Exclamation Rubber case or Hard Case?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys! I was contemplating getting a aluminum case, but I saw like 1/2 of the people have signal strength problems! So I K.O'd that option! Instead, I was looking at Rubber cases and Hard Plastic cases. I'm not sure which one to pick. Which one is better? I mean, with Rubber it wont protect the screen, but hard plastic will. But i'm not sure. Any ideas? Thanks!

I both have the rubber and plastic cases. I bought the plastic case at a local mall and it works and looks ok but fells kind a bulky.

So end up buying the plastic case. Better grip and looks better for me.

With the rubber case, its more of a hard plastic with rubber coating (protects phone better when dropped) as the silicone, its softer,durable and has a slight better grip I guess.

So which one would you recommend for me? I hardly ever drop mine, but just in case. I'm going to get a screen protector either way, too.

Well, my first priority is to protect it. I konw that my SE phone hardly ever scratched (the screen). Do BB screens scratch?

Also, so Silicon feels better in your hand?? But which one would you prefer. Also which one is lighter and which one will last longer? I dunno, give me your personal opinion! This is teh first phone (of maybe 5 in 2007) that I actually want to take care of! Lol!

Cool

Which one do you guys prefer?? The plastic? The rubber case or just plain 'ol naked lolz. 'Cause as of right now I don't have anything but that rubber one looks pretty nice especially for work.

I like the leather slipcase. Keeps the screen and the phone completely protected, lets me keep it in my pocket instead of on my belt. Puts the phone in sleep mode when you slide it into the case. Wakes up if you get a call or a message.

I like the leather pouch too. I have the Seidio rubberized case, which is hard plastic slightly textured (not really rubber at all). It's very very thin is it's advantage. You need a screen protector with it though.

Haha.. I got a free rubber case from Rogers because the worker was nice enough to give me one. But, my rubber case is lime green and everyone has told me the case is disgusting. All my friends hate it and my sister even said, "That case makes your phone, like, 100 times uglier"... ouch... I now currently am not using the rubber case, but am being very careful with my phone.

I just bought the rubber one, and then I also got the Invisible Shield, which I already use on other products, but I never thought about it on my cell phone! haha. It's the greatest product :D Well, anyways, thanks for all your guys's help!

When I am out and about I have a leather slip case. When in my office or at home I have a rubber skin.
