Droid: Seidio case vs generic Verizon case?
I know there's a ton of case threads and browsed through some of them....looks like this Seidio Surface and some Body Glove case keeps coming up as good ones.
I've got some two-piece case I got from the online Verizon store shortly after I got my droid. I can't actually find what it is - my receipt email calls it a "Snap On Silicone Covers - Black" but I can't find it online in their store anymore. The closest looks like the "snap on back cover", but I've got a front cover, too. Anyway....
I've got a couple of complaints with the case. One, it seems kinda bulky. Are all cases like this going to be this way, or can it be better? It sounds like the Seidio is supposed to be thin. Is it because it's a "hard" case, or at least a rubbery plastic? I've seen iphone cases that are more like rubber skins rather than snap-on cases....is there something like that for the Droid?
My other complaint which really annoys me is that I got tired of the case and decided I was just going to go without. I took it off, but it apparently has slightly pulled up the slider from the way the two pieces clip onto their parts. Basically I take the case off and the sliding part of the phone "clicks" on one side when I press it....like it's stretched out some spring or something. I don't know if there's anything I can do about that or not. But now I think I pretty much need some sort of case.
I'm wondering if there's something better out there, or if I should just leave well enough alone and keep what I have. Any thoughts? Thanks!
just made the switch from the vzw rubber case to Seidio
I actually used the VZW case since day one (which incidentally was the first day that the droid was available around 7am.
I liked it a lot, but it was hard to pocket and the top row of keys was hard to access.
I bought the Seidio to have something that looked a little nicer and to see if it was less bulky. It is a little less bulky. Not too much, but it really helps in the pocket. The VZW case was so rubbery that it didn't seem free to move in my pocket at all. The Seidio is less so. It's a hard case with a velvety/rubbery coating. I got ordered the red model, but it's more of a maroon shade. (I ordered from Amazon.)
I'm pretty pleased with the Seidio, but I also liked the VZW case. I think that If I were to drop my phone, I'd rather it be in the VZW case for the fall, but I'd rather pocket the Seidio--and I think that it would protect the case too, but probably get boogered up by the fall, where the VZW case would not.
