Seidio Innocase Active: Intro: So, at the time of this review, this case has only begun shipping this week. In my case, i had purchased (via pre-order) the case last week, and it shipped to me this week. Unlike other cases, this case is actually two separate pieces. So, how does it rate? Lets find out. Shipping and Packing: This case was shipped from Seidio, out of TX using USPS going to NM. For some reason, USPS managed to take 4 days to get across one state - do not choose the USPS shipping option if you want an order in reasonable time. The case itself was packed in the "typical" clear Seidio packaging, and said packaging was shipped in a compact cardbox box. The only other thing shipped with the case was the receipt. In this case, the box did not have any packing insulation, but its safe to say it didn't really need it either. The case itself also ships without any installation instructions, but they aren't really needed either. Installation: There isn't too much to installing the case. To install, simply wrap the phone in the base rubber layer, and then clamp on the harder overshell. There isn't any kind of "click" to let you know it has attached, and should not require any effort to take off the case. Fit and Finish: The base soft layer feel quite nice, and while thin, doesn't feel like it can't provide protection. As well unlike other Seidio cases, the case should no scratch a phone thanks to the soft layer. The hard layer fits perfectly flush with the soft layer, and creates a very nice package. While it is obvious that the two are separate pieces, they fit very well together. Overall Impressions: Not too bad overall. The case does not add much bulk at all, which may be good and bad; the phone still feels compact, but the minimal case material may lead to protection issues. So, the good: Very little risk of scratches or dings happening on the back of the case. The camera is well protected, with the lens winding up slightly recessed behind the case. The camera, flash, and rear speaker should no be effected in any way by the case. The same can be said for the USB port, with the opening big enough easily accommodate any USB cable you fit (some have large plastic blocks). This case should not interfere with any screen protectors, and should not result in any pushed up corners, etc. The volume keys are still very easy to access, and press very nicely. And the bad: This case offers no protection for the screen. The top of the case barely, barely sits above the screen, and wont elevate it enough o keep it off things on a table or such, should you put it face down. The power button is now very hard to press, and requires a good amount of direct force to push down now. The case cannot really be used without both pieces. If for some reason you want the hard piece off, you may as well take off the rubber piece as well, since it will barely stay on without the hard back. Wrap-up: Overall, this case feels nice, and should do some decent protecting. There obviously isn't $30 worth of material here, but there are very few good cases that cost less - this is probably as good as other cases out there, and should do a good job. I hope that i never truly test its protection value, but if i do, I will report back. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask!!
