This here is my LG Optimus 7

With it's Gorilla glass protected screen, it would have been ok to just carry it around naked like this. But that was before WZ realized that games on the Optimus 7 is different from games on the iPod, and he would like to have some variety... So I knew I needed some sort of drop protection since it would only be a matter of time before he dropped it while playing for one reason or another.

I decided I would just go for a simple bumper case, tried searching around the local shops but as expected it's not exactly a mass market device here so I couldn't find anything. So I turned to PDAir and found this.

The Luxury Silicone Case!!! The main reason I choose this instead of the soft plastic case was that from experience, those soft plastic case usually made it VERY hard to press the buttons that are covered by the case. So I figured soft silicone would be easier, that and yeah... I really wanted to find out how LUXURIOUS it was. (Curiosity killed the wallet in this case)

The main difference I found between this and other silicone cases I've seen is the surface texture, yes... it's a silicone case with a SURFACE TEXTURE.

It's not just plain smooth like other silicone cases I've seen, feels like some non smoothed leather to me. So... feels like leather means luxury?

The case works as it should, as a soft dampening bumper in case of drops. The main problem when using cases like this is that you've put a frame on your screen and therefore reaching the edges might be a bit tricky. Luckily since it's a silicone case it can be pushed aside easily.

One problem that I do have with it is that, when my hands are dry, and the case is dry. It feels smooth and SLIPPERLY to the touch, does make me worry that it might slip off if my hands are too dry!

Still unsure about the luxury title though!
