This all-metal exterior, foam-lined interior gives you a feeling of protection from damage to your phone. Fit and finish are excellent. The gauge of the metal is thick enough to keep its shape. The cover latch closes firmly.

It does have its drawbacks. The touchscreen, while visible through the clear plastic window, cannot be used with the cover closed. The trackball and the physical buttons let you do a lot, but not as conveniently or quickly as with touchscreen. When the cover is open, nothing is holding the phone inside the case, so you have to be careful not to dump the phone out. Also, you are putting your signal-sending and -receiving device inside of a metal box. If cell reception is already weak where you use your phone the most, this case will not improve your situation.

This is a good product but not necessarily the right solution for everyone or for use at all times.

When I first bought my G1 I was really concerned about dropping it or scratching it. Therefore the Armor case seemed like just the right thing for me. After having used it I would not recommend it unless you work on a construction site or are really, really bad with phones. It performs like advetised, it is bullet-proof. However, for a phone like the G1, it is irritating to have to open up the front case just to touch your screen. I know that you have access to the buttons, but so many things on the G1 are so much easily performed by a simple tapping on the screen. As I previously stated, this case is perfect for someone who is rough on electronics, but I have discovered, for a fervent user who is good with my gear, an invisible shield and a neoprene soft case is perfect. The G1 is actually pretty sturdy and even after dropping it a few times it works just great. The Armor case is bulky and heavy and not comfortable at all to carry on your belt. Also, in the first week of using it the belt clip broke while I was depressing it to slide onto my belt. The company did send me a replacement part promptly after i contacted them (great customer service), but I was a little disappointed how cheaply the belt clip was made after how great the case was made. Since I got the part back I haven't used the case and it continues to sit on my shelf. Also, the clear plastic front scratches pretty easily. If you are concerned at all about the clarity of the cover then i would recommend getting a scratch shield for that as well.

In conclusion, toughest case on the market but as easy to get into as fort knox when you want to use the touch screen. You may want to weigh this before buying.
