I am a terrible clutz so I tend to drop my phone frequently. I am getting my phone next week so I was looking for a good case that covers as much of the phone is possible. I found an Otter box that only works for the international version. I like the phones that have a hard cover over the screen like otter box (not the ones that you spray the liquid and stick on.
Can anyone help me find a case to fit my US sprint version of the phone?
I got the Case Mate Barely There and it is gorgeous, solidly rims the edges and back with a brushed dark stainless steel but does not add any weight or thickness. Gorgeous. Plus I put a good screen protector sheet on the screen, sleek and protected.
I got a case mate tough case the other day, and, for now, it is definitely the most protective case for this phone; its no Ballistic, or Otterbox, but until something better comes out, this case offers the best protection for this phone.
I agree with the other "slippery" comments and found that the TPU case made it feel much more "solid" in my hand as well as protecting it if it should fall. Maybe not as much protection as some others, but a really good match for this phone IMO.
I find it oddly weird that while going cheap on other acessories isn't a good idea, cheap cases seem to be decent. While I went with the Case-Mate Pop, I also got a cheap plastic one that works nicely. The same with my previous ones, while there are cheap crappy ones, I have found some cheap ones are better then some of the pricey ones.
I ordered the white Case-Mate Pop, have it in a white hybrid TPU case now and like it. Just wish there were some heavier cases like the Ballistic case I had on my EVO (the HC not the SC). The TPU case did save my phone from a chest height drop onto asphalt the other day...wouldn't want it to happen again though.
I had a tough time finding a good case in the stores (I like to actually check them out in person before buying). I went with a Gel Case from the Sprint Store. It is really nice. The only thing that bothers me is the Purple Back Color.
Does the Pop have a face protector built in like an Otterbox Defender case or does one have to just use a stick on protector?
Nope, you have to provide your own. Honestly I had one on my Blackberry bold and it got a scratch on it that drove me nuts. If it was one you could remove, I could just apply a new screen protector, but because it was attached, I had to deal with it.
