    I put one on my phone in the store. I didn't like the look or the feel of it, so I got the hard red case that snaps together over the phone. To each their own..

    I got the black one. Feels okay, but I like my phone's thinness and hate to make it thicker. On top of that, it kind of messed with my Zagg screen protector, so now I only use it if I think I might be in a position or place that I'd be more likely to drop my DI.

    I have had both and returned the red case and like the silicone one.
    Do a search, there a few threads around about cases, etc.

    I have this case in black and LOVE it! Yes, it can mess up your ZAGG Invisible Shield if you're not careful, but I like the feel and the added protection.

    I trimmed the corners of mine slightly to make it clear the corners of my zagg better, but i really like it, actually do not like the phone without it anymore. Plus, most people don't know its a case, they think its how the phone is supposed to be.

    I have the black cover and think it's perfect. Coming from BB I was concerned about it being a silicone cover that didn't cover much. It couldn't be more different. It protects all sides of the corners, has a seamless fit, and makes the phone seem more substantial. I have big hands so it helps make it more comfortable to use.

    Unlike most, I like the Verizon screen protectors, so I have no problem with the case interfering.

    I have this one in black and I like it. Only downside I see is that it is a tad hard to get on and off but I don't need to remove it enough for that to be an issue. On the upside it's doesn't attract pocket lint like the BB silicone covers did!

    The other plus is that you have no trouble finding the buttons in the top and sides with the silicone case.

    I got the red one last week cause they didnt have the black one(which I originally wanted) and the red kinda grew on me . I ended up going back this week and getting the black one.

    I personally like it. Feels good in my hand, and it looks good.

    I have no issues with the zagg and the silicone skin
    The problem is unless it's on perfect, the skin will peel back at the corners.
    After I put the skin on for 24 hrs (I actually waited this time) I then put the case on so the corners would go over top and come down on the device.

    Basically stretched it a bit to get it over. If you push the case on, it will push the shield up.

    Tony,

    I just wanted to clarify that you have the flexible black high gloss silicon case that is seen in verizon stores. Cause when i watched your most recent video on the zagg screen protector the phone looked great with the cover that you had on it. It looked dark, sleek, and strong. When i read below the video you typed in that it was a "Hard Black High Gloss silicon" case. So i wasnt sure if this was different then the flexible silicon cases that i saw in the store and people have put videos up on. If there was a "hard" case that was high gloss i am interested in finding out about that.

    thanks

    I am just curious if any of these covers will prevent dust from entering underneath screen?

    It seems like every phone Ive ever had, has gotten dust under the screen and it drives me nuts

    The Zagg covers seem to just go over screen but seem to offer no protection to the sides. The VZW covers snap on but it seems the edges would just be a dust collector and make the problem even worse.

    I keep my phone in my pocket a lot and do not want to see the beautiful AMOLED screen get ruined by dust

    Anyone know anything about this?

    Theres always someone talking about dust under the screen. I have the glossy black silicone case and I love it. Only two comments: 1. I had to enlarge the hole around the audio jack because the case was preventing my earbuds from plugging in all the way. 2. Because the edges of the case are raised dust tend to accumulate there. Easily cleaned off though.

    The silicone case fits so tight that as you work to get it on my DI it disturbs the corners of my Zagg screen protector. And I was trying to be VERY careful.

    I have the "shine" one. I don't like the look of the pretend carbon fiber on the back but it makes up for it in easy in and out of the pocket slides.

    The silicone case provides such a tight fit that it tends to push the edges of the Zagg screen protector, making it peel away from the screen. I had a Zagg for three days before putting on the case and it still made it peel up in the corner. Some say if you install the Zagg properly it won't happen, but that's BS. It is more about the slight imprefections of the silicone case than the installation of the Zagg (unless you're a moron who can't get it on straight).

    The bottom line is that the two don't play well together. Me, I got my Zagg replaced and sold it on eBay and kept the silicone case. It provides better overall protection for the device and the Zagg is so tacky it feels like you spilled cola on your screen. I like the smooth glass feel better.

    But to each their own.

    I bought mine the other day but wasn't home when it shipped today. Should have it tomorrow

    Has anyone cut the volume/power bumpers out? I don't really like the bumpers and want to cut either the entire thing out or just an outline around it.

    I like these over the buttons. I usually don't but it still provides the keys with plenty of play to click properly.

    It looks like they'd be easily pressed on accident though, which is why I rather get rid of them all together. (or even being pressed constantly due to the pressure)

    Just got one today from a VZW kiosk. Was debating whether to get a case at all as after a month I don't yet have scratch 1 on my Inc, but accidents will happen. The fit is excellent, and on first glance you don't realize it's a case at all. It adds a little bulk but I REALLY like that it protects the camera lens that was just jutting out there before. Phone sits flat on surfaces now and I feel like it would take a serious drop to damage it. Quality case.

    It's a great skin. Fits perfectly and all buttons are very responsive. I highly recommend it!

    I too have the silicone black case and it has been great. It almost even enhances the functionality of the buttons as the hold button on top and volume rockers have a little bit more of a click to them which I like. Couple it with a screen protector and the only uncovered parts are the 4 touch buttons and the optical wheel. but what do you expect.
