Hong Kong based case maker Capdase has come out with a soft shell case for HTCâ€™s flagship smartphone. Is the case as sensational as the device it was meant to cover up?
I love my HTC Sensation, but being the clumsy doofus that I am, Iâ€™ve already dropped it a few times which has caused a couple of dings and dents around the unit. Looking at the damage the drops has caused just makes me want to cry. Fortunately, Capdase has come out with the Xpose, a soft shell case thatâ€™s custom molded for the HTC Sensation.
The reason why I often drop the HTC Sensation is because the thing is just so damn slippery. While the curved, solid aluminum body of the Sensation looks mighty sexy, itâ€™s really not conducive to good handling. Capdaseâ€™s Xpose case solves that problem by adding a thin layer of soft, rubberized material at the back of the Sensation that acts as a competent gripping surface. With the Xpose case on, my Sensation is substantially less slippery than before.
Unlike silicon cases, the surface of the Xpose case isnâ€™t sticky enough that itâ€™ll cause a problem with front pocket storage. With the case on, my Sensation slips easily in and out of my jeanâ€™s front pocket. The Xpose case also isnâ€™t a dust/lint magnet unlike regular silicon cases.
Unfortunately for me, the Xpose isnâ€™t idiot proof, and even though it has made my Sensation less slippery, I have clumsily knocked the phone off a few tables and chairs. This time however, the Xpose is sturdy enough to protect my HTC Sensation from scratches and dents.
At Php 950, the Capdase Xpose case is a good investment. It offers good protection as well as making the HTC Sensation less slippery which is a good deterrence against accidental slips and drops. Oh, I almost forgot to mention it, but the Xpose case comes with a free screen protector. Talk about value for money!
