Which Of These 3 Cases Is Best? Why?

I'm looking at a case for my Telus Touch Pro. I purchased the Boxwave screen shield, so now need a case to protect the device itself. I've never bought one before so I'm not 100% sure what to look for when purchasing one. So i was hoping someone could give me some advice and let me know if any of these were good. Money's not really an issue as I'll be using it for a few years.

3 I'm choosing from:

Black Shield Protector Case for HTC Touch Pro (Sprint, Alltel)
$13
http://www.daydeal.com/product.php?productid=26264

Innocase Surface - Black
$30
http://www.seidioonline.com/ProductD...e=CSR2HTCH2-BK

Textured Black Phone Cover
$25
http://nextelonline.nextel.com/NASAp...oryID=ZCH6855R


Right now I'd say I'm leaning towards the Innocase as it says it's only 1mm thick and I'd prefer something as thin as possible. Not sure if rubber makes a difference or not.

Also, I'm in Canada so not sure if shipping would have any issues with any of these.

I purchased this one for my wife from eBay. $12 shipped. It is a very nice case. It looks just like the $30 one you listed.

Re: Which Of These 3 Cases Is Best? Why?

I bought a blue case from ebay, identical to the first one you listed. I've gotten a fair amount of compliments. I paid $7 total.

That said, I had a Seidio crystal case identical to this design for the 6700 - and would definitely argue that it's not worth paying for their "quality". Within a year I had two tabs break - and that's after not once removing the case.

If you're going to get a case like this, just go with one of the cheap options. Just note that any of these will make your case substantially thicker.

You can also find similar cases pretty cheap on amazon, search under Sprint Touch pro or CDMA touch pro.

Re: Which Of These 3 Cases Is Best? Why?

Also got mine from ebay and looks identical to the first one you have listed. The only thing I am not happy about is that they didn't open up the power button and volume area on both pieces. I have a case I got for the diamond that has those area's opened up more and it made it much easier to use those buttons. Other then that though, I am happy especially since I only spent about $7 with shipping.

Does it actually help? I heard that rubberized hard case wasn't really a good option... How is it?

I have no idea what case to get... driving me nuts.

Re: Which Of These 3 Cases Is Best? Why?

Are the thicknesses of all the cases pretty much the same then?

Re: Which Of These 3 Cases Is Best? Why?

These cases can trap dirt and sand, that eat the chrome and areas covered on the screen (it makes pits in the finish)...

As long as you never remove this case, you will never see the damage to the finish, you will be fine, otherwise you have been warned...
