A case to be desired
on 31 March 2011
I loathe spending good money on phone cases. The HTC Desire HD left me in a quandry, isn't it false economy to go cheapo on a case, when inside said case is a phone worth £400?
Anyway, putting ethics aside I went onto Amazon thinking that I might just find the right product at the right price, my god was I right. This case is superb. For £4 I can't fault it, literally in any way. For starters it looks great, a mashup of gloss and matt. The non slip grip on the left and right edges really does the job, it's not a novelty. All your phone's functions are usuable with the case on, dual flash, camara lens, loud speaker, usb/charge port, headphone jack - they're all sorted with handy cut-outs. Usually you'd find some of the cut-outs being a bit rough with many low cost cases, no such problems here. Also, the case is nice and snug without being so tight that you genuinely fear having to remove your sim card, and it's actually quite satisfying pushing the four corners of your phone inside the case because it's such a lovely fit.
Ok, the power button is oversized and a little tricky to find, the volume dial is also on the large side, but that's the phone's fault anyway as it's a h-u-g-e dial. Though that's just being picky. This is a great value case, tough with good rigidity, add a screen protector and you're sorted. It's cheap, looks great, and functions just as it should i.e. keeps your Desire (relatively)safe from bumps and scrapes.
