I have been using the Case-mate tough case and decided to try something a little thinner. I didn't really need the added protection the case mate offered. Here is the review on the case-mate if interested. http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-reviews/235121-review-case-mate-tough-case.html Sorry in advance for the crappy pictures. So I really liked the Seidio Innocase II but didn't want to wait to get it in the mail. I have read how the Best Buy Platinum Case is the same thing so I went to Best Buy to pick it up. Here is my little review. Walked in and saw they had the case in gunmetal for $29.99 and then they had the case and holster for $34.99 in black. I wanted black so I picked up the black with holster even though I may never use the holster and it was $5 more. Upon looking at the packaging you can see it is in fact made by Seidio. Also the case is the newer style material and has more felt than the original. The case is super easy to install. Slides right on and did not catch on the screen protector. It is tall enough on the back to not hit the camera when on the counter. Also if you put it face down it keeps it off of the screen. All the buttons are cut out fully. The power button and volume buttons are a little akward because the case gets in the way a little. That is my only real complaint but you get used to it. Also it would be nice if it was cut out more on the aux slot so you can use a 90* cable with out it hitting. Holster is face in design only and cant be used the other way. Very secure and it swivels to turn the phone sideways. Overall the case is pretty perfect for me. I had no complaints about my case mate tough case except it was too thick. This case is WAY thinner. Almost adds nothing to the phone. It offers similar protection too. It does not have the silicone layer but it is still more than enough. The new inside and felt should prevent all scratching too. Again my only real complaint is the button cutouts make the buttons pretty deep in the phone and a little akward to use but not that bad. I dont feel any looseness at all and dont see me having that creaking problem the older cases had. Any questions feel free to ask.
