I returned my vz case a few days ago and bought this case from a kiosk. I love it.

This is my third different case and by far the most favorite I've bought. It's stylish feels decent in the hand and I love the how the red pops off of it. If I damage it I'll probably be sad.

As mentioned earlier, be careful when you slide it on your phone. Any sharp plastic edges will scratch the chrome finish on the bevel of the phone. Fits the phone perfectly look-wise and size-wise.

considering how they can be had for as little as ten bucks (five for the grey ones!) on amazon, i won't be all that sad. i'll be happy it was a ten dollar case that can be replaced for practically nothing instead of the outside of my expensive pocket computer.

Got mine yesterday and have to say it is a classy case. Was even happier when it fit in the VZW holster that came with their kickstand case.

Only thing I didn't like about this case was that the bottom piece would clip out very easy. Link in a car mount in a car mount I had when I tried to take it out it would make the bottom piece come off.

I was in the same situation. I've been going naked totally almost exclusively. When I first bought the phone I bought the black official Verizon case with it. Didn't like the feel of it. Also I bought the anti-glare screen protectors, I knew how they made the screens look (grainy) because I bought them for my X2 and hated them, I don't know why the hell I bought them again, I immediately took the first protector off and said screw it. After a week I bought a $5 case that has grippers on the side. It has a shiny/dull back that's in the shape of my S. That felt decent, but didn't like that either.

Now this case is slightly bulky compared to the thermoplastic ones, but I just like the sturdiness in my hand better. Also I went to Verizon and bought regular glossy screen protectors for my screen. I've been naked for about 2 months and figured it was time to fully protect my phone. After 20 minutes I was able to get the first screen protector on their nearly perfectly except for one little tiny air bubble on the very edge that doesn't bother me. Phone looks great in it, not overly bulky like an Otterbox, but much better looking. I love the red in back and the black chrome line towards the bottom...

this case plus the realook screen protectors makes for a very attractive and effective protection without a lot of bulk or taking away from the appearance of the phone. i thought this was too flashy for my tastes until i saw it in person, at which point i really liked it.

the realook screen protectors are absolutely fantastic too. they go edge to edge, covering every bit of the glass, so you can't tell it's there - no seams. it doesn't distort the screen, there's no rainbow effect, and it feels like touching the original glass, not plastic. best screen protector i've ever come across - they should be invisible.

I was able to get a very good result with just the Verizon screen protectors. Except they don't go edge to edge, they're about an 1/8" off the edge of the screen on all sides, but other than that you can pretty much get them on without any bubbles if you take your time and have a piece of tap handy to grab any specs of dust. Feels good to the touch and if you get on on correct the only way you can tell its there is with the seams on the sides.
