Great value for money. Much nicer quality than you'd think (and compared to others I've bought).

5.0 out of 5 stars This is slimmer and feels (and looks) much better quality. I'll report back in a few months ..., 30 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've bought two (really cheap) versions of this type before and they lasted a month or two. This is slimmer and feels (and looks) much better quality. I'll report back in a few months to see if it's lasted any longer than the cheap ones. One gripe, if hinge was 1 cm wider, I could fit more cards in the wallet and it would still close.

Also - be aware of magentic clasps. They can wipe your credit cards (did mine). I think this one is OK as the magnet fixes on the phone side, not the card site. Again I'll report back if they get wiped.

Update - I've now had this for over two months and there are ZERO signs of wear and the leather has got softer and so it closes so much easier. Also, I don't seem to have had any issues with magnet damage to my credit cards.

It is worth the extra cost over the cheaper ones.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sound OK - But gllue the things properly please, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had these two months or so and today, the earbud came unstuck from the housing.

By definition, you push these firmly into your ear, and so there's quite a pull needed to remove them so the glue needs to be MUCH stronger.

I've had similar problems with other types, so these are no worse. And, it has to be said, it's an easy fix. It's just that you'd have thought they'd know this by now.

P.S They do sound good by the way and the mic works fine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless - No, I mean it, 19 Jun. 2014

Unpacted, spend 10 minutes trying various methods of putting the phone down without the magnet disconnecting, failed, threw it away.

If you've ordered one, don't even uppack it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not perfect., 19 Jun. 2014
The phone's small and fast - as has been said before. But I'm not blown away for a couple of reasons :-

1. Battery life. The main reason I bought this phone is because so many (including professional reviewers) said it was amazing. Well it's OK, but I don't think I'd ever get two days of normal (week day) use out of it. My last phone (a Motorola Razr Maxx) was much, much better and the thought of using Sat Nav without needing to plug it in is naive.

2. Software - I have to reboot the phone quite frequently to get a data connection (3g), get some bluetooth devices to work, get a wifi connection restarted. It's not awful, but this is a SONY phone. It's especially a pain when I suddenly need sat nav and there's a good phone signal, but data just doesn't work. I was expecting near perfection.

3. Battery life indicator = Random number generator.

Don't be too put off, it is a pretty good phone, but there's no additional quality over other brands and I have to say I was expecting one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really Good, but credit cards seem to suffer - Magnetic Strip, 19 Jun. 2014
I've had this wallet for a month or so, but had to get rid. I've now damaged 4 credit cards with it. I think it's the magnets that keep the clasp shut. After a week or so my credit cards won't work in cash machines (chip and pin still works though).
Otherwise it's great for the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality....at a price, 2 April 2014

These are genuine, quality and a direct replacement for the wipers on my 635d. But I still can't figure out why they're so expensive.

They got delivered quickly too.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK quality, but certainly large, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've gone from using the last hole to buckle my watch to almost the first one. Extra large it certainly is.

Quality is so so, some leather scuffed (around the buckle) after 2 days, but it feels and looks good quality apart from that.

Did take a good week to arrive though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the ones that came with the projector, 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These were so good and cheap I bought a second pair - they're better than the ones that came with my projector (viewsonic) as they kept losing their connection.

Did I mention they were cheap...

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, almost makes children tolerable, 14 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dobble Card Game (Toy)
Very simple, snap type game which is fantastic both with alcohol and with children (please don't mix :) ).

You'd never believe such a simple game can actually be so difficult.
