Yes that's exactly right. I bought my otter case at best buy online because they don't have it in stores. I personally have the soft case and love it because its not as bulky as the body glove one that I used to own. Its all up to you the hard cases really protect it more of course. And when I bought my otter case it came with a screen protector. But if you really want to protect your screen buy invishield they are the best out there its quite pricy but worth it

I think silicone cases are better , they can bear scratches .

Otterbox defender.
U will thank ur self one day.
Ebay has em a bit cheaper.
My job gets me a 22% discount so I got it around 35$ from) vzw store.
(I have a droidx2)
I dropped my phone out my pocket on a rainy day IMMEDIATELY AFTER buying the otterbox. But BEFORE I could put it on.
Luckily it stored short of the puddle of death.
But the body glove case I had on at the time(which was peeling back after ONE MONTH) popped off and my x2's casing got scratched and nicked all on the corners and edges. needless to say as soon as I got home I burned the body glove out of frustration and slipped on the otterbox. 10 drops later and you would never know I dropped it. The otterbox even still looks brand new.

If u don't go with otterbox then go with a Trident Kraken case.
Protect ur investment. The more scratches/drops ur phone goes thru the LESS its worth in resale. Invest in a durable casing. U wont regret it. And u EASILY get uses to the size difference quickly

I have a silicon case, it makes the phone a bit heavier but it gives satisfactory protection.

Got myself a cheap otterbox defender. Well its cheap now anyways. Its awesome though, kind of thick but for me it's about the right size. My hands aren't the smallest or biggest but it fits comfortably in it. Plus it has the belt clip, hard case, and silicon sleeve. Feels pretty safe accidentally dropping it now.

don't forget, the belt clip doubles as a kick stand

and ive dropped mine a few times since putting otterbox defender on it, and EVERY TIME I go "aahh awe...meh who cares, DEFENDER!" LOL...

I do this all the time. Rotate the belt clip part around so it's pointed at 1-2 o'clock, and then turn the phone around in the case. It'll hold the Hero in landscape mode on a desk just fine.

The Otterbox Defender looked too big for me. The Impact ended up being rather bulky too, but it works reasonably well. The only problem with the Impact is that without a hard shell, it's too sticky to store your phone in a front pants pocket. The Commuter is the best option, IMHO. It's basically like a junior cousin to the Defender, with a soft rubber casing and a removable hard shell, while still maintaining a reasonably thin profile. I also like how the ports are covered. $3.99 on Amazon while supplies last.
