    Decided to try a clear case. Can barely see the blue back so might be for naught

    I just got the Ornarto slim. There are a bunch sold under different brands that look exactly the same. The flaked/frosted versions have more grip than the smooth variants. I liked the Bear Motion case on my V30 better as it had a rubbery material on the case which that added more grip. My only real gripe is that the case opening on the left side is one big opening for the volume and Google Now button. I would like some separation with a strip of case material so I don't keep activating Google assistant when I think I'm pressing the volume down button.

    I got this type of case as well... By a different name.... It's exactly what it looks like... Scratch protection only... Super thin...

    I got that as well but then got the next model up with the black reinforced edges. Still clear in the back.

    Can anybody recomend a case with a kickstand?
    My S7 Edge and iPhone 7 plus have Seidio cases with kickstands. They also have really good belt clips.
    https://www.amazon.com/Seidio-SURFAC...cUvbUpU6410220
    Replaced my S7 edge with a V40 and liking it so far.
    The Tech 21 case that Tmobile had in stock is nice but i miss the kickstand. Comes in great when im having lunch out somewhere.

    The Spigen Tough Armor has a kickstand. Nice case, but I still wish the button covers were more tactile. The cover over the 'assistant' button (disabled) has an easy to find texture, but none of the others.

    Maybe I will get one. I hate that damn button. Lol. Everytime I want to turn down the volume I hit it.

    I can't remember if I ever ordered one for my V40... I have had them for my last 4 or 5 phones, but I'm still using the Spigen at the moment. Guess I need to check my Amazon order history.
    Edit : just realized you were talking about the Fusion X, not the regular Fusion. Have you compared them for the same phone? Curious.

    I got the completely clear model if that is the one. The X is more protective for sure. But it is a bit less comfortable if coming from the other. You get used to it though. I need the reinforced bumpers. My phone hits the floor a lot.

    Is the X much bulkier? It looks that way to me. I did just order the regular black / smoke Fusion as well as the Onyx so I can change things up once in a while (though they Onyx looks fairly similar to the Spigen I'm using..). Hopefully the buttons are as good as they usually are. The Spigen buttons feel very good.

    It isn't that much bigger really. Obviously the sides are more reinforced. I think it's the same case with reinforced sides. It adds a little thickness on the edges but not a ton.

    Everyone seems to like the slim cases. Guess I'm the oddball then.
    I put a LoveMei Powerful case on mine.
    Beefy and heavy but built like a tank.

    I'm thinking of getting that one. Currently testing a battery case, but I'm not really feeling it. This Ringke case would look good with a Skinit skin.

    Great cases. The only issue is it's not real friendly with tempered glass protectors. You can't use an edge to edge or it will bubble it causing decreased sensitivity. Some of the slight smaller tapered glass protectors work but if you drop the phone it pops off the protector. I have a few cases and only this one and the cheaper version of this with out reinforced edges does it. I actually put a film type protector on because I am not spending $7 to $8 every few weeks to replace tempered glass even though it's my preference. I see carbon fiber clear screen protectors but never tried one.

    Fortunately for me, I don't use screen protectors. I got this case last week and I like it. The way it's shaped feels like it locks it in hand. The only thing I don't like is that it's hard to tell the volume and assistant buttons apart. The space between them should have been recessed to leave a gap.
