Oh yeah, I forgot he had that. He was the one who first told me about it. Very cool it saved his phone. Did he just drop it or run it over with an excavator again?

Film protector you're gonna have a bad time. The glass ones are fine you just have to be careful Putting them on. I've never had bubbles when doing them.

You're probably right, but will just be a placeholder for a good tempered glass protector

Actually, my case comes with a film one. Just requested a cancel on the other one.

They fixed the holes so they line up. Case is super low profile, not sure its going to protect much. The back is also slicker than the leather on the phone so it actually makes it a little harder to hold. Screen film isnt bad for being free

Get mine tomorrow or Thursday. Saw that Verizon thing. Then read review that said they tagged a picture in red that said will not work with Verizon. But I didn't see that. And figured they fixed it lol. Woot.

You, as long as yours is like mine you will be fine.

Some people complain that it scratches the chrome trim while removing it, but sine I plan on having it in a case from now on that doesn't bother me. This case will not protect your phone from a drop, but I can set it on a table now without worrying about scratching it on something

I picked up a new tempered glass protector yesterday for $6 just in case. Also got an otter box at work since not many cases fit the nylon turbo.

That's what I'm looking forward to. . How about the camera. Can I set it down on its back without the camera getting scratched

Good. Better than day one. Left work today and it was more than 80% granted I don't use it a lot at work.
15hr on battery and at 52%
