    I have an Otterbox Defender case on my turbo (had one on my S4) and never had issues with it. On the turbo, however, I think it might be causing major typing issues and was wondering if anyone had experienced anything similar. I want to take the case off but am so afraid of dropping it. Please share your case vs non-case thoughts and experiences.

    Well, I love the DT without a case BUT have a Tech21 on it because it is the maximum protection for the least added mass.
    Every phone prior ..... a drop was a matter of when not "If". My MaxxHD was in a case everyday EXCEPT the one I took it off and "crotched" it in my Jeep. Jumped out and sent it across the driveway. Game over.
    It is a love/hate thing - Love the naked phone..... Hate myself when I drop it so, end up with "Burka Phone".
    The Tech21 is a nice minimalistic case with serious "tech" behind the protection. It also makes the phone a little grippier and the charging notch at the bottom sits right on your support pinky for easy one-handed operation.
    So, I focus on what it adds in functionality as well as protection.

    Is your turbo the "Balistic Nylon" 64GB version?

    I think there may be issues with this phone and the correct sizing of cases for it. It was mentioned on this board in the past. Perhaps the case designers hadn't seen the slight differences in the sizes of the turbos?

    I ended up Buying every case available, trying each for up to a week and returned ALL but the tech21.
    Knew I was keeping it but saw a video of a guy throwing his tech21 encased phone across the room at a wall (repeatedly) and that sold me.

    I don't use a case I like it thin. So far a case would not have helped me when I have damaged mine... use it for fish bait..( didn't catch any, Fish took my bait )

    I use the Verizon shell/holster case for mine. Not complete protection, but I need some extra gripping power. The phones are too thin and slippery for me to hang on to otherwise.

    Buy a screen protector for the turbo.. Then..

    Take the front cover or the defender and push out the screen protector... Use a scour pad and dawn with water.. Remove the adhesive... Or you will ruin screen protectors..

    Now apply the protector to the turbo.. Put the defender case back on.. And poof.. All of the protection and none of the hassle..

    I bought the "Speck" case from Verizon last week and ordered their flex glass screen. Got it put on today. So far, I am liking the screen. When I got home with the phone today, I did notice the lower right corner of the screen was not glued down, maybe one millimeter in width. It was not noticeable at Verizon.
    I really like the case, also. I do miss not having the belt clip, though

    All in all, I am happy with both accessories so far. I will see if I still feel this way over time.

    Did anyone really ever get a noticeable "ding" on any
    of their smart phone screens.......ever?

    I have owned 3 since 2010 an original Droid and 2 Razr Maxx and
    never have I seen one on any of mine. i kinda think screen protectors are over-rated.
