none.

but if i had to decide on one, i'd go with silicone. all the hard cases i've hard always cracked which scratched my device even more.

if you had to choose between the two, go with the hard case. silicon cases are harder to slip into your pocket and take out.

also, go with the invisible shield or bestskinsever

doesn't add bulk

the silicone doesnt feel as good but if you get a really good form fitting one that'd be alright. i choose that over the hard case cus the hard case cracks so easily when i drop it and it tends to scratch my phone, even though the case looks and feel better.

I've used both.. and I ran into this new type of case.. made from some kind of "resin" which is a hard but rubbery case that works like a silicon but hard as a plastic but won't hurt/break/scratch your phone. :D

Super cheap on the bay. (:

i used both but theres gel cases now i find their alot better :) it doesnt slide around, and you can get it in and out of your pocket easier, also it doesnt break its like silicon case but it doesnt stretch out :) and their see through so you can still see the back :D

I'm using a hard case right now, but I just ordered the Otterbox silicon case the other day. (:

I've recently purchased a hard case and it looks great and all but it scratches the hell out of the back of my iphone, thats £15.00 down the drain.

I've been looking for silicon cases and found a gem of a site with allows you to customise the "skins". Thought I'd share it with you guys:

neither...only cause i think getting a case would ruin the beauty of phone. why cover it up when the purpose of getting a nice phone is partly for looks.

but since it's an iphone it's better to get a case ...so i choose the hard one.

I've used both and I prefer silicon cases. When I dropped my phone using a hard case, it broke the case and scratched my phone.

But with the silicon case, it kind of cushioned the fall and I didn't get a single scratch on my phone.

i believe getting a silicon because it wouldn't really harm anything to the phone but i heard using hard covers can get a little scratch and all this stuff on the back of your phone or something. idk, someone told me .. so silicon if i were you. act i have one too, for my nokia e71x <3 ^^.

Exactly, despite covering the phone, cases obviously provide lots of protection. I don't want my 200+ investment to go down the drain.

I say silicone cause they don't crack and scratch like the hard case.
