Ballistic LS (LifeStyle Smooth) model
I purchased the less bulky and softer Ballistic Case model, the LS-1042. $30 retail or direct from GoBallsiticCase, $18 at Amazon.
First of all the Sony phone is obviously better engineered than the cheap plastic shatterable Samsung and I think it will withstand minor drops so I did not need the Ballistic Hard Shell.
It is a semi-soft black case but with re-enforced corners which have compressible bouncers pre-packaged with black, red, white and green. I chose to put on the green. And it really looks nice
As expected for Ballistic, it does have cutouts in all the right spots, including for that unexpected tiny microphone on the top.
They claim you can drop it from 7 feet without damage. Unsurprisingly, I have not actually tested that claim.
But overall I am quite pleased with it.
