Rugged case does its job of protecting the Z10 well
on 16 May 2014
I had high hopes for this case, and it lives up to most of them. It does bulk up what is an otherwise slim and light (read easily damaged) smart phone. The case comes in three pieces, a two piece cover with integrated screen guard, and a rubberised outer which provides the shock absorption and adds lift up covers for the dock/ charing and headphone ports. The surface of the outer cover, being rubberised, makes it easy to grip the phone, and all of the ports and camera appetures are useable with the case in place.
The case does a great job of protecting the phone from knocks and drops, but is not so great in actually using the phone. It adds a lot of bulk, and the raised 'kerb' around the screen, makes it more difficult to use the extremities of the touch screen keyboard & swipe gestures that the Z10 relies upon.
One other annoying 'feature' is the cut out in the screen protector for the sensor and forward facing camera, whilst the screen protector is quite thick and lays flat, this cut out allows dust to get under the screen cover which is unsightly and makes the touch screen less responsive. I find myself having to take the case off a couple of times per week to clean out the dust (and I don't work on a building site before you ask!).
