    1.It appears to maybe be about the size of the Otterbox Defender. Is that an accurate guestimate?
    2. Is there enough of a lip on the front of the case where you'd feel comfortable setting the phone down screen first?

    I think it's probably slightly slimmer than the Defender.
    Yeah, there's enough rubber cushion on the front that I'd feel comfortable laying it screen down.

    Nice Wicked, thanks for the pics.

    Is it a pretty tight fit with the extended battery and cover? Any bulging like with the Commuter and others? I've been eyeing this case for a while but wanted to hear opinions with the extended.

    It fits perfect with the ext batter and door. No bulging whatsoever. Pretty tough to take the case off once on though...

    They have 'em in black aswell.

    Yeah. There's a lot of bad reviews about the USB cutout being too small for aftermarket cables. Have you had any issues with this?

    Hey wicked does that one fit and slide in the holster of the Q?

    Also are all the mic holes cut out?

    No, it doesn't fit in the Qmadix holster I'm afraid.

    And yes, all holes are properly cut out.

    I'm using the two-piece Silicrylic case that I bought from Verizon with my extended battery. There is a slight bulge in the hard shell (only really noticeable because of the slight gap between the silicon and hard pieces on the side), and I was wondering whether I should keep using it or switch to a different case. Mainly I just want to be sure that the pressure that the case is causing because of an imperfect fit isn't risking any damage to the phone. If so, can anyone recommend a case that fits well with the extended battery? I don't really feel comfortable putting the phone in the case without the battery cover on, so I'd prefer to not have to do that.

    hands down the best case for extended battery phone from Verizon. Picked one up today for $18 after corp discount.

    I pulled the little rubber decal? out of the inside and gained my extra space that way.Also the way the case "shields" the volume rocker and power..I like that it makes the volume harder to accidently change but didnt care for it on the power button.So what I did is cut the little bridge piece out and now its more of a notch and its easy to get to.
