Tough Case for Sony Xperia Z
Not so tough
I like the tough, hard back and sides. Also like the front bezel to keep the screen sunken so it doesn't get scratched whilst face down. buttons on side need a bit of extra push to work. Problem - where the cut away is in the top of the case for the headphone jack, there isn't any of the hard plastic case, just a small strip of the rubber insert. This meant when I dropped my phone, it was pushed aside, allowing the ground to reach my phones corner and crack the screen.
tough and dirty
i got this case just recenty. (orange/gray version). on the second day of using it, the case already has like an orange/yellowish tinge on the rubber material. which i cant remove, i tried washing it with plain water but to no avail.(the phone is usually just in my pocket most of the time). dont buy this if you dont want your very sexy xperia z turn into one fugly phone. i think the only good version of this case i the black one, since its the only one with black rubber. anyway it achieves its "tough" purpose. just gets ugly very quick.
Saved my xperia Z from a fall from 1,8m to a wooden floor (not the most hazardous ground - far from solid concrete). The phone didn't even notice. Snug, relatively small and nice looking, provides access to usb and head phone port. Provides good hold on the phone.
Excellent buy, worth the money
I love this case! It has protected my phone from being damaged many times. It was well worth the price.
Great Product-Excellent Quality-don't buy if you have a dock station
As always I was pleased with my casemate purchase.....the quality of the tough case has improved over the years....better access to headphones and charging ports plus seamless use of peripheral buttons is ie power and volume. I have two issues- which led to four instead of five stars- 1st- If you own a dock station then the case must be remove in-order to use it and 2nd I've only had it for a week and the case has gotten quite dirty from normal handling ie hand to pocket and back to hand....otherwise it offers great protection for the phone...i especially like the raised edges which prevents the screen from hitting the ground upon falling.
