    I've seen this asked (within a thread) but no answer yet..

    As far as drop protection, do you think the added "give" of the silicon case may offer better bump/drop protection over the Seidio case (which I loved my past ones)

    I have both the hard glossy silicone case and the seidio case. I think the silicone might be a little more useful in regards to drop protection because as you mentioned it has that little bit of give.

    i'll sell you glossy for 10$ shipped if you want.

    I prefer the look/feel of the seido, plus my fiance bought it for me so i have to use it haha. ;)

    I use the hard silicon case from verizon. Gives it a nice feel and IMHO better bulk to the phone.

    I've had a Seidio case before (on my Storm) and the clips eventually broke. It was a pretty common problem on the Storm forums, although Seidio customer service is EXCELLENT and will get you a new case ASAP.

    This time I went with the hard silicone, my girlfriend has it on her iPod and I love the material.

    I love the silicone case. only downside is the added weight to the phone, but then I used an old original iPod belt holster and it fits like a glove. Perfect combo.

    n00b question since I've never used a case on any phone before.

    What's the Seidio case made of? Is it a hard plastic?
    I like the look of the innocase II and I like the holster idea just a bit hesitant.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your comment! The Incredible case has interlocking halves instead of clips. So they are durable and shouldn't have any issues. Here is a good shot of our Nexus One case:

    [​IMG]

    Our Innocase II Surface is a two-piece slider case that is made out of hard plastic and our signature rubberized coating. The inside features a soft felt lining that protects the device against dust and debris that might get in between the case and phone.

    Regards,

    Do the halves only have the interlocking mechanism on the back? - 'cause the instructions mentions clips on the side too

    I just got my Seidio case today. I didn't see any clips on the sides. Just a tab near the center of the bottom half and a notch for it on the top. But it doesn't seem to need any. I actually had trouble getting it apart again before I read the small faq card that comes with it. Pull and wiggle all you want but its not coming apart unless you press gently where the tab is on the bottom and slide the top off :)

    I highly recommend this case. Great fit, lightweight and feels tough enough to take a few drops on the concrete. Also like how there are several different colors available even though I still went with black. The soft touch feel is nice bonus as well. Originally bought a silicone one at Best Buy with my phone but I hated it. Just felt to soft and squishy. But I needed a case to protect it until something better was made. This is definitely it!
