    What is the best case for HTC Incredible? Search around here didn't find this specific question.

    There are 6 on the verizonwireless web store.

    Looking for something slim , light, non-bulky. I was debating between the Speck and Body glove as they are the two most expensive, but after seeing another thread on here, it describes the Body glove as bulky, but they all may be bulky?

    I loved my Body Glove until I took it off to clean the dust and found that it scratched the sides of my phone. I dropped it several times and it protected it just fine.

    Yea I believe the Body Glove is made of hard plastic with a 'glove' outer shell. The speck is rubber / silicone.

    Chkultr: And I never knew about that one, interesting.

    The high gloss case that VZW sells is like $12 (if ur eligible for 25% off accessories) It fits snug, most people can't tell that its on, it doesn't scratch your phone, and protects the protruding camera lens.

    I'm hoping and praying that Otterbox gets the Defender case out for the incredible soon. Its suppost to be through design and testing, they're just having some supplier issues right now. They have pics of it up on their website and a price listed. I have a defender case on my ipod touch and its awesome. It adds a good bit of bulk but the ipod is so thin its hard to hold so the defender case makes it a ton easier. And honestly for me, some added thinkness for the incredible wouldn't be too bad either.

    I use Seidio rugged combo. Innocase goes on, nice and slim. Then the rubber cover over that, then plastic outer shell. If you want slim you can use the Innocase without the outer case. On a day you need extra protection just put the outer case on!

    Second this. I have it in black, and it's the best case I've seen. I was amazed that Verizon themselves had such good accessories for this phone, saved me time from searching around online.

    I like the Speck case I picked up at VZW so far. I just wish they had the other color options available to us like they do the iPhone users.

    Seidio active is pretty good it protects the phone very well and its actually not too much bigger than the innocase 2. I had the innocase 2 but it scratched the bezel of my phone after a while..and the phone still felt fragile. I have the active case nowand I'm not afraid to drop it anymore lol.

    I had the speck case but had to return it, found the button covers for the volume and power to be a pain to have to push so i returned it.

    I have a seidio innocase active. It doesnt add much bulk and doesn't scratch the phone. The inner part is silicone I believe. The outer is a hard plastic. Dropped my phone a few times and its protected just fine. Here is the link if your interested. seidioonline.com

    Be careful with innocase. Mine worked great for a while, but then the plastic began to peel off, and it scratched the sides of my phone. they replaced it, but the same thing happened again

    The plastic doesn't touch the phone on the active case. It just touches the silicone. The plastic goes around the silicone.

    Another endorsement for the Case-Mate Tough Case here, same 2 piece case concept as the Seidio Innocase Active, but seems to have better/tighter tolerance than Seidios'. Case-mate doesn't have the color options, but the quality is there.

    Other than the texture up front, that Case Mate looks EXACTLY the same as my Seidio Active.

    body glove by far dropped many times slightly it also has a anti slip rubber coating so its nearly impossible for it to fall out of your shorts or pockets you cant even slide it across a smooth table. Also when I take it off for cleaning not one scratch on my phone. I also use a vzw screen protectors and have had great luck with them.

    The first body glove broke when I dropped it. The inside tabs that snap the two sides together are prone to snapping off when the phone is dropped. I thought it was a fluke so I purchased a second one and the same thing happened. It protected the phone just fine, but those were expensive drops, otherwise. Too bad, because I really like the look and feel of the case.

    Well, it looks like Case-mate no longer makes cases for the Dinc, and I found only one seller from the UK with them on Ebay. (price with shipping equals roughly what the original case cost, so I am seeing if they ship international)

    On the other hand, Seidio still sells the Active for the Dinc in blue, purple, red, and white.

    Otterbox still has both commuter and defender versions available as well.
