    Damn, guess I wasted money on the other case... didn't expect this one to be released so early.

    I'll probably hold off until the Rugged combo is available on Amazon for a cheaper price.

    Earlier today I ordered both of the Otterbox cases from their site. I've had awesome luck with Otterbox cases in the past for phones and iPods. They're pricey, but we'll worth it in my opinion.

    so i ended up getting the extended battery... and while it fits inside my diztronic TPU case.. its so snug that it presses in the volume buttons... so that ended up being a waste for me. Will wait to see if some extended battery cases come out or if anyone can recommend one that they got that fits

    Is this with the extended battery back? One person is saying in the Extended battery thread that the stock back fits with the extended batter in it. You could give that a try and see if it helps.

    Anyone ever used a Case Mate before? I am looking at the Tough Case...any thoughts?

    Don't feel bad. I don't have the extended battery and the Diztronic presses my volume buttons sometimes. :(

    Nillkin is a no go for the LTE.

    The incipio feather doesnt cover the top and bottom of the phone.

    Looks like diztronic, wish they had more color options.

    I already have both the Incipio hard case from Verizon and the Diztronic TPU case. I have to say, I like the Incipio better, but there is a small price differential.

    How is the rubber around the screen? Does it look like its going to trap dirt and wear a line around the screen? My seidio did that.

    He may have been doing it wrong, I've had an otterbox case on my phone with the extended battery all day with absolutely no problems or issues.

    Looking at the Seidio Surface...is it just me or can you not see where the case snaps together? My fascinate Seidio case snaps at the half way point. I'm looking at their pic on their website:

    It's a rather good seal, but I can't attest to it's durability in that field just yet. I do think it'll attract a bit of a dust around the edges, but I've found all cases do that around the seal area.

    casemate barely there or incipio feather? what would you pick. looking to just keep phone slim but kinda protected. I never really use cases but thought i might be a good time to protect this precious phone

    I just order my Surface case from Seidio. Had one on my DINC and Tbolt very nice cases. If anyone is going to order from Seidio use promo code DEC2011 and get 15% off, drops the price to 25.46 with free shipping. :)

    I have one for my t-bolt and its great. not only does it look great, but it feels great too.

    i dont like rubber cases because it pulls out the lining of my pocket when i pull it out of the pocket. the case mate i have has plastic on the back and sides but rubber over the buttons.

    had it since i bought the phone and its been great. i plan on getting on with the nexus, but can't upgrade for a month :eek:

    Oh well, price on the phone will hopefully drop by then and i will use my savings for a new battery and case.

    As for screen protectors, I've used InvisiShield for years now. It's a tougher rubberized screen protector that looks and feels much better than the cheap plastic protectors. It'll be the best $15 you've ever spent. Also, InvisiShield offers a lifetime guarantee!

    I have the Diztronic case, here's the front and back. Seems to be pretty good so far. My screen protector covers the entire phone, and the edges of the case kind of are pushing up against the protector lifting it a little. I may sand/file them down just a wee bit.

    How much bulk does this add? I'm interested in a case, but really don't want to add any thickness like some other cases I have owned.

    the incipio feather is VERY nice on the iphone. ive never had the casemate equivalent but i think i may get it over the feather because it seems the coverage is slightly better.

    Bought a TPU "S-line" off of Amazon for a 7 bucks, looks great and adds just enough protection. Plus it has grips on the sides which comes in handy on a phone this size.

    +1 on the Case Mate Barely There case. Also have one on my Thunderbolt and barely adds any bulk to the phone. Bought one for my GNex, should be here in a few days.
