I recently acquired one of these cases for my beloved Xperia Z, now typically I stay away from cases and tend to run my phones “naked” but after my mishap with my old Nexus 4 where the back glass mysteriously cracked I decided its best to have a case on a all glass phone.
I searched online and found that the majority of cases where shipping from China and would take 8-10+ days to be delivered to me, so I did the next best thing and searched the forums. I was able to get a MINT condition black leather nillkin flip case for $10.
I was expecting some flimsy, cardboard feeling case but figured for $10 its better them nothing.
To my amazement upon receiving it I realized that it was made to last. The flap that covers the screen is a durable cover that had a “leathery” front but a soft micro fiber inner lining, the part that attaches to the phone is more like a leather wrapped slip on case with the same inner lining as the screen cover. The “hinge” feels sturdy and like it’s not going to wear out after opening it once or twice.
Overall I’d recommend this case to anyone needing one, even brand-new it’s still under the $20 mark and fits and feels amazing. This is definitely a case that I can see myself looking for whenever I get a new phone.
