Although I've dropped a phone a total of about three times in my life, and although manufacturers are continually touting more and more durable glass, polycarbonate plastic, and even metal that's 3x stronger than stainless steel, there lingers in the back of my mind the question of what may happen if and when that fateful day comes – the day when I finally drop my phone onto an unforgiving concrete, asphalt, or otherwise hard surface.

Look, I'll admit it up front: 9 times out of 10, when I buy accessories, I buy cheap and generic. A $5 phone pouch is just as good as a $30 one, right? I always thought I was getting the same product without paying for a fancy name stamped on it, a nicer package, and some more marketing. But between my cheap, universal car mount (which, while adjustable, never quite seems to hold any device quite as snugly as I'd like) or my universal arm band (which has required some cutting and doctoring with every new phone I get), one would think I'd know by now that you get what you pay for when it comes to accessories.

I'm not much of a case person. I was never very clumsy with my gadgets and didn't think the added bulk was a worthy trade-off for the added protection, especially in the day and age of ultra-durable plastics and Gorilla Glass screens. But on both fronts, that's changing; it's a lot harder to guarantee the safety of my gadgets when I've got kids (we're both likely to drop things) and there are some very sleek cases on the market.

Cruzerlite, the company behind the kickass Androidified gel case, has come a long way over the last several months. Instead of just offering a couple of different cases for one or two devices sold exclusively through Amazon, they now offer several cases for over a dozen different devices. To go along with their newly expanded case lineup, they've also launched an all-new website. In fact, their new site is one of the best that we've ever seen for a small company.

I've been on some sort of Galaxy Nexus case-review-a-thon for the past several weeks, but there are so many options out there, it's hard to pick just one. And of course, if you're on a budget (and who isn't?) you probably don't want to buy ump-teen different cases to snag the perfect one. That's what we're here for, after all - to help you make the best purchase decision possible.

If you read any of my past case reviews, then you probably know that I was a big fan of the Seidio cases, and today we're going to take a look at some comparable cases from a company called Incipio: the Feather, NGP, and Silicrylic.

Who likes to show off their Android pride? You guys do! And what better way to do that than with an Androidified case from Cruzer Lite for the Galaxy Nexus or Droid RAZR MAXX? None that I can think of. Actually, the only thing that would make this case cooler is if it were free - which we're ready to make happen (for 12 people at least).

This contest is now over.

While Motorola tablets may not exactly be flying off the shelves, that hasn't stopped Motorola from trying everything they can to sell them. Occasionally they're even a pretty good deal! For example, right now you can get the 8.2" Xyboard with a free portfolio case (normally $39) and HD dock (normally $49) for $399. If 10.1" tablets are more your style, you can get the same deal on the larger model for $499.

It's not much of a secret that I don't actually like cases for my devices. I appreciate the added protection, but I've found that most cases either hinder the device's overall use, deduct from the natural sleekness, or are just flat-out ugly.

Then I got my hands on the Surface, Active, and Convert cases from Seidio. Wow.

Never before have I actually wanted to use a case on my phone, but these are some of the best looking cases I've ever seen.
