    I just picked up my Inc. on Thursday and haven't been able to put it down since (which I think is the conspiracy behind the poor battery life problem for me:)). Definitely suggest checking out the tips and tricks thread, great help for me.

    Anyway, I am looking to get a case for the phone. I like the case to be as THIN and streamlined as possible. I've tried the VZW black (glossy type) and hate the Red/Black gradient case. I really like the standard, black rubber ones made for iPhone and Blackberry's, although they do stretch over time and become loose. Also considering maybe going to Steinheil body armour instead to keep thin.

    Anyone have suggestions for best thin, rubber case? Seido?*


    *I know they may not be out yet, but looking ahead..

    Maybe it's just me.. but it still seemed to be sort of thick for my taste. I'm probably being a little picky and should just put on a "shield" if being super thin is my issue.

    Anyone had a Siedo in the past? How do they compare, in thickness, to the VZW Silicone

    I love seidio products. I am using the silicon case from VZW for now but i assure you when they get their cases out for the device they will be awesome. I have used their hard cases on both my storm 1 and 2 and love them

    I think you'd be happy with Seideo when it comes out. The reviews always say how they are so thin and add very little bulk. This is what I'm waiting for.

    If any of you guys used Otterbox, how does that thickness compare to these cases? I currently have the Verizon silicone one but might switch to Seido or Otterbox, depending on thickness and if I can get my hands on it to actually feel/test it.

    The case from Verizon is awesome. Adds minimal bulk.

    i had planned on getting a seidio case when they come out, but i really can't find any flaws with this verizon black silicone case. it's the perfect size and i feel like i have a much better grip on my phone with it.

    I had an OtterBox Commuter for my Eris....LOVE IT.

    I also keep checking on Incipio...they have a featherlite case that a friend has on their iPhone...would love to have that.

    how thick is it? I have the Verizon silicone and love the feel (doesn't add too much bulk).
     
  16. Let us know how that goes.

    I just got the red hard case from verizon. It works great. I have never used a case on my phone in my life, this being my first really expensive phone I figured I should probably get one. Turns out I love it! It doesn't really makebthe phone any bigger and it fits great!
