Default Seidio Active for Samsung Galaxy Note LTE

Seidio Active for Samsung Galaxy Note LTE Review





I'll start this review off by saying I've used Seidio products for my two previous smartphones (Htc Evo 4G and Htc Evo 3D) and now for my Samsung Galaxy Note LTE. I use my smartphones constantly and have dropped them on occasion without ever having an issue with my Seidio cases breaking or even really getting scratched.



The Seidio Active for SGN is no different. I've had it on for just under two weeks now, and while I sometimes like to use my phone without a case, the Seidio Active has me changing that habit a bit. The feel of the softcase and the exoskeleton are both beyond comfortable. I've gone back and forth from using just the soft inner case alone and using the softtouch coated exoskeleton as well.



If I like anything it's having options, and this case offers quite a few. You can get the exoskeleton in black, white, amethyst, royal blue or red. Also having the option to just use the inner case or both depending on what my day looks like is great. The case is thin either way and I've had no issues with this fitting into any pocket of mine. That being said it's got enough thickness and design wisdom to withstand any drop you can realistically come up with short of running it over with an 18 wheeler.



To wrap this up I'll say that my faith in Seidio and their products is intact and I am already looking in to getting the exoskeleton in white to go along with black one that I've been using, and even might try to hit up the Seidio Active w/ Kickstand that is coming soon on their website seidioonline.com. Keep an eye on this blog as I'll probably write a bit about those and future products as I'm a big accessory nerd. Thanks for reading!

I was waiting for Otterbox to come out with a case and even though they said they are working on one I decided to buy one of the Seidio cases because I would like something now and I like to have my phone clipped to my belt instead of in my pocket.

Yeah they make good stuff, and I've had the belt clip for my Evos before and they're good quality.

Looks like it would offer great protection, but a little bulky for my tastes. Although I can see getting one for those times when I want my phone extra protected.

It doesn't feel that bulky to me, but I totally understand. It's nice having a thin device. Adding a case will always make it thicker.





FYI I upgraded to the Seidio Active w/ Kickstand in the Glossed White color. Here's what it looks like:





I really like it in white with the kickstand much more than the plain black and no kickstand. My first Android was the original Evo so it feels like a super size version of that. Plus it still has the same protection of the one I reviewed before, which is great since I sell my phone every year and put the money towards a new one. Highly recommended.
