This case is a little bulky but well worth it for the protection it gives my precious EVO. It is a little confusing in the pictures but it actually comes with a new door cover for the battery which is a $29 replacement but, is included here. (Mine had gotten chipped on one of my previous drops)
The hard plastic shell is a bit difficult to get off and on and I had to watch a video to see that it really would come off the rubber portion. A hinge on one of the corners would be great to get it started for the removal. I'm concerned I'll break one of the tabs taking it off and on but, so far so good. However, one of the tabs had caused a slit in the rubber casing but CiTiElectronic is replacing it for me.
The holster cover is very handy when I don't have any pockets, I can attach it to my shirt or jeans. I too noticed the clip would turn the phone on so I started reversing the cover and that seems to work fine. It still connects securely.
Granted, it plainly says that the kickstand is obstructed but I still miss it. If the hard shell were easier to get off it wouldn't be as big a deal because the rubber case slips off easily, then your kickstand could be exposed for use. As it is, I do the same as all those folks that don't have a kickstand and hold the phone if I want to watch a video or chat..bummer, but, it's the price to pay for the protection. It's likely that because of the bulk, an opening for the kickstand just wouldn't have enough room to actually stand the unit up.
Overall, I strongly recommend this case. I'm ready to get my replacement, I really miss it.
Only things that don't like: 1. Can't use the kickstand (yes I know the description says that). 2. Sometimes when using the case, the screen will turn on since the clip is right over the button. Overall love the case since I don't have to worry as much about dropping the phone.
Things that were a plus for me, the included cloth, & the screen...which I failed to install. All I have to say is don't peel it completely or there goes lots of time to installing it...and don't get it dirty lol, or that's it. Any questions you may have, ask away, would gladly answer. :]
EDIT: I did return the case even after I considered keeping it. The rubber skin case smelled like it had been soaked in kerosene or lighter fluid.
