Default Not a single thread on what CASE you're using?

I'm shocked!
Every other phone I've bought and came on here to research had at least 15 threads where everyone was arguing about the best case to use. Strangely enough, this is the FIRST phone I've owned that I actually do want to put a thin skin/case on for two reasons:

1. The phone is too slippery and want a case to add some grip to it.

2. I already had 2 (small) scratches on the phone body and have no idea how, I think the metal on it scratches just by looking at it.

So what are you guys using? I'm shopping for something that covers everything but the screen (I'll put an Invisible Shield on the screen).

I like the iSkin I've seen for the Samsung GS3 but they don't make it for us.

Anyone have a case they love?

Black Impact Hybrid Hard Case Cover HTC EVO Design 4G Hero s Phone Accessory | eBay




This is what I use and it works great. The only thing I don't like is it is bulky especially at edge of screen. case sticks up to far and interferes with texting and playing games. Its also hard to move icons to other pages and if you use dolphin browser its hard to open side panel for favorites but as far as protection it is great.
Hope this helps

Personally I like my Defender Series OtterBox:
HTC Hero S Cases, Hero S Defender Series // OtterBox.com

Especially the belt holster which doubles as multiple position stand and offers extra protection of the screen when clipped inward.
Only problem I've had with it is sometimes moving the text selector to the far left or right of the screen is a little difficult but I don't mind it.
Plus OtterBox will usually replace the case(and holster) if you somehow damage either. (Dropped it while it was in the holster and somehow broke the hinge within the first week of having it and had a free replacement within a week. Of both the holster and the case and got to keep the old ones which with a little bit of super glue on the hinge are perfectly fine.)

While no one has told me so, some say that people have told them they sound muffled while using this case. (Though I suspect that maybe they didn't push the outer silicone skin into the hole on the bottom.)

Ordered. I will likely hate how bulky it is but... Phone slipped again today (dry winter time hands and this thing having ZERO grip is no good!) so I have to get something on it asap

+1 on the OtterBox. Absolutely no problems with usage or sound quality and also makes the phone a lot easier to get your hands around it.

Hope you like it. Other than it being bulky it really is a good case.
Glad I could help
