    No protection, but in a pocket on its own. Keys, money, card holder on the other side!

    I believe I'm choosing flexi-shield as the snap together type hard cases. Picked up a cheap rubberized one on Amazon for $8.

    Can anyone recommend a good case/holster for the HTC Hero.

    I want one which holds the phone vertically, with a belt clip (not loop).

    Cheers Ian

    Direct from the manufacturer here. It was shipped to the UK in five days, very well packaged. Quality is excellent; it's a perfect fit and all slots/cutouts align exactly with the handset.

    Apologies.... the link I copied was the Chinese page, although for some reason I was viewing it in English. I've corrected the mistake.

    Nothing other than a screen protector. Since that distorts the view of the screen very slightly in places (probably because I was a bit careless when I put it on) I'm not sure it was a good idea. When I think how resistant to scratches my glasses (spectacles) are I wonder whether a screen protector isn't a bit OTT. Presumably the Hero screen is similarly scratch-resistant.
