    They're 2 different cases. The hardskin has a ''soft rubber'' feel it's more grippy but not too rubbery. It has 2 pieces, front and back, that snap together and there's a visible seam around the edge of the phone.

    The flick has a glossy black or white finish, it's less grippy and will show fingerprints. There's no seam around the edge though, since the iPhone just slides in from the bottom.

    It depends on what you're looking for. The Flick will retain the iphone look more b/c it comes in glossy black/white plastic. The hardskin has a better grip and feels really nice in the hand I think.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but I have a few questions about the Flick and thought this would be better than starting a new thread.

    Can anybody tell me if any of the Contour cases come with screen protection? It has no information about the Flick on the Contour website and the Apple site only lists features (not what's included). I figure maybe if somebody had another Contour case, and if it came with screen protection, then there's a good possibility that the Flick will too. I have a Best Skins Ever screen protector coming in the mail just in case but I'd like to know for sure.

    Right now I have a Belkin silicone case for the meantime but the screen protector that came with it only covers the screen and not the whole front.

    Edit: Nevermind. It seems from this hofo review that the Flick doesn't include a screen protector. Good thing I ordered the BSE one :p

    I just bought the hardcase yesterday. When the case is on and you switch to silent/vibrate, the little switch gets stuck and you really cant take it off vibrate unless you take the case off. Also, mine doesn't seem to fully encase my phone; there are a couple of gaps on the top. I'm going to return it and get the flick, but the hardcase is a nice case overall.

    This case looks like a really snug fit. I'm going to apply a BestSkinsEver skin to my 3G...but am looking for a case to put on top of that when I'm going out to the bar, or for similar situations.

    Do you think the flick will fit over a BestSkinsEver skin or Invisible Shield? Looks doubtful, but I'm looking for confirmation from someone who has one.

    The HardSkin CHPPED THE EDGE OF THE CHROME of my phone and also caused light scratches on the Apple logo on the back.

    Stay away...
