Naztech produces quality leather phone cases and with the newness of the Touch Pro 2, we looked at the Naztech Ultima H5 Case for the AT&T Tilt/HTC TyTN II to see how well it adapted to the Tilt 2/Touch Pro 2.
Cases are slowly reaching the market for the Touch Pro 2/Tilt 2 and the Ultima H5 might give users an option to pursue while they wait.
Follow the break to see how well the Ultima H5 adapted to the Tilt 2/Touch Pro 2.
The Naztech Ultima H5 is not very different than your typical side case with magnetic flap. The case comes in two leather finishes (black and brown). Personally, I'm partial to the brown leather finish and found the build quality of the Ultima to be very solid. The case has ample padding to offer a decent level of protection to the Windows phone.
The case is lined with a combination of leather and felt. Stitching was solid with no loose seams present. My only concern with the design of the Ultima is that the front side of the case is cut shorter than most side cases. This exposes a good bit of the Windows phone that some may be uncomfortable with.
To the bottom of the case, there are corner and center cut outs to help you remove the phone from the case.
The case has a leather wrapped, seven position belt clip that sits securely on your belt.
The magnetic flap is about standard size and holds the Windows phone nicely in place. The magnet is strong enough to hold the flap down securely but weak enough to avoid prematurely waking up the Tilt 2's screen. If Naztech made the flap wider, it would have helped compensate for the shorter cut side of the case.
Fit and Feel
The Ultima case is a little on the bulky side but not to the point of being uncomfortable to wear. The Tilt 2 had a little wiggle room inside the case. The wiggle room wasn't enough to make me feel insecure about using the Naztech case and helped in removing the phone from the case.
The case rode comfortably and securely on the belt. The rotating clip allows for a slightly forward or backwards angle to help comfort if you sit a lot.
While the brown leather construction was solid and held a certain appeal, the Naztech Ultima H5 didn't overly impress me. It is an above average case but it exposes too much of the phone for my tastes. If Naztech would raise the front of the case at least 1/4 of an inch or widen the flap, this case would be vastly improved.
If you don't have an issue with shorter front of this case, it's one to consider. While the case is sized for the original Tilt, the Tilt 2 fit the case good. It is a tad on the bulky side and if you prefer a thinner cut case, the Smartphone Expert's P7 Case might be a good alternative.
