I have the commuter and for screen cover went with Zaggs HD screen cover. slips in pocket nice, only 4 silcone contact points(both bottom corners, power and vol rocker)smooth not sticky rubber. case amps the sound up a little(think 1900 recorder player)took a drop from 3 feet flat on it back and no problem. the tabs covering the jack and usb plug are covered so no litter or dust worries. Over all a good case if you like carring in your pocket, if you like the holster style on ur belt get the defender, but the commuter doesnt bulk it up to much. and with 2 piece construction impacts are lessed vs a 1 piece case. simple physics.
