Ok, I have the hard case from Sprint, and it does an amazing job making the phone feel sturdy. Now, I don't care for the added bulk, and stopping the Oreo effect was the main reason I purchased the case. My idea is to have a snap on case, that just covers the entire outer edges of the phone to get rid of the Oreo effect. So, basically it would be like a hard case, minus the back and front. If you aren't looking for the protection of a case, but just want the phone to feel tight, I think a streamlined outer slider mechanism would be great. Anyone ever try anything like this before? I believe something can be made that would not detract from the form factor of this phone.
