    This looks awesome.

    I use a basic screen protector (nothing fancy, whatever the 5-pack of non-fitted protectors are from Sprint) with the fairly standard HTC case.

    In terms of software, I use Lookout with two settings enabled – the missing device, and the security. I’m using the free version, too, because I’m cheap.

    Yay!

    I have an anti glare screen protector and rubberized hard case on my Evo to protect it! Something so special and precious needs to be taken care of just like any fine item!! With having the screen protector on it I always lay it face down to protect the camera lens – don’t want anything bad happening to that for sure!!! A current backup and of course I always have the Sprint TEP on our phones!! We have four, yes four, Evo’s in our family and we couldn’t be happier!!!! :)

  • I have a Seidio Defense case to keep my hardware safe against drops or spills. Which keeps the camera lense safe from scratches and raised from the surface, however I will admit the flap is getting annoying.

    I have Lookout Mobile Security to protect the inside of my phone. I have found that Lookout is first and foremost in mobile security software!!

  • Protecting hardware: Cover/Lens cover is essential. I have the Seido case but no lens cover :(
    Software: Lookout is great! Works like a charm!

  • I use a Zagg screen protector, a thin body case, wrap it with a microfiber cloth and finally an HTC leather pouch. When I put the phone down on any surface, it’s always on my microfiber cloth to protect the camera lens. Nothing too extreme.

  • Invisashield on the screen and a plastic body surround for sides and back. Would love to ditch the plastic surround – the only reason I use it is to keep the camera lens off tables/counters/etc. Also the surround tries to pry up the invisashield in certain areas.

    I keep my data safe from destruction by rooting the thing, copying nandroid backups off to my computer.

    I keep my phone safe with a screen protector, case, and picking it up off the table when someone’s pouring a drink (wife’s evo has been hit with soda and tea now and survived)

    I keep my camera lens safe(er) by having an Innocell 3500mAh battery and the case that keeps it off the table.

    Only entering this for my wife who hates the larger battery and all that is good with phones.

  • I use the ballistic case! Ever since I put it on I drop the phone more. Never dropped the phone when I didn’t have a case. Makes phone bigger,but not a problem for me. Works great! Comes with 2 screen protectors. Now I don’t have to worry about the baby grabbing it.

  • There’s no way to guarantee phone safety, so the next best thing is to make sure to cover your ass in the event the phone is lost, stolen, or damaged. Prior to my rooting my Evo, I relied on MyBackupPro, and afterwards, I’ve augmented my backup solution with Titanium. I also try to keep regular copies on my desktop of the backups and my SD card.

    It’s a pain in the butt to pay for this kinda software, but the peace of mind is invaluable.

  • I use a standard film screen protector and the seidio active case and belt clip. Case snaps into clip with the screen towards your body. So I have broken my lens once which I replaced with a lens featured on G&E. Also have fallen on my phone when I rolled my ankle. Lens didn’t break that time but case was pretty beaten up, no damage to evo.

  • Phantomskinz around the entire device. Cut a circle out for the lens as well. Can’t even feel it on at all and protects my device from scratches and the sort. Lockscreen used and also I lock certain apps using App Lock function of ZDBox program from XDA-developers.

  • Stop being a cheapskate and buy Titanium Backup Pro. It may not be the perfect software, but being able to backup and restore apps is incredibly useful. If you are a frequent flasher, you know that sometimes a Dev will tweak one of your favorite apps for their hot new ROM, but you still like the old un-tweaked version better. TBP is great for restoring things you accidentally lose, and general backups as well.

    I love the protection of the camera lens this case offers, but I miss out on having a more slender phone.

  • Best way to protect your phones contents is to root your phone and either do a weekly nandroid backup or purchase mybackup from the market. You can schedule times for it to backup to either your sd card or online(100mb) and if you enable root features can pretty much back up everything from your apps to the call log.

I also use APP LOCKER….has my phone locked down like fort knox!! and you can lock any app you want with a 4 digit code, sweet. and also Audio Manager, for some reason the stock evo has no access to the system sounds??? ever had you phone stop making noise like when you text or hit the power button to turn off screen, it makes that click sound?? this app will restore that sound and access other settings also….G&E Readers…till next time!

  • As much as it scares me, my EVO runs naked. I don’t like the thought of a thick case ruining the thin/beautiful exterior. A dedicated pant pocket protects the screen. Hopefully insurance will cover a catastrophic fall.

    As for software, an up to date Nandroid backup and Lookout security is all the protection I need.

  • One of the best ways to protect your camera lens (if you dont have a protector) is to place a soft material over your nightdesk and then place the phone on top, while not a perfect solution it does prevent it from rough surfaces.

    As for your photos, go over to picasa and for 5 dollars, get 20 gb of additional storage for 1 year. Backup all your photos easily to picasa. The best part is that every new photo/album you have on your EVO can easily be backed up in picasa as well!

    I use a screen protector from Box Wave, its really responsive and crystal clear plus its washable and reusable.

As for software I use Lookout to scan all my recently downloaded apps and just in case I lose my phone I can locate it from their web site.

    I am very careful and the screen has no scratches and the camera is in good condition too though it could really use a lens protector.

    Other then that I have the phone on the insurance plan which seems worth it as if anything were to happen its fixed for free.

    I use lookout and periodically backup the phone using tools like dropbox and also just plugging it in to the computer which I find the best way to transfer files.

This app also scans for malware and spyware, locates your phone, and makes your phone “scream” if you can’t find it in you house. I would also recommend the Otter Box Commuter series. This case is solid. Also, Invisishield for your screen is absolute gold. Protects your screen like it’s its baby.

  • I protect my EVO by staying away from bloatware. Surveys have shown that bloatware attracts battery juice sucking vampireware, a leading cause of death before 5pm in many supersonics.

  • When I’m listening to music on my Evo, I keep it in my flip-front holster but slide it to the side so I can fit my headphones into the phone but keep it in its case. I also bought a pair of ear buds that have a small microphone with a button on it, and installed ClickClickNext, which changes the song I’m listening to if I tap the button twice. That way if I’m listening to my library on shuffle and I wanna skip a song, I don’t even have to take my phone out!

  • My phone spends all its charging time with the kickstand up. Since it does this sitting next to my computer, the landscape orientation makes it very convenient for, say, looking up an actor on IMDB without having to take a netflix movie off of fullscreen. And most importantly, it’s never sitting on the camera lens and it’s never sitting on the screen. Even with the screen protector, I still find that little kickstand a fantastic thing for protecting the phone from incidental nicks.

    My evo was purchased on 5/21/10…from a google i/o attendee. Because I had to have one early – I priced more than retail price. So I take protection seriously….

    PHYSICAL PROTECTION – I have a TPU case, Best Skins Ever protector, when I am sleep my evo named Kobe sleeps on the nightstand next to my bed on a phone sofa, when at work my Kobe has another phone sofa.

    DATA PROTECTION- I have weekly backups with Titanium Backup and bi weekly backups in the cloud My Backup Pro. I also use mobile defense and with recent android anti virus articles I have just installed an antivirus app.

    Friends and family already know not to ask to use my phone because I will say NO…but I will call someone for you if needed…you just cant HOLD IT!!!

The last one fulfilled its duty by scraping white paint off my staircase railing as I fell down the stairs clutching my EVO. Never put your phone through extreme hot or extreme cold temperatures. Do not bring it with you inside saunas or steam rooms! Also, keep it away from Charlie Sheen. He might try to win with it.

  • I have an Otter Box case that I use day to day. I am also an avid airsoft and paintball player who enjoys to capture video in game on my evo. To protect my EVO in game I place it into a bulky clear plastic container that has holes drilled in to access the front controls.I then fill the void space with bubblewrap. It would be a lot easier to use a lense protector I must admit.

  • I used a screen protector for the screen. For the most time, I will slip on a cheap cheap silicone case to put it in my purse and use around the house… I keep it nake when I use at work and carry it my coat pocket…But I found the cheap silicone case very useful since I had dropped it hard a few times (mostly on carpet) but still no scratch. Too bad I just can’t keep my EVO from those hairline scratch near the button…

  • I only used a screen protector and used the EVO naked since July 2010. Only saw a hair line scratch next to the button on top, but my girlfriend has the exact same scratch in the exact same place, so I guess it has nothing to do with me using it naked. I LOVE the rubbery feel on the back of the EVO and I think it’s less prone to scratches.. I hope the next EVO will have Rubbery brezel, so it won’t scratch at all!

Not only does it allow me to keep it from sliding around my car when driving, but it has a special benefit of causing my EVO to cling gently to the inside of my coat pocket, thereby preventing it from slipping out of my pocket and smashing on the ground. 2 or 3 times I have had everything fall out of my pocket – change, keys, etc… and had my phone safely secured.

  • If you prefer to keep your EVO in your pocket like I do, dedicate the whole pocket to the EVO. No Keys, coins or anything that could scratch the screen. Sounds like common sense, but imperative for those of use who do not like holsters or protective cases.

  • Cell Innovations you are a genius. Kudos to you!

    I bought my EVO a month ago and pretty much don’t have anything for it yet. I don’t let anyone touch it, not even my two turtles aka my ninja turtles. It’s been good so far even though its fallen like 3 times, luckily it hasn’t had any scratches. I also put a pattern lock on it so absolutely no-one goes on it, not even my boyfriend.

  • When I charge the phone for the night on my bedside table, I put it on an old mouse pad I don’t use anymore. Keeps the lens and screen from getting scratched on my naked EVO.

  • I made a habit of keeping my evo in my left front pocket… nothing else goes there but the evo.

  • I don’t throw my phone against the wall anymore. I also don’t jump into the pool with it as well..

  • Make sure you always have a nanodroid back up and put a copy of that on your computer (Because what good is a back up if you loose your phone). And always install lookout(Because sometimes you lost it, it wasn’t stolen)

    To protect my screen and my texts – I use an extra thick privacy screen protector. People always ask me why I’m staring at a blank screen. Guess it works pretty well. :-)

    first off I would like to say thank you to all the people of this fantastic website….

    The way I keep my EVO safe is keeping it in my pocket a majority of the day…lol kidding I use the invisasheild and a hard plastic case, I do use an app named JuiceDefender and it has been a god sent to my battery use. I use to have my phone plugged in all day at work where now I only need to charge it once a day. I still use my 4G at work and it still lasts me all day.

    thanks

  • I normally use the kick stand when setting it down on a hard surface. This prevents the lens from getting touched. :) not sure if people have already suggested it but i want to win those lil’ rings! :)

  • I use an otterbox case and make sure my roommates never come close to encountering it.

  • I use a screen protector from bodyguardz, which in my opinion and experience, goes on way easier and is much clearer (no orange peel).

    To keep it safe, you should probably use a pin or password, but I’m lazy so I use a pattern lock and hide the pattern when I enter it so no one looking at my phone can figure out my pattern (you can do this in the settings).

    i hold it in my massively tight vicegrip.

    i let my family use it because they know how much i love it so its okay, but besides them…. never let anyone else use it! haha jk

    i use a screen protector that covers the whole frontside of the Evo besides the capacitive buttons, and i use an elevated silicon case to prevent the screen from touching the table or surface, my camera just barely touches the table.

  • I have Lookout Mobile installed on my EVO to back up important pictures and to find it if it becomes lost!

    If you own an Otter Box Commuter case and used to use a Garmin Nuvi GPS, you’ll be glad to know that your phone will fit nicely in the Garmin windshield mount. Works both horizontally and vertically. Keeps it out of harms way!

  • Make sure if you EVO is in your pocket with no case face the screen toward your leg. So less of a chance for an impact straight on the screen. Cause buying a new battery cover is cheaper than buying a new EVO.

  • I use invisible SHIELD & Lookout Mobile Security also.
    But my favorite protection device are Wrangler front pockets.

  • When I first got evo I decided to wait on a case and screen protector from eBay rather than buy one in store. So I retaught myself how to crochet overnight. Cutest lil phone slip ever…

  • I keep my EVO safe by not using it as a microphone in a tsunami.

  • Get a cheap MicroSD reader and copy your entire SD card to your computer. Then upload it to your dropbox account….You have one right?? Otherwise zip it and mail it to your Gmail account.

    I use my cat-like reflexes to protect my evo from harm.

    What an awesome give away!
