    First off, this case costs USD $7.49 - dirt cheap, straight to your mailbox with tracking when you order from the manufacturer (Walsontop on Amazon). That being said I'll be discussing the value : product ratio.

    What you get:

    (1) Soft TPU Case - available in black, blue, pink, and white.
    (1) Screen protector - medium grade, nothing special.
    (1) Screen cleaning cloth - fine microfiber, good quality.
    (1) Mini stylus - in the package as a gift


    Now, all of that costs just over 7 dollars, in my opinion it's a steal. It's a no-brainer not to order this case, the fit and finish is as I expected, nice, but a little loose but I've noticed this with many soft TPU cases on other devices.

    Cutouts are good, but a little too big for the microphone, I think it could be a little smaller but whatever.

    Presentation for a cheap Chinese case isn't bad as you can see in the picture below, they bothered to actually but a decent thank you card, and a free stylus, and the case came well packaged unlike other dirt cheap cases on eBay or Amazon.

    Feel is decent, I like the opaque black and the matte back, and glossy sides, it adds a little more to the quality factor as well.

    Just to link you guys: http://www.amazon.com/Walsontop-Sil...p/B00KTGUDRU/ref=cm_cr_pr_pdt_img_top?ie=UTF8

    They also sell aluminum frames, tempered glass screen protectors and a hard cover (which they're sending to me as well, might do a giveaway).


    Review on the Walsontop ULTRA Thin Protective Case coming soon! (once it gets to me)

    Same, but the Sandstone backing is extremely fragile to even regular day-to-day usage, it will start to peel or chip off leaving the glossy black finish underneath. As much as I like the sandstone back, I'll purchase the Silk White backing once it's available so I can go caseless.

    I dont really worry about damaging it, you can always buy another one, and your device will look flawless...

    But I feel that spending too much money on such a cheap device isn't justifiable. 30 bucks is the most I wanna spend on accessories for this phone. To each their own, obviously!

    If the Sandstone wasn't so delicate I wouldn't mind at all!

    They confirmed Sandstone and white covers will cost 19.99, they are not expensive at all

    Eh, still 20 dollars for something that depletes over a couple of weeks isn't my thing. I'm a student, so I don't exactly have the money.

    The Walsontop is every bit worth it. I haven't used the Diztronic but I like the built in buttons of the Diztronic, I had a Diztronic Clear TPU Case for my G2 and the quality and cut of the TPU was just as good as my Walsontop case for the OPO. Two different phones but yeah.

    I personally felt the value of the Walsontop package beats almost every other case. Case, screen protector, free stylus, and great build quality for the price.


    I'll be getting the Walsontop thin hard case in a couple of days, so expect a review on that too.

    Did they change the price? The original announcement on July 21 said that they would cost $29.

    Just checked, 29 dollars is what it is, and it's expensive for a phone that costs just 350.
