Right now, I'm leaning towards the latter 2, particularly the ******* (since everyone says it's the perfect fusion of the Rebel and Neo cases). I've also heard extremely good things about the Candy Shell, but I'm mainly concerned about its shock absorbency. Maybe I'm just stereotypical against hard cases in general, but it doesn't seem pliable enough to contain a drop. I know there's a silicon coating inside, but it's still all hard on the outside. Would it ever be prone to cracks?
