There are many popular types of cases for the HTC Inspire, some of the more popular ones are made from plastic. Plastic offers many great qualities such as being very inexpensive, flexible, and very durable. If you want an exciting, ultra-modern design, and then plastic is generally your best option. And if you've ever knocked your phone off a desk or banged it into the molding passing through a doorway, plastic is a great option. That's because plastic absorbs the energy from a shock extremely well. The plastic does crack though, which is probably the only downfall of purchasing such a case. If there is too much shock into the case, then it'll just end up cracking.
Silicone is also an extremely popular material. Manufacturers use it to make skins and other thin cases. All silicone cases are very thin and lightweight which helps the user maintain its form. So if you're basically basing your phone's look with style, silicone is the option for you. Probelm with these is that they don't do much to protect your Inspire as much a plastic case wood. And although these kinds of covers are great for protecting against scratches and minor dents, they will not do much against a drop on the floor.
Rubberized cases reach somewhat of a middle ground between silicone and plastic cases. Silicone is also a lot more comfortable than most plastic cases. The advantage that they have over silicone, like plastic, is that they provide real shock absorption. Nevertheless, rubberized cases tend to be bulkier than the plastic cases that provide better overall protection. Many rubberized cases serve as holsters that will help transport the device.
When trying to pick between the three kind of accessories, there is no real answer. Choosing the correct type of case really comes down to your lifestyle and how the device will be used. If you are tough on your cell phone or simply would like maximum protection, then plastic tends to be the best option. However, if you're not hard on your phone and prefer to maintain the natural style of the phone, silicone is a good choice.
