    I see that Seidio now has the surface case and clip combo up for sale. Anyone try this yet? Does it fit the 64GB Model?

    We are all (well the BN folks anyway) waiting for Seidio to confirm if it fits or not. Another member sent an email to them about the size differences and they are supposed to get back within a few days. Start with post 369 on page 15.

    I ordered one and it had shipped. It is actually in the DFW metroplex with me right now. I will let everyone know as soon as I get it.

    I received my surface case today. I have the 64GB ballistic nylon turbo. It is a tight fit but my phone is snug and I love the feel of this case. It takes a shove to get the case closed. It is difficult to get un snapped to take off. But once removed I saw no damage to the nylon.

    Another note: There is a guy in the case thread that thought it was too tight. I guess we need a third opinion. I'm happy and will be keeping mine.

    I'm the guy from the case thread and I'm happy to say I have changed my mind and plan on keeping the Surface case. I really like the feel and I love the holster so I figured since they probalby will not make a case just for the BN that I had to make it work. I just went and trimmed a little of the felt out from the inside of the top part of the case. (about a 1/4 inch strip down each side and a little above the camera opening)
    Now the fit is much better and I can get the top and bottom to meet and snap together.
    Its a keeper for me!

    Probably well worth the work. To those that have never held a phone in the Seidio Surface case, it's probably unlike any other case you've felt. It's smooth yet sure handed all at the same time. Sleek while protective. And the holster has a quick action, easy in, easy out, yet so secure. There's a good reason this case and holster costs as much as it does. Once you've used one you're ruined for any others.

    How about wireless charging with this case. Had one on my s5 and the kickstand would get hot on a TYLT charger.

    I never had a kickstand on a case before. It is a nice feature and doesn't get in the way when not being used. I really like this case.

    Can you show some pics on what you trimmed out and re-applied? I really dig Seidio cases, especially the Dilex version..

    The Green is where I trimmed and the red circle is where I added a piece to build the snap area up to make it snap better.
    I really don't think you need to trim as much as I did to make it work. I'm really happy with the fit now.

    This is good information. Keep in mind that mine fit. I'm sure there are differences with each phone. This is a great case.

    I have used the dilex case w kickstand on my HTC DNA and currently using the incipio case for my DTBN.

    How does the surface compare size wise and protection wise to the incipio?

    In my opinion... The incipio case is much thicker than the surface. Especially the lip around the screen. It does not have the feel of the surface. Both are excellent cases I'm sure. I did not like the incipio case at all.

    Almost anything is thicker than the Surface. That's part of the beauty of the Surface. It does practically transform your phone into something that can't really be described.

    I wish I didn't need the grip of the Speck because this red one really looks sharp.

    I noticed they are now stating it is only compatible with the red and black metallic versions.

    I got an email from Seidio that indicates their Surface line only fits the Metallic version, although the holster will fit both versions. Bummer deal.

    See the above picture. If you are willing to take the chance - like myself - I am going to make the surface case fit my BN Turbo. I've NEVER had a case on my phone that felt as good or looked as good as the Surface.

    I received the Spring Clip Holster (not the Surface Holster) for the naked turbo today. It fits my Ballistic Nylon Turbo PERFECTLY, with no caveats.
