All those choices and I do not use a case never had, and I been through 4 android smartphones.

My problem has always been to find a horizontal pouch to clip to my belt, I refuse to stuff a $700 into a pocket.

I've always had a love for seidio cases... Used em on my last 2 phones and never had a problem. Did end up getting the Platinum case from Best Buy which is just a rebranded Surface case and like the previous poster I feel like these aren't as good as before, just a lil loose... Even with that still love the case, altho I would love it even more it they had a white case to match my white SR...lol
Quick question for anyone out there that has a seidio surface case/holster. Have you tried out any other cases, do any fit in the seidio holster? Thinking bout gettin an Rearth case (slim or regular) but want it to be able to fit in the holster as well and it's almost impossible to get sizes for these things so never know if they'll work and can't get my hands on any since you have to order online usually...lol
Prolly gonna pickup a smoke diztronic tpu case and see if that works with the holster since it's only $10... Hopefully someone knows of another case that fits...

Default Seido Active

I purchased the Seido Active case, I like it so far. The case fits real nice, and everything lines up really well. My only complaint about the case so far, is it attracts lint in your pocket. But other then having to wipe it off so often, it's good protection for the case. Never used cases or screen protectors with my iphone but since i got the skyrocket i decided to get both, xoskin + Seido active case, i couldn't be happier with the pair protecting my phone!

Default Diztronic Case

I recently bought a Skyrocket. Before that I had a blackberry with no case - those things took a lot of abuse! But for this beautiful more fragile device, I finally succumbed to trying a case.

I really didnt think I would like the case - I HATE the way most cases I see look. So intrusive and ugly.

But after reading about it here I decided to throw the Diztronic case into my latest Amazon order and figure for $10 I have nothing to lose. I figured Id try it and then stick it in a drawer somewhere.

However I have to say I really like the case. I got the black glossy and I think it looks very natural around the phone. At first glance people dont even really realize theres a case there. Its very slim and doesnt feel like it adds bulk in my pocket. It also makes the phone A LOT more gripp-able. I was feeling like the natural phone was too slipper in my hands, and this case gives a much more confident grip.

I havent dropped it so cant comment on the protection side of it, but overall Im quite happy with its look and feel and intend to keep it on at all times...

If you care about protection and prices those would work great.

White: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280836673641

And I guess there are red color too.

While the idea is great, kinda like the seidio cases but cheaper, that case looks reeeaaally thick... Did you order 1 of those?

I think the Samsung Skyrocket Hybrid Case is a great case for only $14.99 comes in 3 colors: http://www.techiewarehouse.com/Searc...et+hybrid+case

The quality of the case is also equivalent to the Seidio cases for half the cost.

Is that what you have Jack? If so... how is the fit and does it still fit in your pocket?

Also, does the Seidio active cases come with a screen protector?
