I'm not into video chat right now but it is convenient for quick photos with friends .
I do not know the name of the case that I have on my phone; I purchased it the same day at the Sprint store when I got the phone. I haven't had any issues with it interfering with the keyboard while typing. The LEDs that light up when pressing the shift key or the function key aren't as visible when pressed because of the case, but it is not a deal breaker.
The lack of a front facing camera is also not a deal breaker. Video chat in my opinion is overrated. Having a view screen when taking personal photos is a luxury that i can also do without, especially since there are so many picture editing apps on the market to enhance and crop photos taken with my Parkinson's like grip.
I would highly recommend this phone to anyone i come in contact with. The reasons I didn't go with the EVO 3D is the price and the fact that 3D seems like a novelty that will soon wear off and not to mention it hurts my eyes after about 20 seconds of looking at a 3D image on it.
