    Seidio Innocase II


    [​IMG]


    Pre-Intro: Seidio Inc was founded in 2002 in Houston Texas. They first started as a company that designed unique and quality products for PDAs, which slowly evolved into Smartphones. They has a passion for innovation and this lead them to become the leading manufacturer of Smartphone accessories.

    They are also very well known for their rubberized cases. Many online forums and review sites have reviewed and vouch for their products. Their products are known to be built for quality and endurance.

    Currently they are carrying a variety of cases for the Sprint HTC Evo 4G, Ultimate Screen Guard Protectors, Spare Batteries, Chargers, Cables, and many more. You can visit their site here for all the details and see a list of their products (Seidio - Your Single Source for Premium Smartphone Accessories).

    Specs of Innocase II for EVO:

    First Impression:

    HOLY!!!, I GOT IT, I GOT IT!!!!! I GOT IT, I GOT IT!!!!!
    The little brown square/cubed box arrived at my door early this morning. I was like "wow", quality service from Seidio. It was very nice of them to send me a review unit early before shipping date. I must take my time to thank them once more.
    As I took the products outside of the packaging, I saw the plastic looking case for the Innocase II. The product showed very well through the plastic container. It was definitely screaming at me to put it one. But before I did that, I took my dSLR camera out and started to snap some shots with my camera.

    One thing that I thought I would do better is move Seidio's Logo a little high above the inside background. You can't really see the Seidio logo from the packaging.

    Build Quality:

    Definitely not cheap. The build quality of the thing was hard. I wouldn't say hard as a rock, but it's definitely hard plastic. It was harder than those cheap eBay cases that you can get for 10 bucks shipped to your door. The rubberized feel of the case was also very good on your hands. It felt smooth and prevented the phone from slipping out of your hand.

    There was no sharp edges around any corner. or on the inside of the case. The inside of the case was very well thought out. They put some felt cloth in the backing so that it will prevent the back cover of the Evo from being scratched up.

    I also tried to double check on their advertised specifications by using a mm gauge to measure the overall thickeness of the phone before and after installing the case. You can find those pictures below.

    Fitment:

    I slipped the case and the Evo and it clipped together nicely and firmly. The right side and the left side of the case fit snuggly together and it fits the Evo flush on both sides.

    The cutout for the LED, Camera, and Speaker is perfect. There's enough space for the all three hardware specs. The camera glass is now protected because the case brings up the level to a point where the camera is indented inside the cutout location. No more worrying of scratching the camera lens when you put it on the table.

    I've also took specific pictures of each cutout location around the case to show you how they go around the buttons, insert holes for the charger, HDMI, power button and volume button. All those edges fit without gap in between and have been well covered with the rubberized layer to protect the phone.

    Forgot to mention, it covers all screen leaks from the edges.


    Protection:

    With the pictures showing 1000 words. I don't need to say much abut protection. They thought out every aspect of the phone do the point where there's felt inserts on the backing to protect the back cover. I wish they did one thing with the inserts though. They should have put the felt cloth all the way wrapping all aspects of the inside including the curved edges of the phone.

    Conclusion:

    In conclusion, the case lives up to the standard of innovation. They really did make a case that protected the phone real well. The design is slick and they did not have to include a bunch of artwork to make it attractive. It also keeps the phone low profile and gives the Evo a high class look while your on the phone or when the phone is sitting on your table.

    People always complain that getting a case at a high price isn't worth it. Or they complain that they want their phone naked. I think the reason they say it is because they can't get themselves to click the buy button. Some people settle down with cheap cases from ebay. But if you want a cheap case, that's your decision. If you want a high quality case built with precision and design to innovate, this is definitely the case to buy. Buying a cheap case from ebay would make your $450 phone look cheap also.

    They offer many different colors, so go to their site to check it out!
    The only thing I wished I had the honor of reviewing was the accessory that came with the case, "The holster". I didn't get a chance to get the holster so I couldn't test if the holster made the case even better. I'm sure the holster would give the case additional points!

    Please enjoy the quality photos of the case.

    This is what you wanted! Congrats. Any idea if they had this color planned or did you have something to do with the release?

    White looks classy!

    i was surprised their team listened to my request about the white case. they told me I can get the exclusive case first when they release it to the public. The case has definitely improved a bit over the black Seido Innocase II that I first reviewed. This case no long has squeeks on the top or the bottom. it's fit more tight than the black one that i had.

    In the last pic, is that a dock replacement for Sense? Does it auto-hide?

    (I don't mean to hijack this thread)

    not gonna lie, "Spider Man" looks pretty awesome.

    But seeing white on the phone, I'm glad I picked the black case.

    The black and white don't go together, especially with the red.

    Haha they just decided to send you another white one? Is it the same Innocase II Surface but in white color? Or is it different material (you said it creaks less). Cool stuff

    maybe it's the white color, but it looks slightly bulkier, especially around the sides of the glass.

    ^^ c'mon, you know light colors add weight to you and darker colors are a thinning color lol.

    I wish they would make a cutout for the front speaker. The current design mostly covers it.

    Current design doesnt hurt or harm my ability to hear at all

    Is it true this design has been changed vs the traditional black? i.e., has the creaking been addressed and adjusted ?

    Maybe Seidio can say something about this

    Short update:

    White case easily stains and get's dirty. My case has a yellow/blue/greenish tint now. Not sure if it came form my jeans, or from something dirty. I used alcohol or water, can't seem to get it off.

    I have already noticed this with the snap on, rubberized case I got from ebay as well. I'm thinking it's from the dye from my jeans, as I put it in my back pocket all the time. I'm not too worried about it though, the case i got was to see how well I like the white before I pulled the trigger and spent $30 on the Seidio. Although after reading you story about the scratching, I'm having second thoughts.

    Wow.. I really want to get this case but the problems just keep on coming.

    what kind of problems?

    If you follow my thread, Seidio Rep here has promptly resolve most of not all issues that are caused with the Innocase II. The rep has agreed to exchange all problematic cases that squeek or have gaps to a newly revised version. The newly revised version is tighter fit with rubberized interior coating to prevent scratches.

    Let me tell you one thing. There's a lot of complaints and issues with scratching, but Seidio took the responses and complaints and revised their cases. I got my replacement already and hopefully this would solve all issues.

    Customer service is great. Give them a go.
