Seidio Innocase Active X for HTC Inspire

By

The Purchase

We purchased the Active X case from Android Central for $27.95. It took eight days to arrive, but packages from the Southeast aren't exactly quick to get to Utah.

Summary

So far, this gets our vote. The Innocase Active X looks like it will be a great case.

The Real World

April 6th, 2011

This is a two-piece skin case. The first layer is a rubber/polymer skin. It covers the entire back of the phone, except where the camera, flash, etc are. It wraps around the sides, leaving access to the mini-usb and headphone jack on the bottom. The skin covers the power button and volume rocker.

The second layer is a harder plastic skeleton that wraps around the sides/ends of the phone in six places, the corners and midway up the longer sides of the phone. The skeleton comes in four different colors, we went with sapphire blue.

The Active X cover is easy to put on and remove, but I can't see how it would fall off by accident. This case is fits the HTC Inspire and HTC Desire HD, but was tested with the Inspire.

HTC Inspire and the two parts of Innocase Active X

Pros:

  • Has some softer areas that are easy to grip
  • It is slick enough to pocket
  • Wraps around the sides and bezel, should offer good protection
  • Improves the feel of the power button - it is easier to find it by touch
  • The covered volume rocker isn't as prone to being accidently hit, but is still easy to use
  • The skin doesn't cover the notification lights

Cons:
  • None yet, durability is unproven

It has been almost two weeks since the case was put on the Inspire. I thought it would be good to take it off and see how much lint, dust and dirt had collected. I was pleasantly suprised to find it was very clean inside. I like how tight it fits. On the other hand, the "free" iPhone4 bumper seems to collect more dirt than a street sweeper.
