Mobi Products Hard Shell Case

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.

Verizon Fascinate case review: Mobi Products Hard Shell Case

I used to have this case and my wife still has it on her fascinate. While it is great when it is on the phone, it is almost impossible to take it off without snapping the tiny plastic clips that hold it together. This made it unusable for me and i had to switch cases.

Bought a similar item from amazon. I agree that these are really hard to take off without being broken. It does feel nice in the hand though.

I have this case on my Fascinate and there is one thing to mention, the bottom of the case impedes a little bit on the buttons. So, the buttons don't always work when you try to press them. The case is nice otherwise, great feel and look. After a removing it a few times, it does get easier to remove. The opening for the screen button is great and makes it easy to press the screen button, while protecting from accidental presses. No issues with using No Lock app and not using a lock screen.
