First thing we both noted was how soft and yet sturdy the SURFACE Case is. The Case itself comes together from 2 separate pieces that connect in the middle. Personally when I think of a “clip-on” anything I begin to have doubts, fears of the pieces wearing or not connecting perfectly. Seidio stomps this to the curb with a smart over-under clipping mechanism inside the case. You’ll have to apply a good amount of pressure on the outer mid-line of the case while the core is firm & flush onto the actual device to get those pieces loose. Sheer tugging even without the phone will take a lot of strength to disconnect them.
The SURFACE covers all the corners, sides and does so professionally. Rounded off and stylish like the BlackBerry Torch 9850-9860 series itself. One of the biggest complaints with cases that my girl always has, is weather or not they actually protect the top and bottom. This case does so but without a vengeance. It’s not like those “baggy sweatsuits” some cases end up turning your device into just for the right protection.
A big selling point for her, and I noticed this too, was the SURFACE Case clipped into the Holster then she’d clip the Holster into her handbag. I can’t forget the look on her face when I pulled the Holster out and handed it to her! Priceless. I don’t think it was something she had any real interest in. I then back peddled and explained to her than this was not only added protection for her Berry. But it would also put the BlackBerry “to-sleep” saving a ton of battery life. Ladies don’t really like wearing smartphones like us men do. So I was pretty impressed with her when I caught her clipping the Combo into her big ol’ caddy of a handbag.
In an industry filled with accessories, options and such a high demand for a sexy looking smartphone I think Seidio has continued to hold their own. Giving customers, carriers and collectors what they want isn’t an easy task. I go through a lot of cases nowadays, but Seidio has remained a staple on my BlackBerry for a couple years now. I’m happy to have introduced my lady to their wonderful world of style meets needs. No one wants an ugly smartphone, or a broken sexy hunk of broken technology sitting all over the hardwoods.
