The Samsung Fascinate is one sexy phone with a smooth yet slippery plastic surface. One wrong move and the next thing you know you're helplessly watching as it transitions from sexy to scratched. Enter the Seidio Innocase II Surface: a high-quality case designed to add moderate protection while retaining the Fascinate's sleek appearance.

Assembly is quick and easy. There are two interlocking pieces that slide snuggly into place. Each 1 mm piece is constructed from durable soft-touch plastic and lined with felt for additional protection during assembly and removal. The soft-touch plastic gives you the grip you're looking for and feels oh so good in the hands.

 

There are cutouts for the the volume and power buttons, mic, speaker, USB port, 3.5mm jack, lanyard, and camera. The bottom raises the camera lens and speaker away from flat surfaces. The raised speaker provides the additional benefit of improved audio quality. If you're like me and carry a spare battery, you'll be happy to know that a push and slide of the bottom piece allows for quick and easy removal.  Overall I was pleased with the quality and appearance of this minimalistic case. If you're looking for a nice mix of style and protection; you can't go wrong with the Seidio Innocase II Surface for the Fascinate.   

The Seidio Innocase II Surface for the Samsung Fascinate comes in five colors -- black, blue, burgundy, amethyst and pearl white -- and is available in the the Android Central Store for $27.95. We've got more pics after the break.
