When it comes to smartphone cases, for some it's like a wardrobe accessory. Especially if such case cost a few bucks, has a decent build quality, and will make you stand out from a crowd - you can never go wrong with it. Based on my previous experience, tvc-mall has been my go to place for any cool looking case on a budget. In my opinion, they got one of the largest selection of smartphone accessories, and a great service. With my latest order, actually headphones (review coming up soon, just keep checking a link in my sig), I browsed through their catalog of latest arrivals and this particular case caught my eye because of it's unique look.
The case arrived in a very nice brand name package. What made it unique is a synthetic leather design which looks like a cover of notebook diary with binding rings. It had a very impressive details with a leather cover made to look like a denim material with a stitching around it and plastic binding rings which actually open up. Inside, the top cover had a soft felt material to make sure it doesn't scratch the screen of Note 3 and also 2 pockets to hold either a credit card or a driver license. The back part of the case had an attached clear TPU case to hold the Note 3. The TPU case has a full wrap around design with a precise cutouts for all the ports and a flexible cover area next to volume and power buttons to make it easy to push.
Overall, this is definitely one interesting looking case which could easy be mistaken from a distance as a notebook diary. Obviously, this case is not intended for rugged protection, although inner tpu case will provide some level of protection. I guess the main purpose of this case is to hide the Note 3 under a cover of a neat looking notebook diary. For less than $4 and considering a decent quality of the material, I think its a good value which comes in 7 different color combos.
