Sony Xperia Z1 needs no introduction as you all know it well Sony shipped it in many regions with different accessories like Xperia Z1 C6902 ( Black ) handset was shipped along with MH-750 white earphones which we also got with our Xperia SL Lt26ii a year back and with some Xperia Z1 C6903 ( Black ) handset a black earphone piece was shipped and in many regions with carrier device they didn’t ship earphones along with the Xperia Z1, God knows what Sony’s marketing team is upto, but that’s kind of weird.

Muvit, a big name when it comes to Sony Xperia accessories. Black Muvit Stick n’ Stand case for Xperia Z1 was shipped by Sony free here in India worth $50 or INR 2990. Muvit Essential pack for Xperia Z1 is the next big product from them. It includes a black leather flip case ( book style ) and a Sony car charger with a micro USB cable.

Last time we reviewed Muvit Sony Xperia Z wireless charging pack, which is a good wireless charging solution for Xperia Z owners. Ascendeo.fr sent us this Muvit Essential pack for Xperia Z1 as a review sample unit. It is priced at € 39.90 inc VAT and is shipped worldwide.

Muvit Black Leather flip case for Xperia Z1

We have already reviewed two flip cases for Xperia Z1 from Roxfit and RockPhone CN. This case is very much similar to Xperia Z Smart Pack Flip Case by Roxfit. ( Do check it you will find a lot smiliarity in both )

Case is made up of fine leather grain like material gives you a feel of solid plastic material and back side is made up a solid plastic material. It is stitched with a white thread at its all sides front and back. No logo is embossed on front side.

Magnetic flip closer is provided to close the case automatically with a credit card slot inside the front flap. Inner lining of the case is made up of soft velvet to protect screen from any rough scratches.

All ports are easily accessible while case is on though no hearing speaker opening is provided on front flap of case which is strictly essential in a flip case. Case’s adjuster which hold the Xperia Z1 inside case are quite smooth so don’t worry about any side of your phone being scrapped by them.

Case seems a bit thick while closed. Though feel solid in hand but it’s bulky and thick. Another weird thing an opening for secondary microphone is provided at back of case but for hearing speaker is missing on front flap.

Unfortunately if you are thinking of putting the phone with case on Sony Dock DK31 then is’t not possible it falls easily but while case front flap is open you can use any port of Xperia Z1. Check pic blow.
