    Ever since I got my DROID 3 I've had a case on it. But lately I've been getting annoyed of the case and I actually prefer it to have no case at all. So do you think that the DROID 3 really needs a case??

    Go ahead and drop it on some cement and let me know if you wish you had a case. I dropped mine from about 6 inches up on my front steps (granted, right after I got home from the bar) without a case and I've been beating myself up over it since.

    Not a whole terribly lot, but a corner and one edge definitely got pretty scuffed up, enough to make it noticeably rough, as well as rough to the touch. I was unlucky and it landed face down too, so the screen got a nice scratch on it as well. And again, this was all from a drop when I was sitting on the steps.

    Oh, I've only dropped my phone once and that was about 3 inches from the ground on wood floor but with my case on, so I was fortunate to not have any damage, but if my case wasn't on I now wonder if something would of happened to my phone. Anyways im glad it didn't.

    I rocked a naked OG DROID for about s year and that phone took an absolute beating. While I was impressed with its durability I always regretted not doing more to take care of it. Now I have the Verizon case with the holster and kickstand. Seems like a case but the nature of my job caused the clip on the holster to get snagged a lot and it ultimately broke today.

    So now what's that mean, you have no case for your phone or are you just going to use the holster with no clip. I have a pretty good case on mine right now and so far its pretty durable.

    Its a hard mold case like usual, but the outside feels like the rubber on the back side of the phone

    I went and bought a hardcase for my D3 the day I got it in the mail, and the fitment was crappy and really made it hard for me to slide out the keyboard...I tried sanding things down but still seemed to inhibit from sliding naturally...

    Ive been rocking my D3 without a case for a few months now...

    I wish there were some better options out there

    I'll wrap mine in 3M carbon fiber vinyl like I did my D1. That should be fine. I can't seem to find a case that lets the slider slide smoothly and doesn't turn this D3 into a netbook sized device. :D

    Droid 3 Cases - Save $$ by ordering online


    I got 4 Droid 3 cases online (2 each for me and my girlfriend) and paid less than I would have at the Verizon store. My case has survived to drops from 18-24" with no damage to the phone. Of course nothing is going to save your phone from damage if you drop it on it's glass face. I find the cases a bit of a pain, harder to get in and out of pockets than with a naked phone, but the trade-off is worth it for me.
