    I preordered the Ice View case, and bought the Spigen Ultra Hybrid a couple days ago when it was on special for $3 as a backup.

    Yeah, the Ultra Hybrid is of interest to me. Trying to let as much of the phone show through.

    I ordered the speck ones that were $3 each a few days ago but my favorites brands are probably Krusell and Tetded. I like the leather folio cases.

    Is Supcase or Otterbox making a case for the 10?

    I picked one of the Spigen cases up to for $3. Well, it was rude not to at that price. Can't remember the name but it was clear.

    I wonder how skins will work with the huge bevel. I usually throw a skin on the back for better grip but not sure how it'll look on this one. Obviously, it won't wrap on the bevel but will have to stop short.

    Unless it's a Lifeproof, I'll pass. What's the point of the metal phone if you're going to stick a case on it?

    The first of the three Spigens I ordered during the coupon came today. It has some interesting cutouts on the top... Can't evaluate too much before the phone arrives, though.

    As said in title, got the HTC 10 coming and need a good case. But not just any case, I'm looking for a belt pouch. Sorta like this:
    http://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/ZlAAAO...4JH/s-l500.jpg
    Nothing fancy. Only problem is, the sides block the headphone jack, which for the HTC 10, is in the middle... That causes problems, as I'd like to listen to music while I carry the phone. I need a pouch that does not obstruct the headphone jack.

    I've already tried searching on google, looked through amazon and ebay, and can't find something like this. I would like a pouch, not one of those bulky cases that attach the phone to the belt. Also, horizontal pouch is highly preferable.

    If anyone knows where I can find one like that, please help a homeboy out. Thank you!

    I ordered this one
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DAN1T4E...cUvbUpU5152033

    The power button is ridged which is nice to see on the case.

    I almost got this one:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DA...cUvbUpU5152090

    But the volume/power buttons didn't look as nice. Still a good case

    Anyone have any thoughts on the Incipio Dual Pro vs. Spigen Neo Hybrid Premium Bumper? I have had a Dual Pro on my M7 the entire time. That one looks good to me, but so does the Premium Bumper.

    Check out dbrand.com. I too usually go the Skin route and dbrand has both options for covering the chamfer or not.

    Just ordered some of the non-chamfer skins. I just like a little added protection.

    On a side note, has anyone seen any decent screen protectors for this phone? I haven't found any that look decent, and I would like to have something to toss on there once I finally get it.

    Very interesting these skins. My curiosity is how do they adhere long term (since you use them) and how do they fit on the complex curves?

    EDIT: Watched tutorial on M9 for curves. Very interesting. Now just a "how does it last" response from those that use it!

    Also very curious as to how hard it is to remove after time?

    It looks like they're using the same 3M material that was on my M8 until yesterday. I've used it in audio projects and to wrap the grille/valance on my car. It stretches well and adheres as long as you want it on there. The issue will be your hands rubbing on the edges. That's where any wrap material fails.
    Removals is easy with minimal residue and no damage.

    I couldn't find clear listed. Maybe I'm entirely overlooking it or their menus are too convoluted for me.

    Thanks for input. I saw no clear either. However I saw black and red and that appealed to me. If I can take it off without damaging the phone exterior I am going to give it a whirl and am less concerned with Verizon being a bunch of **** cakes.

    I buy all my skins ahead of the phone so I can install it right out of the box....but once I'm ready to sell the phone, I simply remove the skin and with a glass cleaning solution and a few quick wipes with a microfiber cloth, it comes out like new.
    I agree with BOWIE as well, it's really the edges that tend to fail after sometime and the edge of the skins tend to attract lint, but it's not a big deal. I usually use a combo of skin and an ultra slim clear case so I don't worry about the edges.

    I got the Spigen slim armor today but I don't like it... The silver painting on the plastic looks cheap to me... (Perhaps if it were a flat black I would feel better about it)

    I am going to get the Spigen Ultra Hybrid Clear. I think that I will like it better....(I hope)

    I had that shell in the past and it was not bulky in any way. Unless you're talking about the whole shell and holster combined.
