    Default Case Reviews?

    Can anyone provide some feedback on the BB Z10 cases?

    I was toying with the flip cover one the other day and it seemed cheap/bulky to me. Was hoping it was more like the ipad's smart cover.

    How about the sleeves or the transformer cases? Anyone try them?

    I'm looking for something thin, yet protective, that doesn't hide the LED indicator. I guess the sleeve is the play?

    I purchased the Flip Case and I also have the black Tough case from Case-Mate.

    I like the flip case. It kinda got annoying for me with the flip cover. For me it kinda got in the way when I was using the phone.

    I like the Tough case from Case-Mate. Great protection but adds very little bulk to the phone.

    Very interested in this too. I've historically used the Body Glove cases but they don't make a Z10 yet.

    So you are telling me you can do all the gestures without any issues? I heard that the Defender will not let you do it

    Cany chance you could post some pictures of your Z10 in the Defender? (maybe if you could create a new thread to keep from hijacking this one)

    Thanks,
    Mike

    I picked up the small skin membrane and i feel like it provides almost on fall protection. Probably going to switch to a bigger case

    I'm definitely going with the OtterBox Defender when I get my Z10 on Friday. Every phone I"ve had has been in Defenders and they have saved me countless times. What I'd really like to know is how you got the Defender as their website said orders are delayed until the 9th.

    Default Case Reviews?

    I rather like my flip case. A first the cover got in the way and was annoying but i've found a way to use it to avoid that annoyance now.

    I got the flip case in white to pair up with my black z10. I like the case and how it feels. The cover is a smooth suede-like feel (not sure what the actual material is) and the back is a nice smooth, solid plastic. My only gripe about the case is that it doesn't have that "snap" to it when you cover it, but when you push the spine of the cover into the side of the phone then it covers the phone quite nicely. Maybe that's the point? In any case, I am satisfied with it... but I can see the white getting marked up over time. It was the only case they had left at my Best Buy Mobile store! I guess I could have gone somewhere else, but who wants to do that? Just let me play with my phone!!

    The Transformer looks ok but I worry about it's wear over time. Will it start to pop off the BB too easily? I worry about it becoming loose over time and then dropping it and having the actual phone take the full impact on one of the corners.

    Anyone have the normal sleeve without belt clip?

    I ordered the Otterbox for the Z10. Put it on and was pleased with the fit, size, weight. Tried a few bezel gestures from the bottom with my fat stubby fingers and it was frustrating. Apps that fill the screen were a nuisance to swipe up. It is back in the box and will be shipped back. Too bad, everything else was great.
