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
