Very Good For The Price
on 22 September 2012
Price paid - £2.69 (free postage).
Firstly - there is a review here which says that the phone sticks into the case leaving sticky marks on the back of the phone - this is untrue of the case I received in which the phone clips into a neatly fitting plastic surround which it is easy to both insert and remove the phone from but still holds the phone securely in place. The case is sturdy and rigid with a soft surface and appears to give good protection. The flip open operation and magnetic clasp work well, the camera and speaker ports are well placed and access to the Power Key, Volume Key and Strap Mounting Point is good - access to the headphone jack and multifunction (USB) jack are also goodISH with the negative point that the clasp must be open to use them as it otherwise blocks them off. The materials and construction of the case are good and very good for the price. The reverse of the case flap has two slots for credit cards which I will not be using as I see it as undesirable to have them pressing against the face of my Galaxy Y.
Now the extras - The screen protector seems of good quality but my personal preference is to not use it. The screen cleaning cloth is very small and is probably provided to prep the screen for protector installation. The stylus pen is of good quality and works well enough - it has been commented on in other reviews here that there is no way provided to attach the stylus to the case - this is slightly misleading as it has a strap hole in the top which would facilitate it being attached directly to the phone's own strap point (which is accessable with the case on and latched) using an appropriate strap such as the wrist strap supplied with many (though not all) Galaxy Ys though the inclusion of a dedicated strap with the stylus would be sensible and is a petty omission.
In conclusion - I am very pleased with this package and, given the price paid and my previous comments, do not hesitate to recommend it.
UPDATE 09-01-14: Still pleased with it, still works fine, hasn't fallen apart, still looks good with a couple of acceptable creases - a small piece of plastic from immediately above the volume key has broken off (the only real weak point) but this doesn't reduce functionality or even cosmetic appeal. Probably most importantly, it has done a very good job protecting my Galaxy Y. As time rolls on its good-buy status just gets better and better.
UPDATE 09-06-15: A little bit more worn here and there but still intact and going strong as is my Galaxy Y which it seems to be doing a good job of protecting.
