    So because sometimes i can be a bit ''clumsy'', i'll always purchase a case with a phone.
    For the OPO i decided to purchase the Tudia Cygen matte black.

    The case is made of two different pieces, the TPU silicone part and the polycarbonate part. The case feels strong, like it could take a good hit and protect the phone.

    In my opnion the case looks very good, it is well designed and nicely finished. The case is also available in three other colors (will post a pic). Personally i like matte black but some people prefer an actual color.

    The buttons work perfect for me, but sometimes you miss that click sound.

    I purchased the case on a dutch site (free/fast shipping/24hr) and it cost me 20 euros.
    You can get the case cheaper on amazon. $12-13

    I would definitly recommend this case to anyone. The two cons for me where the price (but on amazon its cheaper) and fingerprints/scratches are visible on the back. You can clean this easily though.

    This was kind of a short review, but if you have any questions please ask them or send a message!

    I got the metal slate version and I absolutely love it!

    Also, I read the reviews on Amazon and found out the matte black is prone to stripping within the first week...let us know how yours hold up :D

    No problem, I saw the list of reviews you made, very well done :) would love it if you could add it to the list as well!

    I took it apart and Im pretty sure it's two pieces. (website said the same)

    You mean thick? It makes the phone a little bit bigger, but it's oke..

    Metal looks nice! Yeah im curious on how long it will last, will keep the thread updated!

    Good review but I'm still waiting for the TPU OPO bumper which apparently nobody can't figure out how to make it aside in aluminum form.

    That's a must for my cases. You should take a look at the diztronic cases as well, are comparable tot the tudia.


    Orzly made TPU bumper cases with a transparant back. But i've seen some negative reviews...

    That's not a bumper; that's a TPU case disguised as one. It needs to have the back exposed.

    I have read some reviews that people say this case is too slippery. Has anyone had troubles with the case being too slippery?

    Hmm if i find a real tpu bumper case other than the official OPO one i'll let you know.

    Thanks! And yea it has just been a few days but im really liking this case, hope it stay well for a couple of months.

    The case is slippery but i had no problems so far. If you keep your hand open and put the phone+case in your hand and then turn your hand 10degrees it will slide out where some others would stay. (Hope you understand this vague explanation ;p)

    A little update!
    The case is working perfect for me. Still feels strong, i dropped it a couple of times and it does its job of protecting the phone. I did get some scratches on the back, 1 is clearly visible a few other not.

    Finally I received it. From the begining it was restarting the OPO. Now it is better.

    The hole on the top for the headphone jack was too small. I've carved a bit larger.
