For my latest review, I will go away from the norm, and review an iPhone case. I don’t often review Apple products and related accessories, and that is probably to do with my love of Android, but every now and then a case comes along that makes you want to play with it. Snugg’s iPhone 5 Suede Pouch case is one such case.
More information and buying info for the case can be found at the following address:
Look and feel
When it comes to look and feel, the Snugg case ticks all the boxes. It has a lovely leather feel, with an engraved company logo, beautiful stitching and nice colour range. It also fits very snugly in your hand, and sticks in there.
Holding the phone
To begin with the phone is quite a tight fit, and to be honest, one almost struggles to pull it out again. The attached elastic cord to extract phone, however, comes to your aid and allows you to pull your phone out. The case took about a week to loosen up and allow the phone to fit in easily. Once the phone is in, it stays in. Also the leather means that the case does not slip around in your pocket or your hand. The case provides ample protection to the phone.
The case provides holes at the bottom to allow for the phone’s ring to reach out. However, if you want access to the headphone socket on the bottom of the phone, you will have to insert the phone in the case upside down.
It also packs in an extra pocket which allows you to pack in cash/card. I found this to be useful as a place to squeeze in notes, or maybe a bit of cash, but it will not hold credit cards.
As far as cases go, this works very well. It allows you to protect your phone, but being a pouch means it does not stay permanently in a cover and collect dust around the back. It feels and looks great, and with a discount offered right now on the price, it is a very good value for money.
I have to thank Snugg (www.theSnugg.com) for providing this case for a review.
