Default Noreve leather case in white

Took close to three weeks because I picked white, but I finally have it.

Wireless charging works fine with both TYLT and an el-cheapo one.
The cover does have a magnet, so the screen turns on/off automatically (nice!).
Both the earpiece hole and the notification hole work as you'd expect them to.

Makes the phone look bulky, but expensive.

Is it worth the $50 I paid?

Yes.

For me at least.

Default Wow

Very tempting indeed! I just wish they would have more images. Any reviews on them?

Did you click on the arrow? There are 8 or so photos for each.

I had owned a number of their products, and the quality is top notch. You can find plenty of reviews for other cases online.

I always was envious of those phones that got wrapped in Vaja leather. Those cases always look so nice, as do these.

I'm personally not a fan of this style of case, but it looks well made and like you said, expensive. I bought three cases for my N5, none of which I use, so yeah, this one case is easily worth the $50 I've spent thus far

I do love the ivolution Vaja's. My ivolution for my Sony Clie NX70 is still going strong after all these years! lol I wanted to get one of these for my N4, but they absolutely failed in communicating on the delays of my order. I do want them, but for one, they have to promise to deliver when they say. I have spoken to another member who knows the owner of Noreve personally and sent my feedback to them. I have no opinion of the product, but I am curious now based on those nice pics. Handcrafted leather is just nothing like it IMO.

I'm sure you bought this reasonable expectations, but I have to say, once you go premium leather, you just can't go back.
As with everything else, premium quality is addicting.

Man this looks nice. Wish they made one without the screen cover though. I could never stand having that big flap when using my phone.
