We have seen a lot many products from Muvit especially made for Xperia devices likes Muvit Essential pack for Xperia Z1 which ncludes Leather Flip Case and Sony Car Charger, Muvit Sony Xperia Z wireless charging pack today we have got Muvit miniGEL case for Xperia Z1 as our review item. We like Muvit products and hope you also like it.

Muvit miniGEL case for Xperia Z1 is like another back case for a phone, but the difference is it is made up of rubber so soft and smooth and whose back is a bit thick so provides solid grip. Ascendeo.fr sent us this Muvit miniGEL case for Xperia Z1 as a review sample unit. It is priced at € 14.90 inc VAT and is shipped worldwide.

As usual Muvit use same silver box packaging for their products with a purple shade. Have a look at the front cover of the box it says “soft and skin-tight case for Xperia Z1”.

Back side of Muvit miniGEL case is a bit thick, good it is as it provides very strong grip while holding it and placing it on rough surface. It do draws scratches just like another cases if used roughly. It is of translucent brown color, looks great on Xperia Z1.

Accessibility 

All corners are covered just like bumper case. Perfect opening for hearing speaker and notification light area.

Power button is clearly visible and is not covered while external camera shutter button and volume rocker keys are covered with a soft plastic layer so you can press them easily. No problem is faced while pressing them but it will look unusual to you in starting. Camera shutter key has to press a but hard. SIM card slot is completely covered up, to open it you need to remove the case.

The best advantage of Muvit miniGEL case for Xperia Z1 is that magnetic charging slot is not covered up you can use EC21 magnetic charging cable to charge your phone while case is on and even microSD card slot area is also opened. But on putting the case on Xperia Z1 and placing it on Sony Dock DK31, it was not inserting properly so can’t be used. Though while EC21 magnetic charging cable was connected it was falling off very frequently so it seems case has got some issues due to thickness to hold the cable.

Proper opening of 3.5 mm headphone jack is there in case.

    I buy one and indeed the opening for the EC-21 isn’t good I had to cut a larger one to get my EC-21 plugged well. However as the test mention it’s pain in the ass that almost no covers are compatible w/ DK-31 (even w/ the cover slot, or w/o anything) but at least I can “easily” extract the EC-21.

    Cheers

      I have almost every possible case present in market. None works on DK31 sadly. I have taken out EC21 cable and charges my phone with it after opening case front flap cover.
