    If they have a windshield mount case/belt clip package like they did with the OG droid moto, then I'll be picking that up.

    ^ That's a good statement because after purchasing a few otterboxes (my top pick) I have realized that all form factor is lost for maximum protection gained - my wife's Dinc and my Bionic look the same next to each other besides the actual size difference, not sure what I am going to do with my GNXS but protection is a must, and the Razr has some sharp lines I personally would hate to see covered up by a hard shell

    ^i agree completely. I do like the otterbox case the best for protection but with the phone in video mode it squeaks and pops alot when you're moving the phone around.It kind of ruined a couple of important videos I took! The back of the razr is carbon fiber and it's tuff and light but it will scratch. That is why I'm just going to put the invisishield on the back.I want to see this beautiful phone every time I pull it out!

    I was hoping with the gorilla glass and kevlar it wouldn't need much for protection. Wishful thinking perhaps....

    I was hoping the same thing. My OG wore an Otter Box for its first year but has been naked for its second year. Not a scratch on it.

    With the gorilla glass I understood that a screen protector was not needed unless you really abuse the screen. Under normal conditions...carrying a phone in your pocket or pouch should not require a screen protector to keep from scratching.

    I've tried both the Otter Box cases:

    Defender-Built like a tank... a major bear to open, as well as being bulky. My Razr was the size of and bulky as a Thunderbolt with it on. Plus the silicon part of the set up, is a major lint/dust magnet (especially if you take it in and out of your pocket... providing it'll fit in there).

    Commuter-Obviously not as bulky as the Defender (nor does it have the added holster/clip). But after installing on my Razr, it hid the sleekness and form of the Razr. But a solid case nonetheless.


    Personally I like the glossy black gel case that I picked up from Verizon (keeps the form of the Razr intact as well as adds some protection, also it doesn't collect dust and lint went in/out of your pocket).

    I ordered the new case from TPU-CASES.COM, - All TPU Cases Shipped Free in the USA, it's like the soft case from Verizon, but it's thinner, much tighter fit and doesn't attract lint like the Verizon one. At least on my Bionic.

    $9.90 shipped for the RAZR one and use coupon XDA for 10% off.

    " With the gorilla glass I understood that a screen protector was not needed unless you really abuse the screen. Under normal conditions...carrying a phone in your pocket or pouch should not require a screen protector to keep from scratching."


    In my experience that is not true. Even with this phone I managed to scratch the glass on it on the very first day. Luckily its near the camera on the top and not actually on the display. All I did was put it in my pocket with some coins.

    Needless to say, it is now sporting a screen protector.

    what phone was that. i had an og droid and that thing has been dropped and thrown around quite a bit, all dented and watnot but the screen is perfect, not a single tiny scratch on it. pretty amazing.

    that actually looks like a really awesome simple case that wont add too much to the razr

    That is exactly the kind of case I'd love if it came in a belt/clip model. Actually, I wonder if it's thin enough that it could slide into the original Verizon belt case that I currently have...

    I actual got a good deal at the Verizon store. Got an Otterbox. Comes with 2 screen protectors so no need to buy there's. Awesome set up. I have actually dropped my phone twice. No damage to phone or case.

    I picked up the Shell/Holster from Verizon, thought it would come in handy if I needed total protection of the screen if I'm out on a bike ride or hiking, etc... It was a little pricey @ $30, but I get 25% discount :) still pricey.

    Very nice construction, doesn't add much bulk with just the cover, I like how the area for the power and volume are left blank and the top and bottom are exposed. It is a very secure fit, the kickstand feature is sweet for watching videos or desk clock. It had sort of a slippery feel to it when I first opened it, kind of like a silicone residue. I wiped it down and rubbed it aggressively against a towel to remove the residue...has a secure grip in hand.

    It also fits in the car dock, so I don't have to take the case off when I jump in my truck! When you remove the plastic insert of the dock to use a case you will notice the phone is a little loose in the dock. I put a small piece of adhesive felt at the base of the dock to take up the space....It's black in color so doesn't look too ghetto and does the trick :) I'm only showing pictures of the case, not the shell w/belt clip.....left that out in my truck :icon_eek:

    I got the soft case for my Razr. It grips well... maybe too well to simply slide down into the side pocket on my cargo pants. We'll see. Cases will be cheap in a few weeks, so not to worry. BTW, I really like the holster/stand hard shell from VZW, but my store wanted $40 for it. TOO much for a stinking, mass-produced, plastic cell phone case. :p
