    Could people who have this case give their reviews here?

    How do you like it? It fits in the dock, doesn't it? Etc...

    I think the case itself is fine, but unnecessarily bulky if you don't use the extended battery. It fits in the standard dock okay. Some claim it fits in the car/navigation dock too, while others (like me) say it doesn't - at least not without applying enough force that it concerns me. Regardless of the docks fitting or not, I find that the shell slides out of the holster too easily. It won't fall out if simply held upside down, but it's too easy for my comfort.

    Anyone try the Qmadix shell/holster with the extended battery yet?

    I got it with the extended battery. It fits in the regular dock fine, just have to remove the plastic insert in the dock. I like it and the kickstand is quite nice I do wish it covered the top and bottom edges though. I use both with the holster and without in my pocket.

    I just found a thread where someone was saying it was extra hard and awkward to release. Maybe yours is defective or something? I am on my OG now, so I'll try to find that link when I'm at the computer.

    I hope more people post their experiences with it here.

    I have this case/holster. I liked it very much, however I'm a grandmother and sometimes little people try to be helpful and bring me my phone. I just didn't think there was quite enough protection around the edges of the screen, so I got the incipio case for now. I will tell you this though, my husband had this case/holster combo on his charge. A couple of Weeks ago while he was mowing the whole kit and caboodle came off (vibrated right off I think) and he ran over it with the tractor mower. He found the phone in one place and the holster a few feet away. The only damage suffered was a bent clip on the holster. No damage whatsoever to the phone, not even a scratch. So it truly is durable.

    From another thread... Kickstand works great when charging now that I have the stock Deskclock app (w/weather) installed, I have no need for the dock.... and I cannot for the life of me understand how some are saying that the case slides out of the holster easily!....I tried pretty vigorously to shake it out and could not. I mean I guess it could slide out if you're suspended upsidedown on a bungee cord and dropped of the Grand Canyon...lmao

    I don't think it would come out by just shaking the holster. Under normal use I would place my thumb against the top edge of the holster, then push up with my fingers on the bottom of the phone. I had a couple instances where I leaned or turned, causing something next to me to push on the phone, pushing it past the point where it's normally retained by the upper lip on the holster. At this point, the phone could easily slide out because it's no longer completely in the holster.

    I have this case. Very nice design with just some crisscrossing raised black lines across the back. The case really makes mt phone feel solid an the holster functionis great. MY phone doesnt slide out yet i only need to apply a little pressure to slip it out an into my hand. I wear it on my belt or sometimes clip it on the edge of my shorts on the pocket. Very nice weight to it an sturdy. I feel this can stop dents an scratches from occurring on the phone.

    Things that i don't like are as follows. The clip on the holster is to plasticy i feel it could snap under pressure. Also the kick stand is a little trick to get out for my liking. You need nails, an i clip mine regularly lol

    So enclosing i feel this case is excellent for protecting you Bionic. Only the clip an kickstand slightly bother me.

    This is the one with the ribs going horizontally right? My dad has it for his blackberry and it's already broken in a couple spots and it always falls out of the holster. Just be nice to yourself and get an otterbox! :)

    Case SUCKS. I had high hopes but if you are looking to protect your phone this is not the answer. I work on an ambulance so I am often in and out of the truck and in tight spaces. Everytime i get in the truck the back of the phone hits the seat and dislodges from the holster. Sometimes its so subtle I dont notice and then I jump out of the truck at a call and it falls on the pavement, hard shell on the phone pops off, and the phone bounces 3 or 4 times getting scratched. I have it horizontal and that is what I am used to. Perhaps if it were vertical it might avoid this more but there is no excuse for the phone to unholster its self so easily. If you push directly horizontal it holds pretty well, but add any kind of a different angle to it and it just pops right out. It is 4 AM and i am at work and was compelled to write this after getting out of the ambulance and my phone fell, hit the ground, hard shell pops off, and my camera lens is now scratched. Awful! The shell has not stayed secured to the phone even ONCE when it has fallen from hip level. Avoid it, wait for quality or at least a better solution.
