  1. A lot of torch users are reporting problems with this case. The top half falls off the phone quite easily, making the protection kinda useless for that half…

    • I’ve got the exact same problem. I’ve literally had this case less than a week and the top portion pops off several times a day.

      It upsets me that I’ve paid $40 for a case to protect my $200 investment, and half of it (the most fragile part) isn’t even protected that well.

      On top of it, it makes me worry if the whole system is very reliable.

      Oh, one of my first and consistent concerns is the back. I L O V E the texture of the back cover on the actual Torch. It didn’t ever slip out of my hands the 2 weeks I had it before I got the Otterbox. But the cover’s texture just isn’t very good for gripping, especially if your hands are damp/sweaty/etc.

      I’m really quite upset, and unless someone can recommend anything I’m deeply considering returning it.

  2. This article is a bit late. I walked out of ATT on day 1 with the case on the Torch. I’ve even gotten a replacement already because, like the prior comment, the face plate pops off with the slightest pressure. The replacemnt doesn’t do muchh better. Sad since I’ve been a loyal otterbox customer. The bottom half is great but the face piece is horrible. I’d almost suggest getting an OEM leather holster.

  3. this is weird, i got this with my torch on Aug 12th.

  4. im impressed with this case, but taking of the screen/slide part will make marks on the top section, also avoid ghost armor or invisable shield, its just enough to make it not fit right, learned the hard way, just left the armor on the buttons and screen.

  5. Yeah they launched around the same time the Torch was released but Otterbox just now send out the official PR.

  6. Is there any other recommendations for torch other than the commuter?
