The iPhone 5 is now becoming widely available, and that, of course, means a bunch of people will looking for iPhone 4 and 4S cases. Why? As people upgrade, they’ll be trading in their old phones or
handing them off to others, and many new buyers will take advantage of the lower prices for the older models.
If you’re one of these new iPhone 4/4S owners, or just not interested in upgrading yet, you’re going to need a good case, and you may want to consider aluminum. I’ve become a fan over the past
couple of years. They’re more expensive than your standard plastic or silicone cases, and the material does present a couple issues that carry across almost all the models, but they’re also very
sharp looking, they’re sturdy, and they usually provide outstanding protection from drops.
Because of their price, you’ll want to make sure you get the right case the first time. To help facilitate this, we’re presenting here the best of the aluminum cases we’ve tried. There are other
options there, but you should certainly consider these in your search.
