I really want that HTC case with the kick stand but for $30 I don't know if it's worth it.
I use Boxwave screen protectors as well. Their screen protector is considered #1 in the industry and it will cover the screen and capacitive buttons on the EVO. Also, if it gets to oily, just rinse it off and shake it dry. Then it will stick right back to the screen. I always get the anti-glare screen protector which allows me to view the screen in the glare of the hot Texas sun.

Alright folks, here's you all should know about screen protectors:

PART ONE IN A TWO PART SERIES

1) Why you'd want to consider a screen protector (or the risks of going bare):

It's fairly well known that the Evo 3D will be using Corning Gorilla Glass, and I'm sure many of you have seen videos where people have hammered away at Gorilla Glass screens with pens and rubbed all manner of keys, razor blades, etc. against them. But, the videos are worthless.

Gorilla Glass is great and is an improvement over other glass, tempered or otherwise in terms of strength and scratch resistance, but it is not the be-all end-all to scratch problems and many, many, many Gorilla Glass devices have been known to be scratched.

Why?

If you recall from grade school Earth Science, glass is known to have a hardness of anywhere from ~5.5-7ish on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness (which is a scratch test ranking of minerals). Let's assume that Gorilla Glass, because of its improved temper process, is at the far end of that scale -- 7 to 7.5. This means that Gorilla Glass will be scratch proof to most soft metals (iron, copper, nickel, lead, gold, and most types of unhardened steel), plastic, and harsh language. So your keys, razor blades, and paper clips are likely not to scratch the screen.

This however does not comprise the entire universe of things that will come into contact with the screen. What commonly occurring substance will still scratch the screen with ease? SAND. Sand is made of small bits of silica minerals like quartz, and small grains of other hard minnerals, all of which with hardness of 7 and up. These will easily scratch the screen with the slightest bit of effort. Furthermore, it's not unusual for sand and other debris to be caught in the pockets of jeans during the stone washing process (I know I've had to wash jeans with the pockets inside out several times to rid some of them of all the grit and sand), and just stuffing a bare phone into a jeans pocket and subject it to scratching risk.

The videos are fairly silly because I'm fairly confident that with your average glass -- say a window pane, windshield, etc., these things would effectively resist scratching by keys, razor blades, plastic pens, etc. just as well as Gorilla Glass. (Also note that the impact part of it is silly -- how "hard" you try to scratch a surface really plays no role in whether you can or not). When our keys would scratch something, like our older ipods or older cell phones, it's because the screens they used were made of plastic, which is extremely soft -- maybe 3 or 4 at best on the Mohs scale.

Now that most if not all large touchscreen devices have switched to glass in general (the Palm Pre was the last major touchscreen device I know of to use plastic), there is already a significant improvement in scratch resistance, and Gorilla Glass adds a bit more.

Screen protectors are certainly a matter of personal preference, and with Gorilla Glass, we've come a far way in terms of scratch resistance -- enough such that I don't think it's reckless to go without a screen protector. However, it's a matter of managing risk, because there is still a risk your screen can get scratched. At least for me, I'd rather replace a screen protector than an entire screen or worse, live with an imperfection on the screen itself for the lifetime of the device.


NEXT -- the different kinds of screen protectors and why, and their advantages/disadvantages.

Thank me if you found this useful.

I can't wait for Boxwave to make their screen protectors but I always end up with them. I just bought the clarivue ones mentioned at the beginning of the thread just so I can have some protection so when Boxwave makes theirs I always end up with those on. They always fit exactly on the screen too.

Now I want a case. Can't decide if I want a case, a case with a kickstand, or actually go with a pouch with belt holster.

I can't do any protector besides Invisishield anymore. Did Boxwave, tried a few others. I just prefer the feel of the invisishield.

Who cares about gorilla glass? The EVO 4G has gorilla glass on it and the glass will still scratch and break. Unless you make a phone out of the glass used on bullet proof windows the glass on any phone will scratch or break.

I have put a Seido Innocase II and an Invishield on the screen. The case is a little to aggressive, it left some wear marks on the sides and ate up the corners of the screen protector. With that said the protection is fantastic. I am very rough with my phone and it still looks new.

I had an Innocase ll but I cracked it and ordered an Innocase Active. The active case is the way to go for the 3VO. And if you like changing things up, Seidio makes white cases that look great on the EVO.

So I got the Nillkin in the mail last night. I was pretty impressed with the thickness and feel and the faceplate. Also a screen protector came with it as a surprise. I ordered a separate protector made by Nillkin also so I wonder how they compare. I would hope the one I spent $4 on would be better than the one that comes with the protector but they are pretty similar in texture. I will find out after I get the EVO 3D.

I do want to note that I would preferred the top and the bottom of the faceplate to cover a little bit more than that but I'll see how I fare with it and decide if I will order something else.

I also ordered a bunch of backup batteries from Ebay that are showing up and a universal car dock/charger from Obostore after I get the Nillkin as I feel more safe with them now that I got a product with them.

Couldn't figure out how to link the photos directly on this site so just attached the link to my album. Anyone want to teach me how to link Picasa pictures to the forum? Thanks.

The OtterBox cases are legit. I have the Defender Series of the case for the EVO 4G It came with a kick stand on it. it is very flimsy though, I barely use it.

I think the best bet for a kickstand case is the HTC version. From the pictures, it looks like a robust case and they obviously went the extra mile with stability with the size of the kickstand, itself. The one thing that bugs me a little is that it looks like the case does not fully envelope the lower edge of the phone. It my be the poor angle of the picture, that that did catch my eye. Has anyone else found more pictures of the HTC version kickstand case?

I messed up my Innocase II also and got the active my favorite case yet. I love the feel of the phone in my hand and I just love the case. My phone fell out of my lap as I was getting out of the car and chipped some purple paint off the side of the case and phone was fine. I also had a Clarivue screen protector and I already got my Clarivue now for my 3D. I hope Seidio makes there cases pretty quick for the 3D. I also like the Casemate Pop that there making with a kickstand and the HTC kickstand case. But I wish Siedio would make an Innocase Active with a kickstand that would be awesome. I need to have a case before I get the phone.

so my question is, do either of the boxwave or invisishield release the same day as the phone? i rather get a screen protector on it the very first time i use it so i don't have to deal with cleaning the screen and making sure there isn't dust.

The standard gel cases are fine in my opinion, the only issue with them I have noticed is that after a period of time they start to fit a little loose. So I won't do gel/silicone cases anymore, I would rather go for a tpu case. They fit better and are more durable and protect better in case of a drop.

Looks like Surface is getting a kickstand but Active is not (yet, at least). Kinda sucks since the kickstand is nice to have when you want/need it, but I rarely use it.

In any case, with my EVO 4G a Seidio case + Ultimate Screen Guard has been a winning combination. The Seidio case doesn't add much bulk and the USG makes you forget that you're even using a screen protector.

For anyone thats interested, someone just posted a video of one of the otter box defender cases that were bought on ebay. A little too much going on for my taste but it looks like good protection for the phone.

What's the texture of TPU? Grippy or slick? Hard or soft?

I don't need the combo with the holster. And the active only list black but I do love the active case I have now. But I dropped it once and purple paint chipped off and you see black so maybe black is good. I want this one casemate pop kickstand case I have been seeing or I may end up liking the HTC one. I bet I end up with a couple cases. Gonna order extra batteries off ebay too.

With the issues last year, not sure if I want to go back to Seido, even though I have a rugged, innocase 2 & active....lol

I do like having the holster instead of a case though

I love my ghost armor and would get another one.

I love their cases. If anyone else does too, please email them to request them to make one for the EVO 3D. They had no plans when I emailed them, so it seems like interest might not have been there.

As for screen protectors, I loved ghost armor on my Pre (hated zagg and the like). I may give phantom skinz a shot since they have a 2 for 1 deal and it's suppose to be similar to ghost armor.

1. As a FYI, if you like Trident cases, such as the Cyclops or Kraken, they will be releasing one in mid-July for the 3D.

But here's my question. No site has posted the specs of these cases, but I would think they are identical. Both HTC hard cases. Just one with a kickstand and one without. So could I get the best of both worlds and have holster for the kickstand case? To me it looks like it would work.

So the kickstand case is 20 bucks wow! Is it going to be 39.99 everywhere else? I want to get one but I also like this Casemate pop one coming out with a kickstand in white. Sprint said they didn't know if they would have it or not and the website you posted says release date unknown.

Edit : Wow I just saw here everything

I want the desktop docking thing for 25 and I know BB is going to have one for 50 people say it is going to better so I may wait. I want one where phone in case works too. But this site has the Casemate Pop case I want I didn't know it so I may not get the HTC one I may get this one and it says estimated release date the 20th so you think I'll have it by Friday? I would hope so. Some case don't cover the whole back where the camera is and I like the whole thing to be covered. They have one there with a stand and it looks nice but the whole camera part is exposed it's called Body Glove Vibe slider and I like it but it looks like the whole camera is exposed. And the one called Casemate barely there has cutouts just for the camera and looks like it covers more. But I still like the white casemate pop with kickstand and the grey sides to grip. Gosh I want to try several cases from this site. LOL!

But here's my question. No site has posted the specs of these cases, but I would think they are identical. Both HTC hard cases. Just one with a kickstand and one without. So could I get the best of both worlds and have holster for the kickstand case? To me it looks like it would work.

HTC Hard Shell Case w/Holster | HTC 70H00431-00M | Cases / Pouches

HTC Iconic Hard Shell Case w/Kickstand, Black | HTC 70H00430-00M | Cases / Pouches

I emailed Trident the other day:

customerservice@tridentcase.com to me
show details Jun 16 (2 days ago)
We will have cases for the EVO 3D, but they won’t likely be available until mid-July. Still, we are working on getting them out ASAP. Thanks!

Glad you’re a fan!

First off, AWESOME cases! I bought two for myself and one for my girlfriend and they have served our EVO 4Gs well. Fortunately for us we are upgrading the EVO 3D, but I haven't heard any buzz on a case - kraken, cyclopes or otherwise, from you guys. Any shot at one coming out soon? This phone is already a hot seller and an expensive piece of equipment we all want to protect.

I hope you'll get back to me with some good news.

Thanks,

Kenan


I already ordered the iGrip car mount (the only "made for" car mount out for the 3D), white POP Case and, black Tough Case from the site. What's nice is the payment is held until they actually ship the items. But how can you beat those prices?!

Seidio is prepping a whole line-up of custom accessories, as well.

If I were you I would hold off on the desk dock until someone other than Best Buy carries the slim version. It's awesome, but $50? Unless they have an exclusive deal, which they may because no one else even mentions it, you should be able to get a better deal in the coming weeks. If not, there may be another nice 3rd party dock to come out.

Also, if you like to use your Evo for music or navigation while driving, but hate the Sense car dock screen that won't let you access music or customize, you can Google the real gingerbread car dock .apk. Custom background, 18 custom shortcuts (3 screen), full access to SD card.

Yeah I like Best Buys version better than this one but I also have the seidio one for my EVO which I love cause it stays in the case while charging. If I sell my old accessories I'll buy the BB one. I love the prices though too at this site. I want the white pop case I think it's cool looking and I like it better than the HTC one and they both expose the whole camera. My guy friend just said that he thinks the ones that cover the camera better with just cut outs will protect better. I am ordering a couple different ones.Just can't decide right now. Some don't have pictures though.

What about this one it says built in stand and that you can have phone both ways with stand. Is it like a kickstand case like the HTC and Pop cases? I love Seidio too and can't wait till they come out with an Inncoase Active like I have now on my EVO. I need to decide now which cases I want.

The Vibe Slider case is the perfect color accent for your mobile device! This 1-piece slim hard shell case has a bold, high gloss finish with scratch-resistant coating to keep your case looking new over time. It is designed with a built-in stand to display your mobile device horizontal or vertical.

I'm curious about that case above.

I also have this bean bag car dock thing on my dash that I am going to use for this phone.. And I had an app called Car Home I got from the marketplace. Thanks for your input! I already ordered 3 extra batteries and 2 wall chargers from ebay. I want the Hybrid Tough Case too but there is one that says Pink/Black but there's no picture.. I like cases that cover the whole phone not where the top and bottom are exposed. I Some just show the back and not the front with the phone in it.

From what I have seen about the Body Glove Vibe case, though this [I]could[I] only be true for the iPhone 4 case that was reviewed, but it will not fit with a screen protector on. That is an absolute deal breaker for me. Of course, the other Slider cases are 2 pieces and this is 1, which may make a difference with the screen protector.

Case Mate's tough Hybrid Case will offer the best protection, I think, especially when it comes to the camera area. I am really looking forward to what Trident releases because of their built in camera and screen protectors. If you, like me, switch cases, you can actually leave a screen protector on with a trident case - no response problems through 2 layers.

I have never had a bodyglove case but I just liked the Vibe slider one. I saw where mobilecityonline was going to have the same cases as Accessory King and someone answered at Accessory King when I called even though they weren't open and said even though it says estimated release date 6/20 on the casemate pop cases they won't know till Monday.

Casemates actual site doesn't even list anything for the 3D. I just wanted a good case by Friday. The tough Hybrid case description reminds me of my Innoocase Active by Seidio where it has 2 pieces silicone with another layer of hard plastic. I think I want that one too in the pink and black which of course doesn't have an ETA. The plain black one says 6/27. And on Casemates site they have a pink and black pop case with a kickstand for the Thunderbolt I hope they make that color for the 3D. I already have my Clarivue Screen Protector too.

I asked Ballistic about cases on their FACEBOOK page and they say they will have a SG case available. I have the HC case for my EVO and love it. It's huge but I hunt and it keeps the phone safe from a drop out of a tree stand

Same here, had the Innocase 2, dropped it and it cracked, thankfully it still protected my Evo. Now I have an Active and a Rugged that I don't use.

That coupled with the initial fit issues with the Innocase 2, I would never get one again.

Looking at the link I don't see any cases like the one pictured available yet for the Evo3D. Hopefully one is available soon, that is the exact case I want (only one that will fit the Evo3D.

If this is the case you're going with and you happen to find one, please let me know where as I want one as well! Thanks!

You'll have to let me know how these screen protectors fit and work on the Evo3D. Like you, I want a screen protector that is just like the OEM one I got with my TP2, something that isn't expensive but fits well and is slick. 2 for 11 isn't a bad price. Could you share with me the link to the XDA thread so I can check them out as well?

Anyone else find screen protectors that would be the equivalent of the stock ones on the TP2 for the Evo3D?

There was also a coupon that you can enter ("clear630" without the quotes), but not sure if it works any more. My guess would be it's good through the end of the month (hence the 630), but not sure by any means.

I will be going with the Active case. I had an Innocase II but it cracked on me. I have dropped my EVO 4G on a carpeted floor at least 3 times in the past two weeks. Nothing has happened and its only fallen out of my bed.

Now I have to buy a new dang holster for the EVO 3D. Dooh!

I wouldn't invest in a kickstand case from Seidio. The one from HTC has a wider kickstand which means you can almost put the phone on any soft surface without it falling over (bed, pillow, couch). The Seidio kickstand looks like the same one we have on the EVO 4G.

Seidio, how about an Active Case with Kickstand that has the kickstand of the HTC case guys?
