Another fan of otterbox cases here. I've had one for my last 3 phones. My only beef is how it makes the fingerprint reader on the v10 useless. The only fix seems to be to put a strip of metallic tape on it. Which peels in a week or so, since adhesives don't work well on rubber.
I know there's an update to address this. But I'm on t-mobile
Still not a fan of fingerprint readers. Rather not have my thumb print (no encryption is 100%) stored in a device that can be misplaced or stolen. Tried it once on my V10 but undid it; not reliable enough on the first try. Use the LG Knock Code instead which I think is brilliant.
Camera is the second reason (read about the manual controls, laser and color sensors, and OIS) I jumped on the V10. As a former Nokia 808 user, camera specs now play a big role in my purchases. I knew the V10 had the best sound AND camera.
..... a $600- phone is a $600- phone and glass, whether double, triple or quadruple will eventually Break. Protecting investment was never overkill. If I did not (for now) fixed a very tough laminate on the touch screen since day 1 with my V10, this dual layer should've been a scratched dual layer... till now I'm still contemplating which case cover i'll use.....
Investment is right. Can't speak for others, but I for one can't afford to upgrade or replace my phone every 6 months.
