Bought on eBay for $6.00 from someone in Brooklyn. Very simplistic. Adds a nice grip feel. Doesn't provide any impact protection from drops over two feet. I'm pretty sure about that statement. When otter box releases a commuter or defender I'll be switching. Overall for general wear and tear protection, the best $6 spent for this phone.

Re: Mini review: Nillkin case
Suffered a nice fall today. Was walking looking at an email. Shoulder checked a massive column in a mall. Silver Bezel on bottom took a nice ding. Rest of phone is fine, no cracks to front or back. Ordered a diztronic case. If it wasn't for the exposed top and bottom of the case it would have been fine. It did however protect the two most important parts of the phone. So it gets an A- in its short time of use. Lesson learned, pay attention when walking.

I'm still waiting for Nillkin to release a TPU case! Surely these hard cases do nothing to dampen the impact?

Yes, especially when it hits marble. Its not bad but disheartening considering its less than 48 hours old. Fortunately, rooted 4.2.2 with the new boot loader and radio put a huge smile on my face and the diztronic will cover it up anyway. I'm fortunate that nothing broke, and its still just a phone.

Do you find the case slick/slippery to the touch/hold? I have one, but felt the plastic was too slick even with the pebbled surface and decided to switch to a ballistic. I do like it and if the phone wasn't covered in glass, I might have stuck with it.
