Looks good, I've currently got a TPU SLine case, but putchased a TPU case with kickstand, which I'm hoping is alright for a daily driver, but if it isn't I might have a go with this case.


Thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review.

What do you think of them S-Line cases? How would they fair with a drop from shoulder/chest height? Also let us know how the tpu with a stand goes.

It looks great this case and there is little to choose from wrt cases that have a stand.

EDIT: Trust me to order it during chinese new year :/

yeah I'm in the UK too. I ordered off the same ebay seller and despite them saying 4-6 weeks it arrived in about 5 days... Hope your case arrives quickly too

I emailed them and they said because it's Chinese new year, they're not working till the 14th . If only I ordered it the day before lol.

So overall you're very happy with it and would you think about getting a good TPU case like Diztronic? or even Otterbox if it's available?

Yeah, I do really like it and it's certainly good value for money (7.50/$10). I will probably get a TPU case at some point too and a bumper to boot. I guess they're all good and suit different purposes.

Yes, during Chinese New Year's it tends to get a little busy and slow especially since Singaporeans celebrate it, some other vendors online have warned about it being slow during this time.

The back seems a little slippery. I had a Mercury TPU which is as slippery on the back as it is on the front glass, so I feel it slide when I hold it with my fingers on the front and back. I guess with a textured front cover on this it shouldn't be as bad? Has any slipperiness from the case been a problem for you? Thanks for the review, it's very helpful.

I guess it is a little slippery but it isn't something that I've really noticed or found to be a problem. The naked nexus 4 was crazy slippery, it would just glide across the desk etc. With this case it's more like a normal phone, it stays put when left alone. Perhaps the stand latch helps anchor it a little better other hardback cases.

When answering calls you'd usually fold the cover over so the inside of your hand is connected with the microfibre material which helps secure it. A small observation is that due to the flip cover having enough material to also cover one side of the phone, when folded back there is more cover than back of phone. It's a minor criticism with the design and one that doesn't really bother me.

Overall I've found the case makes the phone much less slippery but I imagine that a soft backed case (eg: TPU) would secure it even further.

Cheers
