The Talon hard shell case is a very slim and attractive way to protect your Evo 4G. Machined from a single piece of
metal hard plastic, the Talon case fits snugly, yet is easy to put on your Evo, as well as remove. Very lightweight, this case adds no bulk yet completely covers the rear of your phone, keeping things protected and scratch-free. The graphics -- in this case the Cupid's Arrow -- are screened onto the surface, under the final finishing coat. It's not going to rub off. Want more? Let's continue after the break.
The case is machined so that all controls and ports are easily accessed, and the cutouts have rolled edges to keep from cutting or snagging on delicate clothing or fingers. The large camera area cutout encompasses the rear speaker and dual LED flash of the Evo, and another opening allows for easy use of the phone's kickstand. We all love our kickstand! The top and bottom of the case is a bit unique -- they are wide open rather than having cut out areas for the connectors and controls. At first, I didn't care for this style, but really couldn't say why other than aesthetics. As soon as I switched back to a different style hard case and used the power button, I quickly appreciated the open style of the Talon case. While leaving the top and bottom open may look strange, it gives a huge functionality boost.
All in all, it's a case that gives a decent amount of protection to the rear surface of your Evo, while providing great access to connectors and controls. And if a modern upbeat look is what you're after, it fits the bill nicely. The Talon Hard Shell Case for the Evo 4G is available in the Android Central store for $14.95.
