    Amzer® Nexus One Rubberized Black Snap On Crystal Hard Case It covers completely around the trackball. Any reviews?

    i was gonna order that one too, but the actual amzer website has changed the pics, so i contacted cheap nexus one, and over email they said it doesnt cover the trackball anymore

    but i think the people who work at cheap nexus one cant type more than a couple words b/c all i got were like 2 word answers, so take it as that. but if you do order, let me know how it is.

    since it doesnt cover, i ordered this one, i like this color better too

    How easy are these cases to open to change battery? I might have to change battery often.

    does yours feel more plastic like a hard case than rubberized? at the least, it feels like a very thin layer of something was sprayed on it. i was expecting more of a rubbery feel, like the fluro incase slider for the iphone. i might order the seidio now, unless incase comes up with something.

    I would say mine has a rubbery feel to it. I can't really complain. Its has a similar feel to the incase slider, but not as "rubbery." The innocase on the other hand has a different texture. I like the fact that its partly transparent.

    but nowadays since the release of some better quality silicon cases are released, it's more impressive, they hold their shape better, the low cost ones from way back was too thin and flimsy.

    i bought that and it's ok, it's tolerable for me.

    but i am waiting for their release of the higher quality ones, those are good, the ones that gives me a reason why i can like silicon cases again.
    I have the exact same one that I absolutly love, much like you have mentioned, the layer of silicon is nice and thick, unlike the cheap stuff.

    Mine is a different color though. PDair Silicone Case for HTC Google Nexus One (White) by PDair - PDair.com

    I ordered this one, but it doesn't quite fit. The bottom edge leaves a slight gap. I also noted the cutout on the bottom isn't quite wide enough because it covers the two gold pins on the left. However, that doesn't matter much because even though the case is thin, it won't fit on the dock. It still works for the USB connection, but will definitely need the case removed if placed on the dock.

    It's a nice looking case, and the feel is great in the hand, but it just doesn't snap closed on the bottom. Perhaps I got a defective case.

    same here, except my upper left corner doesnt fit all the way. it snaps and closes, but there is a noticeable gap. but whatever, it's a cheap case

    YIKES !!! After reading how one user saved his by placing it in a bag of rice overnight, maybe you should carry a box of rice with you until your case comes in. Glad it worked out OK.
