Holster or leather case?


Feb 18, 2004, 12:47 PM
I'm having trouble on deciding which to use with my brand new LG VX4500. What are some pros and cons of using either one. Please give me feedback? I cant decide. I like the leather case because it swivels, but it makes the phone bulky and the phone is not bulky like the 4500. One of the reasons I like the phone so much is because it is so thin. I like the holster it comes with because it doesn't make the phone bulky, but it is harder to take out of the holster and I don't want to risk dropping it, and scratching my wonderful phone. I keep going back and forth with this one. Please anyone let me know what you do or if you know of any other phone case that you have found to work better than the holster and the leather case.

I personally chose the leather case. I had a very similar case on my last phone, and I didn't like it for two reasons.

One, I am a klutz, and I am always banging it against doors and what not. My old phone got all scuffed up. The leather protects the phone, which I like.

Two, it's very easy to unsnap the phone using the antenna, which I also did, and finally, the antenna got all loose and when I dropped it (because it fell out of the holder, I think) it broke.

The leather case stops most of these things from happening, and if you do accidentally drop it, it will help protect it from the fall.

My leather case from Verizon kept swiveling upside down because of the low clip. Does anyone have another case to suggest?

I think it's going to be a personal preference. I personally don't care for the leather case. I don't like covering up the phone. I do acknowledge all the advantages of it protecting the phone somewhat in a fall, prevents scratches (but why does that matter, when you'll never see the phone behind the leather anyway), etc.

I first got a 4400B when I renewed for my NE2 with VZW and they sold me the accessory package, which included a leather case. They put it on the phone and off I went. I hated it. Too bulky, I like feeling the keys when I press them, etc. I returned the accessory package the next day.

A week later the 4500 came out and I ended up switching to it within the 15 day trial period.

I knew already, I didn't like the le...

I'd LIKE to use the holster too, but I am such a klutz, I dare not 🙂
