If anyone knows me, they know that I have all sorts of hard to miss ringtones and a variety of cases. Not just any cases either, I’m somewhat picky with my cases. I have some cases I really like and I decided to check out Case Mate’s Signature Flip in black for my BlackBerry Z10. And while my adorable Z10 is an oreo, it’s also skinned as well so I hope this case will fit it.
Case Mate’s Signature Flip is made from genuine leather. I like the professional look of the case, and how when you open it, you can see and feel the extremely soft microfiber it is lined with. As I look at all the sides, the craftsmanship of this case is really nice, and the case is both elegant yet durable. This case is a part of the original Case Mate collection. I like the way the leather is patterned on the outside of the case and how it’s very well constructed.
Placing my BlackBerry Z10 in the case, with the skin on, I was very happy to see that my phone fit in the case and was encased nicely. It fits in perfect. All buttons and ports are open as well as the speakers. I like that the camera is left open too for pictures, the screen is open, and yet the phone is protected, and I can charge my Z with the case open or closed, I love that. And I have access to my earjack port, so I can listen to music with a wired headset or use a charm on it. The volume keys and sleep key are also available and easily accessible.
Closing the case is easy. It shuts with two little leather clasps fitting over the top of the phone. If I open it, I can carry a conversation with the top open, which is almost reminiscent of the old phones you could talk on. Even though the top of the case isn’t part of the phone, it’s very classic
The case opens easily when you gently pull on the two leather clasps on the top. It fits perfect, every part of the case designed to fit and protect. It’s as though my phone were part of the case. I love how it’s easy to open but doesn’t fall open. There has to be some effort made to actually open the case. This is very important should my phone take a fall off the counter or desk.
Pros: The case fits even with a skin on the Z10. The case is thin, sleek, and professional. The microfiber keeps the screen and phone protected. I can charge the phone even in the case. All ports and buttons are accessible.
Cons: I really love the case, and now I don’t want to take it off.
You can purchase the Case Mate Signature Flip for the BlackBerry Z10 from Case Mate for $50.00. Not bad for the great looking case you can take in the office, to your meetings, and everywhere else. It speaks sophistication and simplicity. This is definitely one of the better cases that I have placed on my BlackBerry Z10, and it’s going to be one I use most.
