Cracked after 3 months. Probably ok if charged via the usb cable and you never remove the case
on 9 June 2015
This case is nice and compact and better quality than the faux leather ones you get for half the price.
Slim - doesn't add much to the width of the Z2
Edited: unfortunately this had to go back as it cracked after 4 months due to having to remove it all the time to charge it in the Sony dock. I got an IVSO one instead which does allow charging in the case.
Light - doesn't add much weight either
Solid - the Z2 sits in a plastic frame held at the corners and isn't coming out accidentally, although I imagine over time the fit will loosen slightly.
Smart - looks very professional compared to the cheaper types
- Cannot charge up with the Sony dock without taking it out of the case. This is my biggest gripe as it can be tricky getting it out of the case. Can charge via the USB port though.
- Getting the Z2 out is a bit of a knack. You have to try to pop it out of two corners. You get used to it but can be a bit of a pain.
- Expensive compared with the others out there, but it is good quality.
Overall I decided to keep it because I don't think there is a case out there that can fit in the dock without some jiggery pokey.
