    Just got mine from the Crackberry Shop. Snug fit and adds some weight which makes me feel confident. Heard some people complaining the case left indentations on the side of their Priv. Obviously I literally just put mine on, but I also removed it once to check for anything and all is fine. I'll try again in a few days after some use to see if anything changes. Now all I need is an OEM screen protector and I'm good to go.

    Thanks for the pictures. I might get this case so that I can mount my phone on the dashboard in the car for my Waze app. I might wait a little bit to see if they change the design so that it doesn't damage the phone, or I might modify it myself. Other than that, I'm going to be using the phone with no case.

    Check for indentations, like where the soft rubber has been pressed but not scraped off. I'd check for that rather than wreck the phone.

    Be careful, as you know most early reports show this case damaging the phone.

    What a stupid design flaw. You'd think they would test the phone and the case for a few weeks and catch this.

    Like I said, I'll give it a few days to properly assess. So far so good.

    One thing that is a bit annoying though is the slight give on the left side where there is an open slot that allows the power button to move with the top case as it slides.

    Do you have a kitchen scale where you can weigh the amount of grams of this thing?
    ShopBlackBerry Online Store - *PRIV Slide-Out Hard Shell, Black
    Doesn't mention anything and I'm kinda interested to know how much more it'll add to the 192 grams of the device. Do you also know how much mm's wider and taller the device gets?

    Is this hard shell slippery as all heck?

    I looked at one yesterday and man was it slippy and just generally cheap looking/feeling

    Also the leather flip was equally non-premium looking

    Slideout Hard Shell Case for Priv-img_20151111_145542.jpg

    So like many have reported, I can confirm indentation below the volume rockers. Not sure how well it shows in the pic, but it's definitely there. It's noticeable when the right light hits. Is it a deal breaker? Probably not but I am someone that likes to keep my toys pristine. In the meantime i've applied a few pieces of electrical tape to create some sort of cushion.

    Like the other user said I used an Exacto knife to remove the small plastic rivets then used some super glue to glue the rubber back to the case where the rivets were. It worked great and removed the issue.

    Started with the knife but it was a little too small for me to handle and a bit too much work involved. My electrical tape solution should do the trick.

    There really should be a bulletin about this..

    It is clear to see the plastic rivets are not flush with the rest of the inner case.

    The rivets need to be removed to avoid problems then use minor glue or thin tape to secure the rubber buttons.

    This will definitely apply to ALL hard shells so this must be done to avoid damage.

    I may be able to make up a "how to" thread..

    Yes use a razor blade and cut the plastic rivets use contact cement where the rivets were, problem solved.

    It's this plastic rails so yes it will be. Once on the phone it should be stiffer.

    If I remember illbtry and use the htc to take some photos but they usually come out terribly.

    Yep, and the smartflip case isn't much better - the LED hole does not line up with the actual LED and the clock display through the little window only works properly when the time is only 3 digits LOL - ie: works fine except when it's 10:00, 11:00 or 12:00 LOL. When it is either of these times you only see the 2 digits for the hour followed by ... (12...) Who tests these things anyway? My guess is no one and is pretty pathetic for a $70 case.

    Oh yeah, the sliding hard case adds about 1/2" all around to the phone making it HUGE - It turns a great feeling phone into a POS imo - Yuk!

    It is very flimsy even on the phone. Not worth $40 for sure.
