My husband and I are looking into changing wireless providers, because T-Mobile’s coverage in our city has been pretty terrible for some reason. Even though we have the exact same phone, he consistently has worse service than I do, and even after replacing his SIM card — as T-Mobile suggested — he’s still having issues.

So, if we change providers, we’ll probably also get new phones. There are a lot of cool phones out there that would be way better than what we currently use. My husband can even get a Nokia Lumia for free! But I’m not really wanting an Android device. I’d really like to get an iPhone 4 or 5. And it’s not for the reasons you’d expect. It’s not because I think it’s a way-superior phone to what’s available in the Android arena. It’s not because it has better apps, or is quicker, or takes better pictures.

It’s because of the cases.

I don’t know why big designers only ever make cases for the iPhone, but man, do I want every single one of these Kate Spade numbers:

Loving this Marc by Marc Jacobs one as well:

I’m totally nuts, I know. But why can’t I get these gorgeous cases for the Samsung Galaxy? Or the Nokia Lumia?

Looks like a job for Etsy:

*Note: While it appears that some of these cases are designed for the iPhone, they are also available for Samsung Galaxy phones — the sellers just haven’t included photos of the prints on a Galaxy phone, for some reason.*

While they don’t have the same “designer” appeal as my favorite iPhone cases, these Galaxy cases are still gorgeous. If I end up getting a Samsung Galaxy, I’ll definitely get one of these babies. Actually, I would get one of these lovelies even if I do end up getting the iPhone. They’re that adorable.

Either way, you could always bypass the long search for a cute Galaxy case and use your own photo:

Finding a unique case for the Lumia proved a bit more challenging than finding one for the Galaxy, though, since the only hard cases were variations of this:

It’s just not my taste.

Lovelies, do you use phone cases? Which one is your favorite?
