    About a week ago I finally bought my HD7 and am very happy with the device so far. One things is I can't seem to find any proper cases for the phone. I don't like those silicon bumpers and would prefer a slim leather slide-in case. The original HTC PO S510 doesn't look too bad but it's for the HD2. The S550 seems to be for the HD7.

    Does anyone have any valuable information as to where I could find what I'm looking for? Are there any other cases perhaps not made specifically for the HD7 which would still fit?

    Thanks!

    Leather? No.

    I am REALLY enjoying a Speck Pixel case - bought it at the T-Mobile store. Major reason I like it is the added rubber to the button locations. For example, the power/sleep button is so flush that it's often a pain to locate. The Pixel case adds enough rubber for the button to be easily located/used.

    I have a BodyGlove case i bought from TMO and it seems to do the job. I also saw an Otterbox Commuter that looks good. I have had a couple of the Otterbox cases for my BB and they held up well.

    i really like this case that i got from tmo. I think it shows off the great design of the phone,and the rubber grips on the side really help with not dropping the phone.Unsupported]Unsupported Browser Browser

    I really like the way this one looks, is it a hardcase? Does It make the phone heavier or thicker than the speck pixel case?

    It is a hardcase,i don't notice a difference in weight,and its not that thick at all,but the rubber around the case makes it strong. i haven't dropped the phone yet,but by the way the case hugs the phone it doesn't seem like it would fall out if dropped. I forgot to add that the rubber lining is a little higher then the screen so if the screen lands face down, it wouldn't get scratched.

    yeah but it covers the grill design in the front, I might just stick with the speck pixel case

    oh i guess you can, i didn't look close enough. Then I might just get it. Do you know where I can get that online other than the t mo website, they overcharge for everything.

    i have no clue where else this would be sold other than at the store or online store.
    The buttons aren't exposed,they are covered,and personally i think the where they are covered makes it easier to lock/unlock the screen,raise/lower the volume,and use the camera button.

    The Otterbox is much nicer than the Bodyglove. I would highly recommend it.

    Since I'm not paying $30 for a stupid accessory, here is what I got:

    Amazon.com: EMPIRE White Silicone Skin Cover Case for HTC HD7: Cell Phones & Accessories
    White rubber case, says EMPIRE on the back. Fits semi loose, which I like because I have big hands & it makes the phone feel a little bigger, but it doesn't fall off or anything.

    I thought t-mobile had a leather case in store (slim, open on the top).
    Never understood why everyone clamors about how thin and light the phones are, then shoves 1lb of rubber around them... To each their own I guess.

    I have big hands. Thin and light don't work for me, but a 4.3" screen with WinMo7 does. I never understood why people feel the need to make snotty, douchey remarks on internet forums just because I didn't buy what their little elitist wannabe friends and them want. So, I guess that makes us even.

    I thought about buying this, but I'm slightly concerned that you say it fits semi-loose. In the past I've had cases that didn't fit tight enough and they ended up scratching/scuffing the phone. Do you see any evidence of that since you've had the case?

    Not at all. At most it just snags on the edge of my pocket and pulls a corner off when I'm putting it away, and it's very easy to slide it back on even while it's still in my pocket. The case is made of silicone so it's a very soft material and won't damage the phone at all.
