The overall design is good, with a good choice of materials. The finish is good.
One minor comment:
- It would have been useful if the reverse of the flip cover had a smooth finish so that post-its could be attached.
- The frame grips the phone, but I am concerned that the edges of the frame will, over time, scratch the sides of the phone as the latter is removed and inserted into the case's frame frame.
One bigger issue:
- The standard USB plug on the HTC power adapter (supplied with the phone) will not fully engage in the phone's adapter socket through the slotted provided in the side of the case's frame. As a consequence, the adapter plus will easily pop out if not checked. This has let me down once already - I assumed that the phone had charged, but instead the battery ran dry. The phone has to be removed from the case to ensure that the plug will fully engage in the socket on the phone, which is inconvenient, and implies higher than normal ware on the finish of the phone (see concern above).
