- Hi everyone, i just want to share with you all my new case i bought yesterday for $3.39 ..yeah, that's cheap .

link to buy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Heavy-Duty-D...item484e9f5e5e

Pros:
- Cheap, no1 priority
- Nice design, i guess, and it has multiple colors option for you to pick.
- Nice material. Hard plastic has matte surface ( like our phone Polycarbonate body but a little bit slippery.) The rubber is really soft, smooth and doesn't attract dust a lot( or maybe because the color of my case, i don't see them a lot. The case feel really nice and hight quality in hand
- Very protective for your phone ( raised up in front and around camera lens so you don't need to worry about how you put down your phone in any surface..)
- Case is perfectly fit the phone, except the usb port is a little bit not align but it will not affect when you plug in your usb cable.
- The case is design with curve along it edges + rubber is not really sticky , so it is very easy to put the phone in or pull the phone out of your pocket.

Cons:
- If you pay attention into detail , you will find out that rubber part is not sharply cut ( usb port, micro hole..), just some small details. For this price, i don't expect this case has to be like otterbox...
- Power button/ volume rocker are not raised up. But the rubber is really soft so you will have a nice feedback when you press them. You know what you are pressing at.
- Take very long time to get the phone ( took me 25 days, maybe due to chritmas/new year holiday)

How thick/solid seeming is the rubber part? Also, are the volume buttons raised up and if not how easy are they to press/would they press accidentally?

Rubber part is as thick as a normal tpu case (or just a little thicker) . volume and power button are not raised up but I have no problem with accidentally press them when phone is in my pocket.

Re: Best cheap heavy duty case i ever bought
Hey u notice one of ur pogo pins is covered, its kinda driving me crazy that sellers are saying these cases are compatible with both one x and xl. Yes they fit but there ARE differences like the pogo pins, camera alignment and sometimes usb cutouts...

Re: Best cheap heavy duty case i ever bought
The one xl pogo pins are unfortunately 100% useless so nobody on this forum cares if they are there or not

+1, i don't know what to do with that pogo pin either . If you use desktop/car dock then it won't fit the phone with any cases on. For this case, i have no problem with camera/usb port cut-out.

Re: Best cheap heavy duty case i ever bought
I got the red/black version today. It is what it is but for me I can't deal with all the imperfections. Maybe I'm spoiled by my incipio lining up perfect with every button and cutout. The feedback from the power and volume buttons just won't work for me either. It will go in the collection of free backup cases until something happens to the incipio. The devil is in the details for me. The $20 difference is huge but the fit and finish difference is huge too in my opinion.

EDIT: The pics honestly make the $3 case look ok, but in person and up close you can see and feel the drastic differences in quality.

^^,that's why this case costs $3. BTW,in my opinion, this case is $3 then your case should be around $10 . (> $20 is just too expensive )
