    Has anyone noticed the top portion of the Seidio Surface case for the droid is starting to leave a scratch mark on the chin area of the phone from sliding it open and closed? Seems like the lower clips are causing this.

    I ordered this case the day it was available on their site. Do you think they have modified it since to fit better?

    One of the main reasons I avoid cases like this. Seidio and scratching devices goes all the way back to the Palm Treo 650. Some things never change I guess. I checked this case out in hopes it would be of much better build but once I saw it I knew to avoid it. I'd never attach a piece of plastic to any of my phones. You are bound to scratch your device up. I always go for a nice pouch case or sleeve.

    do you feel that the sleeves or pouch cases are just too large to have hanging at your hip?

    I don't get the bulky ones with clips. Check out Sena Cases. Best sleeve cases I can find. Used them for all 3 of my iPhones and my Droid.

    I just got mine last week, and I'm not seeing anything like that at all. The only surprise is that it's not a rubbery style case like I expected (and prev. Innocases have been). I do like it. And frankly, if it scratches the unit along the left side of the keyboard, does anyone care?

    A case should not scratch the device, no matter where, it is supposed to protect. Maybe I'm crazy?

    We're sure you are! But that doesn't make you wrong...! I guess for me it just doesn't matter when it's on the keyboard that's tucked away most of the time. I want mine to be protected from drops, mostly. Maybe I'm crazy, too. Oh, wait, yep. For sure.

    I wish someone would release a case that covered the entire phone so that the slider wouldn't be visible or open. That way I'd get great protection with a seamless look. At this point I never slide the phone open so it would work out great.

    Agreed, I would buy a case like this!

    they were nice enough to send me a replacement. we'll see if this is any better. i removed it for now and will just use it without a case for a week.

    Never really noticed it until now, but it doesn't really bother me.

    I have the same problem. Does this happen to everyone?

    I have the Otter Box, it fits like a glove..
    I like how it has rubber buttons on it, it even has a rubber inner case to help against shocks..
    This is the best hard case by far IMO...

    wish i could find a nice neoprene-like sleeve for my droid, similar to the G1 case

    It happens to everyone who slides the keyboard often enough, mine did it too and I removed it, case-less now. I don't care that it scratched it, I just wanted it to be without a case. Those sena slim leather cases look real nice, though.
