This review is from: Global Brown iphone 5 New Arrival Crazy Horse Grain Leather Folio Wallet Credit Card Slot Case With Stand for Apple iphone 5 5G 5th (Electronics)
Whilst waiting for the case to arrive, I was not too optimistic. You see, I'd tried several book-style, side-flip cases around this price range, and they were all badly designed or badly made.
Then this case arrives and I'm blown away! Its thickness is just right - not too thick, nor too tight. Its dimensions keep it compact. And I like the fact that the black casing that keeps the iPhone 5 held snugly, is barely a millimetre above the face of the phone, and I like that because you can slide your finger off the edges whilst using it, without bumping your finger against the surrounding case.
As only two-thirds of the bottom of the casing is attached to the back leather cover, it allows you to do two things - the first is to let you stand it in landscape viewing. Secondly, texting in landscape mode is a joy, as you can place the middle and ring fingers in between the back cover and the phone and text away with your thumbs - it's really a great feature. I slip my fingers behind even in portrait mode.
Lastly, there are two credit card slots, which I can take or leave - I suppose they could come in handy, but I wouldn't jam in too many, as it kind of defeats the object of this slim case, which, by the way, feels gorgeously smooth in the hands. It also has a nice grain. It will also be easy to clean.
Overall, I'd say this case is svelte, has great form, and is highly functional - excellent value for money.
I'm off to buy another one!
