    Hey im trying to decide what to use to protect my new Droid X.

    Ive pretty much narrowed it down to either the black high gloss silicone case (High Gloss Silicone Protective Cover | Droid X Case) along with a screen protector...

    OR

    i just read up on the BodyGuardz thing and that seems pretty cool too.

    i like the bodyguardz because it protects against scratchs and stuff while maintaining the out-of-box sleek look of the X, but im worried about protection from dropping my phone (though ive only dropped my old Storm maybe 2 or 3 times in the 2 years I had it, but accidents do happen)...


    which one do yall recommend??

    I can tell you if the bodyguardz are anything like the invisashield or whatever I wouldn't do it. Tried one of those once for my Blackberry and it went horribly wrong. I like Ottorbox cases

    I've used Bodyguardz for my previous cell phone and my Zune HD and I have to say it works well for scratches but not so much for nicks and dings. I would suggest the Bodyguardz screen protector (just the screen) and a silicone case.

    I'm using the Leather bound snap on cover with kickstand and it's great. Feels much better in my hand than the Silicone cases. Although I do love the NFL branded Silicone cases I've seen advertised.

    I got the high gloss silicone case in black today after hearing good stuff about it. Its pretty slick and I like it better than the hard plastic snap on cases that I got. Its thin, feels good, slides in and out of my pocket just like a plastic one and it doesn't feel bulky at all. I recommend this case!
    In case anyones interested I have 2 brand new VZW hard cases for sale. 1 clear and 1 carbon fiber. As you all know the clear one sells for 19.99 + tax and the carbon fiber one sells for 24.99 + tax. I'm asking $35 for both plus $5 for USPS flat rate priority. Let me know!

    I bought one leather case with kick stand from verizon store, I am not liking it, kickstand doesn't open easily, so most likely returning it back..cost me twenty bucks

    @Fizban22 - My wife really likes her silicone case (the one you had the link to), with one caveat: The power button is a bit hard to press because the raised surface of the case is close to the power button. Regarding the screen protector, it is probably not necessary. Motorola uses "Gorilla Glass" on its screens, and GG is absolutely amazing stuff:




    FWIW, I just removed my screen protector on my Droid a few days ago.

    Cheers,

    I don't know if it's getting better but I used to have silicone/rubber case for my iphone 3G and it let the small debris hide underneath the edge and scratch the hell out of the chromed plastic. Try to avoid anything that has loose edge fit.

    I got the case you linked and zagg screen protector. I love the case. Adds almost nothing to the bulk of the phone. I wish the screen protector had a slicker feel but overall I'm pleased.

    I just got one of the high gloss silicone case from the link above. I'm very happy. it comes off easy enough since I dock it at work and isn't very large. I'm mostly worried about hitting a wall or something with it in my pocket or a table corner. I always have the screen facing my leg and the silicone gives a little cushion. Mostly its so the phone stays looking nice. I hate scratched up phones. As for the screen protector, I don't know if I want one on it. I bought a pack at Verizon when I got my DX and frankly, it sucks. It blurs everything. I've looked at the crystal clear ones, but am still undecided. My pocket is only for my phone so I think i'll leave it off for now.

    I have the high gloss silicone case and I like it because it is form fitted and a lil stiffer than the regular silicone cases that used to be out there yet it doesnt move away from the edge. I also like it isnt going to scratch the phone itself, which is what I worry about with the hard and snap on cases. I hate a scratched up phone, and it drives me nuts to see any little nicks and such. I use a screen protector because I would rather scratch the screen protector than the actual glass of the screen and again, I am OCD about my devices looking brand new out of the box even after months, preferably years, of use. EVERYTHING I own has a screen protector on it except my laptop, and thats only becasue I can't find one big enough for it yet.... lol

    How are the hard and snap on cases now days, are they still having the potential to scratch the phone upon installation like some I have seen? The other silicone cases you see for this phone on like ebay and third party silicone cases, are they those soft extremely flexible ones that have been around for a while, does anyone know?

    I just bought the gel cover for now. I'm waiting to spend more money when the Otterbox comes out. I had one for my Storm and love it. Can't wait to buy one for my X.

    My wife and I both have the silicone case. Works fine, but for whatever reason, it won't fit in the car dock even with the insert removed.

    i have the carbon fiber case with the standard verizon anti-glare screen guard and i already dropped my X once.. the case did its job.. fell about 8 feet and landed on the bottom of the case.. minior(and i mean minor) dents to the case and absolutely no damage to the phone.. worth every penny.. was a serious pucker moment when i heard it hit the blacktop
