    Well, I finally got my DRX in the mail and to say the least, its amazing.

    -Its similar to the Candyshell and Pop because its a 1 piece case comprised of two materials
    -The Plastic is a Frame around the Back, rather than a full covering
    - The plastic seems to be very resistive to scratching and the rubber part is their NGP Material, really tight fit
    -All the buttons are extremely responsive just like the NGP.
    -Nice Lay on Table Design.
    -Big cutouts for the Bottom, Ringer Switch, Camera Hole, and Headset Jack

    Overall the Best case I've tried thus far. Amazing Fit, looks great. And since its made of TPU, no flaking. As for the plastic and scratching, I can't say until I do the review. but no scratches after about 4 hours of use

    Dumb question, but is the outside surface hard? Meaning would it be easy to slide in and out of your pocket, like the Candyshell?

    Thanks! Ordering right now. Quick question. My NGP seems to bulge out a little on the sides, has this happened with the DRX? Also, is it as thick as the NGP?

    It seems a little bit thinner than the NGP. It does bulge a little bit around the volume buttons, but that's it

    Ah ok. Hmm. I'm now stuck between this and the OtterBox Commuter. I really don't know what to get since they are the same price. I've heard you like the Commuter a lot. Which one do you prefer?

    Thanks for posting. I've been looking for some feedback on this particular case. I think I'm going to go ahead and order one. I borrowed a friends extra NGP case and like it. However, I'm looking for a little more protection then the NGP offers.
