    I usually avoid seriously cheap cases. I learned my lesson on that. Bought an iPad for the wife. Then bought a $20 case for it.
    Really? Really Peredroid? So you drop $500 on an iPad but get the cheapest case you can find? Can you guess what happened? Yep.

    We spend serious money on these things... we shouldn't be afraid to spend money on a quality case if you like cases.

    Unless your screen is Shatterproof. :D

    I do hate most Otterboxes though. The big clunky ones anyway. Boss has the big bertha on his iPhone 5...there is nothing "fun" about using that phone in that case. But if you want to kill someone....

    There's a fine line though. I like your caveat of "if you like cases", because I really don't. I buy a phone partially because of what it looks like, so I don't want to cover it up and I'm not a fan of the clear case I found for my 6P. I rocked it in a pretty substantial case (at least as far as corner protection goes) for quite a while, but am really enjoying how sleek the phone is without it right now. I'd still feel safer having some kind of protection in case of an accidental drop, but I'm kinda torn.

    You could always make your own thin, stylish case...the Red Green way. Duck tape! :D (I figured you would know who that is, living in MI).

    ;)

    Actually watched Red Green when I lived in Ks, but don't think I've seen an episode since I moved up here.

    I couldn't help myself. The DT2 really does feel slippery. It feels much better with the case on it. I thought I wouldn't want to hide the beauty of the phone, of course then I realized nobody cares what my phone looks like but me.

    I wonder how that plastic will hold up to qi charges.. Defenders outer skin usually heats and eventually stretches...leaving the phone in a looser fitting case..

    The phone doesn't get as hot on the Qi charger as it does on the rapid charger. Either way the case doesn't seem to have any issues.

    Not to mention, its $8 bucks. Pretty disposable at that price.

    That's not true for me...on my tylt vu I've seen temps as high as 109...with my turbo charger its usually 97° or less...and I've tried 3 different tylt vu's..so...ymmv
    But definitely able to be replaced at 8$.. Still had to ask..

    Its worth every bit of your 8 bucks. It's a piece of soft plastic molded to fit a phone.

    With my Little ones finding their ways to my Phones it always has me Worried. I have all my Phones in Otterbox Defenders & Zagg Glass or Shields. Note 5 Defender & Zagg Glass, Droid Turbo Defender & Glass, Galaxy S4 Mini Defender & Shield, Droid X Defender. I have not paid more than $20 for my Defenders and that was the Note 5 one. The TPU Cases are nice but i need extreme durability and dont mind the Bulk for the Piece of mind. If i get a Turbo 2 Down the Line, well with that Screen its a game changer but I have to wait for a new phone for a bit. VZW bill is TOO High. It will be interesting to see who starts to Follow Moto which the Shatterproof Screen and that may change alot.
