I have looked high and low for a case that is durable, thin(not the ultra thin ones), but isn't silicon. Anyone using something like this? I need it to be able to slide in and out of my pocket fairly easily. (Hence why I'm avoiding silicon cases) If there's one that does this and covers the volume rocker as well as keeps the phone from laying on the screen or camera, I'd have all my wants met.

Preferably matte black, if I can have it. Thanks!

I am on the same hunt also. Narrowed it down to the silicrylic and ballistic SG. I like the sleekness of the silicrylic, but the robustness and confidence I can have with the ballistic is tempting.

Seidio surface case. Same thing as the platinum. People complain about the button covers breaking but mine have not snagged on anything nor do I feel they are flimsy. In order to break them you would need to have the mind of a two year old that's on a mission to break things.

I'm not allowed to post links yet, but go to incipio's website and if you go to smart phone cases > htc > htc one x(att) there are a couple cases there. The feather and feather shine are very thin and pretty good looking. I'd recommend the normal feather(black one). I had both but the black one is more durable. The shine one looks really slick, but the corners of the case that line up with the corners of the phone ended up breaking after a month or two. The other one should fair better because it isn't made of out the same plastic material.

Thanks for the replies. I had also looked at the silicryllic and ballistic. Thinking along the lines of one of those. Not sure if I want something that makes the phone huge(er) in the hand than it already is Haha.

check out the Nillkin TPU case... This is the best case I have ever found for a phone. Love the thinness and matte look/feel. Keeps the sexyness to the phone and also has a nice lip for the camers (something that I have yet to find on a thin case for this phone. Will never buy another case for this phone again...

I heard that the nilkin was meant for the international so the camera doesn't line up and perfectly with ours

I clicked this thread by mistake, but as the case i use on my One X is compatible with One XL i would recomend you the Momax iCase Pro it is made of TPU+Polycarbonate it doesn't add much bulk to the phone while giving very decent protection, the case protudes a bit on the top and bottom to avoid the screen hitting the floor first, it protudes on the back around the camera and overall its a tight fit and feels very well in the hand, slides in the pocket nicely too!
