Lumia 1520 Case Review: Minisuit Rugged Kickstand Case

27

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is an absolutely massive phone. With hardware so impressive (and a fairly sizable price tag), you’re going to want to take excellent care of it. And the Lumia 1520’s beautiful 6-inch screen also makes the device excel at video playback. Failing to take advantage of those playback capabilities would be a form of neglect, you might say. So perhaps a method of propping the 1520 up for hands-free playback is in order.

Enter Minisuit, a company who makes a wide range of mobile accessories including cases for the Microsoft Surface tablets. Minisuit offers a solution to both protecting the Lumia 1520 and keeping it upright during movie playback: the Rugged Hybrid Kickstand Case for Lumia 1520. I’ve been using the case exclusively with my new 32 GB Lumia 1520, and come away impressed with its quality and value.

Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see Rayman Fiesta Run sitting there and with a surprise.
