Hey all, this is my first post here so please excuse me if I make any mistakes.
I think I will be purchasing a DNA in about 3 days and I've been searching everywhere for the best cases, accessories, etc. Including most of the threads in this forum. The Otterbox Defender apparently has an issue where the screen protector is too raised, others squeeze it too tight therefore causing screen issues, and many don't have a hole for the notification light on the rear of the phone. I forget who, but one of the members here was raving about how great Seidio cases are. Although I don't like the two piece look when it's a unibody phone, it looks pretty great. Basically, I will not be paying for insurance and am currently looking for a job so if there's a mishap where I toss it on the couch and it bounces off or it falls out of my pocket or something then I can NOT have that gorgeous screen shattering (I've heard it's a fairly common occurrence) because I will not have the money to replace it.
I suppose in conclusion my main questions are as follows; are the edges on the Seidio Surface raised enough to protect the screen without it feeling too bulky and maintaining the sleekness of the DNA? What is your preferred case for looks as well as protection? What screen protector should I use, if any? And also, is a charging mat necessary or is that little plastic cover on the charging/data port bearable?
I really appreciate any opinions, seems like this is a well-informed and helpful community. Glad I could join!
