Guys,

I got myself an Xperia SP a couple of days back and as part of the promotional offer by Sony, I got a free "Made For Xperia" flipcover case with it. Its supposedly worth 1,899INR (says so on the box) but while the covers texture feels nice, the quality doesn't feel that good. Anyways- quality aside, the phone is a tight tight fit but that doesn't bother me as much as the cover not closing shut properly.

I have a Transformer Infinity and my mom has a Note 2 and both of our flip covers lie flat on the screen instead of awkwardly resting like this. So I wanted to ask- is this normal? Not just for the SP but do all Made For Xperia cases rest like this? Even if I push it down, it pops back up. The only way I can get it to rest slightly is by pulling the case outwards to the right side of the phone and even then it still pops up by a millimetre.

Attaching some pics to show what it looks like- Click Me!

Sample-

I have the original flip cover, the clear s-line tpu case, the case-mate "barely there" case and another blue tpu case.

I have a white XSP.

Agree completely with @satishynd. I am also using the same case... it rests perfectly flat after some use.

hey ....one question though..
does your covers/cases kind of auto-operate screen when kept in pocket??
countless times i've noticed apps opened, numbers dialed ..automatically when kept in pocket (mobile mounted on case/cover obtained from flipkart.com)

Disable Glove Mode in Display Settings. Chances are it is interfering with your flip cover.

Thanks guys. I'll give this cover time to settle down. Hope it fits better after a while.
