Admittedly, I am not the most graceful person so having this Otterbox Defender Series Case for my tablet was absolutely necessary. Very easy to install, and Otterbox offers a really easy to follow video on their website or on youtube: [...]

At first the silicone seemed a tiny, tiny bit loose around the inner lip but I believe it was from the stretching you do to put it on. After a day or two no problems there. The pop up stand can be a little flimsy when typing for extended periods of time. But aside from that it has already saved me from one drop and one rather large spill (an entire full 10 oz cup of tea on the table right beside it, and some splashing onto the face. I only had the silicone on the back not the outer hard shell. No leaks, no damage, after wiping it off I took the silicone cover off to make sure no liquid got in, low and behold, dry as ever!!!

Having the multi-use hard plastic cover has also been a life saver, being able to toss it in my work bag (full of wine tools/corkscrews possible bottle caps, pens, other bar tools that would damage the glass for sure) without worry is wonderful.

I am quite careful with my electronics, but accidents happen, and I have a toddler that does not share my respect for tablets. This case was purchased for a number of reasons, primarily drops and protection from liquids.

This case does serve its purpose well. The snap together guards the sides, the silicone outer wrap holds it together, and the screen hard cover all go well together to create an impressive fortress for your Evo View. But it comes with the cost of bulk.

The Evo View is a fairly heavy 7" tablet, so I can understand the idea that it requires additional size to protect it. It almost looked ridiculous when I first put the case on. With just the snap together and silicone sleeve, it's fairly manageable, but a little goofy looking. After using it for a month, I almost prefer the size now, as the lip it creates makes it easier to hang on to one handed, versus the weird bevel/rounding without the case. The Scribe Pen still works fairly well with the case on (in my opinion... used weekly for work purposes), and I use it regularly with the case on. But the hard cover that goes over the screen makes it excessively bulky. The screen shield is great if you plan to carry it in a bag a lot, but otherwise it mostly gets in the way, and becomes an extra piece that you have to carry everywhere and rarely no what to do with it (This is the main reason it lost a star).

The buttons are still accessible, but does require additional ooomph to push some of them. Not as nice as when the case is off, but they're all accessible. The port flaps work fairly well, and slide back into place nicely, but the power port flap requires a little bit of prying to get the official HTC cord in.

But the real perk of this case comes in with its durability.

This case feels great compared to all the cheap faux leather slim cases sold on amazon and ebay. I felt very comfortable putting my flyer in a backpack with the 3 layers of plastic, rubber, and more hard plastic.

However, all that bulk comes with a price. The raised edges around the screen make writing with the scribe pen frustrating and difficult.

You should buy this case if you intend to use the flyer/evo view as a normal tablet and not for writing or drawing.

If you are looking for an elegant, classy, or sleek case for your View or Flyer, keep shopping. This Otterbox case is extra burly and extra bulky.

PROS:

* Super protective.
* Provides a very solid capture for the stylus.
* Clearly made for this device with perfectly-fitting cut-outs and pass-throughs for everything you would normally need to get to.
* Rubber flaps to keep moisture and other crap out of headphone and USB connection.

CONS:

* Big. Even if you take off the front cover/stand, the case on the device itself at least doubles the thickness of the tablet. It will no longer fit into a back pocket or coat pocket.

* Super dorky. Because of its size, shape, and general aggro looks, it's going to make you look like a rugged nerd. If you're cool with that, you will enjoy its stylings.

* The stand that is meant to prop the device upright is really tricky to open and then doesn't work very well (it will collapse at some angles).

I own the excellent Griffin Survivor for iPad 2 and wanted a similar level of protection for a HTC Flyer. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a Flyer case that offered the same substantial physical and environmental protection (the Survivor claims to be rain-resistant for an hour), however, the Otterbox Defender seemed like a good alternative. The Otterbox Defender fits well, is very well made, and offers serious protection. While one of the reviews stated that the raised edge over the screen interferes with the usage of the stylus, I wasn't bothered by it. I think the best element of this case is actually the hard cover, since with it attached, I have no qualms about tossing the Flyer into a bag or backpack since I know the screen is fully protected. However, if I could re-design this case, I would get rid of the integrated stand in the cover to reduce weight and thickness, and I would improve the tactile feel of the buttons since you need to press pretty hard and they can feel mushy.

If you've never used a heavy-duty or rugged case before, the first thing to realize is that these cases add considerable weight and bulk to your device...and in the case of the Otterbox, it triples the thickness of the Flyer and adds ~3/4 of a pound when the cover is attached. The headphone jack area is covered by a silicone flap and is physically restricted by the plastic frame, so your AUX cable can't be too thick around the connector. Also, while the camera lens is covered by a clear membrane, this case is not designed to protect from water...the screen area is not sealed, and there are holes over the speakers and microphone.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with the Flyer + Otterbox Defender combination, but there is room for improvement.
