As soon as I got my BlackBerry z10 I picked up the Dual PRO Shine Case by Incipio. Out of the 5 cases offered for the Z10 the Dual PRO Shine is one of Incipio’s more high end cases. I’ve been using the case for over a week so the time has come to break it down for you. Continue reading for more.
If you’re looking for ultimate protection at a great price without compromise then you need to pay attention to the Dual Pro Shine. It’s a top of the line case at an affordable price which is also on top of technology as this case is made of radio transparent material so it won’t interrupt signal strength. The case is composed of 3 essential parts. An acrylic polycarbonate hardback with an elegant aluminum finish, a shock absorbing silicon inner sleeve for ultimate protection and a clear screen protector. With that you get a micro fiber cleaning cloth and an applicator card to lay on the screen protector.
- Length: 5.27 in (133.86 mm)

- Width: 2.76 in (70.10 mm)
- Depth: 0.51 in (12.95 mm)
- Weight: 1.1 oz
To the right is my BlackBerry z10 with the newly added screen protector which comes included with this case – Very cool! To the left is the case with the shock absorbing silicon sleeve inside the hardback cover. As you can see this case gives you access to all your necessary ports and connecting slots. The volume control keys are covered with the silicon sleeve. When you slide your Z10 into the silicon sleeve make sure the Incipio logo is facing up. When you insert the silicon sleeve make sure and detach it from the hardback.
Above is how the device looks after it is placed inside the silicon sleeve. The sleeve has the Incipio logo which will imprint and level out in the open slot that’s on the back plate cover. Both pieces contain camera and flash access so you will not lose out on any of that functionality.
One the device is in the silicon sleeve its ready to be placed into this elegant back plate. Make sure and level the the silicon layered covered device into the frame of the back plate cover. Once everything is lined up evenly simply press down and the device will fit right in without difficulty or struggle.
And there you go! Your Berry is protected without compromising access or added bulk. For being a 2-part case it looks sleek and is a real eye catcher. The case attracts as many compliments as the phone itself with its clean and elegant look. As far a putting it to the test I’ve had some accidental drops, one being from my lap right onto the street, screen face down and the BlackBerry didn’t receive one scuff. If you plan to purchase this case you won’t have to worry about scuffing your device if it falls face first.
Its features include:
- Durable polycarbonate plastic exterior with a shock absorbing layer silicone sleeve
- Radio transparent material will not hinder signal strength
- Ultimate protection without compromising weight or bulk
- Port Access to USB ports, touch screen, and connecting inputs
Overall the Dual PRO Shine is an excellent case which provides ultimate protection at a great price without compromise. On a ten scale I’d give this one a 9.5. If Incipio wants me to rate this case a 10 they’ll have to manufacture the exact same case but in a sexy black aluminum finish. Now that would be hot. The Dual PRO Shine Case is only$34.99 and I can guarantee this will be the best investment you’ve made, other than purchasing the Z10.
