Seidio Innocase Review (GREEN) UPDATED 56k BEWARE
I will be doing reviews and testing for Seidio products and received my first one to start with. ( Admins if you would like verification I do have that available ).
It is the Green ( Or Saga as they call it ) Epic 4g Case. I have provided a couple of pictures and will be posting a full review today with more photos to come. Possibly may do a video to show the sliding action since that has been a big question among the cases currently out.
Currently I'm going to be testing the sliding mechanism restriction, phone damage if any, and a few other things.
Seidio Innocase EPIC 4G (GREEN) Review
From first impression, the Seidio Innocase for the Epic 4g has a great feel all around the case. The rubberized no slip grip works wonders, yet still has a smooth to the touch finish. All buttons and microphone are completely accessible without restriction.
With the case attached to the Epic 4G there is NO restriction on the sliding mechanism. Now Seidio did a surprising design that many manufactures have not attempted. For the bottom portion of the case, the attachment clips are on each corner yet they are raised slightly from the rim of the case, this allows a very small opening for the case to move freely. Addition to that, the top cover has the attachment clips mounted on the top and bottom. Due to both these features – Scratching of the keyboard is long gone and smooth sliding stays.
Installation and Removal:
Install was very basic, the case clipped on smoothly and is simple enough to remove incase of a reset, memory card, and battery removal.
The case is thin compared to most out there. After installing the case there was not much added to the bulk of the phone. In my opinion this gave a the phone a better look with a case due to how thin it is.
The green I had to admit is beautiful – It is a true Saga but can be looked upon as a light forest green.
For this I used my second epic as it is my test phone for software and such. To meet the standards of daily use, I tested the phone while out at a Mall, Movie theater, Restaurant, and outside on trails. This allows different areas and different types surroundings for testing.
After Dropping the phone on several occasions and from different heights and on different material ( 1ft, 3ft, 5ft, 6ft) - The case never came off and surprisingly the case is almost un-touched. The phone was fully protected and no damage was done.
There have been questions if the case will fit with a Seidio Screen Protector, Phantom Skinz, Invisible shield, and 3rd party brands. I tested the case with phantom Skinz – Tight fit but still works great. Seidio Screen Protector – Fit perfect, Invisible Shield - The case fit like a glove. 3rd party skins provided the same results.
If there are any questions please feel free to post. Other colors and products coming soon.
