    These days most handbags (and man-bags) have these magnetic clasps so I'm pretty sure if they affected phones it would have been reported as a problem before now.

    Here's some pics of my black resin gel FlexiCase. It's got a semi-transparent smoke colour with the descrete HTC dots pattern, and the HTC logo can be seen through it on the back face. My Desire is the black version and the case seems to 'absorb' the colour and looks really good on the phone.

    The case has a raised section that covers the power button and volume controls, preventing dust getting in the phone, and the front edge is raised slightly on all sides so it can be placed screen-down without the phone touching the surface. It's a really snug fit.

    I got it from eBay UK:

    Well went for a run there, using desire as a media player, bad choice of shorts resulted in phone falling from pocket. Case mate barely there saves the day, its covered in scratches and chips. Phone is almost perfect (one slight scratch on bottom of the phone near the micro usb slot) guess i was lucky it didnt land face down.

    CASES FTW :)

    Has anyone got any experience with Otterbox Commuter cases with other devices?

    Is it worth waiting for it, and probably paying an extra

    Yesterday I took delivery of a CaseMate Tough. I looked around for ages but couldn't find anything I really liked the look of. Then I stumbled upon the 'Tough'. Well, it is the best case there is for the Desire, bar none. Here's why:

    It has a black (and it is actually a solid black) rubber inner and a black outer made from a harder material. Great protection and great looking.

    The two fit inside each other perfectly to create the perfect case. It is grippy to hold (phone now actually feels better to hold than without the case.

    It does not get in the way of any part of the screen and importantly, does not cover the proximity sensor.

    It does not cover the bottom buttons.

    It is a nice tight fit - no baggy sides!

    It covers the volume buttons which is great because it stops me from changing the volume accidentally (which was very annoying).

    All the cut-outs are perfect - this is for the Desire, not a Nexus one - the shape of the hard outer even follows the contour of the chin on the Desire.

    Combined with a Martin Fields screen protector (also awesome) there is nothing else you will ever need.

    Got mine from Play.com for

    Cheers, that's exactly the sort of answer I was looking for :) There isn't much in it for me in terms of looks, so I might well continue to wait for the Otterbox.

    The Casemate Tough I have is very good quality. Nice materials, nice fit, nice finish.

    I am an engineer and refuse to buy rubbish. If the Casemate was poor it would have gone straight back.

    Official HTC Leather Pouch just arrived :) looks and feels great.

    I thought that Barely There case was a slim rubber one. Not so interested in it now. The tough one does look tough but pretty big!

    Think i'll go with the pouch for now and hope I don't drop it.

    My son has an iphone which snaps together front to back and this has a built in screen protector. Can anyone recommend a case with a built in screen protector not one you stick on the screen mine always comes off with the heat.
