Most of us at Gizmodo like our phones naked, but if you decide you need a case, we'll try not to judge. After all, a cracked iPhone screen is a huge pain in the ass. Not only are you going to have to spend about $100 to fix it, but you'll have to find a repair shop or deal with insurance hassles.
Folks with fumbly fingers tend to like Otterbox cases. The Otterbox Commuter in particular strikes a nice balance between protection and turning your phone into a brick. Plus, it comes in (bright!) colors, unlike the iPhone. Right now, Newegg's running a sale on iPhone 5 Otterbox Commuter cases and Amazon's doing a little price matching. This is a good deal because since you're buying the cases from Newegg or Amazon, they're not going to be fakes. Also, at under $20, you're paying half the price you'd shell out at your local Best Buy.
Note: When buying from Amazon, I'd really try to pick Amazon under "More Buying Choices" on the right side. Fake Otterbox cases do exist.
