Default Hey Ventanatips Re: Rock Case for Radar

It says thats a gel case, though it looks like hardplastic. Which is it? I hope its the hard plastic as the gel gets hung up in your pocket when taking it in and out.

I just bought the Incipio Silicrylic, which is basically a silicone insert and a polycarobonate back, and it feels so so sturdy now. Definitely worth having the peace of mind even though it makes it a tad bit bulkier.

Incipio also offers the feather style hard case. It is thin and fits the curves of the phone well. I had one for my old iPhone and it was amazing! It's $25 but it's well worth the money. The only negative is that it only really protects the backside, and partially the sides.

I got one of those TPU S-Line cases for mine off of Ebay.

I find they fit and feel a bit better than the regular TPU cases and they're only a couple of bucks if you don't mind the longer ship times when ordering from sellers in China.

First one is silicon case that picks up lint and dirt like crazy which is the reason why I got the second one. The second one I like the lease because it covers all the buttons but there are no grooves or moldings for the buttons outside the case so you can't tell where the buttons are by just touching the case + buttons are hard to press. I got the last two at the same time and I am liking them the best. Buttons are easy to press and doesn't cover up the background microphones on the back..
I recommend the clear case. I bought it and it took a while to come from China, but well worth it.

The only problem that I have found is that the light from the flash shines through the case and gives pictures a bright glow.

I really recommend the rubberize snap on hard case, brought a white one from this seller on ebay, it cover that plastic part in the front of the phone ans the whole side without blocking any of the buttons. Cant post link: but the seller name is moderntechs.

I have been really happy with a white/clear case purchased on Amazon. I have both a black and white case, and think the white looks a ton better.

http://www.amazon.com/Amzer-Silicone...5283218&sr=1-5

I really like the consistency - I think its about perfect. Not too ridgid, but not too flexible. IMO, the Radar is a little bit slippery, and I love the feel of this case.

The case covers the camera button, volume rocker, and power button, but fits them perfect. It does not cover the camera or the flash, and there are small holes cut out for the mic and back speaker. Any questions re the case, let me know.

I have that but don't use it. It isn't tight enough for my liking. It sticks to all kinds of dirt.. AND it makes the Radar more slippery when I take it out of the case!!!!!!!!!!



I just ordered another one, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o00_s00_i00 , hopefully it's good. It looks good.

wanted to share these pictures I took of the two cases I got off of eBay *TPU BLUE CASE* and *Red Rubberize Backcase* for the HTC Radar.







I really prefer the Hard Rubberize cases they feel more sturdy and stylish

Me too, this case is fantastic and also cheap. I bought a S-Line cover also for a Lumia 710 and fit perfectly. Around 3-4 $ on eBay.
