So today I'll be ordering a leather flip case for my X10.

It seems like it's down to the
"Noreve Traditional A Leather Case"
and
"Leather Case for Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 - Book Type (Snap Button)(Black/Crocodile Pattern)"


Any recommendation as to which of these are better?

I haven't heard much about the PDairs in regards to X10's but browsing through this forum for other phones it seems like PDair has some mixed reviews.
And just by looking at it, I'm not entirely sure it'll secure the phone too well.
Spaghetti leather straps appear to hold it in place.
Sort of a G string for my X10. Possibly not what i'm looking for.

The noreve on the other hand appears to grip the phone very well. But it's a few extra dollars and i'm sure shipping will be pretty high considering I have to order from the UK. (I'm located in the USA)


I'm not sure if this matters enough to affect your recommendation but
I don't care about the belt clip quality as I will strictly use this as a case in my pocket. Not on a belt.
Bulk is not a problem. I just need maximum protection with a hard flap that will insure my screen won't get broken.

Accessibility is a plus since i'd prefer to never take it out of the case.
and having a hole for the camera is a plus.

I guess both of these cases somewhat match my needs but i'm not sure which is better nor if there is an even better choice out there.

Good people of XDA! Help me decide which case to get!

you'd better check on http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories (fairly cheap prices and free shipping)

I have a Norève (received as a gift) about a year ago and love it.

I need a robust case which includes a screen cover; all of my previous smartphones were retired because of broken screens.

The Norève is solid and grips the phone well. My X10 has survived my usual level of phone abuse with no nicks or scratches. There is an included belt clip, a metal one is available as an option.

There is a large variety of leather choices (mine is smooth and light blue). Each case is made-to-order in France, which sucks if you're in a rush but results in something that fits the phone perfectly.

I'm very happy with my Norève and will buy cases for future phones from then too. Slow to produce and deliver but worth the wait, IMO; no complaints at all.
