    I currently have the leather snap on case that VZW sells, the little plastic clips that snap it on break way too easily so I am looking at higher quality cases and especially the Seidio and Otterbox cases. The Otterbox case looks higher quality IMO and also probably more protective. I just want to be sure that the plastic clips will not break and let the case fall off every 5 minutes. Any opinions would be helpful.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either one. They are both made by reputable companies.

    I'm going to get the Seidio just because They have a Media dock and car mount that work with the case but if I did not want these options I would be torn.

    I've had the clear Seidio case for a couple months and have no complaints. The thing I really like is it adds very little bulk to the phone but also protects it.

    Never owned the Seidio, so I can't speak to that one, however...


    I got my Otterbox Wednesday evening and have had it on my phone for about a day and a half now...

    Honestly, this is the best cell phone case I've ever seen, or owned for that matter. The fit and finish are perfect, very snug and very secure. The rounded corners and the high quality materials used in construction give the phone a great 'finished' feel, very solid. The power/sleep, volume and camera buttons all line up perfectly, and as another poster mentioned make them much easier to use, especially the power/sleep. The covered ports are lined up dead on as well and do a great job of keeping dust and dirt out. The slider works perfectly and is not hindered at all by the case... It slides open smooth and clicks back into place perfectly. Both the top and bottom pieces fit snug and secure; no issues at all with either feeling loose or coming off. Both feel like an integrated part of the phone.

    So, essentially, I love this case... highly recommended! :D

    I purchased my Seidio case (burgandy) yesterday. 20% off my entire purchase. I got the belt clip too. I cant wait to have it...
     
  8. I've used Seidio in the past and absolutely loved them. I'm going Otterbox this round though.

    My brother inlaw suggested the Otterbox also. he has one and loves it.

    I jsut couldn't pass up the discount + free S/H Seidio had yesterday.

    I love my otterbox.....the silicone plugs and otterbox quality sealed the deal for me...the back is super easy to take off for media dock or for use on car dock...wish they would make a holster for it

    Hold up...Seidio is awesome. I just got the red one today for my droid and it is without a doubt the best phone case i've ever had. I got it for 24.99 on amazon and i absolutley love it. I would go Seidio. You have the option to get the accessories that will work with the case on as well.

    I echo the Otterbox sentiments here. I also like that the button's are "raised" and protected and there is little if any bulk over the Seidio.

    I also have the Seidio and love it as well. The main difference is the "recessed buttons" in the case and not button covering. The Otterbox also covers the "lip" of the bottom of the Droid whereas the Innocase does not. I have the dock for the Innocase and with the button coverings on the Otterbox, it doesn't work to well on the dock.

    You can't go wrong with either one, but right now I would give the Otterbox the edge because of the "buttons".

    I do think it's worth mentioning that I have a replacement case coming from Otterbox because the upper edges of the back portion are not "securely in place". Otterbox did not hesitate for a 2nd when I sent a customer service inquiry and they shipped me a replacement the same day. Hope to have it by Monday and will update post.

    Seidio and Otterbox have great customer service, so again, 2 good reputable companies with great products.

    Seidio case is sold at $23.00 on Amazon. I own one, and it's probably the least bulky case out there with still solid construction. It feels really nice to hold in your hand too.

    I just got my Seidio case/holster from work and I love it. I work in a Verizon store and have been trying on every type we get in and the Seido is by far the slimmest and the best feel. I do agree that you will probably get better protection out of the Otterbox but the fact that my case is so thin and I can get a multimedia dock that works with the case still on seals the deal for me.

    How is the screen protector on the otterbox? Is the reponsiveness noticably different to a naked screen? Is it easy to install? No bubbles? Is it removeable?

    Thanks

    How bulky are these cases, compared to a bare Droid?
    Which one is easier to remove if I want to mount the phone in the stock car dock?

    I don't use the included screen protectors. I use bestskinsever. Much easier to install than invisishield and much less expensive. However, I did use one for a while until the bestskin arrived and they are okay, just not the solid protector I was looking for.

    I think I have decided on the Otterbox but am just wondering if anyone knows of any coupon codes for it or the Seidio. I definitely want a case, I am noticing scratches on my phone and want some drop protection

    I ordered my Seidio case last thursday. Shipped today.

    On another note, how good are the Stealth Guard full body protectors? I am thinking about getting them for underneath the case...

    I just got my Otterbox case today. Never owned a Sedio case so I can't compare the two but this Otterbox case is sweet. Love the way the buttons are now raised and the ports are covered. I had the Body Glove case and the top hinges broke leaving the case useless. I went for 2 weeks with a "naked" Droid and didn't really want go back to a cover but the protection is more important. Kind of like why I use condom....

    I like the Otterbox case. Just like everyone says, I like the fact that all the buttons are now raised. It super convenient and a lot easier to press. I didn't notice too much added bulk or weight so that's a total plus.
