As you know I got a White Nokia 808 PureView and I was quite afraid of the lighter color which may get dirty easily. I was looking for a neat slim case rather than heavy bulky case which came free with the device. Luckily in India Amzer was the only company which had a neat slim and sturdy case for 808. Here is my small review about the Soft Gel case.
This Amzer Soft Gel Skin case comes in both black and white colour.
Appearance and Usability :
The Amzer case comes with thick front case lining which helps the case to easily snap on to the 808 with a bit of pressure. The exterior of the case is covered with matte finish and few glossy design patterns over the camera and the bottom of the case. This case comes with precise cut outs for Xenon flash, Camera sensor and the speaker grill.
The left and right edges of the case comes with textured grip surface. This provides a great feel and also good hold of the phone. The case comes with a rubber shell protection for volume rocker key and Camera key.
The slide to unlock key is left open for easy and quick handling.
The top end of the case is left open for easy access to 3.5mm jack, USB and HDMI slot. The bottom of the case have cutouts for mic and lanyard.
- Good protection for camera
- Great grip all around the case while the phone in Landscape or portrait
- Very elegant design
- Easy to access ports
- Hard to press the two stage camera key since its covered with hard rubber casing.
- Camera bump of the case comes with glossy exterior which turns out to be very prone to scratch and fingerprints.
- Not much protection for the display
Other than some small annoyances this is the highly recommended case for the Nokia 808. Since the official case cuts off speaker volume when the lens cap is closed . We recommend the Amzer Soft Gel TPU Gloss Skin Case for Nokia 808 PureView if you want something slim and which doesn’t make your phone look so bulky . The case is priced at Rs.436 in India can be ordered at the Amzer Online store by clicking this link.
