Review: Seidio Premium Leather Side Case

Some of the best cases for Windows Mobile devices are made by Seidio. I have used its holster for the Samsung BlackJack as well as the Rubberized Hard case for the AT&T Tilt/HTC Kaiser. Seidio's Premium Leather Side Case is another great example of their handiwork.

Look and Feel

As the name suggests, this case is made of leather. It�s not real sporty, but it does have a very professional look to it. The feel to me is almost perfect, but it does seem to add quite a bit of bulk to my phone (AT&T Tilt). When my Tilt is in the case there is an extra quarter inch or so of space from the side of the Tilt to the top of the case. The case is wide and rigid enough that I didn�t experience much in the way of buttons being accidentally pushed.

Design

The design is like most of the side cases out there as the phone sits on its side, horizontally, while inside. The case is mostly leather, but there are two strips of elastic that hold the sides of it together, allowing for minimal expansion as you take the phone in and out. The case closes securely with a magnetic clasp. The belt clip is probably my least favorite feature of the case as it is very difficult to get around a belt, but not nearly as hard to remove. The only other complaint that I have is that it�s obviously a universal case in that you can�t get to any of the buttons or ports without first removing the device.

Build

I feel very comfortable trusting my phone to this case. In the event that the case was dropped, there is enough padding in every direction that the phone would sustain minimal if any damage. The belt clip is very rigid and is also covered with leather. I almost would have preferred that the clip have been plastic or something that had a little more flexibility to it.

Conclusion

If you�re looking for executive-level, professional looking case, I can definitely recommend this one from Seidio. The design is practical and efficient. The build is the same quality in both materials and craftsmanship that I�ve come to expect from Seidio. Priced at a semi-reasonable $29.95 (from the WMExperts store), this case is perfect for most all Windows Mobile devices.
