I searched and researched for a while, but wasn't able to find much dedicated to post-protection spills. So, I'll ask here!
I've had my Bionic for two weeks now, stepped up from the Droid 1. I was pretty rough with the D1 and the phone shows it, though it was still working(albeit creeping) and never broke it(cracked the top right corner but lived with it). Didn't have a case for the D1 either.
So, I'd prefer to rock the Bionic naked, but the top corners are the only thing worrying me about it. This area seems quite vulnerable as there's only a mm or two of plastic protecting the edges of the screen (D1 had the metal on one side and a full keyboard on the other). Plus I added the extra weight of the extended battery. I've always had good luck with Motorola phones in terms of durability, but it doesn't hurt to be overly cautious. And I don't think this phone is too pretty so I'm not opposed to covering it up.
Anyway, I picked up this case for about $8 shipped. Got the case in today and while it fits great, doesn't add much bulk and adds grip when holding the phone, it doesn't cover the top of the phone and actually looks as though it makes the corners more susceptible to damage as it puts the stress in the very middle of the corner. I've read plenty of reviews but most of them are based on the fit and finish, rather than durability. Does anyone have experience with this case, or can recommend one? Let me reiterate I have the extended battery!
I've also been looking at THIS CASE. But again, the reviews are mostly cosmetic.
Can anyone lend his or her expertise in phone-roughness protection and durability?
Maybe in a month when the newness wears off this won't even be an issue...
