    Love the case. Better than anything else I've tried. A little slippery feeling but is less bulky than others (the glove) , stays attached and does a good job of protection.

    I got one a month or so ago. It's great but I did have some trouble getting the guard around the screen to stay put. Called Otterbox and had a new one in a couple of days. No problems since. Enjoy!

    Can anyone post pictures of their phone in one? I seem to be having a hard time finding them with the old google-machine. Thanks guys.

    a picture really isn't going to do it justice, trust me. its really hard to see the difference since its a black case on a black phone. it DOES add some bulk to your phone, but this case is the real deal... like someone else said, its a little slippery, but the protection you get it is worth it.

    ordered mine monday night on newegg, got here yesterday afternoon. $25 including postage.

    I'm thinking of getting this case also. I like the fact that it is a silicone case AND a hard case. So the silicone cushions blows and the hard case stops things from hitting the actual phone. I also like that it covers all the ports to protect them from dust, liquid, etc while still having a functional slide.

    I'm definitely gonna get one.

    Shipping at newegg makes the total cheaper and for what ever reason Amazon wants to charge tax. I bought from Newegg.

    I have an Otterbox Commuter case also but I bought mine through NewEgg when they had them on sale for $19 a while ago.

    I love the Otterbox case bottom half, but really didn't care for the top (screen) half of the case. So I'm using my Amzer leather case top half along with the Otterbox bottom.

    I really want to give that new Seidio Rugged case a try as well, but I'll wait to see some reviews online from actual owners before I purchase one.

    I looked into the Rugged also but it is almost $50 and makes the keyboard unusable. It is DEFINITELY more protective but I like my keyboard and don't want THAT much bulk added.

    Why didn't you like the top half of the Commuter?

    Amzer leather case = an aesthetically perfect case (in my humble opinion)

    I personally find the $50 a hard thing to justify for a phone case in my current situation... especially since I already have two cases!

    LOL... for me, one of the features of the Seidio Rugged case that actracts me to it, is the fact that it eliminates the sliding keyboard! It's funny. I was initially drawn to the Droid because it had a physical keyboard, but after using it for a few days, I realized I didn't like the keyboard and was ultimately a faster typist on the virtual screen keyboard!

    Honestly, I feel that the top part of the Commuter case is cheap and flimsy compared to the Amzer leather top case I have on there now. Actually, the bottom half of the Otterbox case isn't as "nice" and "luxurious" as the Amzer leather bottom half case either, but I really love the Otterbox port covers. The fact that the Otterbox case has the port covers is THE SOLE REASON that I purchased it! I think it's a feature that is sorely missing from all of the other great cases out there. (On a side note, one huge plus for Seidio Rugged case is the little silicon camera lens cover/door!)

    I also feel that pairing the Amzer leather top case half with the Otterbox bottom case half gives the whole phone a more semetrical look and feel compared the the sharply ridged Otterbox top half. Of course, the Amzer top half gives the whole phone a little more bulk, but I actually think it rounds out the whole shape better and provided added protection. MOST IMPORTANTLY, the Amzer case snapped onto the Droid in a MUCH MORE solid fashion than the Otterbox does! (Top and bottom included!)

    I miss the feel of the Amzer leather case bottom half on my Droid! It was not as slippery as the Otterbox, (but not overly grippy like a silicone case)... the
    feel of the Amzer leather case was "just right". (I actually hate the slippery plastic feel of the Otterbox case bottom.)

    Ultimately, I just really like the Amzer case for it's awesome fitment and overall aesthetics.

    If only there was a "rugged" version of the Amzer leather case! I have actually considered hacking my Otterbox case to use the port covers on my Amzer case! LOL

    I bought the Amzer leather case at a Verizon store in downtown Chicago in January. I haven't seen it in any other Verizon stores, or any other cell phone stores anywhere since then! You can find it online though.

    Here is (a bad pic I found online of) the Amzer leather case.....

    I had a case like that for my Dare. It was really nice until the fake leather started to peel off LOL

    But I did love the feel of it, even with the added bulk.

    LOL... I also had a fake leather case on my Treo650 that fell apart. The Droid Amzer case however, is real leather.

    I'm surprised to hear that your Seidio Innocase scratched your phone. This is the first I've heard of this. I just ordered one because of the slimness and durability I read about on forums. Has anyone else who has had a Seidio Innocase gotten scratches as a result of this case?

    I really like the back half but I have broke two of the screen sides by just tossing my phone on the bed. I got the second one from the warranty they offer which is nice and easy to do. I am now buying a cheappy case and just running the screen side.

    Otterbox Commuter Case

    I had the Otterbox case and really liked it, unfortunately the faceplate cracked and I'm not even sure how it happened since I didn't drop the phone. I called Otterbox and they offered to replace the faceplate, but the service rep told me they were no longer making the case for the Droid due to all of the cracked faceplates being reported. Otterbox quickly refunded my money and I ended up buying a Seido case. The faceplate on the Seido case seems to be more sturdy than the Otterbox faceplate. I do prefer the bottom piece of the Otterbox over the Seido case though since Otterbox has the port covers.
