HardCandy Bubble Case Conclusion


I'm a fan of the Bubble Case for Kindle Fire by HardCandy. It has a lot of what I like to see in a protective case. At just over two ounces, it doesn't add much to the weight of your device, while offering a lot of protection. The case is attractive and its distinctive bubble design on the back has already brought on a number of compliments. At only $40, it isn't going to break your budget. It is easy to install and hard to take off. My only two quips is that there is no screen protection (built in or adhesive) and the case is slick to the touch. With weeks of use with it, the Bubble Case from HardCandy has left no marks on the Kindle Fire and it has proven to be resistant to everything my 9 year old son can throw at it. Overall - recommended.
