I've ordered those cases for every phone I've had (Evo 3D, Epic 4G Touch, etc) and they're great and don't add thickness at all. The semi-clear white one looks great on my Epic 4G Touch and the black one on my black Epic 4G Touch looked great as well. The glossy top portion is so you can lie the phone face down and not have it slide around at all. You can almost put the phone at 90 degrees on a surface and it won't slip.

Yeah that's what I stated earlier, definitely adds needed grip.

Is the Diztronic made of gel-like tpu or the hard tpu? And I wonder how it compares with the Boxwave case (like the Fosman shown earlier).

It's semi-hard. It's like a flexible silicone-plastic mix. You can't break it by dropping it because it's not solid completely, but it's not like rubbery silicone cases at all. There's no dust collection (it's smooth).

I went ahead and ordered the matte black diztronic from ebay. Earlier in the thread I gave my opinion on the elago. Then I got a two piece hard shell and just didn't like it....but it was $4 :)
I actually REALLY like having this thing naked. If the Diz doesn't work out I'm going to just take my chances...
I've had it for a month naked with no problems. All I'm concerned about is the accidental drop. Otherwise I take good care of my phones. In my pocket by itself.

Do you think the Diztronic would work with the Spigen Glas.t screen protector? I have that on order and it's thicker than a normal sp. I'm not sure how tight the Diztronic is or if it's flexible enough to handle the extra thickness.

Not sure but it covers the lip that's around the screen. Works fine with my screen protector that's on.

I wonder if anyone has tried using a Rearth Ringke Slim case with the Samsung Flip Cover case underneath. The Ringke has open sides, so the cover could still work. You might not be able to flip it around the back, though. Also, you could make a cutout on the flip cover for the volume buttons (which is something I think they should have done already). Just an idea...
