Default Review: Ringke Thunderbolt case

I was contacted to give my thought on this case..and well here they are.

The case is very well made. Its like a rubber build and it feels really good. Its got good grip on it. So good that sometimes i cant take it out of my pants pocket. It doesnt really get to hot even when the phone is hot. It has power and volume buttons build into the case so it makes it easier to lock and unlock the phone,as well as turn up the volume. I really like it. And the price is only 17 bucks. I say its worth it. It fits like a glove and doesnt cover any of the microphones either.

If u have any questions about it, feel free to post them here.

DONATE TO ME
I got a case similar to this that has that same strip underneath the earpiece speaker. I've found it hard to drag down the notification bar when cases have one of these.

I disagree with the notification bar dragging issue. I have the ringke case and think it's fantastic. The feel is a little different than I was expecting, but overall I'm very satisfied. It was only $10 with a coupon I found online.

I have posted this previously:

The strip under the earspeaker covers the light sensor, therefore, while on calls, the screen will not turn off automatically.

I contacted Ringke about this a couple of months ago. They responded right away, and informed me they would look into it. I have never heard back from them since.

I went ahead and cut the piece off. It is structurally useless.

One benefit of keeping the strip might be that the lights on the soft-keys at the bottom of the bolt always stay lit when the screen is on.

Other than that, it is a nice case and fits the bolt well. My only other gripe is that the sides are not as sturdy as on the same case for the itouch.

I've had my ringke case now since the day I
received my thunderbolt. I've been very
pleased w/ the quality and fitment of it.

I haven't experienced any issues w/ the
strip causing the screen to not turning off.


I contacted support and asked if they would
be producing a similar case to fit the extended
battery but they said no :/ i think if they did
then I would go ahead and jump for the extended
battery.

And just to let you know, your ad hominem argument is an improper use of the Latin phrase. If you may have noticed, I stated that I have no issues with the screen not turning off and then proceeded to bash you and your Apple fanboy. I wasn't trying to undermine your statement by directly attacking you. My statement simply concluded that I think you're wrong based on my experience with the case.

Regardless, I laugh at you for thinking I work for Ringke or received a free case. Please note, I would never accept a job as a blue-collar worker.
To others reading this, please do not click on the link. This member has decided to spam people.



You are quite IMMATURE.

As I previously stated, I am not an apple fanchild. I use an ipod touch as the organization I work for uses apple based products to run their medical software.

Also, if you check the other forums (as I previously informed you), you will see that all of my self-purchased electronics are android based (Xoom, DINC2, OGDROID, Thunderbolt).

Finally, you most certainly did employ ad-hominem. It is a fallacy of relevance. It is any kind of argument that criticizes an idea by pointing something out about the people who hold the idea rather than directly addressing the merits of the idea. As you admitted, you attacked me personally in order to discredit my point about the case, rather than prove your point.

Go back to school, and learn to be respectful and kind to others. Shame on you.
