Quick Review – Leather case for the Nokia Lumia 1020 with lens protector

Although Nokia themselves have not released that “premium leather case” for the Lumia 1020, a third party company evidently has. We reported on it last week, revealing that the site Gadget2Us was selling various versions of the case, including brown “leather”. We use quotes because it’s not real leather, but rather a cloth layer that simulates the look and feel. Hey, what did you want for less than $10?

Luckily, Nokia’s Simran Singh Sethi was kind enough to send us one to take a look at. How is it? Head past the break for quick video and some photos.

Overall, the case is not bad. The flesh-toned brown is a little off putting, but you can order it in an assortment of colors, include white, red or green. The flip cover for the 41 MP camera is of course the main selling point here and it’s done quite well. It has some fake stitching and ‘Lumia’ written across. It’s a neat little addition that adds some class to the case (and our Lumia 1020).

We’re not sure if we’ll keep using this brown one, but we are awaiting a white colored version, which we may consider. Overall, it’s not a pricey investment and if you were looking for something unique, this would be it.

Head to Gadget2Us to look at their assortment in case you’re interested.
