Conclusion

The Seidio Active case for the HTC One can offer a great level of protection for the phone inside. The case offers two layers, soft and hard, to fully protect the phone from bumps and drops and should do a decent job at protecting your new HTC One. The case allows for quick and easy access to all of the buttons and ports on the phone. The case is thin, even though it’s two layers, so it’s not bulky and you can slip it right into your pocket to easily take it with you.

The holster is made of hard plastic and has a spring loaded locking clip to hold the phone in place no matter what you’re doing. The holster does not get in the way of the buttons or ports on the phone so you can still access them without removing your phone front the holster.

 

The only real drawback to this case in my opinion is the cover over the IR port. I don’t use it often, but I’d like to and I’d like my case to not only protect the phone but also allow access to all of its features. Yes the IR Blaster feature is an excellent addition to the phone but I’m sure not all people will use it so this might not even bother a lot of people. If you want this case or not would depend on your needs or wants really.
