Couldn't resist this at $20, ordered a few hours ago on amazonUS and got a shipped email shortly after. Wish it had a kickstand on the case though, it's the only thing i'll miss about the cheap case i'm currently using. Also disappointing to hear the built in screen protector isn't tight against the screen, as the otterbox defender case I had on my s3 made it feel like an old resistive touch screen, still if it's an issue a sharp knife should fix it.

Is there any signal degradation with this case?

I believe it does have a kickstand. Mine was delivered today so I'll let you know when I get home.

Looking at the pictures it seems the spring clip on the holster can be used as a stand, but I haven't seen any other stand on it, would be happy to be wrong though.

Yep you're right. It's the optional clip.

Overall it's a good case. It feels a lot better than the tpu case that came with the original battery. My only complaint is the screen protector. You have a little space between the protector and the screen making you have to press a little harder. I did turn on high touch sensitivity and that helps a little.

No signal degradation from what I've noticed. The kick stand is on the holster, not the case.

Either I'm on drugs or this rugged case actually feels thinner and lighter than the phone does with the original TPU case.

Got mine in yesterday, not impressed. Well I should really say it's what you would expect a $20 otter box to be like. The screen protector isn't flush with the phone, the port covers can depress into the port, it's even thicker width wise than an otterbox, has a smaller front lip than an otterbox.

That said, the volume/power buttons are some of the best I've used on a rugged case. The back is smooth so it's easy to get out of a pocket but there's still braille style dots on the side for grip.

If you're going to use the zerolemon i'd recommend this case if you don't own a dremel to do the otter box mod.

from what you said is the only really bad thing is the screen protector if anything im just going to cut it out if i do not like it. i look at it this way it has to be safer than just using the TPU case for my 7500 mAh battery.
