When I purchased my HTC Inspire 4g, I bought the Otterbox Commuter case with it. About a month later, I noticed the shell of the Otterbox had cracked – and I had no idea how.
Earlier this week, Android Central ran a deal on the Seido Convert combo case. All I can say is – I'm glad I did. The first day I had it, I was looking at a diagram of my SUV's power distribution block, trying to fix my dead power outlets. I found the dead fuses, pulled them, and slammed the hood down. Except, it didn't close. So I slammed it again. And again. And then I realized – my phone was still under the hood, on the side of my vehicle. And just got crushed not once, but 3 times. Fearing the worst, I opened the hood to inspect the damage – and there was none! Instant win in my book.
While it's not on sale as much as it was, it's currently 30% off at the AndroidCentral store. I can highly recommend it.
