    I've been using Seidio products for quite a few years now on my phones. It started back with the Blackberry Pearl. Since that first experience, I had decided that this was a brand of protection I was going to use on all future phones. Of course, that didnt keep me from trying others as well, just knew it would be the one I would keep.

    Most recently I picked up a Motorola Atrix to replace my Nexus One. The whole time I had my Nexus One it was shielded with a Seidio Innocase cover. Unfortunately, when I picked up my Atrix there was no Seidio available, yet. In that time I decided to pick up the Otterbox Defender case. I had never used an Otterbox case before but after receiving the product, I deemed it way too bulky for my daily use and promptly put it back in its packaging.

    My favorite parts of Sedio Cases are that Innocase II Surface is designed to protect your phone from scratches and drops while barely adding to the size of your phone. Many users find their sleek design easier to grip than a bare device due to their signature soft touch finish, which enhances the look of the phone and does not attract lint. This is huge for me because I put my phone in my pocket most of the time. This case easily slides in and out of the pocket without sticking or creating more bulk. The Otterbox had a soft rubber outer seal which stuck to the pocket and constantly needed cleaning of lint.

    One of the other design features I've become quite fond of is their unique slide-in design which makes putting on and removing your case easy. One piece slides on the top and then the other the bottom and they form a clasp that holds together. This is much easier than the Otterbox which is multiple pieces with an additional piece surrounding all of that. If you ever have to do a battery pull, you know how frustrating it is when you cant get your case off easily. That being said, the Innocase is not simple protection either like a cheapo case you pull off the rack and fit the phone into.

    I also liked that I have full access to the screen. I dont use any screen protector and the edges of the Innocase are raised just enough that if I placed the phone face down, the screen wouldn't touch. However, if I chose to put on some type of film, it wouldn't inhibit the use of the case either. Unlike with the Otterbox, it has the film built into the case which would sometimes create blotches where it touched the screen.

    When using the case it immediately felt comfortable and while I noticed slightly more material to grip the phone with, I was still able to use all the buttons with ease. The fingerprint reader opening is designed so that the finger easily slides in the same manner as without the case, yet still protects it. The volume buttons were easily manipulated as well and all the ports were very accessible yet clearly protected.

    The only downside to this case, and pretty much any other case out there, is that it does need to be removed in order to fit into a dock. I have the standard dock and no matter what angle I tried, the phone with the case on wont fit. Again, this is a situation where having an easily removable(yet sturdy) case is a lot less frustrating than a more difficult one. Especially if you're using the dock every night.

    EDIT: As pointed out by another member, the dock DOES work. I had no clue the base of the dock pops out to allow more access to the USB pin via phones with cases. So even with the case on, it WILL work on the bedside(standard) dock.

    Overall Im very happy with this case and is the one I've been waiting to come out for the phone. The other nice thing about the Seidio cases is their matching holster. These are just as slim without the bulk. Plus the have the ability to lock the phone into the holster, thereby eliminating accidental removal.

    There might be other designs or knockoffs of this product, but there really is only one Innocase.

    Please find pictures below comparing the case with the phone, my old Nexus One with a Seidio Innocase II and an Atrix Otterbox Defender case.

    Great review!

    I'm a huge fan of the Innocase Surface, having used them on each of my last 3 phones.

    No, it doesn't ship with one. Although Seidio makes a screen protector for the Atrix, it's not my personal favorite.

    My Atrix is the first phone I've owned with "Gorilla Glass". I figure it's more likely to shatter before it will scratch, so I've decided to forgo a screen protector.

    So far, so good....

    I have just replaced my cheap case purchase with the Atrix by a new one. Based partly on your review and others here on AC. I chose the Otterbox for everyday protection. What amounted to overly bulky for you, was just what I was looking for... I live a more rough & tumble type of life than most, so the rubber siding and extra bulk was welcome.

    However, I am determined to purchase a Seidio case also, as soon as I can spot a local vendor that carries it. I can hardly see myself packing the Otterbox-clad phone in a wedding reception... The Seidio case, however looks like it is sufficiently discrete for that purpose.

    Thanks for the review.

    Anyone know if the Innocase II works with the lapdock?
