A review of the ray-out Silky Touch Silicon Jacket, for the HTC Desire HD
The ray-out Silky Touch Silicon Jacket for the HTC Desire HD / SoftBank 001HT fits the Desire HD well. It’s safe and feels more secure on the device than the Rubber Coating Shell Jacket reviewed earlier (also from ray-out).
When lying on its back, it is flat and stable enough for one-handed operation, although the camera lens surround on the phone protrudes further than the jacket, meaning that it touches the desk.
The jacket wraps securely around the edges of the phone providing quite a bit of protection. I still don’t fancy dropping the Desire HD to test it, but this Silky Touch Silicon Jacket is a defensive step-up from the Rubber Coating Shell Jacket.
Things I don’t like about this jacket:
This isn’t so drastic, but in Landscape mode your fingers easily strike the rubber surrounding the top and bottom of the screen when you are pinching out to zoom-in.
As mentioned earlier, the jacket doesn’t stop the camera lens surround on the phone from touching the desk when it’s lying on its back.
Overall, this nicely-fitting rubber jacket does a good job of covering up the Desire HD and providing protection, especially compared to the Rubber Coating Shell Jacket. At the same time though, it covers up and hides the original sophisticated looks of the device.
The price was ¥ 1280. ($15. / £10. / € 11.4)
