Will post pics and review in the OP tonight when I can.

nice review :bigthumb:

would you say its in the otter commuter category as well? is there sagging along the lip or is it snug enough not to let particles in?

The lip around the screen seems much smaller than the commuter and overall I think is below the commuter in terms of overall protection.

How are the edges for the PC portion of the case? The tough case I had for my S2 had pretty sharp edges on the bottom portion, ended up sanding it down a bit. No other gripes though, slim case with dual layer protection had survived numerous drops.

To answer a few of the questions, and ill try to update the review so its covered.

The machining and edges are good. They are exact and dont have sharges pieces/areas. Im actually surprised how well the plastic hugs the corners and is flush with the tpu inner.

The rim hugs the phone very well. Since they used a harder material than silicone it does not pull up, and wont let particles in. The one place they can slightly is by the camera, as seen in the pics. But only for about 1/2 mm before it is flush again.

One thing I love, which I def will add to the review, is how solid it is everywhere. There isnt a creak or movement of any type, without feeling too tight like the incipio (imo). With how much this phone creaks holding it naked, the case feels like its holding the phone together

Thanks for measuring...
If it's anything like the previous Tough Case, the rubber will stretch allowing you to push the headphone plug in just fine. I have the Westone UM3X and it has a lip that won't fit in hard cases, but works fine in my previous Tough Case for my Galaxy S2.
