    I'm using the silicone tpu that Verizon sells for $20. It's very minimalistic but enough protection that if you drop it, it won't shatter.

    Also makes water drain very fast as there isn't much room for it to get trapped. Spent whole day in the pool shooting pics and underwater video.

    So I'm running naked still. I got my Z3v on the day it went on sale in my VZ store - Oct. 23rd. However, at the time they only offered the silicone shell case and I thought I'd wait for options. Well, I started to grow fond of the naked feel, however in only a week I dropped my phone to my vinyl kitchen floor from arms length while standing and the battery inside pushed against the back glass, shattering it. Awesome. One week old and my awesome new phone looks worse than the 2.5 year old Droid 4 I replaced. Talk about flimsy. Here's a pic that's hard to look at.... Xperia_Z3v.jpg

    Meanwhile, I've been back to my VZ store and checked out the Incipio case, and the outer surface of the case is slippery to me in a way more unnerving than the glass of the naked phone. I've been searching all over the internet (like the rest of you!) trying to find ANYTHING for the Z3v (there are clearly TONS for the Z3) and the one I WISH they made is by Ringke FUSION. It's clear and has some pretty cool looking edge molding and protections built in. I wish Verizon hadn't decided to go with the Z2 chassis design (since they had only recently added the Z2 Tablet and they wanted them to match?) vs. the Z3 sold everywhere ELSE on this planet. We'd all have some pretty cool options huh? Argh. Meanwhile, I've been considering replacing my phone with my insurance, but $150 for the deductible is a pretty steep price to pay for sub-par design.

    Man, I feel so bad for you. Nothing like that to really rob you of the good vibrations it gave you having such a cool device, fresh and new.

    I know how it feels. First phone I ever dropped and cracked the screen on was my Moto X Developer Edition. I still have it and keep it since it has the Wi-Fi hotspot hack and I use it with my laptop. I'll eventually fix the screen but for now, like you I have the screen taped. Thing is, that screen is damn expensive. Waiting for the cost to come down. Good luck with yours and I hope it's not terribly expensive to get fixed but given it's new I doubt it.

    I had my phone for a week before I got the Incipio case. I was so paranoid that whole time. I kept a death grip on the phone. Finally got the case and put it on. Nice fit and feel.

    I rock mine naked, but i'm curious, are there any good clear, "grip" screen protectors for the back of the Z3v? Something not slippery but won't take away from the looks?

    If you click on the link right above you in my previous comment that is what I found today. Just came out. It's the closest all clear case I can find so far. I hopefully will have it by Friday.

    I canceled that order. Someone in another forum said they ordered that case and when it came in it was still the wrong case. Oh well.


    Edit. Well even though I canceled it for some reason it is still coming so I will continue to update this after tomorrow.

    It's a fail even though they show the phone in the case. Doesn't fit.
