    Does anyone like the Verizon silicone case over other cases?

    i decided if i'm going to use a case i might as well get the toughest case there is. so i got an otterbox defender. i like it so far. there is some reduced sensitivity in the touchscreen but i'm getting used to it. i can't make myself use the holster though. i had one when i had a blackberry because it would turn the phone on when i removed it from the holster. it was convenient. now i'm on my phone so much it would be so annoying to have to take it out all the time. plus i think it would be more likely to drop it trying to remove it.

    I tried otterbox first, too bulky. Hope the seidio is not as bulky. I normally will not use the cradle, but there will be times it will come in handy. Price, was too good to pass up. Ordered yesterday, shipped today. Will know by Friday if I
    Like it.

    I had my DNA naked for the first three days and decided not to take the risk. I now havethe otterbox defender on it with a stock Verizon screen cover. The defender built in cover reduced screen sensitivity so bad that I had to double press multiple tims to input anything. I ripped the plastic cover out and now the screen is much more responsive and less dull. Atleast I know the glass with be protected by the Verizon screen protector and the body via the defender case. Only complaints, it really does feel like a different phone. Ive forgotten the slim sexy profile of the phone. The case has a little creak and leeway on the left hand side after the plastic cover was removed, and the Verizon screen protector smudges and shows oil very easily. Won't wipe off completely unless you use a microfiber cloth

    That's a problem with the last 2 Otterbox cases I've had with previous devices. I switched to Ballistic cases and they are a million times better! No creaking and better feedback from buttons. You can get the Ballistic SG on Amazon or Ebay for about $20.

    Smudges drove me crazy!

    I ended up with a Glare Free screen protector from Day Deal's site, and really love it. It hides smudges and fingerprints for the most part, and when I do get smudges, a quick wipe on a tee-shirt or jeans, and they're gone!

    For a case, I'm currently using an Incipio feather case. Lightweight, retains the curved sleek back form of the DNA, and has a soft touch feel.

    Only negative on the case is, it doesn't protect the top and bottom edges, except with a minimum lip.

    I did order the Seidio Surface case, in Amethyst. I'm such a sucker for cases!

    What's the Best Holster/Case combo people have found? I don 't like Screen protectors, The smoothness and clarity of this screen is too good to cover. Since I don't do screen protectors , I am very wary of putting phone in my pocket.

    It seems like the built in screen protector scratches very easily. On the top right side of the screen there are a bunch of parallel scratches very close together. I can't think of what would make that kind of scratch. I don't think it's on the actual screen. Can't imagine something getting under the protector that would do that much damage.

    Just got the phone 3 days ago. I was coming off an opening day Thunderbolt. I had full insurance on it (asurian). I was not aware it would cost $99 to replace even with insurance, some how salesman neglected that part. I had T-bolt for almost 23 months. I cracked it. I had unlimited data I did not want to loses. When I tried replacing it, and found out it would cost $99 I said screw it and got anew phone. I was mad and told them they can keep the insurance I was VERY relieved to find the salesman added it to the account even though I said NO I wanted nothing to do with it. Just initiated claim and should have a replacement tomorrow. Still sad. My phone was brand spanking new not a mark on it. One drop and completely shattered. Gorilla glass2 my arse! My old Tbolt took at least a hundred drops no protection. Unfortunately that last drop caused a crack on the Tbolt. Now new one also, gonna change my name to cracker

    well, Gorilla Glass is scratch resistant. not impact proof. the main thing keeping a case on mine is the curved glass edges. way more susceptible to cracking.

    I know I personally don't like using a holster but this thing is massive. Can anyone fit the defender in their jeans pocket comfortably?

    Pretty much the only reason I'm using one with it.

    Has anyone heard of or seen a Seidio Active drop test on the DNA? The Otterbox seems very big and clunky to me, hoping for good protection from the Seidio active and I will probably get that one.

    Not with the DNA, but I had one on my Bolt with a screen protector. I dropped it from about 5', it landed on the upper left corner, and then flopped on its face. No scratches, no scuffs, no nothing at all, which is why I bought one for my DNA.

    Got a ditztronic case and I've been very pleased. Very high quality for $12, and provides good protection. Fumbled my phone tonight, bouncing it off the edge of a desk and landing face down onto a carpeted (but concrete slab) floor, and it escaped unharmed. Nearly had a heart-attack, but it seems the case did its job.

    Do you have a wireless charger, and does it work with the Seidio case on?
