The Mobi Hard Shell Case for the Verizon Fascinate and U.S. Cellular Mesmerize comprises two pieces that quickly snap together around the perimeter of the Fascinate. Each piece is made of durable hard plastic, with a soft touch matte finish.
Once assembled, the case feels tight and secure, without adding significant weight. Without a case, the Fascinate's battery cover scratches easily and feels slippery in the hands.
The Mobi Hard Shell Case provides a solid grip and protects against unsightly scratches. Fingerprints were virtually invisible and the case easily cleaned with a damp towel. Perfectly aligned cutouts provide sufficient access to the buttons, speaker, camera, microphone, headset jack, and micro SD door.
The top front portion of the case covers the Verizon logo. A 1mm protrusion around the perimeter of the screen and camera protect against everyday bumps and contact with flat surfaces. A notch on the right side allows for disassembly. However, I had a difficult time separating each piece. If you swap batteries on a regular basis, this will prove somewhat of a challenge.
Overall, the Mobi Hard Shell case is a solid, stylish product, that feels great in the hands and provides moderate protection. It's available for $12.95 from the Android Central Store. More pics of it in action are after the break.
