It is the most popular phone on the market around the world, an iPhone. The vast majority of students own an iPhone, but if someone is going to splurge on a fancy expensive phone, they will need a case to protect it. Many people only wear a case for looks, others for protection.
One case that is almost necessary if someone is constantly taking their phone into nature, or if they are just a clutz, is a Lifeproof case. They are bulky compared to some cases, but the protection is above any other. People can also use their iPhone underwater with a Lifeproof case, so if that’s something someone is interested in it is worth the $30 to $40.
Sophomore Will Leba said his favorite kind of case is a Lifeproof case. “I am usually out and about so having a large amount of protection is needed. I also am able to take pictures and videos in any weather condition, that’s one if my favorite features,” Leba said.
Lifeproof is a best seller, it almost makes an iPhone in-destructive, which is a plus. Although it is decently bulky and larger than most cases, it really is not one a person would be drawn to for looks.
Speck is one of the most popular and top reviewed cases. They are not too bulky, but still give enough protection. They also are a very good price for the quality, usually between $20 to $30.
Junior Pad Dabruzzi talked about his choice in iPhone cases. “I have a Speck case. It’s green and clear, I mainly wear it for protection but I also like the appearance of it. It’s not full protection to my phone, but it’s just enough,” said Dabruzzi.

One last popular brand of cases is OtterBox. The most popular case sold by them are the Commuter Series Case. This case gives a lot of protection yet is still smaller and sleek. It comes in a wide variety of colors and to many people is more attractive than most high protection cases.
Allan Brandt, a parent of a student attending Stillwater, Emma Brandt, owns a Commuter Series Case. Allan said, “It protects my phone well. I dropped it accidentally on the driveway and it had no scratches on my phone at all. Without it my phone would have most definitely been damaged.”
If someone is looking for a case that is visually attractive, protective or both, there are many options out there with Speck, Lifeproof and Otterbox just being the top reviewed.
