Centro Skin Case With Clip Review
The new SPE Centro Skin Case has once again demonstrated the popularity of this type of protection for your smartphone and rapidly (almost instanteously) risen to become the #1 bestselling Centro case.
The Centro Skin Case provides a thick (1mm), smooth and extremely elegant rubber skin (available in Clear, Black and Pink) that has been molded near perfection to fit like a glove around your Centro to protect it against bumps and scratches.
I am also particularly impressed by the overall level of detailing that has evidently gone into the design of this skin case. For starters, the microdots on both sides at the back (detail below left) provide a much enhanced grip for your device and ensures that it won’t easily slip out of your hands as well as providing a very good tactile feel.
Next are all the molded cutouts for the camera and back speaker (above right), the HotSync connector and headset jack at the bottom (below left) as well as the silent slider (below right).
The side buttons (below left) are nicely covered and the cutout for the infrared port and microSD card slot have been carefully and well thought out (albeit Palm really has made it impossible to gain access to the microSD card without removing the battery cover).
Equally well fitted are cutouts for the front speaker and indicator light, the stylus as well as the fully covered navigation keys + 5Way button at the front (detail below right).
The only complaint that I have with the Centro Skin Case is that the profile around the keyboard (detail below) is unfortunately raised instead of recessed which means that your fingers will find it just that little bit harder to hit the keys – particularly if you have large hands.
The kit also conveniently includes two lanyards (a short one for your wrist and a longer one for your neck) which can be easily fitted to your Centro and passed through the skin case.
The SPE Centro Skin Case also features a removable belt clip for those who like the convenience of carrying the Centro by their side at all times. For those who like me prefer to do without the belt clip you can simply remove the connecting screw at the back – leaving an unobtrusive 2mm circular recess at the back. Additionally, I found that this way you can easily fit the skin case in the P6 Pouch Case thus combining the convenience of a side case with the protection of a skin case.
