Ballistic's LifeStyle case is trimmer than others

Ballistic makes a lot of cases for a lot of phones, but across them all, the colored corners remain steady. In its latest design, Ballistic's LifeStyle "smooth" case offers a less textured surface than other cases, and a lot less bulk.

Buttons

There's a wide space for your headset jack, but the cover over the power button is quite stiff.

Colorful and stylish

Although the case comes in five colors, I got to see it in purple. There's a slight curve to the case, and the silicone bumpers stand out.

Bumpers

Each case comes with four colors of rubbery bumpers that you can slip into the corners for extra protection and give. They vary in thickness.
