Video Review: Incipio Dual Pro Case For Dtek60

A case for your favourite daily driver is an essential piece of kit for most users. Some enjoy the nakedness of the device itself (as do I), but when we’re out and about it just seems logical from a safety perspective that you cover your precious with a little insurance.

I love my flip cases for the Z30, Passport, and Priv, but for the Dtek60 I wanted to try something different.

Let’s check out the Dual Pro case from Incipio.

Piece it together

The two piece case comes already assembled, so you need to take it apart before putting it on your phone. One of the pieces is the soft, pliable rubber inner core. That is what you place your Dtek60 into initially.

You can see the rubber inner core on the left. The other piece to the Incipio puzzle is the hard shell outer component which seamlessly integrates onto the back of the soft core.

They fit together beautifully. Snug, well crafted, and feels great in the hand. Those that know the Dtek60 are very familiar with how unbelievably slippery this beast is. The Dual Pro fixes that issue wonderfully. Grippy and comfortable right out of the box.

The significant camera bump on the Dtek60 is fully protected unlike the gel case that came with my unit, and the cool thing is that Incipio remembered to open up the rear speaker ports, again unlike the shipped gel case.

Pros:

Light

Grippy

Feels great in hand

Buttons are easily activated

Rear speakers are available

Decent price

 

Cons:

No magnet/sleep function

No front cover

    Thanks Dave. Very helpful. Why is it two pieces, I wonder? Seems like the rubber part alone would be a great grippy cover. Is there a reason you don’t mention cost? I’m thinking of picking this phone up for my wife on the current BlackBerry promotion. Thanks,
    Barry.

      You’re welcome! I think it’s two pieces so that it’s easy to get the rubber core on for the resilience, and then you add the back plate on for toughness. Once you add the hard plate it’s extremely unlikely the phone would escape the case because of the added rigidity.
      I’ve seen the price go from the reg $29.99 to around $20 as a special. I suppose I should have mentioned that, thanks.
