    I have two decisions for a HTC Hero case that I'll order soon(Ebay). I need some help deciding so you guys tell me which is better if you don't mind.

    The Cool Looking One That's Made of Aluminum(Dunno if it'll cause scratches, need advice on that): HTC Hero (GSM) Armor Case - Aircraft grade aluminum metal HTC Hero (GSM) case

    The not-so-cool looking one but it's leather and might not scratch(idk, will it?):HTC Hero (GSM) Designio Leather Sleeve - Hand-crafted from soft, premium grade leather HTC Hero (GSM) sleeve

    Just need some advice on it, maybe this could help out some people too. Thanks again in advance.

    If it were me I'd go for the aluminium one because it's full-cover and my work is a dirty environment. I use a TPU gel case for that reason. It's taken a few knocks and drops over the year and lived to tell the tale.

    Ive got one very siliar to that flip case but I had to remove the magnets from the clasp as it caused a problem with the sensors. So the screen wouldnt rotate or compass work properly.
    But they do protect the phone very well and are nice and thin in your pocket.

    Correct, Otterbox only cater for the CDMA device.

    i know my sprint hero is different than the GSM, but i just wanted to give another vote for the otter box...i have the "Impact" series. only had it a few hours and i love how durable it is and how well it protects my hero.
