    I saw the all black one for sale at my local best buy mobile. There was only one and the rep told me that was the only one they had but they expect more soon.

    so i went to best buy today to see if they had the symmetry and they had it! in black like i wanted, i really prefer black cases, but anyway i really really like it, it feels great in the hand and its noticeably thinner then the commuter and definitely smaller then the defender, but its still thick enough to be extremely protective and not have you worrying that you broke your phone if you dropped it, it barely adds bulk to the phone or weight, the case has all the ports recessed enough so they are protected but my beats L-shaped connector still fit which i had a problem with the commuter and the defender and the power button was extremely hard to press at first but it has been loosening up with more use and the volume up and down buttons are extremely tactile, overall i love the case and i have finally found a slim enough otterbox that has great quality and protection without it being extremely bulky

    What does the back of the case feel like? Is it hard plastic like the commuter or does it have a softer, grippier feel?

    no sagging at all, the rubber is extremely stiff and durable, it is a well made case, i really like it

    ----------

    its a hard plastic like the commuter but with it being slimmer then the commuter it is much easier and nicer to hold, the quality is top notch, and with the rubber on the lip and by the top where if you're righty your thumb would go or if you're like me a lefty my pointer would go, extremely easy and comfortable to hold and do not feel like ill drop it at all

    One of the best looking Otterbox cases I've seen. I may have to pick one up this weekend.

    While I agree that a naked iPhone is the best I don't get why people keep making these comments on case forums. People like cases. It would be like having a naked forum and people shouting cases rule! I ordered one of these and am excited that it is "thinner" than other OB offerings with what looks like good protection.

    I just picked up the Symmetry today and it's definitely my favorite case so far. I prefer it over the Commuter that I had.

    It's actually extremely slim compared to any of the other otterbox offerings and it's actually a really nice looking case if you got to see it in person and yes a naked iPhone is the best way to go but I don't want any chance of breaking my phone #

    To be honest I have no idea but I may be getting one of zagg's glass ones in the future so I wouldn't know until then...

    Is the camera opening small enough that
    You don't see the second back color of the phone?

    That drives me crazy. Yes....just alittle ocd

    its actually just big enough to where you just ever so slightly see it, but you still see it, but just barely

    Hopefully the iPhone 6 has a single back.

    Agreed. I just feel it looks very sloppy

    I have a commuter which has a larger camera hole. Curious how they compare.
