Quick Review: YESOO Ultra Slim Fit Case for the Nokia Lumia 1020; another affordable gem

Finding the right case for your smartphone is never an easy task and in fact, there might not be a right one for all occasions, just one right for the moment. Today, we’re taking a look at another low-cost shell for the Lumia 1020, the YESOO Ultra Slim Fit Flexible Case.

Found on eBay and Amazon (opens in new tab), often under the terms “Ultra Slim Fit Case”, this item offers some low-level protection but sometimes, that’s all you need. It varies in price from $3.99 to $5.99, but you get the point: it’s affordable. Coming in a variety of colors, including green, aqua blue, pink, gray and white, the shell will only protect against minor falls but we’re okay with that.

The design of the case is the classic type we’ve seen for Lumias lately: slide the phone in and snap it on. It leaves the screen area unprotected but the edges of the phone (top and bottom) including the corners are recessed enough to give it some body-protection against a drop. In fact, it’s very well designed in that sense with a “lip” locking in the phone at the top and bottom.

The finish is matte and soft-touch, making the Lumia 1020 feel great in the hand. Due to its thinness and tight fitting form-factor, you’ll barely notice this cover on your device. While it’s far from a rugged case like Speck's, we feel confident that the phone’s body and finish will have that just enough added protection to make us feel assured should the phone take a tumble.

Once again, for $4-6 we’re quite impressed with this case as clearly some thought went in to it. The case has some local resellers in the US (including one in New York), so if you do order it in the States, you’ll have a quick turnaround.

  • Being ultra slim, I am wondering how much protection they really offer
  • I think this case looks good for the price and offers the needed protection. Unfortunately cases around this price range tends to have marterial that stains very easily. I like to get either clear or white but the problem is you cant wash off the dirt and oil. Higher end products dont have this issue. I realized it's better to put more money into a better case so you dont end up getting a new case after a few months.
  • Looks pretty gross looking lol makes the phone look dirty and green.
  • I really like it, but regardless it comes in other color options as I point out.
  • ugh why do all of these companies keep the wireless charging pins exposed? haha there is no point
  • yeah there is. If nokia made a charging dock that has two pins. that woul dbe useful.
  • i dont see that happening. they tend to make docs and car holders universal to all of their lumias. plus they would need exact dimentions of the outside of every case to make it line up properly in the dock
  • Baakwas..
  • Lol... Mast hai..
  • Nice, we will just leave those two wireless charging pins open to remind you that you can't use wireless charging.
  • Matte black please;)!
  • We need some Lumia 925 covers!
  • I just bought a 1020 yesterday, ordered this today!
  • I've been waiting for the nokia brand leather case since ... the beginning of the time. please, nokia, release it now.
  • Not a fan. Don't like the way it doesn't cover the entire phone. Next!
  • Any word on upcoming cyan covers for the 1020...?
  • Ordered it because of this review. Love minimalistic cases.
  • Great looking case. I like the slim lightweigh design, no excess material. I just odered one today.
  • Can I buy this from Italy?
