    ok - so i got my Sena case the other day and have been using it. It was decent enough but the case doesn't sleep my phone and i push buttons as i am pulling it out of the holster... returning tomorrow because the Seidio is EXACTLY what i wanted and it looks great too...

    the things i want to stress here are:

    1 - Spring-clip for quick access
    2 - “sleeper” function to conserve battery works!
    3 - Compatible with Extended Batteries (eventually)
    4 - Excellent construction and feel
    5 - No button presses or dropped Storm

    1 - the spring clip works flawlessly with my Phantom Skinz on - the fit is snug and the belt clip is close to my belt line so it doesn't look like it's hanging out in the wind... better yet, it's adjustable. this means i can swivel the case for when i get into my car and need to buckle my safety belt at will. the spring clip is very secure also - i was surprised at this because the phones i have seen with this type of clip often look like they are just hanging out there - this one is GORGEOUS.

    2 - sleeper function! YAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOO - my battery life has been extended significantly from this feature ALONE! the Sena case, while very plush, did not work with the Storm for this function. I might get 2 days out of a charge now

    3 - compatible with extended batteries - when they come out, i'm buying one as i will be using my phone more often during business meetings and such - a large plus for me

    4 - excellent construction and feel - this case feels so luxurious. everything about it from the felt plate for the touch screen to the rubberized plastic exudes class and premium quality. the clip is latched based so it wont come off my belt of the phone is tugged on. and it's subdued matte black so it isn't flashing people all over the place either. that was another plus as my Sena case seemed a bit gaudy.

    5 - no more button presses or dropped Storm - what else can i say? the way in which i remove my Storm from the case significantly reduces the likelihood of me dropping the phone, and in the process, there are no buttons pressed. one could not ask for more in a business oriented or casual user case IMHO

    here are some pics i shot as well

    Thanks for the review. I have pondered the $10 to get a regular holster vs. the $25 to get the Seidio. Sound like the extra is really worth it!

    I think it is - the plastic has such a rich feel to it and is so thick - it feels solid - like my phone was built into it or something.

    The felt keeps my screen nice and clean too

    wonderful product, worth every penny. ***** HIGHLY recommended

    Only problem with this holster, like many other plastic clip ones is that the "aluminum" style frame on the storm will be worn out quite quickly from removing it in and out.

    I've used the case since the release day of the storm, and on the bottom by the green send key on the chrome/aluminum frame, it is starting to wear and turn black. (I guess its just painted or something of that nature)

    Seems to me that the Phantomskinz he's got installed would prevent that. And Actually, while I'm here, a couple of questions. I've got a phantom set on the way, how are you liking it a few days out?

    Also, a newbish question, but I DID search: This will be my first Blackberry, and I'm curious as to whether one can send/receive calls as normal using a bluetooth headset while the phone was in sleeper mode in the holster. Can anyone confirm/deny? I assume the answer is yes, but I'd like to know for sure before I invest in the clip.

    We just started shipping this holster on 12/1, so I don't think you're talking about our product.

    No, Im talking about your product. Unless you have figured out a way to make the Storm levitate in air while being holstered, you cant stop the fact that the frame will start to wear down because of friction.

    Quick Question:

    On my old phone the "holster" released from the belt clip. During winter time Normal movement would casue my Seatbelt to release the "holster" beneith my longer winter jacket (without me being aware of it) sending my phone crashing to the ground as I stepped out of the vehicle.

    Would I be likely to experiance the same problem with this case?

    I wound up purcahsing a magnesium case for my Treo, just so the the case could take the lion's share of the impact, but that isn't a practicle solution for a touch/click phone.

    no your not talking about the seidio product. Seidio's was not even out until 3 days ago so how have you been using it for weeks? you may have the BB or whichever other one they sell at Verizon or Best Buy.

    Chris,

    While I can't speak to the quality of the Storm's finish, I can tell you that our holster is designed specifically to try and prevent this type of damage.

    Our spring clip at the top is designed to be lifted instead of being held by simple tension. This allows the user to lift their device from the holster as opposed to "dragging" it out.

    We also coat the entire holster with a soft touch material for even more protection.


    BTW...we are working on that levitation thing, but haven't quite figured it out yet!


    Thanks,

    I don't like any of these "love handle reminder" type holsters. If the top edge is this high relative to your belt, the phone, or parts of the holster to be more precise, are always digging into your side. Very uncomfortable, and I have decidedly small love handles. I'd imagine seriously overweight people would want to chuck these things as far away as possible! Maybe people with wide-set hip bones and no waist at all would find them pleasant to wear.

    I carried this same style holster for over a year with my Samsung i760. It was a quality product and rotated to horizontal for the love handle crowd.

    I've had that happened to me before, there's nothing more devastating than stepping out of your car and hearing.....*CLUNK* as your phone nails the blacktop. This holster looks pretty solid and you can rotate it as you need so it stays comfortable while you have a seat belt on.
