Default [REVIEW] Rock TPU Case, also protects camera lens!

Bought my case from here: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/330710065235?...ht_3991wt_1185

They have different colors. I got the black one. Not bad for $12 with free shipping.

Took 14 days to arrive in Canada. Item actually shipped from Singapore and not Hong Kong (as it says on the ebay page)

Power button and volume rocker are easy to press. Although you wont feel any feedback from pressing these buttons. Typical of any TPU case.

As you can see, the TPU is textured for improved grip.


Rock Logo above the speaker cut out.


Protects the rear camera! No more worrying when laying your phone on any surface.


Front view with the phone. The TPU case extends all the way to the edge of the screen. You can put the phone face down on a table and it wouldnt touch the screen.


Rear view with the phone. You can still see the HTC logo and Beats Audio logo.




A closer look at the camera protection.





Cut outs are perfect for micro USB port, 3.5mm headphone jack and microphone. However, no cut out for the 5pin at the back.



Took the pic on a wrong angle. Cut out is actually perfect.




It comes with a free screen protector. Its not a perfect fit. The sides wont stick since the screen is curved.




Thanks for checking it out!

Just ordered a white one, for 6.55 , should have plenty of grip with all those nobbles.

Thanks.

EDIT : No need for a cut out for the 5 pin connector, it`s just about certain you could not use you phone in the dock with the case on anyway.

John.

Thanks for the review and all the pics, looks like a nice case for the price especially with the much needed protection for the camera lens.

Good pictures mate and I agree its a fantastic case.
It is a touch harder then what I expected.

I purchased the clear, and on white from front and sides it hardly looks like a case, more like a halo or clear glow.

Took 9 days to arrive.

You got the white one? I am planning to buy that - can you post some pics and the link where you got from.
