Woot!! Just got my Evo3!! Review and pics!

Please choose the appropriate forum for this topic. Thank you. Hello, i just got my iskin evo3 today. I ordered it from Iskin through Amazon.com on the Thursday before Christmas.


So far i am very happy with it! the VISOR is amazing!

The 2 main problems so far is the dust and lint magnet factor, but nothing a lil air can cant fix. And the main thing is this stupid hold button cover!!! Has any1 figured the Dang thing out!! i cant get the hold button to slide for anything!

Anyway besides that, its a fantastic case! and looks sexy!

Here are some pics...

they arent the greatest, but i did my best

rate from 1 to 10 how uncomfortable it is to use the wheel with the sticky silicone on it?

How do they know your e-mail? Directly from your Paypal account?

And when do I receive the e-mail from iSkin where I can track my package?


Thanks.

I'd rate it a 3 to 4. It's decent, but it does slow you down a bit. Say for example if you're srolling through your (lengthy) artist list in the music library, it's noticably more finger movement to get from the A's to the Z's than it was with no case. On the other hand, the scrolling was almost *too* quick without the case, so it's hard to say which is more annoying. But overall very good. The VISOR directs your fingers right onto the wheel, and you can find the buttons via the little raised bits, which makes operating in low light or without looking a bit easier.

Cheers,
Scott.

I ordered mine, won't get it to next week I've been told by iSkin... *sigh*... so much for the 24-48 hour shipping...

anyways, I got the black one.

1- is your iPod black?
2- about how much thicker is yours, please, not just "a few cm" because cm are pretty large when you're talking iPod. if you could very, very roughly please measure it for me, whether in metric (cm/mm)or english (in.) I don't care. This would be very helpful. Thanks in advance...

I got a black evo 3 as well, and the hold switch wasn't that difficult to figure out... However, my failed attempts ended up cutting through the scilicone, but it was a tiny cut and is almost impossible to see. Basically, you put your fingernail in the middle of the indent. As in, between the raised part and where the hold switch part ends. It's kinda hard to explain. You put your fingernail in, and slide. It's a satisfying feeling...or maybe I am weird...lol.

For about eight years I have had the bad habit of biting my nails. But since I figured out that I would need nails to use the hold switch, I've stopped biting my nails! They should use habit breaking as a marketing thing.

Cheers! :D

Thanks...
I don't know what to do. I want a slim protector for my ipod that I can still fit in my pocket... I'm starting to have doubts on this, and might be interested in the agent18 case... Does anyone know which is slimmer?

I got my friend the Agent 18 case, and it's nice looking and stuff...but it exposes too much around the headphone port and hold switch....has no click wheel protection.....exposes entire bottom, which is good cause you can attach most bottom mounting things like iTrip, bu is really really scratch prone. If you can live with all that, get it. It's really well made and nice, just too exposed. I love my evo 3 :) .

Also, the Agent 18 case is frosted, which I was not expecting. It's nice looking by all means, and works well, but just in case, you know... It's just not completely translucent. And it's definately thinner than evo 3, although only by several millimeters.

I am only looking into thickness... the a18 case is also much less costly, so I really think I might just cancel this. Buy here is what I really want.

Can you put it into your pocket, with the iskin eVo3 case on, relatively easy, and not protruding out of your pocket, much like it is with the iPod (30g) without any case on?

^^very important, also, without the clip on

anyone think I would be making a mistake by cancelling my order?

and by the way, thank you very much for your responses so far!

I've been looking into cases, and I keep coming back to this one. But I think the visor looks so stupid...and I'd imagine take away from the overall feel is it absolutely necessary that the visor has to put on?
