    Zagg screen protectors are sticky and over priced. If you use a slide keyboard you will dislike the Zagg. It even days on the package that it "improves grip". Not something you want on a slide keyboard.

    I recommend getting a 3 or 6 pack of genetics from eBay or Amazon for a few bucks. This let's you mess up once out twice putting it on, and leaves you spares, for 1/10 the cost of a Zagg.

    I got a Clarivue screen protector and it's quite good. It was #4 out of 10 in some screen protector review I found online.

    You pay ~$12 and you get 2 protector in 1 box. If you have friend or family with a One V it's a nice cheap protector.

    If you look at their youtube instruction video, you can't go wrong. The trick with a little roll of tape on your finger is the key to have a bubble/dust less install.

    Probably the two best cases out there right now are the Otterbox Commuter and the Trident Aegis Case for the One V. Both are similar in that they are hybrids - both hard and soft silicone protection, both with covered accessible ports, both come with screen protectors. I have the Otterbox. To me it is worth it to pay a little extra for a nice case, as these are the best protection money can buy.

    I also use a Skinomi screen protector. It is very smooth and reduces glare a bit, and feels like glass instead of plastic.

    Amazon.com: OtterBox 77-20718 Commuter Series Hybrid Case for HTC One V - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Amazon.com: Trident Case AG-ONEV-BK AEGIS Protective Case for HTC ONE V - 1 Pack - Carrying Case - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    I bought this case for the One V to recess the camera lens and to avoid scratches on the body. It's very minimal (what I like about it).

    Affinity case for HTC One V

    The Affinity case does't quite cover the 'chin'. I'd estimate a millimeter or 2 is exposed. I bought it mainly to recess the camera lens.

    I really wish the manufacturers would take note and embed the lens further in. This would do 2 things: protect the lens and also act somewhat as a lens hood to decrease flare in photos.

    i forgot to paste the link in my post above ^. i was referring to these screen protectors, i'm sorry.
    Amazon.com: HTC One V - FIVE (5) Premium Ultra Clear, Smooth Touch LCD Screen Protector Film (with Cleaning Cloth) [AccessoryOne Brand]: Cell Phones & Accessories

    as far as cases, i think i'm leaning towards tpu. this is the only one i found that is "simple" and "clean" - made by amzer.
    Amazon.com: Amzer AMZ93509 Amzer Soft Gel TPU Gloss Skin Fit Case Cover for HTC One V - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    does anyone else use a tpu case?

    got those ^ screen protectors from amazon. have nothing to compare them to, but they feel a little "sticky". also, like the reviews said, they're about 1mm-1.5mm short. great deal though

    The otter box for this phone is amazing. I've dropped my phone thousands of times and its all working great screen still pristine. It even includes the screen protector. For the price, get it!

    How is the belt clip on the otter box? I can't seem to find any good pictures of it.

    AFAIK there is not one. With this case I prefer my pocket anyways. The iPhone one works great so I know this one will too

    The OtterBox Commuters don't come with a belt clip. The OB Defenders do, but there isn't a Defender model for this phone.

    Trident aegis case doesn't. I currently use the black and blue one and it comes with a free screen protector. And for being a free screen protector, its actually pretty good.

    I am a big fan of TPU cases. I've got this one on the way.

    Amazon.com: Jkase Premium Quality HTC One V / T320e HTC Primo Streamline TPU Case Cover - Retail Packaging-Clear: Cell Phones & Accessories

    It is transparent so I would think one can still see the LED.

    I've go these screen protectors on the way.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007V64I8Q/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

    5 for less than $5 including shipping. Pretty good reviews. Cheap. Plus I am not that picky about my screen protector so I do not like to spend much on it.
