Default Seido Case

Does anyone have any comments regarding the Seido Spring Clip Case?

I am actually using the case holster that came with my 8800, but have been thinking about an upgrade.

Thanks!

Thumbs up Yay Seidio!

I have the spring clip holster and like it. I have bought this from Seidio for four different devices now, if that tells you anything.

The only thing I can say is the spring clip that goes over the phone can cause some slight cosmetic damage to the top of your device (especially a Curve with that rubber coating they have on it) if you do not put it into the holster the way their instructions read. It is not major, and will probably take time to cause noticeable scuffs, scratches. But after a little while, I ease up on my picky'ness of making sure the phone stays in perfect condition.

Hope that helped.

I second John-Fox's statements... I have had Seidio spring clip holsters for my last several devices and love them. They are by far the best holsters I've found. They do cause some scuffing on the top of the devices, but that is a small price to pay for the security, quality, and features.

5 stars to Seidio for making such great products!

PS, I haven't gotten a holster for my Bold yet, but I plan to get a Seidio spring clip very soon.... the stock leather holster the Bold comes with is atrocious

Thank you both. Specifically, will the scuffing occur on the top of the device, or in the front on the silver trim?



In terms of features, both stock holster and Seido mute the device when holstered, both holsters angle, etc. Is there a "feature" of the Seido holster that is unique and should be called out?



I agree, the stock holder is atrocious. I look forward to my Seido device showing off my colorwarepc battery cover

One more question...

Considering we all agree vibrate on the Bold is rather weak, is vibrate somehow enhanced with the Seido case, or is the effect muted even more than when in a stock holster?

Thanks again.

I just received my holster from Seido, and I have a general question to those of you who have used their holsters.

To inset the device, their directions say to slide it in at the bottom, lift the spring clip, and then push the top of the BB into place. Do you guys do this, or do you simply push and snap it into place, without manually lifting the top spring clip?

First of all, this is a quality product. As for your question about installing the phone, I find myself doing both. If I am on the run and just hanging up and installing, I insert bottom first and push the top in and move on without even noticing that I have done this. For what it's worth, I use this holster with the case that comes with it. Great combination, I find myself always coming back to it. Hope this helps.

I have the Seido spring clip for the Bold. To be clear, I got the one that fits the Bold with an Innoskin. To be even more clear, I bought a different skin than the one Seido sells. I simply cannot justify $30.00 + shipping for a skin when a $9.99 + shipping will do. I was worried that it may not fit but it does. I have attached three images of the Seido clip case with the cheaper skin. As you can see, there is a slight "gap" between the screen and the felt backing of the holster. I assure you, however, there is no "play" and the device is securely in place. I'd be curious if the Innoskin offered by Seido that is purported to match the specifications and fit of the clip holster has the same gap. If not, that then suggests the skin is considerably "thicker" than the one I purchased. Not sure if that's a good thing. I'll defer to others on the board that have paired the Innoskin and the Innoskin holster to comment on the fit and function.

As for the directions, I do exactly as the instructions suggest. It's simply better to do it this way and it will become habitual and easy to do over time...just as a gunslinger eventually becomes proficient with holstering their gun. ;) With a skin, I don't believe you will ever have to worry about "wear and tear" on the device directly since obviously there is a layer between the spring clip and the device itself. Whether or not over time holstering the device will compromise the skin itself remains to be seen. I doubt it but if so, replacing a skin is significantly more convenient/cheaper. ;)

What's the difference between Seido's Innocase and Spring Clip Holster? They're the same price.

The innocase is needed if you fit your Bold with their protective skin.

The case is a hard plastic case that goes right on your BB. The clip is a belt clip.

I think porkbuns meant the difference between the Innocase holster and the Spring-Clip holster.

conker is right. The Innocase holster is only meant to be used in conjunction with a Bold that has an Innocase skin on it. The Spring-Clip is meant to be used with the naked device. Looks like the Spring-Clip holster also has a soft-touch rubberized texture, while the Innocase holster makes no mention of it being soft-touch. Could be a harder, plastic feel.

Ah my bad. I keep forgetting they changed the names. They used to be just the spring clip and Seidio case.

I almost responded with the same thing you did until I read it again. Too much use of the word Innocase on Seidio's site!!! LOL
