    Unfortunately, @Dannydet is correct. Any case has a margin of risk, but it's better than no case at all. All three will provide some drop protection, assuming the drop is relatively low and the phone lands in such a way that the case can absorb the shock. Drop a phone from 6' or higher and you're out of luck most of the time.

    That said, I'd probably go for the olixiar only because i believe that the "built in screen guard" on the i-blason would be nothing but trouble. The ESR is just a basic thin case.

    Will you suggest any other case or wallet case?

    DO you have a habit of dropping phones? There are some cases that will protect a phone a little better than others, but they are bulky, ugly and make it very inconvenient to use and pocket your phone. You cold also get a case with a place to connect a lanyard so you can wear it around your neck or hook to a belt.

    The T-Mobile G1 I dropped down a concrete staircase had a hard plastic case i bought from a dollar store. It shattered spectacularly.

    Don't use plastic.

    i always go with zagg shields, mainly because Best Buy will put it on for me.....i suck at putting them on. plus there is a zagg booth in the mall near me that will install and replace the screen protector once for $7.

    i hear that whitestone is really good and they have an apparatus that helps you install it with zero bubbles.

    as far as cases go i have a spigen tough armor case on my note 10+

    otterbox also makes some really rugged cases as well.
