    Yeah i don't mind the notch when the screen is on, but it stands out like you know what with a screen protector thats cut the same shape.

    Check out this little nugget I found at Marshall’s yesterday. Penguin by Munsingwear. Pretty sure this is the best case I’ve found for $8. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...5ed093e0d5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...5ebd110e8e.jpg

    You can’t get just one! Your phone doesn’t want to wear the same clothes everyday anymore than you do.

    Got my Catalyst today. Not sure how I feel yet about the fingerprint magnet clear back, and it also has some visual imperfections/etc from the factory but since I'm sure it will eventually pick up small scratches I guess I shouldn't worry about it. The feel is really nice though and though the flush buttons are a little weird (never had those in a case before) I'm sure I'll adjust just fine as they're very responsive just like the Spigen Liquid Air I was using and also the phone caseless. The mute knob is a nice touch and the case definitely has some nice grip. I went with the green color and I think it looks pretty good with the silver X. Different but good.

    I know right!
    The 8 Plus feels good too, but not as good as the X.

    They are tanking in price because the defective design is getting more and more well known and people aren’t buying, or buying and returning. Even at this price, if it’s a case you must have I’d recommend going fake over real. My fake vs real Apple leather Folio Case showdown video will be up in a couple of days on my YouTube channel, TECH-FIGHTER.

    I’ve been on the cusp. Is the negative feedback just the flap opening and causing battery drain? I can’t watch your video until later today!

    The problem is that the flap when folded over during a call will make your voice sound muffled because the noise cancelling mic by the camera is getting covered. I haven’t finished editing my fake vs real video but I mention the issue with the flap in my OEM Case roundup video at the 4:30 mark.

    That would be right ;
    My Synthesis arrives today, been using the Sheath for awhile now.

    edit, they refunded me the extra discount, great company to deal with.

    I got this clone Caudabe off amazon or eBay other day for a few dollars. Not even real but a clone and it’s a real gem. You can definitely tell Caudabe is what it’s imitating LOL

    So two days in I'm really liking the look and feel of my Catalyst case so far. I was torn at first on the more square shape to the sides vs. something like the Rhinoshield that I had been looking at, but the more I look at and use it the more I like that instead of trying to emulate the shape of the phone which in the end always just makes the shape of the phone bigger they decided to change the shape. In this case I think it's a good thing since it feels like it enhances the handling of the phone (better grip/etc.)

    My Caudabe Synthesis arrived today, Stealth black. I Don't like it.
    Compared to the Sheath it feels like a big chunk of cheap plastic from a $2 shop.
    Buttons very stiff especially the volume.
    Doesn't sit flat on table bit of rock to it.
    Slippery back a touch better on sides but no where as good grip as Sheath.
    Shows finger prints although stealth black probably helps.
    Inside Could be a phone scratcher especially the back.
    It may offer a bit more drop protection being so stiff, i dont know.

    The Sheath becomes part of the phone and doesn't look cheap, a much better case overall.

    Very disappointed.

    Yeah I’d agree, doesn’t look nearly as enticing as their website makes them sound. Sorry mate.

    So it’s the Sheath you like? I like this cheepie I got LOL just wish stupid apple logo wasn’t cut out. Debating trying a real one.

    Sure do, its my only case now

    Have sent them a email; re the buttons and rocker see what they say. The sheath buttons are as good as the Apple leather from memory.

    18 days wait for that lol. Need to get a life

    Wouldn't mind a nice leather but not sure which one.
    Looking at Mujjo or 12 South, Sena i got was faulty, Apple too slippery.

    How was the Sena faulty? Which model did you get? 12 south reviews are questionable.
