I'm here to tell you about the new $35 case Seidio sells for the BB Bold called the "Innocase 360"
The other cases I have:
- Otterbox Defender
- Seidio Innocase Surface
- InvisibleShield Full Body shield.
Most would say "man your a case freak" well, their is one thing I cant live without, and it's my blackberry, and I'm a Safety Director for a large Concrete Construction company that works in the Office 50% and in the dirty field 50%. When I'm using my phone for casual or office I need it to be protected from drops and falls and getting scratched up. But when I'm out in the field I need it to be protected from everything. (Hence the Otterbox).
Pretty much the only downside to the otterbox is its size and bulkyness, So when Seidio came out with the new "Innocase 360" I was like sweet, It works with my belt clip that I use for the surface, with the added protection of the keyboard and face, without the bulkyness. Well, I was a bit wrong.
- Full Key protection with a good feel of keys
- Still full access to all the ports like the other innocase's
- Thin so it feels just like the Bold by itself.
- You can barely see your backlit keys through the "keyboard protection"
- The screen protection is a Joke, as you can see in the pictures, It does worse than it does good.
As you can see the reflections between the screens.
Then if you touch the screen, only part of it bubbles up like this, their is no way to seal the whole thing no matter what you do.
Barley any light can get through this thing.
This is after one day of use, you can see the dust inbetween it.
Seidio is nice enough to exchange my 360 for another innocase surface so it's not going to cost me any money and I wouldn never try give them a bad name because of that, I absolutly love my regular Innocase. (I gave my other surface to my dad). I ended up taking off the cheap screen protector just so i could actually see the screen. In the sunlight it reflects off of the screens and you cant see it, It gets dust inbetween it and gets dirty very easily. Their is no way to seal the "screen protector" to the screen so dust wont get in it because its too tight. It also scratches very easily. I wouldnt reccomend this product to anyone. I will so go about using my Innocase Surface for everything day to day, and when I'm working out on a construction site I'll be using my Bulky but indistructable Otterbox.
Hopefully this Helps people with their case purchases.
