The "Ringo" custom leather case full review as promised!!!
Hi guys! It’s been a while since my first pre-review of the case right?
( My pre-review of the case:
Check this out! Stylish! Custom made CASE for TP2! BEST I've seen!
OK, now let’s the review begin.
I also made a review video for it if you guys interested:
I got the SHINNORIE case yesterday via FedEx express.
As you may know the case called the “ RINGO “ and it’s all fully customizable (as stated in my pre-review here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=561391
), if you got any addition issue or ideas in mind just e-mail them like I did their customers service is pretty fast but any additional requests came with a cost though.
Everything is pretty nice they carefully packed the case in a solid box, which is nice because it’s an international delivery. When I opened the box and saw the package I was very impressed by the packaging, it was very creative! I never saw a packaging like this.
As you can see from the pictures, I feel hesitated to cut it open! and try to find someway else to open it … but I failed, ended up cutting the packaging open LoL~
The case looks real nice. I can immediately smell the leather’s scent. Though, the leather surfaces feel really soft and comfort but the build quality is great, seems solid and durable. The seam on the case is petty neat and in a good detailed order.
I’m 95% sure that this is real leather as they stated because of the smell and those wrinkles on the surface when you pressed your finger on against the case.
The case basically made of customizable leather on the outside and soft microfibre lining in the inside, which can help clean your phone this is a +1 for me.
Also you can easily slide out your phone with the strap pulling system, which is another +1 for me
Nice job Shinnorie.
In my design I also added the cardholder pocket (or you can add a utility pocket instead) on the back of the case, which pretty slick I supposed LoL~ cuz if you didn’t add any utilities option they got I think the case will look a bit boring. You can put 1 or 2 cards in there with some banknotes.
The key-ring and the strap are incredibly useful for me as I can hook up my car’s key or whatever to it and I would feel more secure to hook my phone up with my pant using the leather strap. (in the future I planned that may be I’ll just find a new longer strap to hang the case around my neck, if that doesn’t look too nerdy! LoL~ )
I used this case for about a day now and I must say that it’s quite comfortable and convenient, it suit my daily use pretty well I guess ….
About the CONS, I can’t think of any yet…sorry guys. This case really got me.
OK may be there is one, the price…because the ‘RINGO’ leather case here is a bit pricy. If you want a nice handmade leather case and willing to spend $65 US for that, I truly recommend this one.

(The RINGO is in HTC section under the ELEMENT series.)
So, here’s my full review on this case as promised.
Have a great day onwards guys!
