    Has anyone found any good cases for the Z1S? I have been looking and can't find anything that great.

    I'm happy with the Tech21 Tactical case I got from TMobile. Good protection and good feel. Phone is still compact.

    Its hard to find any accessories for this phone outside of the overpriced stuff in the store. I feel much better having something though.

    The other choice, and what I got at first just to have some something, is a universal pouch-type case with a belt clip. I got it so that I could have some protection until I figured out the scarcity of cases at other than Tmo.

    I have this case too and it is pretty good. The only complaint I have is I wish the magnetic charging connector was exposed so I could charge the phone with the case on. Right now I use the usb port but messing with the flap cover is a pain.

    I have both the the 21 black and the clear one. Like them both. He only one I saw at the T-Mobile store that has the opening for the magnetic charge is the body glove but it look a little cheap to me

    The body glove sucks. Finish rubs off on the edges and corners after one day in a pocket. The slide on design means you often pull the bottom piece off when quickly reaching into your pocket to grab it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Does the black Tactical case from Tech21 have a rubbery matte finish that attracts pocket lint? I have the Body Glove but hate it.

    I have the Tech21 Tactical and the finish on it has a rubbery feel but it is not rubber. I have not had an issue with it attracting lint. My Z1s "rides" in the inside pocket of my Carharrtt coat when I'm out and about which has plenty of lint to attract.

    Hope this helps.

    It's not a case, but I got my ghost armor in yesterday. I got the carbon fiber skin and the phone feels so much better in the hand, no more slippery slimy fingerprint magnet back.

    After originally buying the black Body Glove and returning it because of the peeling, I went with the black Tech21 but after a couple weeks dealing with the stiff power button, I had to return it. I was getting carpal tunnel cause of it. I ended up again with the Body Glove this time the blue one hopefully it doesn't peel as bad as the black one, but if it does oh well

    DevilCase USA makes an amazing bumper for the Z1 and on xda some users said the company is going to make them for the Z1s also. Really hope it happens soon.

    I have the tech 21 in black on my phone and I agree it is a decent case

    So I had bought the body glove and the soft finish wore off emailed body glove and they wanted me to send pics and so I tried to next thing I know they blocked my email so go to pay my bill and tmobile rep sees my phone and says no case I told her what happened and they exchanged the case for me for the tech 21 case and it's nice so tech 21 is the way to go
