Which Style of iPhone Cover Best Fits Your Lifestyle?

Do you prefer a black leather Mujjo or a sturdy Otterbox?

Upcoming product review - iPhone 5s case by Mujjo. Comparing to the Otter Box I already have.

When it comes to cases for one’s phones the differences available range widely in both function and style. As one who has developed the, some would say, obnoxious habit of using the cell phone to film the Siberian Husky running around the neighborhood, I prefer phone cases that offer protection.

Thus, I’m not all that impressed with the Mujjo iPhone 5s case that I received last week to review. The black leather case slips on and leaves the phone’s screen exposed. It offers limited protection for liquid or direct hits onto the screen. But I understand that perhaps those living less active lifestyles might not need as much protection and prefer the Mujjo’s beneficial feature, a space on the back to hold a few credit cards or hotel room keys:

Mujjo iPhone 5s case has a slot on back for cards - the redeeming feature from an otherwise so-so product.

This could work as a vacation case but generally I’m more inclined to lean toward protection over fashion. What do you prefer with your phone case? Is there a sturdier choice than the Otterbox?

I prefer the cases offered by They have a variety of styles & patterns to choose from; they also have a feature by which you can upload your own image to make a custom case. Their products are very good quality at reasonable prices. My favorite is the "capsule."

I have to tell you: after dropping my phone in a (clean) toilet, I'm sold on Lifeproof forever.
