Nice snug fig, adds minimal extra bulk to the phone.
Only very small gripes (hence the 4 stars) are that the volume is a little difficult to press, (but completely usable) and it cannot be used in conjunction with the charging dock (as in the desktop charging block, not the cable as that can still easily be plugged in).

nice slim case protects most edges and all corners (most important) note feels really slippy like its covered in silicone spray could have been slightly thinner on the main back plate but works well without that bulked up feeling you get with some cases - get one now its cheap enough to replace at your leisure if you find a case you like better but your phones protected whilst you make up your mind knocked mine of a desk last week this case saved the corner of the phone from almost certain damage.
in short well worth it -recommended

This case is one of the best, the price is right the quality is robust and it is very sleek it doesn't bulk up your Xperia Z.

Highly recommended!

I have had this product for a month or so and it is falling to pieces. It fits nice, feels nice, BUT it has now snapped at every weak point exposing more and more of the edges of my phone (leaving the phone open to damage if dropped). I haven't dropped the phone and it has either been in my pocket/hand or on a work surface.

It's durability for normal use is very low, dispite the price! If they cost slightly more to make durable then do it. I know these things cost pence in the Far East so the mark up to £3.99 is very healthy. Spend a bit more on the materials/design make decent durable products and you will make a name for yourselves. Passing on cheap rubbish gets you reviews like this.

I bought the Casemate of the same thing for £15, just in case this one was junk. Opened them both & they're almost identical. Main diference is the packaging, which get's chucked!

I purchased this case in March 2013 and I have now had to replace it just 6 months later. After normal everyday usage, the corner of the case that covers the charging port has broken and snags on clothing etc. This is clearly something of a design fault and negates the level of protection offered when this case was first fitted. Although not expensive, it is a reasonable expectation not have to replace a case every 6 months. Not so with this product it would seem.

This is a good case, for a good price. It's a nice, matt plastic finish, and it covers the rear and sides of the phone, with a cutout for the power button and volume rocker, and for the USB port on the opposite side of the phone. The top and bottom of the phone remain accessible (giving headphone jack access) as well.

The sim and SD slots are not accessible while the phone is in the case, though I don't imagine people use these often enough to justify cut-outs for them. The phone "clicks" in nicely.

Unfortunately though, there is a design weakness, whereby since the USB port is very high up on the left of the device, there is only a small thin loop of plastic around one side of it. This "loop" broke while in my pocket, inside the house, with no impacts or other abuse. While it's nothing serious, and I'll try to get a replacement, it does highlight a weakness, which is that this is a relatively soft plastic, and it deforms easily in thin areas.

Despite this, I feel the case offers good protection for the phone against a small tumble (ie. it protects the back "glass" panel well), but I'd not count on it to withstand serious levels of abuse and neglect (which no small case does). Just be aware that the case is a little fragile at the small "loop" around the USB port, as it seems prone to break.

I really like this cover. It's slim and discreet, doesn't get in the way yet nicely protects my phone (and I have dropped it a couple of times). Where the cover edges are a little thin, at the top left and bottom right, it has broken away but it still fits snugly and continues to do its job.
