    Which do you think protects a smartphone better? One of those "pull tab" leather cases which you slip your phone in and out for use, or a silicone cover which permanently wraps around the back of the phone?


    I'd think that the case is better as it protects the front as well, especially if you throw your phone in a bag. But then it's not actually on the phone when you're using it, so you're in trouble if you drop it on the floor!


    What do you think and what kind of case/ cover do you use for your phone?

    I would recommend a silicone cover in your case but a nice robust silicone cover, not the cheap quality ones sold at eBay. Try Diztronic, it makes the best TPU cases out there.

    About leather cases, you do get a attached leather case which protects the front + back all the time, another company I would recommend is Noreve, it is a french company which makes pretty awesome cases.

    I use UAG case on my GS3, It is a fusion of the TPU and Hard Plastic. I review cases so I know a thing or two about it. Happy to Help!

    For drops, neither. Go for some form of polycarbonate or PC-TPU hybrid.

    For scratches pretty much anything will do as long as everything ends up covered!
