    Anyone had both and can tell me the difference is size. I bought the verizon case at launch, but have had good experience with Seidio cases in the past. Want as less bulk as possible.

    I just received the Seidio case, and like it a lot. I also have the Otterbox defender, which is huge, but I believe protects the phone better than the Seidio. I'm probably going to switch between the two. I like the look of the Seidio case, as it shows the complete front of the phone, which looks great, especially because the phone has no Verizon branding on the glass. I also have the Verizon Incipo (sp?) case, which is ok, but the Seidio case is much sleeker and smaller as well.

    The nice thing about the Seidio, is that it fits the horizontal belt holster that I have for the HTC Titan.

    How easy or hard is it to remove the Seidio case to switch batteries? Thanks in advance.

    Not too hard, but I have the feeling that after repeated removal, the clips on the Seidio case may begin to weaken. I have the extended battery in mine, and it is a pretty tight fit, even with some of the felt on the back of the case removed. I'm also not thrilled that the case does not have any clip mechanism at the bottom, on either side of the micro usb port. This, imho, is the weakest part of the assembly.

    After using it all day, I've taken it off and put on the Otterbox Defender again. Even though it is a tank of a case, the phone just "feels" better in my hand with the Otterbox.

    I'll probably just keep the Seidio case for times when I don't want the bulk of the Otterbox.

    i can't stand putting cell phones in my pockets, especially one this big :eek:

    the verizon case/belt holster works great.
