Seidio Surface with Metal Kickstand Combo Case for iPhone 6 Review
      #47117 - 10/07/14 05:26 PM

Fans of the Seidio Surface with Metal Kickstand cases should be happy to know that the cases for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are currently available. The Seidio Surface case is very slim and form fitting. The two part case is easy to install and remove, and the best feature on this case is the metal kickstand that makes watching movies and video chatting on the iPhone 6, especially on the 5.5" iPhone 6 Plus, a joy. The "Combo" version comes with a belt holster in addition, though the holster is back-ordered for the iPhone 6 Plus at the moment while it's readily available for the 4.7" iPhone 6.


The Seidio Surface with Metal Kickstand for the iPhone 6/6+ has a great design for ease of use. The case comes in two parts and you can disconnect the parts to install and remove it. This method of installation will never make you worry whether you might scratch the phone's metal sides while putting the case on or taking it off. The exterior of the Seidio Surface has a nice layer of soft touch coating that both feels very soft and better the grip of the slippery phone. The interior has soft micro fiber lining that will prevent any scratches that might occur when you handle the phone in and out of the case.

For those who want to clip their phone to their belts, bag's shoulder straps or other places, the Seidio Surface Combo gives you a light yet sturdy holster with belt clip. The holster itself also has soft fabric interior lining that's kind to the display of the phone when you dock it into the holster. The belt clip has good stiffness and more than strong enough to hold the weight of the phone plus the Surface Combo. The holster snaps on to the Surface case's back to securely shut. The Surface Combo (the case and the holster together) weighs 2.8 ounces.


The Seidio Surface case has generous cutouts on the sides of the phone to leave the power button, silence slider and volume buttons open for easy access. The case has fitted cutouts on the bottom for the Lightning port, audio jack and mic, and the speaker. You should have no trouble using the 3.5mm audio jack with headphones or earbuds. The case has a large cutout on the back that gives plenty of room to the rear camera and flash. The hard shell case is quite thin, so the phone should be able to connect with docking stations, radio and alarm clocks and speakers that have some spare room and slightly raised Lightning port.

The Seidio Surface case has a nice metal stand that folds flush with the case when it's not in use. The metal stand has a spring that pops the stand out at 45-degree angle in landscape orientation. The stand keeps the phone very steady and it's particularly welcome for the iPhone 6 Plus since it's quite large to hold in one's hand while watching long movies or during long video chats.


The Seidio Surface with Metal Kickstand case comes in incredible 8 colors including common colors such as black, blue, orange red and purple, as well as designer colors such as Orchid, Electric Blue and Gold. The color selection is exciting and should have something that attracts everyone's attention. The case is ultra thin and light, and when combined with the holster, it gives you the option to clip it to other accessories and carrying solutions. The case can protect the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from scratches, pokes and bumps and with the holster, it can provide good shock protection. The two-part case design wins against many slim cases that are form fitting but hard to install and harder to remove. The metal stand is an excellent addition to the protective case, and if you don't wish to use the stand, Seidio also sells a Surface case without the stand.
