Otter Box is pretty much the gold standard for best protection.

+1. I am using the Otterbox Commuter for my Iphone 5. Only thing I dont like is the stupid hole in the back. I dont care if anyone sees the apple symbol. I just dont want dust inthe back of the case.

They are usually a hard case with a soft insert that goes over the phone then snaps into the hard case.

They are very well made and tough.

My wife had one on her blackberry and now on her GS2. and hasn't been able to break either one. And that says alot.

I use lifeproof for my Iphone, great case, its waterproof which is the main reason I bought it. I spend a lot of time on the boat and water and it doesnt hurt it to be totally submerged, it even takes great underwater pictures.

Otterbox is pretty good from what I hear however it does not seal out dirt and dust particles so you can get a pretty dirty screen that needs to be cleaned. If you get sand in there it could even scratch your screen.

I've dropped some coin on cases through the years. I wasn't a fan of the lifeproof case, due to the screen protector. I do like the Otterbox commuter cases, but my 2 year old has broken 2 already.

If something is advertised as cop proof or soldier proof and they can't break it, give it to their two year olds...

Otterbox Defender over the Commuter. The Commuter is slimmer, lighter and easier to carry; however a two-year-old will tear it apart, so will your seat belt and basically everything that touches it daily.

I use an otterbox commuter (less bulky) with a screen protector. Works well for me.

Pocket. Specifically, pants pocket.

Why do I get the odd feeling this is not the correct answer?

I used an Otterbox, I thought it was good, but overkill. I now have a screen protector (a must have) and a snap on case and I travel with it in my left pants front pocket. I make it a point to never have anything in there but my phone and my fabric encased thumb drives/data sticks thus never gets a chance to scratch my Iphone. This works for me and I do have to climb towers once in awhile in my job.

Lifeproof for me. Otterbox cases are nice but way too bulky.

Another plus for Otterbox is that if it breaks, you just send an email and they'll send you a new one for free. I've gone through two on my HTC Evo and they have replaced it within three days each time.
