Fincibo (TM) LG Volt F90 LS740 Protector Cover Case Snap On Hard Plastic - Keep Calm and Kill Zombies, Front And Back:Amazon:Cell Phones & Accessories

Here's the one I've ordered. Still waiting for it to get here. Doesn't really seem like it'll be that great of protection, but I liked it, and don't care for a lot of bulk.

Can you guys that bought this case report back and give your opinion on it?

I wonder how much on the front it overlaps. It looks like a nice case, but from the overlap in the picture, it might not be enough for my personal taste.

I like a case with plenty of overlap - enough that it goes over the screen protector to help hold it down (and enough that the case does not easily slip off).

Thanks

I posted a brief review of the Body Glove case I'm using here in the forum, along with pictures. Here's a link to the case on Radio Shack's site: Body Glove Satin Case for LG Volt (Black) - RadioShack.com

And here's a link to my original post: Body Glove Satin Case

I just got this case
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IWE17GM
It is bulkier than the cases that I usually get, but not as bulky as an Otterbox. It has a pretty solid kickstand, and it was just $1 when I got it, so yeah, pretty sweet deal.

I ordered this one yesterday. I'm a fan of bright colors, but the style has many color combos and variations:

Just got mine and put it on. Looks and feels nice, overhangs the screen protector just enough and the plastic portion of the case prevents it from easily slipping on and off and doesnt overhang too much where it would interfere with the operation of the phone.. Havent dropped it yet so cant comment on how well it protects.

Why is it so damn hard to find a body glove case for the LG Volt? It seems the only seller is radio shack. Hell, even the body glove main site does not have a link for the LG VOLT to buy. I had a body glove for my previous phone and really loved it. I have dropped my current phone numerous times and the body glove has served me well.

It seems the aero armor case (stargate's) does not have any rubber on the sides of the phone to aid in gripping. Other than that, I guess thats my choice.

Seems like the case choices are pretty limited atm.

Default Aero Armor case

I bought the Aero Armor case from Amazon in red. While it is not quite as "grippy" as a few cases for my previous phone, the Virgin Optimus, I find it is pretty solidly made, not slippery or slidey in hand, and also fairly nice looking in a uni-sex sort of way. For $10 plus free Prime shipping, not a bad deal at all. This model is really new, so I expect more companies will be making cases for the Volt/F90 very soon.

yea i bought it in white, Its not the most grippy case but as you said its definately not slippery either. I actually like it this way. My last case on my old phone had a plastic shell with a rubber cover over that, it was overly grippy and annoying to get out of the pocket sometimes lol. This is much better IMO

The Aero Armor case is the best. I've only tried two, but this case reminds me of the case I had for my last phone and fits relatively well. I would avoid the Thousand Eight case, it fits alright after being on, but is kind of bulky and unnecessary, came with a stylus and screen protector neither I use now since they got messed up.

Just wanted to say this case is great! The kickstand is solid and works for either orientation. Case fits snug too. Great buy!

I just purchased this frosted/clear TPU case from Ebay. I didn't want anything bulky and TPU cases always seem to fit nice and snug. It was only $4.95 with free shipping.

I will most likely end up getting a case similiar to this one so I can have another option. Amazon.com: AERO ARMOR Protective Case for LG Volt LS740 - WHITE: Cell Phones & Accessories

I have this TPU case, while it is slim..it doesn't offer the greatest protection and the back is slippery. Also, the back part of mine had these warped looking areas that looks like maybe it was in the sun too long? Maybe it was just my seller tho, I got it from For LG Volt LS740 F90 Color Ultra Thin Slim TPU Skin Case Matte Cover Accessory | eBay in black.

I have ordered the Aero Armor case and expect it later today to arrive - I've heard good things about it

This is the one I bought in black. It has a kickstand and clip for your pants pocket or belt.
