Honestly, you can just about spend an equal amount of time doing your homework and shopping around for various cell phone cases. Some are particularly interested in jazzing up the appearance of their new device, while others simply...

When i saw my Galaxy S2... i understood that i needed to be a no-case user. So for the first time, i just bought the display protector... and thats all. No case for my galaxy.

lol i have been wondering the same thing about my gs2. I have a very thin case on it right now but it seems to hide the beauty of it! Gonna be some sort of invisible shield for me i think.

I use a Roots holster on my belt. I have separate work and personal phones. When I'm at work I put my personal phone away and carry my work phone in my holster. When I leave work, I put my work phone away and carry my personal phone in my holster. The holster that I have is the right size for both my work and personal phones (one is a BlackBerry and one is an HTC).

Lets face it Iphone 4 users simply have to buy a case as those phones break easily or drop calls without them lol. overly extravagant glass design on the iphone 4 looks incredible well when complete covered by a case

Samsung Charge. No case. Just throw it in my pant pocket. Trade every two years?. More like every 8 months the last several years.

Does kinda make me laugh--reading this site it's all "thinner is better" but all the iPhone people I know have theirs in Otter Boxes that turn their phones into big pink bricks.

i'd have a case for my Droid 3 if slider cases weren't so s**tty. i need one that's snug, doesn't add a lot of bulk and offers at least a little bit of protection without compromising size. i want something like a nice rubber case to wrap around it but i can't seem to find anything. people at mall stands like cellbrite tell me it's because it's a slider but that doesn't really make any sense. i'm considering these cases/skins. tell me if you have any experience with them.

I dont like cellcases for most smart phones cause they add to much size to the already bulky form they have. Plus most of them look better with out them :) Now if a worked with construction/roof repair/air conditioning etc. I would defenitily rock a case for protection.

I tried going nekid with my Thunderbolt, and I love it like that! But there is now paint rubbing off the top and sides that looms awful, a medium scratch on my screen, and a few chips and assorted other annoyances, so I now have a screen protector and an roatating between an array of cheap cases I got off amazon until the Otterbox Commuter finally comes out. If only it could take a drop better :/

I really wanted to buy a case for my Charge but they all suck. I just want a case that is well designed, rubberized with a hard shell on the inside that doesn't cover any of the ports/buttons on the phone. It's not hard but no one can seem to get it right. I'm going naked until I see a good case for this phone.

Just a screen protector for my old-school Sony Ericsson K850i. The only time I use a pouch for it is when I place it in my backpack, to prevent it from getting roughed up.

Have you ever seen a cell phone case with botanic specimen embedded on the surface of the phone case? Our R&D staff developed this case recently. contact me for more details and pictures for this case.
