    With the issues last year, not sure if I want to go back to Seido, even though I have a rugged, innocase 2 & active....lol

    I do like having the holster instead of a case though

    I love my ghost armor and would get another one.

    I love their cases. If anyone else does too, please email them to request them to make one for the EVO 3D. They had no plans when I emailed them, so it seems like interest might not have been there.

    As for screen protectors, I loved ghost armor on my Pre (hated zagg and the like). I may give phantom skinz a shot since they have a 2 for 1 deal and it's suppose to be similar to ghost armor.

    1. As a FYI, if you like Trident cases, such as the Cyclops or Kraken, they will be releasing one in mid-July for the 3D.

    But here's my question. No site has posted the specs of these cases, but I would think they are identical. Both HTC hard cases. Just one with a kickstand and one without. So could I get the best of both worlds and have holster for the kickstand case? To me it looks like it would work.

    HTC Hard Shell Case w/Holster | HTC 70H00431-00M | Cases / Pouches

    HTC Iconic Hard Shell Case w/Kickstand, Black | HTC 70H00430-00M | Cases / Pouches

    Where did you get the trident information from?

    So the kickstand case is 20 bucks wow! Is it going to be 39.99 everywhere else? I want to get one but I also like this Casemate pop one coming out with a kickstand in white. Sprint said they didn't know if they would have it or not and the website you posted says release date unknown.

    Edit : Wow I just saw here everything

    I want the desktop docking thing for 25 and I know BB is going to have one for 50 people say it is going to better so I may wait. I want one where phone in case works too. But this site has the Casemate Pop case I want I didn't know it so I may not get the HTC one I may get this one and it says estimated release date the 20th so you think I'll have it by Friday? I would hope so. Some case don't cover the whole back where the camera is and I like the whole thing to be covered. They have one there with a stand and it looks nice but the whole camera part is exposed it's called Body Glove Vibe slider and I like it but it looks like the whole camera is exposed. And the one called Casemate barely there has cutouts just for the camera and looks like it covers more. But I still like the white casemate pop with kickstand and the grey sides to grip. Gosh I want to try several cases from this site. LOL!

    I emailed Trident the other day:

    We will have cases for the EVO 3D, but they won’t likely be available until mid-July. Still, we are working on getting them out ASAP. Thanks!

    Glad you’re a fan!

    First off, AWESOME cases! I bought two for myself and one for my girlfriend and they have served our EVO 4Gs well. Fortunately for us we are upgrading the EVO 3D, but I haven't heard any buzz on a case - kraken, cyclopes or otherwise, from you guys. Any shot at one coming out soon? This phone is already a hot seller and an expensive piece of equipment we all want to protect.

    I hope you'll get back to me with some good news.

    Thanks,

    Kenan


    I already ordered the iGrip car mount (the only "made for" car mount out for the 3D), white POP Case and, black Tough Case from the site. What's nice is the payment is held until they actually ship the items. But how can you beat those prices?!

    Seidio is prepping a whole line-up of custom accessories, as well.

    If I were you I would hold off on the desk dock until someone other than Best Buy carries the slim version. It's awesome, but $50? Unless they have an exclusive deal, which they may because no one else even mentions it, you should be able to get a better deal in the coming weeks. If not, there may be another nice 3rd party dock to come out.

    Also, if you like to use your Evo for music or navigation while driving, but hate the Sense car dock screen that won't let you access music or customize, you can Google the real gingerbread car dock .apk. Custom background, 18 custom shortcuts (3 screen), full access to SD card.

    Yeah I like Best Buys version better than this one but I also have the seidio one for my EVO which I love cause it stays in the case while charging. If I sell my old accessories I'll buy the BB one. I love the prices though too at this site. I want the white pop case I think it's cool looking and I like it better than the HTC one and they both expose the whole camera. My guy friend just said that he thinks the ones that cover the camera better with just cut outs will protect better. I am ordering a couple different ones.Just can't decide right now. Some don't have pictures though.

    What about this one it says built in stand and that you can have phone both ways with stand. Is it like a kickstand case like the HTC and Pop cases? I love Seidio too and can't wait till they come out with an Inncoase Active like I have now on my EVO. I need to decide now which cases I want.

    The Vibe Slider case is the perfect color accent for your mobile device! This 1-piece slim hard shell case has a bold, high gloss finish with scratch-resistant coating to keep your case looking new over time. It is designed with a built-in stand to display your mobile device horizontal or vertical.

    I'm curious about that case above.

    I also have this bean bag car dock thing on my dash that I am going to use for this phone.. And I had an app called Car Home I got from the marketplace. Thanks for your input! I already ordered 3 extra batteries and 2 wall chargers from ebay. I want the Hybrid Tough Case too but there is one that says Pink/Black but there's no picture.. I like cases that cover the whole phone not where the top and bottom are exposed. I Some just show the back and not the front with the phone in it.

    From what I have seen about the Body Glove Vibe case, though this could only be true for the iPhone 4 case that was reviewed, but it will not fit with a screen protector on. That is an absolute deal breaker for me. Of course, the other Slider cases are 2 pieces and this is 1, which may make a difference with the screen protector.

    Case Mate's tough Hybrid Case will offer the best protection, I think, especially when it comes to the camera area. I am really looking forward to what Trident releases because of their built in camera and screen protectors. If you, like me, switch cases, you can actually leave a screen protector on with a trident case - no response problems through 2 layers.

    I have never had a bodyglove case but I just liked the Vibe slider one. I saw where mobilecityonline was going to have the same cases as Accessory King and someone answered at Accessory King when I called even though they weren't open and said even though it says estimated release date 6/20 on the casemate pop cases they won't know till Monday.

    Casemates actual site doesn't even list anything for the 3D. I just wanted a good case by Friday. The tough Hybrid case description reminds me of my Innoocase Active by Seidio where it has 2 pieces silicone with another layer of hard plastic. I think I want that one too in the pink and black which of course doesn't have an ETA. The plain black one says 6/27. And on Casemates site they have a pink and black pop case with a kickstand for the Thunderbolt I hope they make that color for the 3D. I already have my Clarivue Screen Protector too.

    About the Ballistic HC case.. Anyone heard when it may be available?

    I asked Ballistic about cases on their FACEBOOK page and they say they will have a SG case available. I have the HC case for my EVO and love it. It's huge but I hunt and it keeps the phone safe from a drop out of a tree stand

    Same here, had the Innocase 2, dropped it and it cracked, thankfully it still protected my Evo. Now I have an Active and a Rugged that I don't use.

    That coupled with the initial fit issues with the Innocase 2, I would never get one again.

    Looking at the link I don't see any cases like the one pictured available yet for the Evo3D. Hopefully one is available soon, that is the exact case I want (only one that will fit the Evo3D.

    If this is the case you're going with and you happen to find one, please let me know where as I want one as well! Thanks!

    You'll have to let me know how these screen protectors fit and work on the Evo3D. Like you, I want a screen protector that is just like the OEM one I got with my TP2, something that isn't expensive but fits well and is slick. 2 for 11 isn't a bad price. Could you share with me the link to the XDA thread so I can check them out as well?

    Anyone else find screen protectors that would be the equivalent of the stock ones on the TP2 for the Evo3D?

    how long did it take to receive? It looks like they are in WA. I just ordered one, and am in Northern CA. I wonder if it will be here by Friday.
  23. Seidio HAS POSTED PHOTOS OF THEIR CASES! Still can't order them just yet...dangit!

  25. I will be going with the Active case. I had an Innocase II but it cracked on me. I have dropped my EVO 4G on a carpeted floor at least 3 times in the past two weeks. Nothing has happened and its only fallen out of my bed.

    Now I have to buy a new dang holster for the EVO 3D. Dooh!

    I wouldn't invest in a kickstand case from Seidio. The one from HTC has a wider kickstand which means you can almost put the phone on any soft surface without it falling over (bed, pillow, couch). The Seidio kickstand looks like the same one we have on the EVO 4G.

    Seidio, how about an Active Case with Kickstand that has the kickstand of the HTC case guys?
