3.0 out of 5 stars Good case, unfortunately a little fragile, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Xperia Z Hybrid Rubberised Back Cover / Case / Shell / Shield - Solid Black (Electronics)
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.
