I received my case and am definitely liking it so far, despite a couple of minor imperfections. I'll post a review this weekend, when I have the time to sit down and write one up. All in all, I give the case 8.5/10.

The rubber is hard, not the grippy kind. It doesn't trap dirt at all. The case is far superior to the CruzerLite TPU case that I've been using previously.

@Goobacks:

I agree, the design of the roll-on screen protector is absolutely genius. However, $25 is a bit too hefty.

did you get the coconut jelly clear version?? when u say the rubber is hard, is that the back too? will this prevent those unsightly bubbles?

thanks

I am looking at this case and wonder how everyone that got them likes it? Is it a slippery case? Holding up well?

In the event you come back to this thread, my case is holding up like a champ. They are available on Amazon for around $15 nowadays, and it's definitely worth the money. I got the orange one for my wife, who always keeps her phone in her purse, and the edges accummulated black scuff marks all around the sides of the case. I have the black tea one, and it still looks the same as it did the day I bought it. Then again, I don't have a purse!

Not a bad case not real grippy got the coconut jelly ( clear ) I don't recommend the color it looks like it has 3 cracks ( really small ones ) rite above the 3 slots for camera speaker and flash but not bad for paying 17 bucks with shipping from cell guru

Hi, I read a comment on Amazon about the white one where the reviewer says that the nubs didn't stop the case from scratching when the phone vibrated. Do you or your wife see this problem?

Thanks
trying to decide between this case and the incipio silicrylic
