Case-Mate Tough Case
If anybody is wondering about cases, I bought the case mate tough case from amazon last week, it arrived today. Paid about 25 euro inc. postage to ROI.
Case looks good on the phone, its a silicon inner case with a hard polcarbonate shell. Access to all buttons and connections are good. It seems sturdy enough, but I have yet to drop it (I'll update when I drop the phone, it wont take long
) If it bothers anybody, the case makes a hollow noise when you tap the back of it, it annoys me a little, but I cant imagine I'll be tapping the back of the phone that much anyway
A silicon lip around the screen also helps protect the screen if left/dropped on its face, as well as stopping it slipping while left on a hard smooth sloped surface.
The case is about 2 or 3mm thick I would estimate. Most people dont like thick cases, but on the contrary, I kinda like the added bulk, I have big hands.
The back of the case is textured with ridges, but the hard plastic still feels somewhat slippery or something. Its not in any way difficult to hold, but perhaps not as grippy as a rubberised finish would be. An advantage of the hard shell is that it slips effortlessly in and out of your pocket. The small silicon faces exposed don't gather much lint either, and they lose it really easily anyway when you run your finger along them.
A screen protector and screen wiping cloth are included, I havn't tried either of them yet though so cant comment.
Something that's important to point out about this case and other accessories for the wildfire s - I know its been said before, but the wildfire s comes in 2 different sizes. This case fits the european version of the wildfire s, to the best of my knowledge the otterbox case fits the american version. Just be careful when getting a case, I almost bought the otterbox, whick would have been way too large
Overall, first impression is that this is a good case. If you don't like bulk maybe this case isn't for you, it does add quite a bit to the phone size wise, but I have rather a habit of dropping mine so I don't mind, it can use all the protection it can get.
I'm just putting this brief review up for anybody who wants info on it, I'd be happy to answer any questions if I'm leaving out anything.
