Otterbox Commuter & XO Skins Screen protector Review w/ PICS!
Hey xda members, 2 days ago i got my Otterbox Commuter case, and today i recieved my XO Skins screen protector.
This is my first time writing a review, so please bare with me lol
So I've been using the otterbox case for a few days now and i must say I LOVE IT!
the fit is very nice, looks great, and feels awesome. I have read that some people find it to be too slippery, but for me its great. I likke how it has the flaps for the charger port and headphones jack, helps keep out dust and such. It sits very nicely in the hand, i found the phone without any case to be a little slim and i felt like it was going to slip out everytime I held it. The one concern I have with this case is the power button, and those that have this case please let me know if it's the same with yours, i can't feel the button actually push in, it feels more like I just touch it and the screen comes on or off. Not sure if I like it or not but i am getting used to it now. The volume buttons on the other hand feel fine. At first i was worried that the case would make the phone look and feel bulky, as i had one for my X2, but i was surprised this doesn't add too much bulk. The phone, to me at least, feels perfect in my hand. Also this case covers up the the prongs below the power button, i don't mind or care about it but some of you might so keep that in mind. Also i do have the extanded battery 2100mAh too and did try it with this case and it's not a nice fit. There are some gaps on the sides and the buttons seem like they are pressed in at times so i would not recommend this case with the extended battery.
And just a few hours ago I recieved my XO Skins screen protector in the mail and put it on right away. My previous screen protector I had just before i put this one on was the verizon one, and it sucked. Cut outs were bad and too large for the toop speaker and there was about a mm of space on the edges of the screen, which i didn't like. The XO on the other hand is fantastic. The screen protector is almost invisible unless you look at the cutout for the front cam and light sensor. It goes right to the very edge of the screen which i like. The quality is also fantastic. The material feels somewhat like that of the ZAGG but no orange peel what so ever, which i also like. I did however order the ZAGG as well for the full body just to be safe lol.
Overall I recommend this case with this screen protector to anyone, both are a great combination. The case i got on ebay for 29.50 and free shipping and the screen protector i got from the XO website, and somewhere on here someone posted some discount coupons which i wish i would have seen before i bought mine but no biggy it was only 13.xx i believe plus 2.99 shipping
I also have on the way and SGP Neo Hybrid case which i will post a review once i get it. Got the Reventon Yellow.
^The cutouts are really nice and precise unlike the verizon one i had
Also, you can't really tell here but the XO skins doesn't affect the quality of the screen what so ever. took that pic on the Nexus actually hood of my car
very nice pics even though some people complain.
If someone would like to know something more or see more pics let me know.
