    I find it hard to buy something I can't touch and see, and try out.

    I currently have a cheap $1 Chinese silicone case on mine. I don't know if I should buy a case for mine or not.

    Has anyone owned an innocase for another phone before? Are they really that good?

    Will it really protect my phone that well?

    $20 bucks seems alot for a case, but they are small.

    And if you think about how much it really can protect your phone against shock (dropping, etc), if it even does, it might be worth it.

    I think they are 30, not 20.

    Seidio makes an absolutely fantastic product. If you don't mind paying for and getting the best, they're the way to go.

    In the 712
    I have bought the Innocases for the last 3 phones I have owned, and pre-ordered one for the Incredible. I love the cases, the way they feel, and their guarantee is great!

    I bought the case/holster combo and can't wait for it to get here next week. Too bad it will be after my 30-day return time for my case/holster that I bought from VZW when I got the phone.

    Read the reviews for them on Amazon. They have fantastic reviews, for all different phones. Seems like the Lexus of phone cases.

    they are pretty good. i had one for my htc fuze and it fit much better than the chinese crap.

    but the verizon soft case is good enough in this case. its half the price as the innocase and does everything the innocase does, which is acting as an impact absorber on dropping the phone.

    so the innocase isnt really going to do anything more except maybe be an mm thinner, but meh.

    I had one for my Blackberry Curve 8330 and I absolutely loved it. I had the shell/holster Innocase combo. I really liked the holster because there was a spring clip at the top that kept the phone in, regardless of the holster's position, so if it happens to get flipped upside down, the phone is secure, unlike the shell/holster combo I got from Verizon. That one doesn't have anything holding the phone in at the top, so if the holster gets turned upside down accidentally (getting caught on your seat belt as you exit), the phone falls out.

    Good analogy! Innocase is the Lexus, Otterbox is the Hummer and Verizon silicone is something like Toyota or Subaru. :D

    So what you're saying is that the Innocase and VZW silicone case are pretty much the same just with different names on them?


    I keed, I know that isn't what you were saying.

    The innocase just seems a bit bland to me. Hopefully sgpstore.com gets some droid incredible cases made that look like the current 3GS cases they have in stock. Some are absolutely stunning.

    lol I won't lie, I didn't know that but it actually kinda helps the analogy out! The Innocase probably is a little better and has a few strong points over the VZW case, but in the end they probably overcharge for what you're getting **looks around for angry lexus owners throwing stones** In reality it's probably pretty close to the VZW silicone case. :)

    I had an Innocase II for my Blackberry and loved it.

    I ordered a purple one for my Incredible because that was the best choice available at the time but Seidio has more color options on their site now.

    Question, since the innocase picture on that site is not there and I have never seen one... Do they have a built in screen protector like the Otterbox Defender series? Because after I get off work I like my Incredible to get Naked!!! I only need the protection at work as I work in construction. And I need a case that will double as a screen protector and still function at work. As, I don't care for screen protectors either... (full naked-ness/"free-ballin")

    I don't see anything about the Innocase that would entice me to ditch my VZW silicone case for it. It looks all right, but hardly anything especially interesting.
