What are the best iPhone 4 cases for protection? I get this question a lot from many new and old iPhone 4 users that are seeking for that perfect protective case. There isn't just one good case out there but many. The key is to choose the right case that will give you the best protection for your iPhone 4. We are going to give you the best options currently available in order to keep your iPhone 4 out of iPhone heaven after the break.
Your best bet on protecting your iPhone 4 is to go with hybrid cases. Why? Because hybrid cases are made from two materials that should provide shock protection and impact protection. Ideally what you would want to go for are cases that have a silicone layer and a hard plastic outer shell. This will give your iPhone 4 the maximum protection against drops. And drops are the main purpose of protecting your iPhone 4 because protecting an expensive device requires more than just a plastic case or TPU (Thermo Plastic Urethane) case. Your iPhone 4 will need to be incased in a shock absorbing material so that most of the force it's being subjected to will be absorbed by the case and not by the internals and glass of the iPhone 4. Hybrid cases are great but thick silicone cases will also get the job done.
Here are one of the best iPhone 4 cases for drop protection:
A hybrid case that features a polycarbonate hard outer shell and a silicone inner layer with a clear protective membrane on top of the touch screen. $49.95.
