    So, I finally found my fatal flaw with the NÜÜD case, and will be returning it today to Verizon. Others might not see it as one, but it's been driving me crazy and as much as I love the case and love feeling my nekkid screen...

    The shades. The notification shade and the control center shade. I feel like I have to swipe three times to get the shade to slide. To get the control center shade to "wake up" and open I've had to push the home button (basically an act of frustration) to get it to launch. And when I tap the top of a screen to get from bottom to top while scrolling I have to focus really hard on tapping the right spot.

    I need my flashlight in 3 seconds vs 10 seconds and a swear word.

    NÜÜD, it was fun while it lasted but not for 109.99
    This has been the case from every Nuud every year. Geez Verizon selling them higher than suggested retail by Lifeproof? Greedy Verizon. Lol.

    I don't remember having that issue with my other ones. They charge extra because they include device replacement coverage in the box if anything happens to the phone due to case failure.

    I caved and bought the Apple black leather case today, got tired of my Pelican Protector. The Pelican is a great case but I wanted to try something else for awhile.

    I'm really enjoying this year's Apple leather case. The leather feels a bit nicer and the buttons are much improved, makes it kinda worth the premium price.

    That's the same case I use and love it.

    Lost an Ocean Blue, or whatever the light colored blue one is called, on eBay tonight because my notifications didn't notify me I'd been outbid. I didn't even get a harassing email. Just boom. Lost it by fifty damn cents.

    All right, I bit the bullet and bought a Mous Limitless with black leather back. I should have it in February is their estimation. By then I should have a Rhinoshield Playproof, or maybe the Solid Suit will be available, and I'm thinking of a doing a side by side comparison of the two.

    It appears there is an eBay listing for them at only about $7 after shipping from a Chinese seller. They have it in green and pink.

    Picked up the Spigen Ultra Hybrid 2. Here are some photos in comparison to the first version. The 2nd version adds a little more camera protection and has vents on the bottom for what reason I don't know. Also the nubs in the corner to keep the back and camera from touching the surface is more pronounced. All in all I like it better than the first version.

    It won't be my daily use case, (I love the Apple silicone cases and will probably get either the red or ocean blue to join the white and midnight blue I have) but it'll definitely be in the rotation.

    I took a long look at this case and for $11 you can't go wrong. It's on my list because of this damn thread

    That is a very good question! Why don't you? They're awesome! My sea blue is super soft. I also bought the turquoise Apple Watch band to match. Love it! Perfect set up imo
    How do you like your  watch?im considering one.

    What I haven't seen in this thread are very many tech 21 cases. I use to have one on my 5s with the 3DO. All I can say is cases with that aren't worth the money. The top part of my phone bent about 20 degrees from about a 9 ft drop. Ok that's my rant for the day .

    I own a bunch of them. No issues. Haven't dropped my phone in one. Was gonna go look at their version of the Lifeproof because it's on sale at Best Buy this week.

    The only Tech21 case I don't like this iteration is their Active folio. What a pain in the butt it is!

    Does Tech21 even still use this 3DO stuff?

    I think my Gear4 Mayfair advertises having it on box 🤷🏼*♂️

    No. It's called Flex Shock now. At least on my Active cases it is. I don't know if they just renamed 3DO or came up with a new material entirely but it feels a bit different from the old ones, and I feel that the Tech21's aren't as tacky feeling as the old ones.

    Maybe Tech21 dropped 3DO and Mayfair picked it up?

    When I put D30 into Google it pops up with Mayfair and Tech21 right up top. The only other major brand I see is Platinum at Best Buy

    I like that Mayfair I have. Aaron at Mobile Reviews Eh expressed his displeasure in the form of a rant the other day about their advertised vs actual drop racing though... which is a shame, because I like the case.

    I just don't plan on dropping my phone. I barely have it out of my pocket when I'm up and moving, so having D30 is nice and all, but I don't want to use it lol

    Oh I absolutely adore it! I have the original though (almost had it for a year now). It is a perfect accessory to the iPhone. And it's fun matching the cases from  with the watch bands. I have so many! Right now using the white sport band with the white silicone. It looks super sharp!

    That's the one I've been eyeballing. It'll match my base camp Lifeproof that I'm probably never taking off again.

    It's by far my favorite color and favorite case. This is my go to case. I do have the silicone as well but the leather just feels so great and super light.

    I couldn't get into the feel of them, and the open bottom damn near made me hyperventilate. I'm too active and busy at work, with kids, and doing Guard stuff on the weekends to feel comfortable in an Apple leather. Which is why I'm trying to get a used one off of eBay for dirt cheap to use when I'm not being a total active nut.

    I have the storm gray too. I only roll with they gray and sea blue for the leathers. Both are stellar.
