    The original protector was cosmetically better other than fingerprints. They feel about the same but I like the tempered glass protection. I will still keep looking. There is a tempered glass screen protector from Brotect that Tech Zilla reviewed below but it seems to only be available on Amazon in the UK. eBay link doesn't bring it up. This is what I want.

    Just got my Nillkin frosted shield Matte hard slim case. Looks very nice on the phone and fits very securely. Back feels nice, but I feel like the sides, since they are rubber, are a bit slippery. Not as slippery as the metal, but I was hoping it would be more grippy. I also have a Ringke fushion case that I like a lot. That will be my case when I feel I need a drop protection case.

    I have another case coming in tomorrow. Will post pictures of that when I get it.

    I've been using TPU cases for a few years now. Protected all my Samsung Notes 3 thru 7, multiple drops never a cracked screen or damaged body. I just bought this case and it adds virtually no bulk to the phone. I like it.

    I also bought these screen protectors but will wait for the factory installed one to get worn out (which could be awhile lol).

    I have the Perstar Aluminum case from Amazon as well. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU5691375 If you're looking for toughest case that will protect the phone, this is it. I also have the Rinke Fusion which is good, but the Perstar is a tank. Huge and heavy but better protection than the Otterbox Defender (not made for the Mate 9). I had a Defender for my Samsung S6, but the Perstar definitely offers better protection. Did intensive internet searching but could find nothing better. Took me a while to get used to the size and weight, but love it.

    Can you post a pic of that case on the phone? Thats the one with a built in Gorilla Glass screen on it right?

    Right now Im using the UAG plasma case and its excellent.

    I've got an aluminum bumper on mine, with a skinomi to keep the back from getting scratches.

    I got the black and purple one. Nice Decepticon colors. LOL

    Only took a week to get here from China. I'm pretty happy with it. No signal degradation at all.

    New metal frame with plastic backing
    3rd or 4th case I've looked into and this is a keeper.
    The push buttons on the right are even I nicer.

    If possible, can you post some of your own pictures of it? I think the ones on Amazon aren't very realisitc. I had a similar one with no plastic backing so it was pointless. Thanks!

    I got one very similar but it rested on the camera lens. I've read you can put a skin on the camera but that seems like it would interfere with the camera. Is that what you did?

    The Skinomi skin has a little piece that covers the camera glass, but leaves openings for the dual lenses like it does on the front of the device. There's an opening for the mic as well.

    Love the Nillkin Nature series. Have one on my 6P as well and is the closest thing to Naked other than a skin.
    Completely side comment... I was looking back at this thread and scrolling through it and then I noticed what looks a lot like my car. So I stopped and wondered when I took those pictures. Closer look, it's not me. That's a CC, right? Not a whole lot of them out there and then with that same two-tone interior. I love it. I have a 2010 and it still looks brand new.

    Ok... back to cases.

    The case feels solid, the side buttons are easy and no guess work. A photo doesn't do it justice.

    It won't bounce, can't play bumper cars, not military hardware. But better than other three I bought. Think I'm seeing more now on amazon.

    I have the Ringke Fusion smoke edged, and it's not bad. I would prefer if the lip came up a bit more to protect the edges. Otherwise, it looks great, and I like the plugs to protect the earphone jack and USB-C slot.

    I have 2 cases (well 3 counting the little one that came with the phone). I first got the Ringke FUSION case. It's a nice, clear, lightweight case ($10.99 at Amazon). I like that it has dust covers for all the ports of the phone. I used it for 4 months. While it was a nice little case, I felt like it wasn't robust enough to survive a drop on concrete, and it had very little raised lip around screen. Was also a bit slippery. I then spent $29 on the Urban Armor Gear case. It's light, but a heavy duty and grippy case. Plenty of corner protection and a nice raised rim around the screen. I think my Mate 9 is about as well protected as it can be now.

    Just beware that UAG did it's drop test from 4' high into plywood. Their page mentions 4' but omits the fact that it's on plywood. Also the picture is a bit deceiving...

    Not saying it's a bad case by any means, just wanted to clarify what they tested for.

    Yeah, I remember reading that now. It is more protective than the Ringke case without a doubt. I don't plan on testing it, but - sooner or later - when I accidentally do, I'm sure it won't be on plywood!
