    It's a TPU case called "Luxmo Argyle." nice feeling, slim, good grip, i like the pattern, etc. The CandyShell I previously had on there was too thick, you gotta enjoy the sleekness of the phone by itself imo. Also, no flash glare whatsoever unlike the Speck.

    Looked really girly when I saw it by itself in the packaging, but with the phone in it, I like the pattern. Makes it look like a BlackJack card or something :p

    Looks nice, similar to what I'm looking for. How is the flash?

    Edited first post. Flash is one of the things I tested when I put the thing on. Works perfectly. Tried it in normal lighting and in pitch black, no glare or artifacts whatsoever :D

    Here's a sweet one of it with the flash (look at it lit up, used the flashlight app and Photo booth):

    I bought the same case today at the mall. I like it but compared to the Belkin Vue case, the Luxmo feels flimsier. The Vue felt stiff around the edges and was less prone to the edges moving around when sliding your finger across it. This case will not provide much drop protection but its better than nothing I guess.

    Overall, I like it for the price. I probably could have found the same case for $5 online but it was an impulse buy and I like it. Also, I like the pattern on the back because its very shiny, reflective, and gives it a unique look.

    I told you guys there's slight signal fluctuation with death grip on this thin TPU but not anywhere near as bad as without a case (that kills data all together). I would say apply a bit of electrical tape folded in half (two layers) as I did and you'll be good to go without any signal fluctuation (not stuck on the phone, just wedged between the phone and case but I'm sure sticking it on there would fix it too.

    How are the sleep/wake and volume buttons with this case? Easy to use?

    sleep button is easy to hit, the volume buttons are slightly recessed but they work relatively fine.
