Today we’ll continue to try and test out various cases for the Nokia Lumia 1020, after all we want to protect this super pricey device. So far, we’ve seen two that cost upwards of $35 though they were clearly over-priced. What about at the other end? Those $5 cases you see on eBay or Amazon.com? We decided to take a look.
The case in question is the Zizo Flexible TPU Injection Case in blue and it can be found any place that sells cheap cases. In fact, they often omit the “Zizo” name and just use the latter part to identify it. That’s because Zizo is a generic case maker out of China and they specialize in low-cost accessories. But just because it’s low cost, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have redeemable qualities.
The Zizo is a soft but firm TPU (or thermoplastic polyurethane) case that is offers both low profile protection and optional colors including blue, clear, and magenta. It falls between the hard plastic “shells” and the soft silicone cases, offering a nice compromise.
We have no immediate complaints about the case, as can be seen in our video review. It doesn’t add bulk, has all the appropriate cut outs, feels nice in the hand and the blue adds a little extra pizazz (though you can opt for clear if you like too). Hey, considering we dropped $5 on this case, we’re quite pleased with it.
Speaking of dropping, it should offer mid-range protection, including shielding the body from mild drops, body scratches and dings. In other words, most regular people should be okay with this level of protection.
If you’re looking for a low-cost, low profile case, the Zizo Flexible TPU Injection Case for the Lumia 1020 might be up your alley. Need more accessories? Make sure you head to the Windows Phone Central Store specialized for the Lumia 1020!
