Brighton Net TPU Case – Review

Brighton-Net TPU Case for HTC Desire HD

A review of the Brighton Net TPU case for the HTC Desire HD

The Brighton Net TPU case for the HTC Desire HD / SoftBank 001HT seems to tick all of the boxes so far.

It’s a simple semi-transparent (there is a clear one) rubber jacket, and its dimensions are perfect for the Desire HD.
The case fits snuggly and securely onto the phone, wrapping over the front and sides without creating too much of a frame around the screen.

This means that it securely offers ample protection without restricting the fingers when swiping or pinching to zoom in or out, in either portrait or landscape mode.

When the phone is lying on its back – it is stable and grips the desk nicely, so one-handed use is a breeze, plus the jacket ever so slightly protrudes farther than the phone camera lens surround – so only the rubber jacket touches the desk and not the actual camera surround, as per some previously reviewed products. A welcome sound too when placing the device on a surface.

The power button and volume rocker aren’t too difficult to find or press once you have a few goes.

The ray-out Silky Touch Silicon Jacket is (based on the thickness of the rubber) probably safer than this case if dropped, but the Brighton Net TPU Case is a great blend of safety and aesthetics, without the niggles that came with the other reviewed items. The darker version I tested compliments the brownish shades of the Desire HD.

Some of these photos were taken with a flash and some without.

Of the 5 cases I’ve reviewed so far, this is my favorite.

The price was ¥ 1280. ($15. / £10. / € 11.4)
