling - visit http://www.gadgetguard.com/ to check it out - I have also dealt extensively with Monoprice however I have not tested their screen protector - visit - http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10831&cs_id=1083105 &p_id=9749&seq=1&format=2
Shipping costs more than the product.

They are coming out with all kinds of cases now - I have a very light edge protector from Monoprice.com - but I have seen industrial strength camouflage cases that you can run a tank over - the choice is yours.

Yeah. You are right. All kinds of cases. But still it is not easy to find a case with high quality interior so that my precious screen and back will not get scrached. I dont need a strong case. I want to treat my phone in a soft way XD give him "soft protect". Cuz in the market, too many cases' interior is hard and sometimes scraches the phone instead of protect.

I've got a "incipio" case from my verizonwireless store and I love it... doesn't have a screen, but it's **** near as good as an otterbox without the prices tag or bulk. Verizon also sells the clear screen cover which would work with the case, but given that the iphone screen is the second hardest material next to diamond and my girlfriend doesn't have a diamond ring... I figured it'll be safe enough.

I've looked at these cases:
GreatShield Legacy Cases
Diztronic Black soft TPU case.
I narrowed it down based on these criteria:
Slimness, looks, internal protection, minimal drop protection, front glass protection, aluminium side protection.
I would've gotten a metal bumper, but I've heard too many signal-loss stories.

i just got a Switcheasy tone case - i like it except the 30 pin to lightning adapter doesnt work with the case ( the lightning cord that comes with the iPone 5 works fine) but if you try and use the adapter so you can use an old 30 pin cable it doesnt stay in he connector port. Switcheasy says they are working on a fix but havent decided wether they will give replacments to people who bought the original case or not
Also as a precaution againts scratching the back of the iPhone 5 - i put a Zagg installshield on the back ( they dont sell them separately for the iPhone 5 - only in conjunction with a front shield) - so i have that back protector on before i insert the phone into the case - or even use it without a case
No problems wih signal loss with the Switcheasy case

Personally I love the zagg shield but the smudge proof one also the cool thing is it comes with a lifetime warranty no glare and no smear from swiping also the one that comes with the otterbox products are good too
