On the other hand the phone feels like it could take a bigger hit. Also, the buttons are a lot easier to press than with a case or even without a case. The power button was a bit of a frustration for me but not so with this case. The cover also has covers for the ports.
To answer another question in another thread, you can attach a lanyard to this case, two little holes on the same side as the volume bar.
I will update when I use it some more to get my impressions for every day use. I took pictures.
It also comes with a screen protector, but I have not used it since I already had a different one on the phone.
Here's a link http://www.tridenteer.com/categories...7%7DHTC-VILLE/ It comes in black, blue, green, pink and red.
