    Hey all,

    My G2 is coming in Wednesday and I would like to get a nice case for it. I don't want the flip cover case, just a regular case such as an otterbox or Speck. What would you reccomend?

    Also, is it true the Verizon G2 has problems with getting too hot?

    Thanks!

    Too hot? Haven't had any heat problems at all.

    Haven't seen hot issues and i ran quite a few benchmarks for people asking. It got warm at worst.

    There aren't many good cases right now. Incipio has some in the works. Maybe keep an eye for that.

    Man, no cases eh? :/ There's gotta be something out there.

    SPIGEN SGP G2 Case Slim Armor | SPIGEN SGP

    This looks great. I don't think this would work with a verizon G2 though.

    I hate the fact verizon changed up the design, now it makes it more difficult to find a case.

    Maybe the cases will end up working with the verizon variant as well?

    None of these are for the verizon variant. Why would verizon do this?

    To lock you into the ones they sell? Just guessing.

    I got this case if eBay but it hasnt come in yet. It shows it on a Verizon model but not sure how it will fit. I have had a s line style case on my last 2 phones and they have been great. Not a mark on any of the phones and is not slippery. I hope it fits correctly.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I dont think the verizon version needs the little hole cut out above the flash. Or does it?

    It doesn't, but it won't hurt anything to have it.

    I have the Amzer dual layer, which is basically an Otterbox Commuter knock off. It seems to be made for all versions of the G2. It has space cutout for a mic on either the top, or on the back above the flash. It also has the cutouts for bother speaker/mic grills on the bottom of the international/AT&T version, which aren't perfect for the Verizon version, but works fine. The IR and headphone jack cutouts are in the right spot and everything works.

    Amazon.com: Amzer AMZ96176 Amzer Double Layer Hybrid Case Cover with Kickstand for LG G2 D802 - Skin - Retail Packaging - Black/ Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    There are a lot of cases that look like they would work just fine for the verizon version, just gotta look.
    Amazon.com: see all results

    Damn. While I do want a case that offers more protection than the Quick Window case, that Amzer case is fugly.

    Yeah, it's pretty bad. There are about 8 different brands selling this same case, so it's just some bottom basement china offering. When I ordered it, it was only $7 and I needed something to protect the phone on launch day. I have since ordered a Ballistic and Body Glove case, so we'll see what they look like.

    I started a reference thread with all the half decent cases available over at XDA, so I'll probably do that here since now all I need to do is copy/paste it.
