    What is the best phone case?

    What's your opinions/thoughts on your own phone cases for the Droid X ? I am looking to buy a new one I had the body glove and it is pretty messed up from 2 drops and 1 month and a half of usage.

    I'm not sure what you do but i pre-ordered a Defender Series Case from Otterbox for my DX just because im outdoors alot, hay, wrenches, dirt, and leaning up against stuff would get the best of it before long.

    Droid X case

    I believe the Otterbox Defender comes out on the 25th of this month. I've been very pleased with my Body Glove to date, although the belt clip cdoesn't work well if you have a thick belt. Complaint on Seidio is no inner lining on main cse, which is odd.

    I hear that the seidio case doesnt even work with their own car mount (can anyone confirm this?) But my case does work with car mounts, not because its designed to fit into it but because its easy to remove the case to fit into the car dock, but really what more could you ask for in a case? even if you had a case that fit into a certain car dock it may not work with others, why worry when you can simply take it off and have it always work with everything.


    ....About the time delay on otterbox (and mine) good stuff takes time! Companies like ours have reputations to hold/gain, we don't want to release a crummy product that people will hate, that's why we extensively test this stuff.

    When you drive as much as I do, and get in and out of a car quite a bit.....having to take a case off everytime is quite unacceptable.

    And it doesnt take this long to manufacture a case if your on the ball....its not rocket science.

    Well there are no real solutions for you, you either use the universal docks with the squeeze arms or take off your case and set it into the dock. If you consider that to use the universal dock you have to adjust the arms when you put it in and turn on car dock mode manually it doesn't seem like too much of a savings to me. I can open my case and remove my phone (without rushing it) in 1... 2... 3 seconds (I just did it now). My case also converts into a vehicle mount but that takes a few more seconds to setup, 8-10 seconds to open the case, remove the phone and deploy the mount.

    One must assume that most people who use their phones for navigation in their car don't use navigation all of the time, if they did they would be better served by a dedicated device, right?

    Manufacturing isnt where the time goes, it takes a good 20-30 days to setup manufacturing, if there are any problems with the process and it takes even longer. You also must design, test and design some more before you get it right. I imagine that Otterbox (and the rest that didnt have a case on release day) didn't get an advance developer kit, so they had to get the real phone before they did anything about it. Also they probably didnt think it would be as popular as it turned out to be so they didnt think to make a case for it until they heard that these phones were selling out! Amzer or whoever made the first cases did a deal with motorola or verizon to get the detailed drawings/cad files/prototypes before the launch date. I assume those were auctioned off to the highest bidder.

    I have been developing my case for over a month now and still have 20-30 days left until manufacturing is done. Trust me its not an easy or cheap process.
