    Hey guys I'm just wondering what you think is the best silicone case to buy. I remember reading a thread here (I can't find it now, of course) in which someone was talking about some new silicone case that they really were satisfied with. I remember them specifically saying that it wasn't collecting a lot of lint or dust.

    Or am I just crazy and are most silicone cases the same?

    I really like the feel and fit of the Sprint silicone case. It even says HTC on it. It does collect lint though but I think its a great case.

    I agree I think Sprints silicone is the best one out there so far. The feel, texture, thickness & light weight are on the spot....it just could have been more tighter from the top but it's all good. It does cover the volume & the power button fully but easy identifiable.

    I had the Sprints black & chrome hard case & that was horrible it broke in 6 days ...poor designing the volume control side plastic had no support.

    +1 for the sprint silicone case. nice feel. pretty thin...doesnt add much bulk at all.

    the one from the sprint store isn't a tight fit on the sides. holding on to it until the ones i ordered off of ebay come in. and those will be temporary until Incipio, Otterbox, and Case Mate come out with theirs. that amzer one looks thick.

    It fits perfectly on the phone and around all of the necessary cut outs. It's perfectly molded to the EVO. It has slightly raised portions over the volume and power buttons. I can't really describe what it looks like, but you can see in the picture below. I don't like how it sticks out on the corners or the pebbled texture. YMMV

    Huh well the Amzer looks like a good choice. The bulge on the corners makes it a preetty big beast of a phone though, ehh?

    Fits great, and it's really thin. It doesn't MAKE it bigger, but it does LOOK bigger. LOL

    The argyle cases were supposed to be shipped YESTERDAY. Now I can't even find them on the site. I had mine ordered literally a month ago. This is frustrating.

    Dude, I know how you feel, I was shocked as hell to find out that my skin had been delivered on Friday. I stopped checking because I figured they were total BS and I was NEVER going to get it. Keep the faith............and check your mailbox! ;)

    Sprint silicone case for me, its great. Only complaint is the sides aren't as tight as id like; but its not bad.
