Sony Xperia Z Low Profile Covert Branded PU Leather Wallet Case / Cover / Flip Case / Holster - White
After having this case for about 2 months now, the leather stitching has started to come apart. The glue that sticks the case to the plastic phone carrier has started to come off. I have dropped it once and the plastic carrier took the brunt of the impact leaving a corner broken in half, but I guess that's better than the phone taking the impact! Although I thought it would have been a little stronger.
The wallet is really nice quality for the price. My precious new phone feels very protected and I love the 'pocket book' feel of it, however, when taking photos with flash, there is clouding. Not a major issue, it's easy enough to flip the phone out to take a flash photo but would have been nice to not have to. Maybe a darker colour would resolve the issue. I know white can cause additional glare.
Very tough plastic makes it difficult to take the phone out of the case. You can't take a photo when the phone is in the case as the hole at the back is too small so the flash doesn't work correctly and all photos are pale and out of focus!
Bought at 9.99, so far seems to be holding up well.
On a note this does affect the camera. I purchased a white version to go with my white Z, when you take a picture with the case on and flash / low light conditions there is a huge amount of reflection in the final image. So if you want to take snaps make sure the case is off.
The phone is already quite bulky i find so the case magnet (that holds the cover on when closed) occasionally gets snagged on my pocket and makes it awkward to get in. Not major problem though.
If you have credit cards in the front 2 pockets and enable the NFC transfer on the phone you get a popup message that reads "read error. Try again". This is nothing to worry about as it is just thinking the chips in the cards are from a phone or something.
Seems to be holding up well after a few weeks of use, quality is pretty good but for 9.99 i am not expecting lifetime useage. Not sure if it would actually protect the phone too well from a big drop but it is good at keeping scratches to a minimum.
This case fits well and looks good. The leather is pretty soft which makes it comfortable in use. I've given it two out of five for one reason only - if you use your camera you will get blurred photos any time the flash is used. Maybe the opening isn't large enough and the phones flash is mirroring off the case edge. Whatever the cause, others have had the same issue. All ratings are based on personal use, I use my camera often so for me this was a pretty big issue.
The cover protects the screen perfectly, but you are unable to take photos using the flash whilst the phone is in this case as it leaves white mist on you photos. It can be very frustrating taking the phone out of the cover every time you want to take a photo. But this product was soooooo cheap, it's certainly good value for money.
The case fits my Sony Xperia Z perfectly, can even open the charging flap without removing case, feels great, very pleased. UPDATE: However after a couple of months use I still find it difficult to use the home button on the side and even worse the volume control particularly in low light, the plastic shell is too close to the buttons.
