Body Glove Side Case Review

Impressive New Side Case from Body Glove Enters at Top of Treo & Centro Cases League

Top Treo & Centro CaseAs you know there are few things that can cheer my day more than to have the opportunity to review a great product – one that is both carefully designed and extremely well built as well as practical.

Body Glove Side Case

Today I have the real pleasure to present the new Body Glove Side Case – an impressive Treo and Centro case which has rapidly shot to the top of its league and that offers not only superb design, build and quality but also a perfect “universal” fit to elegantly carry your smartphone by your side.

Body Glove Side Case - Back

You may not be able to immediately appreciate it from these images but this Body Glove Side Case is actually rather ultraslim thanks to both a very low profile belt clip (image below) and a thin rubber material of about 1mm used for entire body.

Additionally, there is also the tactile and visual quality of this case with for example the front flap offering a modern wavy embossed pattern (detail below) and the rest of the body made out of Body Glove’s characteristic smooth rubber.

The designers have not only paid careful attention to the outside but also the inside which is lined with soft black velvet ensures that your smartphone is not only protected agains scratches but also conveniently polishes the device every time it’s inserted in the case.

Adding to the great design touches is the fact that the large front flap offers the most convenient magnetic closure with two strong magnets (detail below left).  This not only ensures that your smartphone is securely strapped inside the case at all time but also that you will be able to quickly insert or remove it when needed.  I have to admit that there is something particular about hearing the magnets “click!” when you close it.

Even more impressive for me is the fact that thanks to two elastic bands (detail above right) stitched into the sides this Body Glove Side Case can really provide a perfect fit for a range of Palm smartphones including the small Centro, ultraslim Treo Pro as well as the Treo 800w and Treo 680 pictured below (it would also fit the Treo 750, 755p but unfortunately their rubberized body does not slide properly into this case).

Body Glove Side Case - Universal Fit

Overall this excellent new Body Glove Side Case offers not only a very elegant and modern solution to carry your smartphone by your side but it is also extremely well built, feels great in your hands and happens to deliver one of the most convenient ways to access your device thanks to its large magnetic flap.

Will the case fit the 680 if you have the Seidio 2400Ah battery with the expanded back?

I'm afraid that this doesn't fit the Treo 680. I just received mine yesterday and I could not get the flap to properly close over the T680 - the T680 was too wide.

It looks nice, but I suggest T680 users stay clear and that you update your review with a warning.

I'm returning mine. Shame.

Does not fit the 700p (phone is too thick). Would be a nice case for a thin phone.

The only issue I have with my Body Glove case is that it's so snug that my Treo Pro buttons get depressed when answering the phone... often leading to hanging up on callers. Any advice?

I am really impressed with your review, and I have read this whole matters. Such a very great information you have shared here.
