    Any recommendations for silicone cases?


    I saw the Amzer site, the price wasn't bad, but wouldn't a cheap ebay product made in China fare the same for about 300% less?

    Thoughts?

    I intend on getting a screen protector as well, but I'll wait for reviews to hit. I want something that won't impact the sensitivity or clarity of the screen.

    I just ordered the silicone jelly case and screen protector from amzer.com. I usually go naked, but I'll give this a try for the price to start with.

    I was looking at the Amzer gel case as well. Since there are no reviews for the evo one I looked at the HTC INC. reviews assuming they are made of the same material. They were mixed, most complained about it being a dust collector was all. I hate that it won't ship until 6/7. I plan to see what is in the stores then order over the weekend if I can't find anything.

    All my phone's have been naked. I think I'll probably do the same as you. I'm pretty rough with my devices, and I don't care to damage a device that is essentially 4.3 inches of glass in the front.

    i am also interested in some sort of rubber silicon case. justin, from epik cases, told me that he should have those in for the evo 2-3 weeks after the phone is released. it's frustrating that i can already find cases for the hd2 for only $1.99 and free shipping on ebay. i may go with amzer because i don't want my phone to go unprotected. i wish the kiosks in the mall carried something, but i have only seen the type of cases i want online.

    The amzer luxe argyle cases seem pretty good and look even better, they don't ship until 6/7 though.

    I'm waiting for Seidio's offering but I'm sure there will be a wait. They don't even have Incredible cases yet.

    Case Mate is another good choice. I hope that I can pick up a generic silicone case at Sprint on June 4th. I need something day one.

    Agreed. If you recall watching the EVO NYC event, there were some shots of silicone cases. I hope Sprint will have those on release day.

    It is a gel case, only difference is that it contains a multi-color diamond like pattern.

    I don't remember which one but 1 of the cases from that company looked like it completely covered the front camera and 1 looked like it covered it 1/2 way. Just be careful what you choose and make sure it is what you want. I personally will wait and see what they have in the sprint store when I go buy the phone.

    I want a gel case/cover but do not want an actual pouch (the kind you see mostly guys wearing on the belt or trousers) to put the phone in. And I don't want a hard cover/case either. Too bad I have no freaking clue on what is good and not good. Ugh.

    it "appears" that only the argyle case would work w/ the evo w/o hindering functions of the phone such as the camera(s)

    What's next, unboxing for spare batteries and chargers? Lol

    But it would be niced if they nixed the diamond pattern.

    I ordered the Amzer argyle case and already took delivery on a zagg screen cover for my EVO. The Amzer cases are the very same that Verizon sells for the Incredible and they are very nice. I ordered a smoke one. I will also order a cheap one from ebay because the Amzer looks like its not going to ship until the middle of June.

    I guess you've never followed the iPhone unboxings on You-Tube. They have people who unbox clear screen protectors. Everyone wants to be a star. :D

    The problem I have with these cases is that they will keep you from being able to use the car dock they're releasing for the Evo, and it looks pretty slick.
