Gel/jelly are the same as silicone cases (soft)- not the same as crystal/TPU cases (a bit harder).


-sent from my Samsung Vibrant via XDAapp

YOU DONT KNOW ****!!!!!!! lol j/k ok lets just call it TPU and Silicone to keep it simple

just ordered my TPU case with 3 screen protectors (you know since i have 3 screens) and three wipe cloths (in case i forget my hanky?) as you can see in the description its a "Silicone" TPU case, it must be a hybrid case? lol j/k Ebay descriptions misinform everyone

when i "Google'd" Gel case and Jelly case and clicked on "images" a whole **** load of TPU cases came up BTW

^^^ that's what got me kind of confused cause eBayers can list their products as multiple materials and only when you get in and read the fine print does it clarify what it is exactly. I was about to buy the exact one you bought but the buy it now price jumped to $43 as I was going though the checkout process...

thanks for everyone's help with this. Last night I bought a cheapy (link) to hold me over till there are more options.

finally went to the t moble store and got their case. its the same as the one a few posts back that has pictures. I do like it, but wish it fit just a little more snug. im coming from a mytouch that had a snap on hard shell, so im used to them fitting tight. this will do for now. thanks for the info

now, guess ill order the clearfreaks screen protector from ebay... not thrilled, but dont see to many other "good" options at this point

is it true that the silicon type of cases doesnt allow the heat to dissipate and heats up the device ?
