    I'm having a tough time deciding between the two. I've always used hardshells in the past. The one for the Priv seems to have a lot of side lip fascia (understandably to protect the screen's edge), according to the renders, which really seems to take away the sleekness of the device. I'm now considering the flip case.

    Opinions anybody?

    Hardshell for me, I'm not sure how the flip case works if the physical keyboard is out with the intention of always using it.

    The flip case is 100% the way to go. Trust me...you won't regret it.

    I ordered the Hardshell because I love the one I'm using on my Passport now. It will be interesting to see how it works with the Keyboard.

    I ordered mine from Blueshop.ca last week and it shipped yesterday, Scheduled to be here on Tuesday. Also they were cheaper than on Shop BB

    Going to try both but leaning flip case for screen protection as I doubt any screen protector will work on this phone.

    Thanks Nward2010! That's awesome and so glad I got the black one, mind you without a phone to snap it too. Only thing is for sure its not really going to help with drops I think...

    My experience using flip cases (galaxy devices) it's really hard to type trying to hold open the case.

    This one is real napa leather and is very soft and supple, folding around the back very easily unlike the Passport flip case which is stiffer.

    so do they have a couple of light sensors which show when the case is closed and therefore altering the window view?

    I think it works with the magnet and the power saving mode. Not 100% sure though. Might also use the light sensor at the same time to resize everything into the cut out window. Either way, I agree it is pretty cool !

    suggestion from the demo is that case can remain closed whilst calling

    Yup. I'm referring to texting or just browsing
