Hi guys!

Got my white grip cover today and it's much better than I expected it to be.

Looks: It looks and feels phenomenal, hardly adds any bulk to the phone and provides protection too. The feel is similar to how my new One X felt. The back has a very nice soft feel to it, different from both back shells and flip covers.

Fit: Fits perfectly. Zero creaks or noises. Mind you, it doesn't click when you put it on. It's held there by the bumper around it. But the fit is very reassuring.

Protection: The back is much harder than the standard back plate, thus providing better protection. The bumper around it also feels decently protective. Buttons are still nice and clicky. Cutouts are prefect.

Worth every penny. Will be buying the blue one soon too! Go for it.

I have the black one and I would have to agree about how great it is. How is the white one? Do you feel like it could discolor pretty fast? Is the white bright or more like an eggshell white ?

I'd say it's on the brighter side of white. And, I guess the whole material of the case is of the same colour so I don't really think it could discolour. Why do you think it would lose its colour?

By discolor I meant that do you think that it will stain easily.

Oh, that! White I think will be pretty easy to dirty bit a wipe with a wet cloth will be good enough. I've used a white phone since the past two years and most of the stains go away by just using a damp cloth. Otherwise, a lens cleaning solution would always do the trick.

I have the red one and am really impressed with it. What other colors do they have?

Hi although the official grip cover looks cool on the device and doesnt add extra thickness to the device.. I am not very confident about how well it would protect the device..hence I have been thinking about getting a Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case for the phone. Any of you who have been using the Cruzerlite Bugdroid Circuit Case kindly provide some feedback..how thick does it make the phone ? Does it really protect the phone well ?
