HTC Hero FlexiShield SkinThe HTC Hero’s distinctive chin has probably caused case manufacturers quite a few headaches. After all how do you create a slick case and take account of the HTC Hero’s chin at the same time? Well it looks like the FlexiShield Skin has the answers and MobileFun were kind enough to send us one to see how it fares.

The FlexiShield comes in two colours, clear (ideal for white & pink models) and black that suits the black T-Mobile G2 Touch perfectly. It is made from a special tough gel that gives it the flexibility of a silicone case but provides the durability of a crystal case. The rubber feeling of the case gives the phone much better grip in the hand.

It is well designed and maintains access to all of the phones ports, including 3.5mm headphone socket, USB charging port and camera. There is no hole for the volume buttons, but this is still easy to adjust through the case. On the inside, there are two raised bumps that aid in volume selection.

Another great thing about the case is that it hardly adds to the size/weight of the handset. We also liked how easy it was to slip on and off the phone, which means you can always get easy access to your sim-card, microSDHC or battery. I’m using this as my main case right now and it feels secure against minor bumps or knocks. You can purchase it from MobileFun for £9.95 + p&p, who deliver across Europe. Check out a gallery of pictures of the FlexiShield Skin below.

I ordered a FlexiShield Plus Skin For The HTC Hero from MobileFun.co.uk but the headphone jack doesnt go inside the hole, so when you put the jack in, the edge sits against the skin, meaning that the thickness of the skin prevents the jack from going all the way in and seating correctly… So you cant use the headphones properly with the skin on – very annoying! Great product apart from that. Did you test the jack properly and actually use it? Also, you say that your volume buttons are covered, but my skin has a hole for the volume buttons.

i really like my new g2. easy to use, practical. the screen is really easy to navigate and it’s really senitive which i like. processor is faster than my old unlocked gsm phones and it’s easy to text and email. much better than my old unlocked verizon phones. the games apps and facebook are fun and keep my family and I busy on long trips. gps helps us get around town because they are constantly doing construction it’s frustrating. not as good as my old unlocked iphones but that’s ok.i like the track ball on this strangly enough too.it’s easy to move around. also got my cell phone unlock codes and blackberry unlocking for free! got my last couple htc’s at unlockthatphone.com 2 thumbs way up
