The first line of defense for your iPhone 4 is a solid case, one that will protect your device in the case of a minor drop, scraping against keys in your purse, or one of the million other small annoyances your phone will inevitably endure. The hardshell cases by Agent 18 do this job, and they do it quite well. If you want to keep your phone safe from the occasional drop or scratch, the Shield Limited will be what you need.
The Agent 18 EcoShield+ may be just the perfect case for the lint-o-phobe among us. It has two main features, most obvious of which is its built-in stand. This stand allows you to prop your iPhone 4 on any flat surface for easy hands-free viewing. The second feature is that it covers nearly every opening on the iPhone 4, protecting you from tiny dirt particles. But is this case worth its steep price tag?
