    Is anyone using an Ultra Hybrid with the flush style buttons that aren't raised at all? There are little embossed symbols and the PWR on the power, but they are pretty hard to feel in the dark, low light, or while in your pocket.

    I really love this case otherwise. Anyone else wish this thing had some raised buttons?

    Buy the Spigen case with protruding buttons if you don't like yours. I use lots of different Spigen models and enjoy them all. Flush buttons are my favorite because I don't push them sliding the phone in my pocket.

    I used the Slim Armor which had the flush power and volume buttons. Could not get used to this design.

    Have the clear version and don't really like the feel of the buttons. No tactile clicking sound like the other cases such as the Speck Candyshell Grip.

    I definitely get the click with the Ultra Hybrid, I just can't find the buttons all the time without looking. I often misjudge the volume keys and turn it up when I mean to turn down the volume. I dare say I am getting a little better at it now.

    Yeah, there is a click but a bit on the stiff side. Have you tried other cases to compare?

    I don't find them particularly stiff either. I've owned an Apple Silicone, a couple generic cheapo TPU cases, and this one. The Ultra Hybrid is about the same as the Apple case in regards to clickiness. It does look cool though...

    I also have another clear Spigen case and the buttons are hard to find without looking at it. I ended up with the Speck Candyshell Grip and the raised buttons are soooo easy to click when I want it to.

    I just got a Luvvitt Clearview. It's basically everything I love about the Ultra Hybrid, but fixes everything I don't like. Most importantly, the buttons are raised. Also, the "sharp" edges where the TPU meets the polycarbonate, and on the lip, are not present on the Luvvitt. It's smooth all around.
    I'll keep the Ultra Hybrid aa a backup, but the Luvvitt Clearview is now on my phone.
