Accessory maker Incipio, best known for making products that “look as good as they function” released a nice bushel of cases for the BlackBerry Bold 9900-9930 series smartphones. The first I received is from a new series of cases titled DRX!
The first thing I liked about the DRX Case for BlackBerry Bold 9900-9930 series smartphones is it’s striking resemblance to the OEM Hardshell, another favorite of mine! Notice I did use the Black/Pink for the promo but choose the Matte Black/Glossy Black for myself.
DRX is a semi rigid soft shell case with polycarbonate frame. The semi rigid material at the core and hardshell embedded with a polycarbonate frame DRX really starts the push towards tough and sexy. There’s a total of 3 color options besides Black/Pink, they offer Matte Black/Glossy Black and a Gray/White option.
Inside the box: 1 DRX impact resistant case, 1 surface protector [screen protector], 1 cleaning cloth, & 1 smoothie card. Installation is refreshingly simple. Users can choose to use the screen protector or save it. I always save mine, but the cleaning cloth and smoothie care are present for an easy ride while applying the surface protector. Now once you’ve gotten past this step, your ready to fit your Bold into the DRX Case. By the look of it I was a little unsure how it would fit together. One piece can be a huge nightmare. Luckily Incipio products are part of the “Built for BlackBerry” seal of approval and my Bold slipped right into the DRX for a perfect fit. Minimal struggle.
Road testing has gone very well also. I always want the black cases but sometimes it’s a gamble whether or not fingerprints will play a major factor or not. The glossy area does get a little printy, but nothing more than the 9930 itself. Then the area surrounding the device is all matted so it always maintains a clean brushed appearance.
Slips in and out of my pocket nicely. All the buttons have a thick feel from the polycarbonate, yet I’ve not had any issues placing slight flex on any to get a response. The cutouts for usb and earphones are precise, no issues with even 3rd party plugs or headphones.
The DRX Case is priced at $34.99 at http://www.myincipio.com. That may be a little rich for some users, but it’s about the average price for any BlackBerry 7 case. All in all this is a snappy comfy case for anyone who loves to keep style right but demands a great protective wear to go with it. We’ll surely look forward to our next few Incipio case, and you should too. They’ve made big improvements over the last couple years and it shows! Grab yours at the link below.
