Both my girl and i have the G1, I have the bronze and she has the black. We both got the transparent shell at the tmo store. It fits well, is in three pieces, and is formed well around the buttons. The shell is nice but the bottom piece slides off easily. I got a cheap shell that is glossy black, looks cool, is a bit slimmer than the transparent one, but the buttons are harder to hit (camera button) (menu) I like it but will be on the search for a new one. Just thought id share my findings so far.
