Have a look at the naked pic of Xperia Z and Xperia SP Leather Case by Noreve.

 

Both cases are stitched with a fine thread of the same color as of cases and leather has a very smooth touch.

 

Texture

Xperia Z Leather Case by Noreve is an upside down leather case, stitched at the bottom flap. 

Inner lining is very smooth and has Noreve logo embossed everywhere. No scratches on screen from the inner lining.

It has a fine leather texture on upside flap of case with a steel logo embossed on top right corner of case as “half-moon and a dot” as a brand identification mark.

Xperia Z case has the same texture as on upside flap cover and as on backside.

Xperia SP Leather Case by Noreve has the similar structure just like Xperia Z case but instead it has smooth leather finish on upside down flaps rather than any textured surface.

At the back of Xperia Z and Xperia SP Leather Case by Noreve, Noreve St.Tropez is embossed in silver color.

Accessibility

Upside flap of case don’t have any magnetic closure which we would have been preferred. It just closes itself, but when trying to open it by its self closure strip, we find it very uncomfortable to do so.

Self Closure in Case

All the ports of phone are fully accessible after opening the upside flap of case.

At the back the holes for rear camera-flash and the microphone is at proper place no objection in their positions.

Speakers stainless steel mesh protector is provided at the back of Xperia SP leather case, to protect any unwanted damage to the speakers.

Durability

Leather used for making these Xperia Z and Xperia SP Leather Case by Noreve and can sustain daily wear and tear, though washable by the leather cleaning liquid, we did and it was fine.

Both the upside down flaps are strong enough to protect it from any daily damage, don’t expect it to protect your phone from drop.

Pros

  • Premium fine quality leather.
  • Easy Accessibility to all ports of phone.
  • Light Weight.
  • Strong enough for daily usage.

Cons

  • Difficulty in opening the self closure flaps.
  • Speaker volume reduced in Xperia SP due to stainless steel mesh protector.
  • Stretch marks at the bottom stitched strip.
  • Uncomfortable to touch the onscreen soft keys of phone.

      What type of case you need ? Well certainly all leather flip covers will cover the backlight illumination bar.
      But if you can get any rubber back case from which back light is visible that would be great, check this pic it is of our Xperia SL having back illumination bar open – https://www.gizmobolt.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Xperia-SL-Roxfit-Back-Cover.-1024×768.jpg
