Just got this case from the UK and should be arriving tomorrow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXGeqcoiJks

There is no slot for the magnetic charging port, but I plan on trying to make my own hole. Do you guys have suggestions on how to cut out the polycarbonate shell? The rubber part should be easy, but I don't know how I should cut the polycarbonate. Should I heat it up and then try to cut it like that?

Thanks!

My experience with a TPU case (very similar to that case), was about using a soldering iron (like this: http: //csimg.mercamania.es/srv/ES/00001933974/T/340x340/C/FFFFFF/url/6400-soldador-de-estaao-30w.jpg ) to reshape the holes...

Good luck!!

Yeah, and it SUCKS! Creates a white flare when taking pictures, a lot of dust gets under the cover and it makes your device bulky. But hey, I hope you might have a better experience with it!

Ow yeah, I forgot to most important one... It prevents the flap over the charging port to close properly about 80% of the time.

One more thing, you can't charge battery with the Sony Magnetic Dock DK32, phone with this case doesn't fit in it.

in the magentic dock you can remove the a part of the base to increase the space on the dock, have you tried that and the phone with the case still doesn't fit?

This was the first idea that I had, but I still doesn't fit - I'm talking about the case that LotoTutu called hard case for Z1 compact. There is a slot for magnetic charging dock, but the device in it is still too bulky, and I can't use the dock.

i bought this case about a month ago, and got it replaced couple days ago due to the plastic back is full of bubbles inside. at first i thought it was dirt but gave a wipe and nothing came off. I emailed the company and they said it is not normal, so that sample might be defected. Got it replaced at the shop and i will see how it last this time. Thanks god i didnt chuck the receipt away, never thought it would happen something like that. Let us know how yours going later?
