    Any updates at this point? I can't decide between the VenTev and the TPU.

    I'd just get both of them (which is what I did); they're cheap enough on ebay you should be able to get both together for about $25.

    But if you had to choose, I've warmed to the ventev case, but think that the TPU would be the one I'd pick if I could only have one. As I mentioned before, you might need a small knife to cut out a button cover or two if the case is a tad too snug. It's easy to do, though.

    If anyone is interested, I purchased a decent case from ebay recently. It is a hard shell case, two pieces. It has that soft, "fuzzy" finish, similar to the case-mate cases, which I like very much. It has cutouts for all the buttons and ports. The only negative is that sometimes a small gap appears on the left hand side. It doesn't come apart, but it has a little bit of play. No biggie since it was 3.95. Here's the link if anyone's interested:

    edit: btw this isn't one of those soft, rubber ebay cases that fit as well as a 10 year old sock. I tried one of those too, pretty awful.

    I'm waiting for Mobi's hard shell case. My gf got one for her Focus and I love it. They've released one for the Titan, The Focus Flash... I hope the Focus S is next!

    I have been watching threads like this, and nobody has mentioned Case-Mate's Barely There case. It is a nice case, it protects the back and sides without adding much bulk. This and an Invisible Shield screen protector and you'd be good to go. I've yet to get the latter, but I love this case.

    Newegg.com - Case-Mate Black Barely There Case For Samsung Focus S CM017837

    I linked to Black (which NewEgg is currently out of), there is also Pink at NewEgg and I've seen Blue here and there. I've bought it elsewhere, but you often see it without a picture. It adds just enough so that the buttons don't get hit in your pocket, otherwise it's like it's "Barely There."

    Edit: Here is a link to the blue one on Amazon. Be careful, you should be able to get these under $10.

    I agree with E-werd. I have used the Case Mate Barely There CM017837 and the NiteIze Clip Case Cargo Tall since I purchased my Focus S in December 2011. Have not had any inadvertant button pushes, except for operator stupidity.

    I have the casemate tough case from ATT. The case protects the device really well. It is a little tough to get on but it that is because it is a tight fit. Only issue with it is that it will cause the first stage of the camera key to stay depressed which can cause some of issues. They must not have a very good QA department. Anyways I was able to resolve this with a very simple solution that I outlined on another case thread. After my fix I think the case is perfect. Without the fix it is frustrating.
    I just got the Case Mate Tough case and the shutter button and non-sleeping is really frustrating. Can you please share your fix?

    Thanks!

    Would it be possible to use an exacto knife to cut around the buttons on the silicone? I have considered getting this case, but after reading reviews saying this is such a problem, I'm not sure I want to get it unless cutting it would make it better. lol.

    There are so many nice options on amazon and ebay. Ive personally purchased about 10 different cases for both my wife's Focus S and My own. Some are really nice, others were eh(some of the gel ones seemed too bulky and loose) but on amazon, you can buy probably 5-6 cases and youll have a total of about 20+ dollars, the price of just ONE of those case mates. The ones I would recommend are the hard cases, they really dont add that much bulk, they protect the phone on all corners, sides, bottom and top, and they still keep the phone relatively light weight. Amazon.com, search i937 focus s hard case and try out a few, I love having multiple cases at home, I can change them with my themes and moods. Currently, I have a Blue hard case that matches my blue tiles, I have a lime case that matches my lime tiles, and then I have a skull case, a standard black case(gel), and a carbon green case to match my green tiles. My wife has a purple/black rhinestone, a few flower cases, black with blue lilies, white with pink lilies or someting like that, butterflies case(magenta colored case) and a purple gel case. I bought all of these cases combined for less than 50 dollars...well worth having the options and having total protection on the phone. I feel like I could chuck my phone against a wall and it still would hold up...
