Why 5 stars:
Precision. This case fits like no other - you'll find no give or creaks in the build. No tolerances or cracks for dust to collect. The buttons have perfect clarity and feedback - there is no rubbery gap, it's truly made to match the price tag
For a case that can take a good beating, it has a simple, rugged look without being too brutish.
Premium material and excellent build quality:
No sloppy mass production techniques i.e. excess material/mould residue on the inner surface means no chance of "internal scratching" as there can be with other cases. On it's own, the case is sturdy and very well finished.
The texture on the back and the case's profile provides a great feel of premium quality, befitting the calibre of this phone. I believe it matches the aesthetic of the Z1 compact, in that it doesn't try to be the thinnest/lightest/shiniest out there; rather, it aims to look and feel good. The grip gives the phone a solid and secure feel, as well as sit comfortably in your hand however you hold it. I was afraid it would defeat the point of buying the Z1 Compact for my average sized hands, but it actually makes things easier!
Unfortunately, I drop my phone way more than I'd care to mention and after a month, I'm glad I shelled out for this case. For those interested in a screen protector, there's a fantastic oleophobic full-body screen protector by UltimateShield, (with back and side protection) for about £8. Combined with this tough case, I think it's money well spent.
The patterned rear provides a bit of grip, the inner silicone rim that goes around the phone inside the harder shell gives me the impression that it will help ensure that my phone is provided with adequate protection. There aren't any drawbacks that I can see for me as a user but be aware that the magnetic charger point on the side is covered and I believe that you would not be able to charge this way with this case so it might not be suitable for you....
I would definitely recommend this product.
Four stars for what possessed a company like case-mate to leave out a hole for the magnetic charger port and thin the case down a little in that area so owners can use the charging dock ? Unreal incompetence
Anyone want to buy a charging dock ? nice one case-mate
Super quality case apart from that blunder , Must have been a Friday afternoon when they designed the port cut outs hey .
Like I say, great case...shame about the design
However, after seeing some photos on a forum where someone had successfully hacked the case and not being happy with the other cases I had tried I decided to order this.
The first two I ordered got lost in the post, but the 3rd one finally arrived!
Anyway, 15mins of careful shaving and trimming with a Stanley knife and I now have a quality case which appears to offer a great level of protection, looks and feels good in hand - AND allows me to charge with my magnetic cable. Excellent!
I would have given 5 stars if it had the magnetic port cutout as standard.
UPDATE: After about 4 months usage, I tried to remove the phone from the case to access the MicroSD slot and the top right corner of the case just snapped off - even though I was removing slowly and carefully. Very disappointed for a 'tough' case - so have knocked another star off!
