Patience pays off
on December 21, 2012
This rubberized plastic case is dirt cheap on Amazon.com, yet has amazing quality. A work colleague had one just like it for his iPhone and paid $15.00 at a shopping mall kiosk. I paid $1.60 on Amazon, but I had to wait a little over two weeks for it to arrive to NYC from Hong Kong. It was so well worth the wait.
The Nokia Lumia is a beautifully-designed phone that feels intoxicatingly silky in your hand when you don't have protection on the phone. I.e., it slips out --no, almost leaps out of your hand-- at the slightest provovation. That happened with the first one I had and the screen shattered into a thousand spiderweb cracks. Woe was me.
I ordered an insurance replacement, ordered this S Shape Case and have been thrilled with the case from my first touch. The phone feels only slightly less delicious to hold, but, at least, I know that I am at far less risk of incurring the substantial expense of a replacement. And, the case does protect against minor tumbles pretty well.
The greater value in this case, though, is that you are much much less likely to drop the phone in the first place because of the wonderfully tactile grip rendered by the rubber casing. I considered bulky cases like Otterbox, but I am completely satisfied by the protection offered by this case while retaining the svelte profile that allows it to slide into even a jeans pocket, when necessary.
