i ordered this last night and am excited. for under $10 shipped, it could be a steal.

quick question tho for elir41 or anyone else who has it already-- will it work with a tempered glass (MIME feather glass) screen protector?

my hope was to run the glass protector always and swap between this and the seidio surface kickstand case as appropriate.

anyway, ill post when i receive mine, but earlier feedback from those who already have the case is appreciated

I don't think you'll be able to use the tempered glass screen protector. The phone fits really snug in the first portion of the case and the built in screen protector lays right against the screen.

I don't have a screen protector so I can't give you a guaranteed answer, but from what i see, I don't think you'll be able to. Sorry man.

appreciate it man. after reading your response i did a little additional research and found out about the seidio convert which goes on top of the surface and supposedly offers otterbox-like protection. if this case doesn't work, ill just get that. probably a more elegant (but also more expensive) solution, anyway. regardless ill post in here when i get the poetic case and let peeps know.

You can probably just pop out the plastic screen protector. I did that with the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro. BTW this case looks a lot like the Unicorn Beetle Pro. I wonder if maybe it's just a rebranded version of it...hmm...

On the Defender, the built in screen protector was a little loose and had some play between it and the screen. On this one, there is no play. The design is really nice. I only used the Defender when I rode my bike and then immediately took it off, with this one, I think I'll use it daily.

Here's some pics of the case. Please excuse all the lint and dog hair. Not too bad for a $10 (when I purchased) case.

So it looks like they have a clear strip at the top of the case to allow for IR to work. Have you tried it? Does it still work through the case?

The IR blaster doesn't work, unfortunately. The top strip is clear, but it looks like it's purely cosmetic. I think if they followed the strip through the power button cover, it would've worked. Not sure why they didn't.

I am in love with this case.

I went from otter commuter. To love mei aluminum. This is the perfect medium.

It's light and also durable .

Buttons are super responsive and the built in screen protector is actually very nicely done.

Not bad for $16 shipped

Edit : the bottom cover port will get loose and not close after a few days. That's too bad
