Default Cell-Nerds Triple Defender Case

Amazon.com: Cell-Nerds Triple Defender Case Cover Black and White compatible with The Sprint HTC EVO 3D 4G or The Virgin Mobile HTC EVO V - Cell-Nerds Packaging: Cell Phones & Accessories

What do you guys think of it? I'm going to be buying it real soon, and wanted the community's opinion.

It's a nice case for the money, I looked at it but got the Seidio Active Combo instead. They're similar in bulk and protection but the Seidio was guaranteed to fit my dock plus having a belt clip. Unless you keep it in your pocket I would definitely advise against white, gets scuffed up pretty quickly. Good luck dude.

It would definitely protect your phone but I thought it was too huge and got a smaller but protective two piece hybrid case instead. Just don't get white it shows up dirt marks and scratches.

Damn, on my phone, I'm using a black and white theme; everything is black and white. I wanted to match it...

If you really want white, go for it! I just don't like getting white cases because damage shows up on it. For example, if you drop it in dirt, it might stain unless you clean it. If you have a darker case it won't show as much dirt or damage.

Thanks to advice bro. Any thoughts on the speaker since the case covers it? Do you think I will hear a significant drop of volume from the case?

There's a small cutout for the speaker, you shouldn't hear much difference.

I didn't see a cut out in the pics like most cases, that was one of the first things I noticed. And I think I remember a rating on the case that said the speaker was covered; might be wrong though. If it has cut out like most cases, then that's a plus.

I have the yellow/black. I do have trouble hearing the ringtones but using tunein right now and the sound is good. The case is alright it is a black silicone cover with beefed up corners and a hard plastic back cover to go over the black. It has a good look. The cut out on the back is over the cameras but for the speaker there is a little opening that looks like a thumb tab. The camera buttons are harder to get to and the USB port is harder to use. The power and volume buttons are covered but the case has overlay buttons for them and a still functional. I have not had a problem with is. I dropped the phone with case already at work on concrete floor and it survived.

I have this same case on my wife's 3d but it's black on black. It does make it bulky but that helps you keep a good grip on it. I picked this one because it looked to be the most sturdy one for the Buck. And i an very glad i did. She drops every phone she has ever had hundreds of times no matter what. This case I'd holding up great and would recommend it.

I have the Seidio cases and with the amount of dirt and lint I pick up, I'd probably rather have white. Or a less tacky silicone material.

Unfortunately, I am running the extended Seidio Battery (Platinum version) so my case options are limited.

I suppose I could have went with one of the standard extended batteries that come with a flast battery cover, then gone with a plain case. I may still do this one day...

That should be fine going by the description, our phone is identical to the 3d's hardware, only our software is different.

I just found the same case on ebay by searching Evo3d /G17 in the cell phone accessories section.

G17 is the HK clone version of this HTC phone.

The only problem I have with Photobucket is that it reduces my images quality a fair amount. Everything about the app is nice and simple but the quality reduction is what makes me not use it.

I got mine in (also orange), and I must say I don't like it very much. The cover comes off too easily and the rubber is very grippy and pulls off of the phone when I pull it out of my pocket.

I posted a review on the orange/black version on Amazon, but as a new user here, it says I cannot post links... See my pictures in in the customer images.

I have this case for our 3vo and love it. Just the cutout for the 3d and camera off a bit. But I don't use the 3d or the button to take pictures and I am on cm10.1 so it works out. Wife drops the phone ALLOT. and this case has made it so that we have zero marks on it.

The silicone on the Seidio Active is much better, fits perfectly and doesn't stretch out, it's also not sticky so when you take it out of your pocket it comes right out and doesn't remove every piece of lint that you have in there.

I agree. If you're going to use the silicone then have a holster for it. No pockets.

Mobile accessories like a Defender case is a great protector for you smart phone that even if it accidentally drop on the floor the case will absorb the impact. Check E_cell for mobile accessories.
