I've tried tons of them. My work is extremely rugged and I've found that the best case if you really want to protect it is the griffin survivor. My co workers I phone took a spill from 30ft onto concrete and didn't skip a beat. Mine has fallen into about a foot of water briefly. Its still alive and well. The inner box is very well sealed and most all of the dust just collects between the plastic enclosure and the rubber outer case. What I like about it more than the otter box is that it is sealed up. All of the ports seal tight so you don't get dust in the charge port, headphone jack, camera etc. they can be had on eBay for about $30. Typing is a little challenging at first but you get used to it.

I tried all kinds of cases for my phone. The defender, the lifeproof, and others. I returned them all and ordered a magpul case. I've dropped my phone countless times and it is fine.

I work construction and the defender allowed dust into the case and scratched the metal sides. The lifeproof didn't allow dust in but the screen protector was horrible.

In the end using the magpul case with some front and back screen protectors added has served me well.

My fiancée has the Magpul Executive case, and I have the standard Magpul case, I've dropped my iPhone off our balcony smack dab onto the driveway below, not a scratch/dent or crack. Honestly the best way to go, IMO, is a Magpul or Oakley case (their 3G/3GS O-Matter case is/was AMAZING!!), and a ZAGG Invisible Shield screen protector. Great thing about the screen protector, if for some reason it gets messed up or you have to take it off because you got a new phone, contact them and they'll send you a new one at no extra cost except for S&H. You're looking at roughly $10 for the case, and $30-$35 for the screen protector, well worth it if you ask me. Hope it helps ya out in your decision making.
