    I got my black hard case/screen protector/car charger today (seller: http://myworld.ebay.com/monsteraccessory/)

    the case fits well, but probably won't be a savior in the case of a big fall, like everyone is saying. the protector fits well and is easy to install. this was the first one I've ever put on. outside of a bubble, it's pretty hidden and doesn't affect the swipability.

    Chips in the phone's paint? Due to the case? Where?

    mrvirginia, what is the case you are talking about for 6$ which protects the lens?

    Thanks Texasboy...is there a cutout for the volume rocker and power button?

    No prob.no they are not covered.just cut outs for the mic and ports. IMO it makes it easier to push the buttons but you know how that goes some people like it some dont.

    Last q- you posted two linkes- one for silicone one and the other for a hard case. I like hard cases better but I would like to get the lens protected so is the one you posted- protecting the lens?

    so i ordered a smoke argyle tpu case and another thin hard case but in clear. can't wait for them to get here.

    no, not quite. it's just too close for me to honestly tell you yes. however, i just be sure not to set my phone on a rough surface, ie concrete, or slide it around. no scratches on the lens yet and i've had it like that for about a week. as long as you think about where you're putting your phone, you won't scratch the lens.

    man, i hope HTC learns from this slight design flaw when making the Evo2.

    Just got my thin case (the rigid one) off of ebay and I like it, the fit is much better than even the body glove one I got on launch day.

    Its pretty close but I think, in most circumstances, it can elevate the camera when just resting. The reason I say this is I have a glass desk and I could distinctly hear the click of the camera bezel touching the glass before, no clink now when the phone is laid flat. Be careful though, as you can still rock the phone top to bottom and that would allow the camera to touch.

    There is also just a subtle wrap around the front that elevates the screen less than a MM too, not much but it might be the difference. It wouldnt protect in a fall but its a trade off. I hated how I could hit the wrap around cases with my finger when sliding.

    i like the front elevation. allows me to flip the phone for speakerphone calls without worrying on rough surfaces.

    The red hard snap case from ebay is starting to leave red residue on the back of my EVO. Lines from where it is rubbing.......

    I've got a red one as well, but have yet to notice any residue. Can you post a pic? You might want to try a little denatured alcohol on a soft tissue to see if it can be removed.

    Yup, it left residue on the corners instantly the first time I put it on.

    Does anyone have pics of the neon green case? Just wanting to see what it looks like in person.

    Is this a hard or soft case?

    The one I have in my pictures is the hard case. I got it from the same seller linked to on the first post of this thread.

    Its happening on mine too. I also have the red one and its been on for a week. I can't wipe it off with a cloth and a little "spit shine" doesn't seem to take it off either. Its not terribly noticeable, but its there. Contemplating whether or not to take my case off until case-mates or incipios come out. I really do love the case, but its staining the battery cover :(

    Check your battery cover on the phone. I bet it doesnt sit flush on that side. I know a lot of people complained about that, and its probably why the case doesnt fit right. Just a suggestion.

    At the moment, my only camera is my EVO. The green looks good in person though and on the phone. Its definitely bright and neon green, but I like it.
