    I will be doing reviews and testing for Seidio products and received my first one to start with. ( Admins if you would like verification I do have that available ).

    It is the Green ( Or Sage as they call it ) Epic 4g Case. I have provided a couple of pictures and will be posting a full review today with more photos to come. Possibly may do a video to show the sliding action since that has been a big question among the cases currently out.

    Currently I'm going to be testing the sliding mechanism restriction, phone damage if any, and a few other things.


    Seidio Innocase EPIC 4G (GREEN) Review

    Review:
    From first impression, the Seidio Innocase for the Epic 4g has a great feel all around the case. The rubberized no slip grip works wonders, yet still has a smooth to the touch finish. All buttons and microphone are completely accessible without restriction.

    Sliding mechanism:
    With the case attached to the Epic 4G there is NO restriction on the sliding mechanism. Now Seidio did a surprising design that many manufactures have not attempted. For the bottom portion of the case, the attachment clips are on each corner yet they are raised slightly from the rim of the case, this allows a very small opening for the case to move freely. Addition to that, the top cover has the attachment clips mounted on the top and bottom. Due to both these features – Scratching of the keyboard is long gone and smooth sliding stays.

    Installation and Removal:
    Install was very basic, the case clipped on smoothly and is simple enough to remove incase of a reset, memory card, and battery removal.

    Appearance:
    The case is thin compared to most out there. After installing the case there was not much added to the bulk of the phone. In my opinion this gave a the phone a better look with a case due to how thin it is.
    The green I had to admit is beautiful – It is a true Saga but can be looked upon as a light forest green.

    Durability Testing:
    For this I used my second epic as it is my test phone for software and such. To meet the standards of daily use, I tested the phone while out at a Mall, Movie theater, Restaurant, and outside on trails. This allows different areas and different types surroundings for testing.
    After Dropping the phone on several occasions and from different heights and on different material ( 1ft, 3ft, 5ft, 6ft) - The case never came off and surprisingly the case is almost un-touched. The phone was fully protected and no damage was done.

    Options:
    There have been questions if the case will fit with a Seidio Screen Protector, Phantom Skinz, Invisible shield, and 3rd party brands. I tested the case with phantom Skinz – Tight fit but still works great. Seidio Screen Protector – Fit perfect, Invisible Shield - The case fit like a glove. 3rd party skins provided the same results.

    If there are any questions please feel free to post. Other colors and products coming soon.

    You dropped your phone on purpose??!!??? I'm glad you did it!! I will never have the nerves to try that!!

    Question, the PT one I bought from Best Buy, I took it back. The edges on the bottom part on the side were a bit sharp. The one I bought from Sprint did not have this issue. It was smooth all the way around.

    Can you confirm that it's not sharp? I'm thinking I got a bad one that wasn't made properly. I took it back for a refund rather then trying to open another one up.

    Haven't noticed any sharp edges on the case at all.

    Apart from the package, did your case itself came in plastic bag? I bought one from amazon that did not. Just making sure is not fake.

    Yes it did, now with amazon they will remove the product from packaging to inspect it due to there wide variety of used and new items. This in truth eliminates a large majority of issues you would normally have.

    Recently purchased a new iPhone for my job. Given the amount these things cost (and that the AT&T insurance for the iPhone 3G is non-existent) I wanted to get a hard shell case to protect my investment as well as a belt-clip holster. After looking through literally every option at the local Apple store and not finding anything I liked (even bought another black rubber case / holster combo that I'm no longer using) I noticed this one on a fellow iPhone user. Here's a quick summary of the key features.

    1. Very solid hard shell case, though slim enough to allow it to mount on most iPod music stands without removing it. Really hate fat phones.

    2. Matte finish with soft rubber-like feel. Easy on the hands, comfortable to grip . . . Not awful shiny hard plastic that feels awful and easily slips out of your grip.

    3. Perfect cut outs for all key buttons, camera, mounting doc, and even for the shiny apple on the back--improvement on all those cases, including the one I bought where you have to press the button through the rubber.

    4. Low profile holster with belt clip. Clip swivels and is short and easy to get onto and off of my belt. Holds on very securely, will not accidentally pull off. Does not add unnecessary bulk.

    5. Spring loaded holster clip allows you to get the phone easily into and out of the holster, but holds phone tightly once you slide it in.

    6. And (my favorite feature) the velvet lined holster back prevents the screen from getting scratched while on the go. Note this is a FACE-IN style holster so be aware if you don't like that.

    7. Also comes in a choice of three muted colors (black, a rust red, and navy blue). Was tempted to get the blue, but went with all black to match the phone.

    I ordered this case and while it is nearly perfect, the back piece is fairly loose and wiggles a lot. Other than that, I love how it's extremely thin and adds almost no bulk to the phone.
