I love the look of the DNA and the red accents. I went caseless for a couple of weeks, then disaster. A youngster accidentally slid the phone off the kitchen counter and it hit on the tile floor. The glass broke and corner of case cracked. I used a stick on screen protector to keep the glass intact until I got a replacement. (It felt like small particles were coming out) I used the insurance to get a replacement (now I'm glad I brought it). I now have an Otterbox Defender in white and gray, my wife has one for her DNA in black. The black looks better on the DNA. It provides great protection (I think, I haven't tested it), but it totally changes the look and feel of the phone. The screen cover does reduce the sensitivity. I also brought a black Diztronic and it looks great on the phone and doesn't add much bulk, but does cover all the red. I use the Diztronic when I can carry the phone in a pocket. Being a guy, I need a holster to carry most of the time. Wish more manufacturers would offer a holster. I do believe the DNA needs some corner protection with the glass running edge to edge, looks great, doesn't like drops. I wish a manufacturer would provide a sleek phone with built in protection and a holster to keep it in. That would be something to purchase. Seems silly to make a great looking phone that requires a case to protect it.
