Simple, functional, does exactly what it says
on 4 December 2011
Good price, simple and basic. Does exactly what it says.
Nice and simple design with no annoying frills. Lightweight.
Quick and easy to use: slip your phone in, stick the flap down, chuck it into your bag and off you go! No fiddling around with zips or press-studs.
Minor minus points (nothing major)
The padding is a little on the thin side - I wouldn't want to do any sort of height-drop tests with it. But for basic scratch protection, it works fine.
Not a very snug fit width-wise - make sure you don't accidentally leave the flap open and pick up the case upside down - the phone will shoot out like a slippery fish!
Small niggle: the strip of material that holds the stitching on the inside front edge of the case, keeps being folded forwards every time I close the flap so that when I open the flap, the strip then sits at right-angles to the case. Perhaps a couple of weeks of closing the flap more slowly, while pushing this strip flat, will solve the problem. Minor issue though.
If you want something simple to protect against light bumps and scratches for gentle day to day use, this does the job well.
If you're going hiking and want to stuff your phone in a backpack with lots of other things that will be banging against it, better to get a hard case.
