It sounds like a really good case but I wish it came in white as well

Looks exactly like the ezArmor case, just marketed under a different name. I got the ezArmor, and it’s a nice solid case.

No pics of the back?  What does the belt clip look like?

it’s only $10? that seems highly unlikely for a case of its apparent quality…

It sells for $44, not $10.

Looks very similar to the $6 black aluminum case with neoprene as sold on except it is hinged on the bottom not the side.  Mine arrived today and it was a great value.

Can anyone do a review on this or something? I’d love to hear what people think? Is it low profile? Does it have a belt clip?
