Fits My LG Optimus V Smartphone Just Right
on November 4, 2011
I needed a nice silicone case for my Virgin Mobile LG Optimus V phone, and this fits just right. Everything lines up perfectly, it fits on the phone snugly, it definitely provides some shock protections for modest drops (though I heartily recommend avoiding it when possible), and feels like it'll last a long time. It's just soft enough to protect the phone, and to keep it from skidding around on flat surfaces, but not too soft that it feels like it'll fall apart and doesn't stick to the inside of my tool pouch or pockets. The opening on the bottom for the USB Micro plugs fits most of my cables, but a few of my older USB Micro have larger plastic grips that require me to stretch the opening on the case slightly. However, this is only a minor issue, and not the fault of the case itself. I might consider carefully expanding the opening with an hobby knife, but since I don't use those cables much, it may not be necessary. Either way, I'm quite pleased with the Electromaster brand silicone case for my Optimus V!
October 2012 Update: After nearly a year, I'm still using the exact same case. Only a few spots on the corners show any sign of wear, and it's subtle. I'm amazed at how well this case has held up, and how well it has protected my phone (the backside looks good as new). One concern I had was whether or not the case would inhibit using credit card readers (Square or PayPal), which plug into the audio jack, but they work perfectly without having to remove the case. What a great investment!
