What the hey..been using Diztronic TPU cases since about 5 phones ago (Sensation?) through the recent Nexus series 4 and 5. Now my G3 sports the familiar thin protector in black, and once again Diz has the winning combo: reduced slippery matte back, glossy narrow front lip with slight elevation for placing phone face down without worry, and a no bulk thin cover which has always protected my phones from dozens upon dozens of drops and never a cracked screen. Around 10 bucks and money well spent.[emoji41]

Edit: Just looked it up..1.44mm thin and under an ounce, made in Wiscahnsuhn, donchaknow..

I've always been a fan of the Diztronic case for my phones as well. However, since I was in a hurry to get a case when I got my phone I did some searching around for other TPU options to hold me over. I ended up with the Fosmon TPU Case and man am I impressed! The fit is excellent with perfect cutouts. And the lip around the edges to protect the screen is there but not nearly as bulky as what I've previously experienced with Diztronic cases.

I must admit that this case has prevented me from even considering switching to another TPU case, even when Diztronic releases one. Especially when you consider that this case is only $5.97 shipped!

My Best Buy Insignia case looks just like Fosman. It was 15 bucks. I just needed something quick. I have a bumper case coming.

Just odd that they look same. Well one says Fosman. I'm bummed my Nillkin case is a little bulky but really like the looks of it. That's why I like spending a little more money at stores so I can easily return it. Oh well that case was only 6 bucks.

Yeah..sometimes I justify the extra price (even double on lower cost goods) for ability to handle and test, and possibly to return, but also the price of instant gratification. It will take a week to get the Fosman and if I didn't already have the Diz...but it will be fun to compare the two. [emoji4]

Okiedoke...Fosman has arrived, and I AM impressed. It's noticeably thinner than the Diz, which feels a bit more rigid. The Fosman also has more gloss finish around the margins and curves of the phone, so it feels softer in the hand than the Diz, which has a ridge or seams of transition between the matte and gloss finishes. I think the Fosman TPU, while slightly thinner, should offer similar protection from drops, feels more pliable, softer in hand, but has a few mold marks and isn't as perfectly finished as the Diz, but then is a few bucks cheaper than the Diz. Both are worth the money, either way! Cheers!

Edit: I'm also noticing a difference in the matte finish feel between the backs of the two: The Diz feels like a smooth rubber, while the Fosman feels a bit coarser and more like textured plastic.
