I use my phone on a daily basis for a number of activities that range from checking Facebook & Twitter, to reading and sending emails. I would be lost without it so am always on the lookout for ways to keep it protected. Having something that is useful for more than just a case for my phone is even better, and that is where the Wallet Case from Sandberg comes into play.
The case itself is packaged in the usual Sandberg white box with a transparent plastic window on the front which gives you a decent view of the case itself. The back of the box gives a few short lines of information regarding the case, which as usual, is available in several different languages.
The case itself has a nice feel to it. It is held closed by a magnetic strap, and it actually feels like quite a secure magnet. The back of the case has holes for the camera and flash, as well as a small hole for one of the built-in mics. On the inside of the flap that opens you have two spaces for cards of your choice, whether they be credit cards or reward cards, etc, and behind these slots, located by the spine of the case is a pocket that could be used for either more cards and/or cash. The other side of the case has a cradle that is made from a textured plastic material that holds your phone in place. There are slots available to all of the buttons and controls needed for phone use – each one allowing for decent access and none of the controls or buttons are in any way covered or not accessible.
After using the case for awhile, I am actually pretty fond of it. I don’t like to use a bag too often, and having loose cards in pockets can result in them becoming bent, damaged, or even lost. Knowing how protective I am of my phone, I always know where it is, whether I am at home or out and about. This case means that I also know where my cash and cards are also – an added bonus if you ask me. The case does a good job of protecting the phone also, which is something that you would probably want it to do primarily. Even after use, the material that the case is made from is still fully intact and there is no sign of any damage at all.
Although the price is a little steep (around £25) it does do the job, and it does it well. I am sure, however, that you could find something that does the same job for a fraction of the price. That is all that lets it down, in my opinion. A great product at a not overly great price.
