    I finally received my case so I will do a review on it.

    I am absolutely blown away by this case. The build quality is far better then what I thought. The rubberized edges are stiff (hard rubber). The TPU back is sturdy and feels great. It is not clear like I originally thought but it is about 80-85% transparent. The whole case feels durable and comfortable to hold. The rubberized sides contain a good grip. The cutouts for the 3.5mm headphone jack, microphones, speaker, and camera seem to be cut precisely.
    What I care about the most is the thickness of the case. This case is 1.1cm thick in total when it is applied to the phone. The case itself is around 1-1.5mm thick (estimated, it was tough to measure). It contains raised edges so that the phone may be placed upside down without having the screen touch the surface.
    Overall: I love this case, its build quality, how it feels and the overall design.
    I bought mine from [​IMG]here. It took 13 days (including weekends) for it to come. It would have been faster but I live on the east coast.

    Did you get it yet? This case looks the best and most simple, especially for the price. How does it look and feel on the phone?

    I don't like tpu cases unless they have cut outs for the buttons. The buttons are way to hard to press with tpu.

    Well I got my case from daydeal today, I really like it, nice and solid. I also got a metal bumper case that I ordered some time ago as well. It came from China so it took some time. I know it's a bit off topic but this card came with the bumper, hilarious engrish. All kidding aside, I am definately giving them 5 stars.

    Hard clear cover over the camera? I'm not sure I like that.

    Sorry for the dust but here are some quick pics:

    Has cut out for noise canceling mic:

    Fit is spot on, no baggy / loose spot anywhere. Side have grippy bumps. Doesn't add much to the thickness but allows me to grab my phone out of my pocket much faster since even the frosted back is a bit grippier than the phone's back.

    Highly recommend it!

    I've ordered 3 different cases, 2 pure white and 1 white with a gray/metal insert in the middle. All about $10-$12 each, can't wait to get them and see how they fit. Most of all, I think white case with blue phone is going to look NICE. As seen here:

    Use "freeshipping" promo code for obvious discount. ;)

    I've praised Seidio before, but here's a pic to truly show is slimness. The case thickness is actually what you see at the corner of this pic, based on the part that is against the ruler, I think it's fair to say that this is about a 1 mm case.

    There is felt inside this also. Also, the Seidio website doesn't do it justice, but the real beauty is the holster in which phone snaps into an out off with one hand, rather than slide in operation of the Verizon type and even the holster allows access to all the ports. And trust me, the 2 halves will not accidentally come apart

    This is from my rezound. Those are 1 mm lines. I could post pics when it arrives, but the video really does show it best

    I purchased the Cruzerlite...I liked the android "themed" cases they were using. They use TPU but they cut out the holes for the volume and other button rockers...cheap too...should be nice..still waiting on my phone to apply it too though!!

    It does come with a shield for the front also correct? Or is that just a screen protector that I'm looking at.

    Here is a review of a case that looks just like yours. The brand is Fosmon and this is the one I may get. Pebble blue may show through real well. :D
