"The Mobi Products Hex Case stands above regular silicone cases in that it has a very cool hex design and doesn't have the tacky dust-collecting quality like many other skin cases."

In Short:
"Affordable case with plenty of style"

Should I Buy?
"I'm a big fan - sweet design and dust free"
 BUY NOW

The Mobi Products Hex Case for the BlackBerry Bold 9930 and 9900 is a sweet one. It breaks the mold of standard skin case design with a sweet hex pattern on the back. The camera lens, flash and BlackBerry logo all look as if they are part of the design. The case fits snug all around and is sure to protect your device from even the biggest drops. Keep reading for more!

 

The Review

Overall I'm a big fan of the Hex Case. I do prefer my device "naked" at times, but when I'm using a case I just need something that feels good and works. The Hex Case has a great feel to it all around and it looks pretty darn good too. The back of the case is sporting a hex design (where did you think the name came from?) that integrates the BlackBerry logo, camera lens and flash. I love the way these are brought together -- so many cases look great alone, but when there is a little spot for the camera and flash, it kind of takes away from the overall look.

The side ports are open through the Hex Case. You can easily sneak in your 3.5mm jack or USB cable without any issues. The ports are set back a bit, but it doesn't really effect anything from what I could tell. Even the opening for the 3.5mm port is a hex shape - very cool.

The right side I have mixed emotions on. The convenience key is hard to get to at first and takes a bit of adjusting as it sits back a bit (the same goes for the top lock button). I did also have a bit of trouble with the volume and mute keys. They aren't open as the other buttons, but instead covered which makes them a bit shaky at times. If the case isn't sitting just right I found they may not work on the first click. A bit of use and adjustment fixed this right up however.

The Good

The Mobi Products Hex Case is a sweet one in my book. If you're a fan of skin cases, you'll love that it has a sweet hex design on the back instead of just a solid color, and the material itself won't collect dust.

The Bad

It's a bit hard to get the Mobi Products Hex Case seated right at first. I had some trouble getting the sides of the case to sit right, but after some adjusting, it seems much better.

Conclusion

If you're a fan at all of skin cases on your device, you'll like this one. The Mobi Products Hex Case stands above regular silicone cases in that it has a very cool hex design and doesn't have the tacky dust-collecting quality like many other skin cases. I love the way the camera lens and flash openings are part of the hex design as well.

Thats actually pretty nice. I'm jealous of all these cases for the 9900/9930, can the 9850/60 get some love. Geez whiz!!!

Yuck. I think that is fugly...but then that's why there are so many cases out there.

My biggest complaints with skins/cases like this is that they don't cover enough of the front of the phone. I would say that 90% of the skins, etc. I have seen have this exact form.

My favorite skin for my 9930 is the Otterbox Impact (Defender also covers the front but is too bulky overall).

i have it on rex and mhmmmmmmmm i dont really lime it that much..... as it says above, it doesnt fit like all perfectly ! and it covers the speaker ! which i did NOT liked at all....

Not a bad looking case,I have a case-mate gelli case thar fits great, no issues at all,I do like the Mobi design.
