    Can you put the TPU over the hard shell case?

    It's okay but it's left marks on my passport where it clips on!

    Because you mentioned this, I went ahead and scoped my device to find a very tiny blemish on the SS bezel where the material has a slight shine to it from the constant wobbling/friction of the plastic (should have been rubber on the inside) on it. Due to this the shell will be retired as I didn't expect to pay $30 for an OEM protection shell only to damage my already expensive device.

    Amzer case, here I come.

    I like the OEM hardshell but it doesn't protect my Passport anywhere near as good as the Amzer case.

    I don't like feeling like the sides are exposed. One drop on those sides, and they're all scratched up.

    Plus, with the Amzer case, it's made out of some plastic which makes it easy to put stickers on.

    Yeah, I'm actually very annoyed right now. Gonna tape up the inside and put the hard shell back on until the Amzer case comes in.

    I received my BlackBerry Passport hardshell case today and I love the look and feel of it on my phone. It allows for the beauty of the phone to be seen while still providing some protection. Based on videos that I recently viewed, the Passport is a pretty solid device anyway, so you may not need much else outside of the hardshell case anyway...

    Hard Shell case is very good . Better grip and control of the device is guaranteed. No fear of falling down. Fit and finish is immaculate . It comes with a screen protector too.

    I also had the BlackBerry hard shell case and now have the Amzer pudding case on my passport and I must say for the 7.95 versus 30.00, I say the pudding case is a better buy in my opinion. It offers better protection around the metal edge of the device and has a nice grip. Just my two cents.

    just got the hard case today and after reading this I got concerned so I check my phone...now my once pristine smooth passport has very small blemishes on all four corners. Damn. A day of use and now this.

    Thanks for the all info, and thanks to a longer ship date, higher pricetag, and the responses here, I went with the amzer case.

    Can't wait for my damn phone to get in tomorrow.

    Really after one day only? I've covered my corners with some electric tape as a stop gap solution as my hard shell is back on until the Azmer case shows up.

    Even though it's better protection, that Amzer case makes the Passport look cheap in my opinion. The hardshell doesn't take away the professional look of the Passport, while protecting the 4 corners. Most of the time when we drop a phone, it hits one of those corners that take the brunt of the damage.

    Had the hard shell case and its very good. I never had the wobbling that some have reported. Personally, I think the OEM case is better than the Amzer because the beautiful stainless steel is not hidden!

    I had also ordered the tan leather flip case and since I've had it, I love it, so I dont use the hard shell anymore. I really love the magnetic closure, and also love that I can hold it in one palm like a little book when reading documents and books!

    Yup. The case arrived in the morning. Used it. And after reading the thread in the afternoon, I peeled mmy case off to check. Lo and behold, small blemishes on all corners. Although to be fair, you'll barely notice it. But the point is, the case is supposed to protect the phone so..yeah..will wait for the pouch.

    Ok, then...let's just leave those wonderfully functioning Passports by BlackBerry...under glass and not use them?
    There is gonna be some wear and tear. Or did you think your Passport lived like Superman with no aging, flaws or hiccups? Please...come on and little blemish or wear? Haven't you been handling it? using it in cold weather outside; in your lint filled pocket; and and in a warm area of work or home?
    No one forgot their Passport in the car yet?
    getting a little picky now, me thinks.

    I understand where your coming from. I had a Q10 and it's riddled with dents and scratches. Lol. It can be a little frustrating seeing someone whining over little scratches etc... yes all our phones will get dented or scratched eventually, but most of the people here who bought the case were just hoping that maybe there could have been a better design like putting silicone gel or whatever inside the corners of the hard case ? This small things could have been avoided. Anyway, that's only my opinion..respectfully

    How is this even possible ? Since when does rubber or silicone damage stainless steel?!!

    I just removed my hard shell case to take a look at all four corners and I don't see a thing!

    Even if there's a scuff, you can rub that off with your finger.
