    Default Z10 Transform Hard Shell or Flip Shell?

    I plan on getting a z10 soon, but what case do you suggest, as I'm not getting warranty? These two are what I want, but I need better pictures or videos to compare these two. Please help. Thanks!

    I have the transform hard shell. It's really good and it feels good in the hand. I would say get the hard shell.

    Transform. The flip has its issues such as not closing flat thus turning your device on off randomly and draining your battery. I've also read that it is extremely hard to remove. In one instance a screen was cracked. I've also been told that it's awkward to type with the flip shell on. Your call though.

    I went with the transform. The stand feature is awesome, you can flip it open next to you while youre on the computer and you wont have to pick up your phone every second to check something.

    I had the flip shell. It looks really nice, but in use I didn't like it that much. It felt cumbersome when on the phone or typing. There was also no way to see th LED when it was closed, and you have to have the flip open to charge it.

    If you're looking for protection, be aware that the transform does leave the top and sides exposed.

    Go for the transform one. It's quite good. I got the red one. But I want the white one now. The quality is very good. I have posted pictures of it on my thread. My white Z10 with red transform cover. Hope that helps

    I personally have the Trandform Flip Shell. I have had no issues with it what so ever. I really like it.

    I was in your position before and I picked the transform hard shell. I heard the flip shell has the micro usb port covered and I know I will hate to open the shell to charge every night. I stay away from other case that has the side covered as I am concerned it gets into the way when I do the side swipe gesture.

    The transform hard shell also includes a screen protector, a nice surprise as I didn't notice that when I ordered it. So far I'm happy with my decision.
