I am sorry I am new to the photon..... Just upgraded my evo 4g and needed the sim for deployments. I bought a commuter case originally for my photon. I could not stand that the back was slippery when set on a table. I also did not like that the flaps covering the hdmi always opened when I pulled it from my pocket. My defender lasted a year in Iraq on my ipod without problem but I did not get that same build quality on the computer for my photon.

I did however get a seidio active case from amazon. I love the soft feel back and the nicer build quality. Sorry otterbox but you let me down. I still use my commuter when I need the dust cover.

All in all I am really happy with my seidio, at least until ballistic starts making one

My vote is for the incipio silicrylic case. I like it much better than otterboxs I've had in the past.

Not complaining but I got my Defender and I expected rubber inside and hard plastic outside, not the other way around. I love how my phone is, especially in the belt clip. It just screams military grade. Is that stupid? False confidence because it's bulky? Either way I'm happy and feel I got my money's worth, and that's what matters.

I want to get my wife a case. Any recommendations? Can't be bulky, she has smaller hands. Mainly want to keep the screen and case free of scratches more than anything. Colors a plus, especially if they have blue.

http://www.seidioonline.com/ They have the surface and active cases that come in blue. I have the convert which includes a surface case and its nice on its own. You can get it cheaper if you shop around of course.

I'm just looking for a case that I can use with my HD dock and car dock without needing to modify with a razor. Does such a case exist?

I don't use a case, and I am HARD on phones. I have dropped the photon on the ground (sidewalk, street) several times from waist level and have not had an issue. Once it fell flat on the screen and I was sure it was ruined. It didn't even get a scratch! I like that my phone doesn't need an inch thick otterbox.

Wow, surprised that the Aegis has only been mentioned once! Great cases, especially at less than $20. I've had them for my last couple of phones and think they are great. A little sleeker than the Otterbox cases.

We really didn't need to know that man.

I used a cheap silicone case for a while but within the first month of owning mine I decided I liked it naked. After dropping it on pavement and it merely having a couple little scratches on the sides, I decided this phone is strong enough for me to use it without a case. That Trident one looks nice though, so I might try it out.

I have the OtterBox Defender sitting next to me now. 1. I rarely used the belt clip. 2. sometimes it was hard to use the otter keys when typing 3. I got tired of taking it apart weekly to clean it! Lastly, in 13+ years I have dropped exactly ONE phone. I really baby them.

I really like that light clean feel of being naked!
