Last Friday we showed you the bulky but well done E LV Leather Wallet case for the Lumia 1520, and previously we reviewed the Nokia CP-623 flip cover. Today, it’s Amzer’s turn with their Pudding Soft Gel Case/Cover.
Costing around $8 online in either white or black, Amzer is a relatively familiar name and their Soft Gel case is a good deal. It’s not the most protective case, but in exchange you get a light, form fitting cover that will protect your giant Lumia 1520 against small falls.
The case comes with stiff corners, a raised ring around the camera housing (good for protecting the front element) and it covers the buttons. The button covers aren’t too bad though you will need to press slightly harder to activate them once you have the cover on. Speaking of, the Amzer slides on and off with easy and it wraps around the sides of the phone running flush with the display.
There are ample cutouts for the camera, dual LED flash, rear speaker, micro USB charging port and headphone jack. There is no cutout for the charging dots on the lower bottom. Feel of the case in the hand is good with a matte white (or black). There are no added grips to the cover, though it does make holding the Lumia 1520 easier than without a case.
Overall, the Amzer Pudding Soft Gel case for the Lumia 1520 is a good value for $8. It offers moderate protection from scrapes, small falls or scratches to the polycarbonate and it makes holding the device much easier. Since the case is so thin, any added size to the Lumia 1520 is minimal. If this is your style, then you can feel good about ordering the Amzer. Recommended.
