I saw this Pop! Case a few weeks back and my first thought was, “I must have it!” I didn’t request a review copy or wait patiently. Nope. Just went right over to http://www.case-mate.com and ordered one. Soon as the case arrived, about 4 days later I didn’t waste any time. I popped my Bold out of the Black OEM case and easily equipped the new Pop! Case.
Not until about about halfway through the day did I begin to realize that this Pop! Case had the same love for fingerprints and smudges as the actual Bold has. That bummed me out a bit. I choose the black one because the white one I have for the PlayBook began showing scratches a bit too fast. I guess nothing could be too good right…
The big wins here are the 2 layers molded into 1. The feel of the durable rubber casing around the sides combined with the sleek lightweight plastic across the back from top to bottom. Reminds me of a great pair of sneakers. The one’s you put on with your favorite Lucky jeans and feel like you just kissed a girl for the first time! I just want to show it off. I want to be vein and see who’s looking.
They also did a fantastic job with depth of this case. I was expecting a much bulkier shell considering the PlayBook cousin that I’ve had ever since unboxing my tablet. But it’s not a big pocket thief. It’s a simple drop in the pockets: front or back, murse or purse.
Cutouts for plugs, buttons and detail is extremely high quality. I’d compare it to the always impressive Case-mate Barely There Case here. Nothing about the design and manufacture feels cheap. They didn’t rush these babies out by any means. I haven’t once accidentally pressed any side buttons, or the lock nor are they difficult to press down.
Installation is a breeze. Just ease your Bold in from right to left. The phone does not feel lose or foreign. They marry up like the Cat in the Hat. Case-mate placed a $30.00 price tag on this one, and I have no remorse in spending the 3 tens on it. From any angle (looking at the front) you can see the silver from the Bold shining through with the 2-1 molded rubber enforced all the way around. It’s difficult not to get lost in it’s attractive modern design.
