    First of all let me point out this is not a rubber case its some kind of flexible smooth to the touch plastic. It comes in a bunch of colors this one is clear. The price is about $10, $15 including shipping. If you like going naked this case is about as close as it comes to that feeling. It adds very little bulk to the handset but still gives pretty good overall coverage and padding in a drop. The camera lens might still get a ding in it with this case because its very thin and barely covers it. This case is not at all sticky like the silicone cases so your phone will not stick in your pockets like the rubber ones tend to do. This is almost like the IPhone bumper case only this ones covers the back also.

    It's the same as the exterior. He described it pretty well I think. It's a harder flexible plastic, but it's not too soft to the point of a gel. Very good feel though. The smoked version on eBay goes for $8 shipped.

    There some pics in another thread I believe. It covers everything very well. The power button and volume rocker are covered. On the front, it comes up enough to where if you put the phone screen down, it does not touch the surface.

    [​IMG]http://cgi.ebay.com/SMOKED-Argyle-Soft-TPU-Gel-Case-HTC-EVO-4G-Accessory-/130403450261?cmd=ViewItem&pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item1e5ca6bd95

    Given that the case is partially transparent, the black of the Evo helps give it an even darker Smoke look. Which means if you're looking at it from far away, it might seem all black (dark grey), then as you come closer, you can start to see the argyle pattern.

    Another view as requested. $8 is a bargain, I just ordered another in smoke.

    It does but like most of the cases on the market it could still get dinged because of that larger hole.

    I like the argyle, but not the clear parts.

    I have this same exact case, and I really like it. Makes the EVO look abit more elegant and I like the feel of it in my hands.

    The button functions on the phone are much easy to use with this case on. I don't have a problem finding the power button anymore, nor having to position my finger to press down. The case has raised indentations at the locations of the power switch, up and down volume buttons. A+

    Does it overlap the bottom part of the glass? You know, to press it down (or keep it from lifing) if you have screen seperation problems? (or to prevent it)

    Then the smoke color would be best for you. It blends nicely with the phone.

    Is the case thick enough where the camera doesn't touch when on its back? I think this is what you were getting at in the original post but I just want to make sure before I order one.
