Noreve Tradition B for Note 8
here's a short review of the Noreve Tradition B Case for the Note 8. It's my first review, so don't judge too hard
I've bought the Noreve case at it is genuine leather, offers two pockets for business cards / credit cards and a larger pocket for document(s).
It's a bit on the expensive side, I paid 79.90 Euro as I wanted the"Sable Vintage" Leather instead of the standard black Perpetuelle which costs 69.90 Euro.
Due to this the case was delivered three weeks after ordering (the standard version was on stock).
It came with a nice box containing the case packaged in a red bag:
The case itself was looking beautiful, with a nice smell of leather:
The inside is made of leather as well with the mentioned pockets on the cover:
The Note 8 fits in nicely, the case holds it very firmly. All ports and buttons are accessible, even the SIM slot and the SD Card:
On the back you can see the hole for the camera and a small stand to stand up the device in landscape position:
The stand is locked with a small button so it won't open by accident:
It stands a lot more upright than with Samsung's book cover:
The only thing I am missing is a holder for a larger S-Pen as I prefer it over the small integrated one. I got around it by attaching it to the leather hinge on the side:
Not sure how stable this is on the long run but it works for now.
I am very happy with this case,it's well worth the money in my opinion. It's perfectly made, the leather is of very good quality. It adds a bit of weight to the device though (about 230g), but I can live with that. One thing to mention is that it does not powers off the note when closing it, I take this as a pro as there are discussions whether the magnets can harm the S-Pen accuracy, but it's worth noting.
