    I have been running a Fosmon TPU on my G2 and N7 for well over a year. Do the same thing as the Tech21. Feel and fit the same and still look good after that time. And cost less than 1/4 of that case.

    I just can't constitute the price of a case that high when it does nothing more than cases that cost much less.

    I hear ya.. It depends on your use of phone.. I had a Fosmon and it didn't feel as good to me.. the shock protection of tech is what makes it.. Good to have choices though

    I can only say spending the extra $ I kept the case as opposed to I got rid of the other case.. Or stopped using it.. I get 4 or 5 cases for every phone all the way from $9 to $30.. So I kinda go with what feels comfy at the time... You can definitely get good value on many brands

    I also picked up a lifeproof case and I really did like it except for the ability to hear and be heard on calls while talking on the handset - bluetooth of course no problem. I am very happy with the Tech 21 case.

    Well not only are cases still pretty scarce, I am seeing now some cases that are out are starting to show not compatible with the ballistic nylon. Can't see case makers making two different versions of one case. This is just like back to the VZW version of the LG G2 being different and many case manufactures left that one out of their line-up.

    I was and still am really hoping that its popularity helps get some support from the manufacturers. Not holding my breath though.

    Yeah, the ballistic backing makes it slightly larger. That's definitely going to make it tough on getting the right fit on cases.

    For anyone (like me) that wants to keep their Turbo naked but protected in their pocket, I bought a PDAir Vertical Leather Pouch case with belt clip for the Galaxy S5 and my 64GB Turbo fits perfectly. I put the pouch case in my pocket with it clipped on the outside of my pocket. I've used this type of case going back to my OG Droid as well as with my Bionic. Here's the Amazon link:

    Used to be leather vertical pouch holsters were hard to find for bigger phones. There is a better selection these days with most phones growing in size. I am thinking about this one:

    Leather Smartphones Vertical Holster Pouch Case Belt Clip Fits Otterbox Defender

    Though I really don't know if I should run nekkid or not. Since I have been using the Otterbox Commuter I have dropped mine twice. And I NEVER drop my phones. LOL

    The Tech21 Impactology mesh case is great! The only problem is it is only in smokey for the Droid Turbo, I want clear so the color of the phone comes through the back. If the phone wasn't so slick without I wouldn't even use one but it slides too easy
    I called Verizon emailed a ticket in to Tech21 and no one can get me or has a clear mesh Tech21 case for my droid, very frustrating when there are thousands for Iphone and samsung GS5. No Ebay no where!! If anyone finds them anywhere please advise

    Being a Verizon exclusive has its downfall. Hopefully with the Moto MAXX overseas it will spur additional cases and accessories.
