I got my case about a month ago (in metallic silver) and it is by far the best I have tried (my third case). It is a little "darker silver" in color than it appeared in the picture - which is perfectly fine and you can actually use the back of the phone as a mirror if you need to. Since it is more of a hard case it does show scratches, but it fits the phone very well without adding bulk and does a great job of protecting the phone and slides in and out of a pocket easily. I especially like the design of the cut-outs for side buttons, charging port, camera lens & flash, etc., as it actually covers more of the phone in those areas - thus providing more protection than any others I had seen or tried, yet still easy to access those features.

This case is really nice! It is not too bulky and really compliments my phone. The only negative thing I can say is that I found out when I dropped the phone that it does not protect the top of the phone(phone lock) so, my phone has a couple of knicks because of the lack of protection in this area.
Looks arent everything

While these are by far some of the best looking cases for the Blackberry Torch, not only do they NOT protect your phone, but they inhibit the signal and cause bad reception. I personally bought the chrome case and I soon came to realize that it wasnt allowing me to recieve signal when in places where I previously could. So, after deciding I probably wasnt going to use it any longer, my phone slipped out of my hand (as if to prove a point) and the the groves that attatch the case to the phone broke off.
Pros: -looks great
Cons: -kills signal
-doesnt protect phone
