Default Hard Cases

Please Login to Remove!

Anybody have any recommendations for hard cases that also protect the screen? So far, I've only seen ones that protect the backside and leave the screen exposed. Right now, I have a silicone skin that is too much of a pain to get in and out of my pocket, so looking for something better.

I have used the Seidio Innocase and now the Otterbox. The Innocase doesn't provide screen protection. I have owned an Innocase on a 8310 and was impressed. The 9000 Innocase seems to be lacking to me. Too thin and falls off easy. Otterbox Defender has a polyurethane cover that goes over the screen and keyboard. Then a hard plastic shell wrapped in a silicone layer. Makes the 9000 even larger than it already is, but better protection IMO. I don't use the polyurethane cover because some people have mentioned it starts looking like an oil spot. I have a screen filter so the people sitting next to me can't read my screen on mine that doubles as a screen protector. Hope that helps.

Innocase seems to have some positive reviews after reading up on it. I also came across the case mate smart skin, which covers the entire phone including keys. Is this made out of the same material as the regular silicone skins? Biggest issue for me is getting the phone in and out of the pocket easily, which silicone does not do.

Can't speak on the case mate. If the innocase sounds good to you then go ahead. Just beware its flimsy compared to ones I've had on previous BBs.
