I just noticed that HC cases are no longer available through the Ballistic site only the SG cases.
If you need one, check Amazon or Ebay.

If you try to get an HC off ebay, ask if the screen protector has a matte finish underneath or if its slick. The first ones had the slick finish which gave you that sticky bubble look against a stock or non-matte screen protector. The revision had a glossy outer finish and matte inner finish so it wouldn't stick, so your device can be naked inside.

I broke my first one by constantly taking it off by grabbing the bottom and pulling up without twisting it laterally to get the clips to disengage, so it ended up snapping the frame of the front piece. When i got another one it had a matte inner surface for the screen protector.

My outer screen protector never bubbled but I took it off anyway. It interfered with touch slightly and when I took the front off to clean it, I pressed a little too hard on the screen protector and it started to come undone from the frame. It would stick back with the type of glue used but I decided I didn't need much water resistance since I never kept the phone in the silicone shell and still had the inner screen protector anyway.

To prevent my case screen from bubbling against the screen I used the thin no-glare screen protector from sprint on my phone. Then upgraded my case to the otterbox defender and left the screen cover on. I have had no issues with the touch not sensing unless I talk for a long time on a hot day. But that happens without the case too. Only thing I hate about this case is the crappy cheap plastic stand. Was worthless to even put on the case in my opinion.

My Commuter case tore as I was pulling it from my pocket and I lost the flap that covers the bottom ports on the phone. I emailed Otterbox explaining the situation and they offered to send me a brand new one, which is now on it's way.
How can you argue with such great customer service?

Wow! Seidio would never offer to do that! I can't get them to do anything without FIRST sending back my defective case or holster, then wait almost two weeks to get the replacement. It seems like Seidio could learn a thing or two from Otterbox' customer service.

Perhaps I'll go with Otterbox from now on.

I think Ballistic cases are more durable in general especially compared to the Otterbox Commuter. Their customer service is also good.

The Trident Electra Series Case with extended 2800ma battery is great. The case is similar to otterbox defender series, but better constructed. I have both and the Trident is far superior.
