I did a review on the JAVOedge Leater Side Pouch before, and I promised that there would be a review on the Leather Case for the Curve to come! So for your consideration I present this review to you.
JAVOedge has really out done themselves with their latest line of products. This beautiful leather case for the BlackBerry Curve is no exception. The product itself, as usual from JAVOedge, is an incredible deal at $19.95 plus shipping. You can’t beat 20 bucks for a great leather case.
The case features premium black leather, form fitted to hold your Curve perfectly. Unlike the side holster, this case is not universal (sorry 88XX guys!). The case features full cutouts for the screen, keyboard, camera and all the ports on the device. There is no plastic cover for the screen, so I would recommend picking up a screen protector if you decide to go with this case. JAVOedge also sells these, as well as a slew of other companies.
The great thing about this case is that the belt clip is removable. The case initially comes with a screw in the back. and the belt clip in a separate baggy. Simply unscrew the screw, and twist on the clip adapter and you are good to go.
This case is great for protecting your Curve against scrapes and bumps. I know quite a few people who have had issues with the rubber molding coming off of the sides of their Curve, and this case will definitely help prevent that.
Your BlackBerry slides into the case, and a snap button strap holds it securely in place. It really does feel as if there is nothing added to the device once you get used to it. The leather, once broken in, feels great in your hands.
I also really like the material on the back of the case, its kind of a mesh like feel. It looks amazing and feels neat too! As with all real leather products, this case does take a couple of days to break in, so if you are not happy with the feel immediately, remember that it will soften/loosen up dramatically in a short amount of time!
- Great price & quality
- Feels great in your hand
- Optional belt clip
Summary: This is a super product. If you don’t need the functionality of a proximity sensor, I would say its a great pick! Especially considering the price. If this is something that you are interested in, head on over to JAVOedge and pick one up!
