The SURFACE Extended provides an amazingly thin layer of protection to the sides and back of your HTC ThunderBolt without adding the excessive bulk of other cases. It consists of one piece that snaps over your OEM 2750mAh or Seidio Innocell Extended Life Battery and is finished with Seidio's signature soft touch coating to provide a great feel and better grip without attracting lint.
Top customer reviews
Some points I liked:
1. Adds next to no bulk to the larger phone
2. Gives the phone a smooth texture that makes pocketing easier
1. Top and bottom of the phone are unprotected, which I have seen many thunderbolts scratched from drops right at the top and bottom. Also scratches seem to happen around the top speaker bezel.
2. Unlike the standard surface cases, this is a one piece design. Seems to me that if it is dropped the phone may come out, hence defeating the purpose.
3. Kickstand - everyone seems to knock on Seidio's kickstands. I don't mind them except it is stiff to get in and out which deters me from using it.
4. Price! For the price you can spend a few extra dollars like the other reviewer said and get the Active series.
All in all I ended out sending mine back (which its been 2 1/2 weeks and I still haven't heard anything). I did order the Active series case which seems to be a better overall case. Perhaps I would have gotten the Convert as well considering the surface case is included in the Convert series.
It is nice to have a more structurally sound (last one had some major dents) replacement with a working kickstand after being without one for four months.
I'm super happy that I got such a good deal on my replacement that beats any discount Seidio was willing to offer me, since the original item is no longer under warranty. This seems to be the real deal, just didn't get it direct from Seidio.
Really, don't get this case, unless you're using it with convert or stuck with it because of fewer extended battery options.
I do feel better, when using my waterproof bag that I can fit it in it with this case, so at least it isn't naked.
Yesterday, I dropped my Thunderbolt for the first time from a height of about 5 ft. The case came off as well as the battery cover but I snapped everything back in place and went on my way. For that kind of protection, I give it 5 stars.
