    I bought 1 at the mall for $30 lol, I needed 1 bad for work and had no time to wait 10 days for a real otterbox to ship.

    I use it. Allthough the inside top/front(the side u touch the screen on) edges dont come in contact with the phone nor have I seen any marks, it is a bit sharp for my liking so i might just take some super fine sand paper and make it smooth in a few seconds. Otherwise its good.

    No Drop test yet tho lol, hopefully never.

    I bought one at the mall at one of those wireless kiosks for $15. While it's not a clean and polished as the Otterbox brand, it does the job. Since it was mass produced (in a hurry from the looks of it) there are some jagged corners and sometimes the fit of the case might not be great. Mines a little snug for example so taking the phone out to clean can be a chore. BUT, for $15, I think it does a great job and looks the part. Haven't dropped it yet, nor do I intend on doing so but it looks like the case would hold up.
