I went a few weeks without a case on my BlackBerry Z10 and only managed to drop it twice. Each time was fairly traumatic, but thankfully the Z10 is built to last and didn't sustain any damage. Not even a scratch. Had I covered my phone with the DualPro Hard Case from Incipio, however, my phone most definitely would have been much safer. Many thanks to Michael from BlackBerry Empire for hooking it up with the case!

The DualPro Hard Case combines silicone and plastic to give your phone two layers of protection. First up is a silicone cover that slips easily onto your phone. After that's in place, you put the plastic portion on top.

The case feels very smooth and slick in your hand and helps the Z10 keep that sleek look that makes it a gorgeous phone. There's easy access to your charging and HDMI port on the left side, as well as headphones on the top. You'll also find buttons on the top and right for your volume rockers and power button.

The silicone feels smooth as well, but in a more low-quality kind of way. It doesn't feel cheap, like it could tear at any given moment, but at the same time, it doesn't feel like the super high-end silicone of other case manufacturers.

The case included an Incipio screen protector. Personally, I always have a hard time with them because I have to have it on there completely perfect and it always ends with me screaming and pounding on things like an angry orangutan. However, I powered through the moments of insanity for the sake of my review. If you decide to buy this case I would suggest not using the screen protector. I've noticed more smudges and fingerprints since applying it, and that just turns me back into orangutan mode.

Putting the case on could be a little easier. After having it on my phone for a few days, it still feels like it's not on all the way. There are a few areas around the edge of the case that don't really seem to connect properly.

Thankfully the DualPro meets the guidelines that I look for in a smart phone case; maximum protection with minimum bulk. It has a thin profile that doesn't add too much mass to my phone, and it fits easily into my pocket. The smoothness of the outer plastic helps it slip in and out of my pocket with ease. The extra bulk of the case is noticeable while in my pocket, but not enough to detract me from using it.

While there are definitely cases out there that are a better option for the Z10, there are also a lot more that are far worse. The case is reasonably priced for $29.99, and is very much worth what you're paying.

If you're looking to purchase a middle of the road case for your BlackBerry Z10, the DualPro Hard Case is what you want. It's just good enough to keep you happy, without having to spend a small fortune for the super high-end options.
