It’s been said you can never be too slim, nor to beautifully-designed.  Seidio’s SURFACE phone case offers proof that it’s true.  It’s slimmer-sleeker-cooler and still offers dual-layer protection and a built-in metal kickstand. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.  And our designers have very good eyes.


1 – Amazingly thin design at just 2mm thick
2 – Precision cut-outs and button covers to increase protection and accessibility
3 – Polycarbonate exterior layer with our signature soft-touch coating
4 – TPU inner layer adds an extra layer of protection
5 – Hexguard™ Technology on the inside of the TPU layer helps dissipate shock in event of impact
6 – Slide-in design for quick and easy installation
7 – Zinc-alloy kickstand for media viewing with magnetic closure when not in use


Whether you’re an active outdoors person or not, there will always be moments when you’re outside of your home or car and Mother Nature comes calling. That’s why Seidio designs and engineers cases for outdoor lovers as well as for those might rather stay inside.

From the slimmest protection available to tough, rugged outdoors defense systems, Seidio cases cover a wide range of safeguarding options in a broad collection of styles. So whether your fair-weather or up for anything, Seidio cases have got you covered.


When people first see the Seidio kickstand in action, they’re often surprised by its elegant looks and simple function. They’re even more engaged and delighted when they feel the finely engineered motion of the kickstand itself.

And when they finally view whatever multimedia content they’re interested in by deploying the kickstand, they usually wonder why someone hasn’t thought of it before. The answer is, of course, not everyone designs and creates products with the obsessive passion of Seidio.


We are referring, of course, to families with children. Whether it’s toddlers or teens, or both, it seems no group of humans is more likely to be involved with smartphone accidents. Who would have ever imagined we’d have to protect our devices from baby bites and drool? Two-year old temper tantrums? And absent-minded young adults?

Well, we at Seidio would. And we did. That’s why we’ve designed products that fit parents’ lifestyles as well as their lives; lives that include the unpredictable actions of children.

If design ignores the needs of people, then people tend to ignore that design. And there are two critical needs people expect their phone cases to deliver on: Stylish form and functional protection. Both of which Seidio over-delivers on, always.

At Seidio, the ideas and concepts associated with great design aren’t just some lofty notions. They are lived and breathed everyday by everyone involved in the creation of our products. The end result is a collection of beautiful cases and accessories that not only look great, they also endure the many hazards of everyday life.

    It feels great. The phone gets a little hefty with the case on, but you’re well protected around the edges and the back. The TPU goes on easily, and then you slide the top part of the shell on, slide the bottom part up and it snaps close together (it may take a little bit of force to get both pieces shunt together).

    The metal kickstand is actually a hinged 2-piece all metal kickstand, which I am very appreciative of.

    The bad news is that, once on, it is [B]VERY[/B] hard to get off phone. The hard shell fits very, very snugly on the TPU that with the phone inside, it is nearly impossible to slide off. For folks who never remove the case, not a problem, but for folks like me, who swap cases for aesthetics, or who periodically remove the case to clean their device, this is going to be a [B]BIG[/B] problem. It took me fighting with the phone for almost 10 minutes before I could get the top hard shell piece off the phone. When I tested it with one of the magnetic plates inside (see below), it bumped the time to almost 15 minutes!

    What I did to make this process easier was to put the TPU on the phone, and then I repeatedly slid one piece of the shell onto the TPU and removed it – basically wearing it down just a tad, making it slide a lot easier onto the TPU.

    I then did the same with the other shell piece – each piece one at a time on its own without the other piece on.

    Now it slides off a lot easier, but is still very snugly encasing the TPU.

    With the belt holster, this feels like a pretty hefty phone – but the protection afforded by the set is unparalleled.

    Had this for a few months now, and the hingre pin in the kickstand has broken, somehow.

    It hasn’t fallen out, so I cannot verify the material in it. But I sure hope it isn’t plastic.

    Contacted CS about the above mentioned issue with the kickstand. Advised to create an RMA, which I did, and was told that it would take 2-3 business days for a reply. However, RMA approved less than 12 hours later, and I had the new product replacement in my hands in less than 3 days.

    Fantastic Customer Service. I’m a fan for life.

    Bit of a late review, but i have to agree with John about this.

    I love Seidio’s cases. Mostly because I don’t like keeping my phone in my pocket anymore… and they’re basically the only company (besides another heavily advertised one i’m sure we all know… who’s cases feel kind of sub-par to me) that designs cases that also use holsters. This case is no exception. Feels nice in the hand, protects the phone as you’d expect it to, and just looks fantastic.

    On the downside… For some reason, the clip on the holster to hold the phone in place seems to be marring the blue finish on the case more than i remember it doing in cases for previous phones i had. The felt pad on the holster also seems to be pulling away from the holster near the bottom.

    But the biggest issue i have is, as John said, that this case is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to take off, and i can’t figure out why. It doesn’t even feel like THAT snug of a fit when you slide the two outer halves together… but once you do, you can spend a good several minutes trying to pry them back apart, if you even manage to before giving up on whatever it is you wanted to do that required taking the case off in the first place. I’ve tried doing what he said, sliding each half on and off separately many times over to try to wear it down, but it’s still incredibly difficult. I’ve even tried taking some fine sandpaper to the surfaces where the two halves meet, as well as in the edges where the side of the TPU cover slide along. At this point i’m thinking about just sanding off the entire plastic tab that locks the two halves, so at least if i wanted to take the case off, i wouldn’t have that to worry about on top of everything else.

    Still though… it’s a fantastic case, and their holsters are top-notch.

    The case itself is very solid but if you are buying it specifically to pair with the holster as I did be warned that the spring on the upper clip of the holster (the one that holds the phone in the holster) will break in under a year. Bought my first one in November 2017 and had to get an RMA replacement by June. Now the exact same issue has occurred in the replacement and they expect me to pay for the shipping . Customer service rep practically hung up on me when I said this was unacceptable. Absolutely last Seidio product I will ever buy.
