    I love this case.. I really like the black and white and the black rubberized part
    gives the phone a good grip without feeling like it's sticks in my pocket.

    Thanks for all your reviews.

    That case does look good with the white phone. Quite the coincidence that maybe a half hour before I read your post I put the grey/black one that I have onto my phone for the first time since I wrote the review. I like it. It feels good in my hand and it's not too slippery or sticky. I'm glad people are finding my reviews useful. I don't know when/if there will be anymore though. My wife has pretty much banned me from buying anymore. Not because of the money, they're pretty inexpensive. But mostly out of principle I guess. And something to do with children in Africa not having cases for their phones because I'm hogging all of them...:rolleyes:

    I'm like you! I want to buy ALL these cases because I just can't decide which one I like. They all look really cool or they're convenient but I need to see how they feel. But then I feel guilty afterwards because I know I'll never use it again if it's crappy. So I'm trying very hard not to buy too many. Maybe 1 every couple months....

    Can you please tell me how much of that goes onto the front of the phone? I really like the way it looks, but I'm having a problem finding a case that doesn't screw up my screen protector (it's one of those static ones - no stickiness and the edges come up if anything touches them) TIA

    Samsung OEM 2pk cases

    Screen protector: SGP/Steinheil Curved Crystal

    More thoughts:
    - the grip on each case is 2 different heights.
    - both cases have 2 holes for a strap
    - this case is certainly not designed to protect the phone from a fall. Just something to the phone more grip.

    On my third dual layer case now.

    The newest: Trident Aegis, as good as the commuter I had but the buttons are very nice to press.

    Very nice protection and fit. A great case for someone looking for a commuter case but without the slippery effect and hard buttons.

    So that makes Ballistic sg maxx, Otterbox commuter, and now the aegis.

    Why do you think it's not metal. I've seen a similar case, and it is metal, and most likely it's aluminum. Actually I would prefer it's plastic. Although metal looks great, it is slippery and easy to be scratched.

    brushed aluminum is ridiculously difficult to scratch. the side panels on my full tower desktop are brushed aluminum and theyre the only things on it that i havent been able to scratch (i take it to my friends houses sometimes)

    I found this case on eBay. The color is not as intense as in the photo. Since it's somewhat translucent the blue edge really lights up around the blue phone. I like the way it compliments the blue phone color. It's very effective protection and is easy to get on and off for swapping the battery when needed. Not too bulky. Can't beat the price.

    I have seen the video of the Aegis case, and I am interested in it. My question to any of those who have it is: Is there one corner that is not protected by the hard poly-carbonate shell? It seems like the soft gel cover covers everything, but the hard shell covers only 3 corners.

    So I was riding my mountain bike this past Friday and did an endo. I landed on my backpack/hydropack where my phone is always stored so I can use the MyTracks app to record my session. It was a great ride until we took a "new" way down the mountain and at about 15 - 20 MPH I found out there was a large washout straight through the trail. It was about 3 feet wide and about 2 deep. Since it was near dark I only saw it at the very last minute. I managed to get across most of it but came off my bike. "HARD". I literally landed on my pack with the phone unprotected other than a thin bit of nylopn fabric and my Acase Superleggra Dula layer case. The screen always is placed so it faces my back (just for occasions like this).

    All this to say I still LOVE this case. Not a scratch on the case or the phone! I think this is a testament to Both build qualities.

    When I say I hit hard I mean I cracked my helmet in 3-4 places. Yet the phone is in perfect condition. I should take pics of the helmet and post. Although I do not think the phone took the exact same hit as my helmet.

    +10 to Acase SuperLeggra Case and +100 to my Helmet!

    Glad you're ok and that your phone is ok!

    And looks like you need a new helmet as it did is job well.

    On a side note, most people don't realize the importance of a well during helmet and the need to replace helmets probably every 2 years. The hairline cracks usually go unnoticed and the foam gets warped and stuff. $40 to protect your head is totally worth it.

    I think I would like a superlagerra maybe if the inner silicone came in different colors. Good stuff for them, though!
