The HTC Touch Diamond2 has put on a bit of weight compared to the original HTC Touch Diamond, so if you’re upgrading to the Diamond 2 and planning on using the same case for it, you’re out of luck as the phone is considerably bigger – but in a good way. The screen is now a much more user friendly 3.2″ compared to 2.8″ on the original Touch Diamond, the camera resolution has been increased, and it’s finally got support for memory cards.
With the Touch Diamond 2 being one of a few handsets that will support Windows Mobile 6.5 – the all new operating system from Microsoft that aims to be more ‘finger friendly’ and give the iPhone a run for it’s money.
If you’ve got the Touch Diamond2, you’re going to want to keep it safe and protected against knocks and drops. A protective case is the best way to look after your phone, so to help you find the right case, I’ve put together this quick guide to the best cases for the HTC Diamond2.
Tuff Luv are new to Mobile Fun, but they make some great cases for phones, netbooks & laptops. The Tuff Luv case for the HTC Touch Diamond2 is a flip style leather case that holds your phone securely in place without needing a plastic cover over the screen or keyboard. The case is closed using a magnetic fastening and it has a removable belt clip on the back. Your camera can still be accessed by folding the front cover back on itself.
The pack contains a genuine HTC leather carry case and a genuine HTC car charger, both designed to work specifically with the HTC Touch Diamond2 handset, which would usually cost in excess of £30 if bought separately. The case is a ‘Book Style’ case that allows you to use the phone without removing it.
If you’re not one for leather cases, or you want a case that is a bit more practical then a FlexiShield Skin will probably suit you better. FlexiShield Skins for the HTC Touch Diamond2 are thicker and tougher than standard Silicone Cases and will certainly give your phone more bounce if you drop it! It has a non slip feel to it and covers all of the back of the handset, leaving the camera free for you to take your photos. The FlexiShield Plus includes a screen protector that helps prevent your screen from getting scratched.
InvisibleSHIELD’s are more than just a screen protector. Not only does it cover the front screen of the HTC Touch Diamond2, it also includes the same tough protective film for the back of your phone. Installation takes a little bit longer than a normal screen protector, but the end result is well worth it. It covers almost all of your phone and will withstand the toughest of scrapes. The InvisibleSHIELD has a matte finish with a non slip feel to it. It is great at repelling fingerprints and reducing reflections and most importantly doesn’t affect the sensitivity of the touch screen. As the InvisibleShield doesn’t add any extra bulk to the HTC Touch Diamond2, you can use in in conjuction with most other HTC Touch Diamond2 Cases.
Krusell make some great cases, and the Orbit Flex range is one of their most popular. They are designed specifically for touchscreen phones and allow quick and easy access to your phone with out adding any unneccesary bulk. They have a soft touch lining that helps keep your screen clean while its in the case. The flip can be detached from the case for improved access. All Krusell cases work with the Multidapt range of clips and mounts so you can find the right mounting option for your phone.
This case is one our most popular Leather Cases for the HTC Touch Diamond2. It’s hand made from premium leather and designed specifically for the HTC Touch Diamond2. As well as protecting your phone, the Piel Frama case has storage space for Bank/Credit cards and cut outs that allow you to use your headphones and charger while your phone is in the case. A detachable belt clip lets you chose between carrying it in you pocket/bag and your belt. Piel Frama also produce a Windscreen holder that can hold your phone securely in the car without having to remove it from the case.
These are a great, cost effective way of protecting your Touch Diamond2 against minor knocks, bumps and fingerprints. They will cushion your phone slightly if you drop it too. They leave the headphone socket and dock connector exposed and are moulded in a way that still allows you to access all buttons while the case is on. It won’t cover the screen though, so it’s probably worth investing in an HTC Touch Diamond2 Screen Protector.
The Leather Flip case is made with a hardened leather outer shell for increased durability and protection and has integrated plastic guide rails to keep your phone in place. Convenient cutouts allow full access to side buttons, sockets, charger & memory card slots without compromising protection.
This a horizontal carry pouch rather than a case that you can leave on your phone permanently. It has cut outs on the bottom edge to make removing your phone easier. As with all PDair cases stock is often limited, so if we’re showing stock don’t hang around or you may end up waiting a few weeks for them to come back into stock.

Bstripe cases are made using fine Italian fabric together with high grade Turkish leather.
