Dual Guard PC+Silicone Case for iPhone® 4/4s - White
Double the protection for your Apple iPhone® 4/4s with this Dual Guard case from Monoprice!
The case comes in two pieces. The inner part is a soft silicone, which snugly grips your iPhone and provides shock protection for the back and sides. It also protects the finish of your iPhone from scratch and dings caused by normal daily use.
The outer polycarbonate shell fits over the inner silicone skin and provides an extra layer of shock protection, combining with the silicone skin to disperse and absorb the shock forces from the point of impact. The polycarbonate shell is somewhat pliant, allowing it to be easily fit over the silicone skin and ensuring it will not easily shatter or crack.
The iPhone volume and power controls are covered by the pliant silicone skin, allow them to be easily manipulated through the skin. Cutouts on the cases provide access to the camera/flash, docking connector, headphone jack, etc. The cutout for the mute button is large enough to accommodate the placement of either the original iPhone 4 or the later variants, including the iPhone 4s.

Looks super cool (Stormtroop iPhone look)
CONS: It's a little big
PROS: Great Price
CONS: No face plate cover, but that's a plus for my son who plays games on it.
PROS: It works great. I've dropped my phone a couple times onto concrete and asphalt there was no damage besides a small smudge where the asphalt scratched the case's plastic. It sounded like a very soft (i.e. well-padded) impact when it hit the ground, which makes me feel like the case is well-designed & built.
It slides into pockets easily, but you can still hold it securely. Pure-silicone covers can be difficult to get in and out of pockets.
CONS: The case causes SIGNIFICANT washing out of photos taken with the flash. I used a black marker to darken the edge around the flash which helps...but for the best photos with flash I still need to take the case off.
The fit isn't quite as precise as the Otterbox cases - if I press on the back of the case along the sides, there's a tiny bit of flexing. This doesn't bother me at all, but it did bug one of my friends (who has an Otterbox). I really don't care this case is like 1/10th the price. It's purely an aesthetic thing...all the holes are perfectly aligned & sized.
The cases is a little bit bulky when compared to a bare iPhone, and I had been considering replacing it with a smaller one until I dropped the phone. Now that I've dropped the phone, I see the reason for the bulk.
I don't like how it shows off the Apple logo. A friend told me the case looks like a storm trooper, so I printed out an empire logo and use that to hide the apple logo :-)
This case LOOKS JUST LIKE the Otterbox "Commuter" case which costs $35. Is it lower quality? Slightly, yes, but not $30 lower! Best case I ever bought.
I bought a few different colors from Monoprice, so you can mix and match the inside and outside colors.
YES, THE WHITE PART OF THE COVER WASHES OUT THE FLASH, BUT YOU CAN FIX IT BY BLACKENING THE EDGE AROUND THE FLASH HOLE WITH A SHARPIE!!
PROS: Protects phone, improves grip, looks nice
CONS: White cover washes out the flash, but you can fix it!
PROS: Solid build, looks great, easy to put on and take off.
CONS: Taking pictures with the flash.
