[Review!] 1/21/14-Seidio LEDGER Flip Case with Kickstand
Ok I finally got the case in and I am IN LOVE with this case! The quality is top notch. The backing is a smooth matte finish and the front is a nice cloth cover with Seidio on the side that is subtle, not blaring white or outrageous branding. The kickstand is a nice touch. A great solution to these thin case that cannot fold the front in in any way to stand the case horizontally to view vids and such. The interior is a very soft felt like material that also houses the phone. I cannot stress enough on how well this case is made. I guess for $30usd, it has to be some quality there eh? lol
There is a slot for a credit card, but I never put stuff in there anyways. I would forget I would have it in there. But it's nice to have in order to stash receipts or a business card or two away.
Being as slim as the prior case I was reviewing, the Rock Elegant Slim case the Ledger blows it out of the water. The only thing is that the Ledger is not frosted or see through in any way, but my god, the case is solid.
And to my surprise, the cover has the sleep function built in! And no the cover does not magnetically catch closed. It's like a book, in this case. And with the kickstand, I was worried about it charging correctly on my orb and low and behold, it charges fine! Hot dang, this case is winning with me right now lol.
Being the form factor almost the size of the Rock Elegant Slim case, I tried it with the Seidio Dilex Holster I have for the N5. It should work because it's a Seidio holster and housing the Seidio Ledger right?!?! YEP!
This sucker looks like it was made for each other.
I totally recommend this case for anyone looking at this. If you are on the fence, just jump in and buy it. Go to shopandroid and try SAVE15 for 15% off of your total order. It's totally worth it in my book. Will it protect on a drop? The corners will absorb some of the shock and distribute and I feel will survive a tumble or two.
