    Just got in the exact armor case and seems the exact same as ionic minus the branding. It does have the newer pattern on the back of the ionic guardian pictures. Ordered yesterday, received today. Paid 3.95.Attachment 53785Attachment 53786

    That's a knockoff. I can tell due to the lack of a logo.

    But seriously I have both and it's exactly the same aside from the logo.

    who's tried the knockoff bumper? im considering trying that + a screen protector for the back

    edit: now considering knockoff bumper + back screen protector, diztronic case, or cruzerlite case. i want to make sure which of these options allow for easy button pressing, and allow for large headphone jacks to be used (i.e. aux cable). all ~$12

    I hope you are joking. If you were being sarcastic I apologize. They are the same, probably from the same source. The ionic logo is just silk screened or stuck on there. Comes off with nail polish remover. One guy who bought in bulk is just willing to take a smaller profit margin than another. And one invested in colors.

    Like saying all the S-Line cases are knock offs of the i-Blason S-Line case. All the same.

    I didn't think the poetic bumper was shipping til Dec 30th. It is being sold by the same seller as the Exact Armor case BTW. Any one got a ship notification on the bumper?

    I haven't tried headphones yet as i usually use a bluetooth pair but the power button is perfect. Covered by silicon but with a cut out of the hard plastic surrounding it. Feels very good.

    I was lucky enough to receive my phone yesterday along with my Nillikin case. I found the case to be very nice and over all a nice fit. It is a bit bare on the top and bottom but appears to cover what it needs. Only a good drop will tell the tale. What I did find was that it is a bit slippery. I may still check out a bumper but this certainly isn't a bad case.

    nah it didnt work out. the surrounding was too thick, so the power button was very recessed, which made it even more difficult to press. also, because i used a razor knife to cut it, some of the edges of the hole were quite sharp. so I definitely DONT recommend anyone cutting out the power and/or volume button on the tpu s line case, as it basically ruined mine.

    hope the wait time isn't too much longer for this I've always had Otterbox Defender cases on my phones but have noticed the rubber outer skin getting very loose over time.

    Here are some pics. Sorry, I didn't realize how nasty the phones were until I looked at the pictures. I suppose that is what happens when you let your 2 year old son play on your phone. I would clean and retake but my wife is gone with her phone so I can't do the same shots. Here are some shots in the Armor cases and next to a naked phone and a TPU s-line.

    The armor cases have each been used for a few days so it does show how it catches onto pocket lint ala an otterbox.

    Have you received your Cruzerlite case? I like the selection of colors available. How much is shipping?

    nah i just ordered it when i posted that. i believe shipping was a couple of bucks, but be sure to use coupon code "XDA" and get 10% off. Basically cancels out shipping . Also, yeah i do like the colors as well. I went for teal btw

    My phone will be arriving in 2 weeks and since I want it's protection to be here when I start using it. I think I am decided on the Diztronic TPU Case but I really want to show off the back side of the phone. So would you suggest that I go for the Official Bumper case? I am concerned that if I drop the phone how much of a shock can that case absorb?

    Also please suggest me a screen guard I should buy for the front and back. I don't want to go all guns and spend on this and that. I am already stretched quite a bit with the shopping I did this month!
