    I was looking at the pictures of the hybrid case, and can you tell me where the access for the charger and the ear phones is? Does it lift up? I can't tell. And in the pictures they looked covered!

    it looks like there's a little flap to open the ports, seems cool.

    probably going to order soon.

    someone post actual pictures of this!

    Yeah the charger and headphone pieces are protected but easily fold out when needed to.

    After much searching I went with the black version of the Case-Mate hybrid and it has been a great case for me. I don't work in a rough environment, so the Defender was overkill for me, but I feel that this case would protect the phone well and with most 3-5 foot drops. It has a nice screen protector that is easy to install and flaps that cover all the ports and buttons (except for the mic of course). The buttons work well through the case and the flaps are nice because they keep lint from the charging port and ear bud port.

    I keep my phone in my pocket and this case doesn't add much bulk at all. It has some grip and occasionally some lint sticks to the silicon lining at the bottom of the phone, but its negligible.

    It's a great case. Sturdy and usable and it look pretty sleek.

    That case looks really great. I really like my Otterbox commuter case for my 8530!
    How is the size on the otterbox commuter? Only $20 on amazon and it looks way better quality that the casemate.

    I'm a girl who keeps my phone safely on my desk, in my purse or tote bag, or coat pocket. I'm extremely careful with it, so I don't need anything tuff like an Otterbox. But I still need a screen protector, LOL, a smudged screen just puts me out on the ledge

    I got a violet 8530 and of course I love the color and want a clear case to display it. After searching Google until my eyes are ready to fall out, I've narrowed it down to either Case-Mate's Go Bare or Clear Armor - both have a full face screen protector.

    Armor is in stock now at 9.99, looks fussy to put on. GoBare is to arrive soon, will be 24.95 but should be lots easier to put on. I wrote to ask how soon the GoBare will be available, as I really want that one.

    *** Rec'd email from Case-Mate and they have no idea when GoBare will be in stock. So, I ordered the Armor.

    I'm still looking for a good Case. I'm wondering how well a Case-Mate Hybrid case is going to protect me from dust getting into the phone. I currently already have dust under the screen, but have made it invisible with a privacy protector and using a case that covers most of places where the plastic comes together except for the main buttons/keyboard. It's a silicone one from Verizon where it comes over the front of the phone at the top. I'm looking kinda for something similar to the Body Glove Rubberized Hard Case.
