This is my review of the Seidio spring clip holster for BlackBerry Priv.
When BlackBerry came out with their first devices a holster was a necessity. I’ve used many BlackBerry devices in the past, and yes, some came included with your device but when it didn’t, my go to accessory has always been a holster. Owning a BlackBerry Priv, using a case can interfere with the beauty of the device. So I opted out of using a case and picked up the BlackBerry OEM Holster thinking it would last.
I was wrong, I purchased my first one this last November 2015 and we are now in February and I’ve gone through three of them. The build quality is nowhere close to their other holsters from prior devices. Just recently my favorite case maker Seidio has come out with options for the BlackBerry Priv. I’ve been using their products for a long time now and you can see my review of their Surface Combo Case for the BlackBerry Passport here. If you head over to Seidioonline.com you will find they have a few options available for the BlackBerry Priv.
This time around I opted out of picking up the Surface Case and went with the Spring-Clip Holster for non-case devices. The holster includes a unique spring-clip for quick access and easy removal. Keeps the device secure. Felt liner and face-in design to keep your BlackBerry Priv screen from scratching. Easy access to all the buttons and connectors and my favorite option an integrated magnet to automatically place your device in sleep mode. Knowing my device will be properly secured and holstered for the length of the device I feel comfortable and have no need to worry that my device will fall.
Here’es the product description from Seidio:
