    Any recommendations on a good case for the LG Motion? I'm retiring my Optimus M today and getting the Motion, but wanted to protect it. I've had a Otter Box knockoff case on it for the two years I've had it, which has protected it very well. I wouldn't mind something similar, or maybe a little slimmer, but still decent protection. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    I just bought this phone the other day and it came with a case. Its rubber inside and has a plastic thing that goes around it. This case sucks, stretched out and now the phone slides around in it. i just ordered a hard case off of eBay i believe its called empire. I had this case on my connect real tough, paid like 6 bucks for case screen protector and charger

    Whichever one you buy, do not get this one:

    Amazon.com: For LG Motion 4G/MS770 Hybrid Hard/Rubber Case Black/Black With Stand: Everything Else

    It's designed for the Motion 4G but doesn't fit it at all.

    I actually like the one that pl4life52 mentioned. I had it on my phone but then gave it to a friend. I currently have the same one that enigmadroid linked to above. I really like the feel of it, but it doesn't give the phone a very symmetrical look because of the openings for the buttons and jacks.

    lol..i actually bought this one and was going to recommend it, it fits nicely with mine and it works excellently....

    i got the other hybrid one, the one that is mesh plastic on top of the rubber...and the plastic part broke within 3 days...whereas this one is sturdy and works excellently...

    you need to contact the seller and request a return/refund...

    but I didn't buy off Amazon.. I got mine, from Ebay

    Could you provide a link to the listing of the one you bought? I would like to have that case as well. I think it's a good design. I was disappointed when the one I got didn't fit.

    it's literally the exact same link :p



    FYI for Amazon buyers

    i sell stuff on Amazon for work, and let me tell you....Amazon supports the buyer almost every single time there is a dispute, for me as a seller it is frustrating, but for you guys as Buyers....I highly recommend that if you're not pleased with your item, to request a return/refund/exchange...if the seller does not come through then you can still get a refund from Amazon with their A-to-Z guarantee...just to let you know

    Using the same setup as I have on my previous two LG/Metro phones- Metro gel case (they're well-made and hold up very nicely), Zagg screen protector and Blackberry belt holster. All 3 of my LG phones (see left) are similar in size and fit perfectly in the BB holster. Not sure what brand the holster actually is, I don't think it's OEM BB but I bought it at Best Buy two years ago when I got the Optimus M. After two years of daily service it's still like new.
    As Dave said the Metro screen protector is horrible, it's as bad as the gel case is good. I currently have a universal-fit Zagg on the Motion and as soon as they come out with the custom-fit one I'll be replacing it with that. It is on their site as "coming soon".
    I've learned from experience that the cheap cases on Ebay and Amazon are hit-or-miss, mostly miss. You get what you pay for, and given the possible consequences of having the phone fall out of a cheap case when it breaks I won't go near them any more.

    The last one is crap, got one off amazon and it's huge like really fat and the outer skin is loose and the tabs pop out of the holes in the plastic and it drove me crazy I don't use it.

    The other ones look cool the one before the last is probably the one I would pick but idk.

    I have been bugging cruzerlite to make a case for us they make nice ones they said they were planning on making one so ill wait a little bit.

    Sent from my typewriter.

    nice, was just gonna ask if anyone new of some cases that had stands.

    im looking for one where the stand works in portrait and landscape and also where i can use the kickstand and the charger at the same time. the one i bought for the connect had the stand fold out to where you had to lay the phone on the side where the charger port was making it inaccessible while using the stand.

    I have a mybat case with a hard two-sided inner shield and a rubber outer shield, that allows it sit in landscape and portrait mode while charging. The only problem with it and all of the other cases for this phone is that all of my chargers wont fit as its upside down.

    Im using a soft rubber case that they sold me at the store that i was able to cut out the hole to fit them.

    I also have that case in black/red and a spare in black/blue.

    Have a spare battery so have removed case many times-no problems and seems to give a lot

    of protection-the top of the case forms a lip higher than the glass and excellent corner protection also-very nice fit over the phone-feels good.
