Good Protection, Not Too Bulky
on April 29, 2012
I usually go with OtterBox but, it appears they will not be making a case for the Nokia Lumia 900 4G Windows Phone, Black (AT&T) so, I purchased this case based on my prior experience with Ballistic for my Samsung Infuse 4G Android Phone (AT&T).
The case is a two-piece design that is simple to install and remove and fits snugly around the phone. The first piece is silicone rubber with cutouts for the camera/flash, headphone jack, mic, usb and speaker and covers for the volume, power and camera buttons. The second piece is a molded polycarbonate shell with a dimpled surface (like a golf ball) that wraps around the rubber layer and has cutouts for the camera/flash and function buttons.
The Ballistic SG case appears to offer a moderate degree of protection from incidental dropping, e.g., from your pocket or from a desk, without adding too much bulk and actually provides a better gripping surface thus reducing the chance of actually dropping your phone from your hand. The case extends beyond the front of the screen so, in the event of a drop, the screen is protected from direct contact with the ground unless it lands on an uneven surface.
A kickstand or clip option would be nice but, overall, I would recommend this case.
