Which iphone case?

I've been on the look out for a new iphone case recently and found lots of variety - some good, some bad and some just plain weird, so I thought I'd share...

For the designer...

'Curated by Arkitip' have the best of the graphic cases and the most fun ones. Above left features work from New York-based studio HunterGatherer and above right features original artwork from Dutch artist Parra. Both can be bought here.

"Curated by Arkitip is a project designed for Incase, aimed at delivering artistically embellished Apple© products to users who have an appreciation for the creative arts and technology".

For the fashionista...

A bit of luxury and drama - these textured cases from Ultra-case would look at home in any designer handbag. Not sure I can get on board with the snake skin though.

For the thrill-seeker...

Durable rubber cases, molded to give extra protection and better grip. Above left is extreme sports manufacturer Oakley's offering and above right is the Vroom case from Case-mate. These cases are crying out to be hurtled down a mountain or screeched around a race track - bit too manly for me, although the Vroom one is also available in red and yellow!

For the brave...

Cases to get you noticed -scarily I think these two cases are actually my favourite. They're from Incase who have the best range of colours including metallics and fluorescents - there really is one to match every 80's outfit you own!

And finally, for those who like dressing-up...

Not sure why you would want to make your beautifully designed iphone look like something else, but if you do there are some options out there.

For example, above left is the Homade ChocoCase to disguise your iphone as a bar of chocolate (why??) available here and above right is the elusive Gameboy iphone cover, which has apparently been spotted in Japan, but no-one knows (or can find out) where to buy one. If you really want one of these though, you could do what GeekMorgan did and print out your own lifesize Gameboy front and stick it inside a clear case!
