This is a top quality case for your phone!, 22 Nov 2013
As the title says, this is a top quality case for your phone!
I purchased this item on the basis that it looks very similar to the case I had with my BlackBerry - that is, a leather case where the phone slips in and out and is held in place by means of a fold-over strap fastened by a magnet.
The item arrived in very good time and seems to be manufactured (or at least originate) from Germany, as the color and style selections indicate German language items.
My specific selection was "schwartz / vollnarbig" which translates to "black / full grain" which I am *very* pleased with - the pictures don't do the quality of the leather and design justice.
The case itself isn't designed to protect the phone from significant impacts as such, and as such it adds only a slight amount of padding to the phone itself - however, given the expense of most smartphones (my Galaxy S4 included) you'd be pretty mad to mistreat it, even in its case.
The phone is a little tight to pull out of the case - however, this is a good sign as it tells me the fitment is perfect and will loosen up over time.
The rear of the case has a belt loop, however given the size of my S4 it'll be too large to wear on my belt. A better design perhaps would be to have the belt loop positioned horizontally as you look at the case, so when rotated it can fit on a belt with the phone itself transposed into the horizontal position. However, phones on belts are not my thing...I'm not American :)
The interior of the case is nu-buck or some other hide, which is of similar high quality and suggests it will last a lifetime, or at least the phone's lifetime! The case interior also has that lovely smell of brand new leather shoes...don't laugh, it's my appreciation of quality :)
The stitching running along the external sides of the case doesn't protrude out and as such follows the curved lines of the case edges perfectly. Also, the branding is very minimal, choosing to put a SunCase motif on the magnetic tab and a SunCase logo at the rear bottom.
Anyway, as you can appreciate I love very good quality things, which this **clearly** is :)
I can therefore recommend this case with 1000% certainty that you'd love it as well - superb job SunCase :)
