Epik case

Although Google (or HTC?) give us pretty cute android pouch, it doesn’t give you a peace of mind when you hold the phone or you accidentally scratch the phone to any surface. Can this case be the savior?

I was looking for skin case? or silicone case that I still could see my engraving and Epik was what I found very first on eBay. Plus, it is not expensive—as usual, cheaper when you buy more.

Quality?

There are choices of color you can have. If I’m right, there is a pink one too. I just didn’t pick it since it was out of stock. “It’s not that soft, ” my first reacted after getting this with the expectation of regular silicone cases.

The material is some sort of silicone, but it’s somehow harder than usual iPhone case on the market. You might say it’s good or bad, but it’s ok if you ask me. For overall quality, I would say B+ since it showed signs of laziness? they didn’t really pay attention to all little detail at all, just like most items you get from China.

Honestly I use the gray one, but for the sack of clarity, you can see better in blue. All holes are in well position as expected. you can hit vol+/- and power without any extra effort.

Nexus One, unlike HTC Desire, has no rubberized finish on the back. Thus, when you hold the phone, it can be slippery at all time. Moreover, if you use Nexus One or HTC Desire, you might have noticed the problem when your palm or finger touches on the screen unintentionally since the screen bezel is pretty thin. As a result, you will not able to touch where you want easily as it should be. Fortunately, this case can solve these 2 issues. After wearing this case, your Nexus One will be a bit thicker which is much more comfortable in hand, no more slippery. Also, it will act like a slim border on the side of the screen preventing your unintended finger/palm to register on the screen.

Summary

For solving 2 issues above alone is worth already. Although it might not look as good as Vaja case, it works for me! It’s cheap and again it does the job perfectly =)
