Whether you’re a millionaire and want your case covered in diamonds or just a regular guy looking for a stylish leather case, Noreve got your phone covered!
Getting a nice protective case for your Padfone 2 and the tablet is not that easy. We’re not spoiled like iPhone users with thousands of different choices. There’s some however, and some of them really nice and exclusive.
Since 2004, Noreve has specialised in manufacturing high quality, leather cases for mobile devices. Unique design and southern French style permeate the whole of the collection which is available in several ranges.
Most of it can be customized and let’s you choose color and material like “exclusive vintage texture” or “varnished leather selection”. The cool thing is that there actually handmade (and no, not by children) and you can order them directly from their website to be shipped all over the world. Nice, Yes?
Can I finally feel equally stylish as my noob iPhone friends?
So I decided to try out one of their cases for my Padfone 2 and my tablet for a week and se how they work out. I wont do a unboxing of it, but they come very exclusively packed in a red and black box. Both of them in a soft red bag protecting them.
Lets talk about the tablet first. For me it’s the most important one. The one thing I really have been missing for my Padfone 2 tablet is a real “iPad like” case that lets me get to my phone without having to take the tablet out of it’s case. And it looks like this is finally it!
The case smells leather and I can see right away that this is custom-made to fit the Padfone 2 tablet perfectly. The backcover is hardened and then covered with the custom-made leather of your choice. It looks and feels just like an exclusive book.
“Yeah, I’ve got you covered”
The Padfone 2 tablet fits like glove and the padded front cover closes like a book, protecting the screen just like it should. It even has a magnetic lock that clicks with that sound of “Yeah, I’ve got you covered”.
This is a case where you can leave your tablet in forever. It’s just as easy as before to slide out your phone in and out. Just snap up the magnetic lock and slide out your phone. This case is made by people who know how the padfone 2 tablet works and made a case for you, the user.
It’s sturdy yet smooth to hold due to the padded leather. It feels like it’s protecting my Padfone 2 tablet and it looks exclusive. Like most cases it can be used like a stand for your tablet. The big difference is Noreve decided not to invent the wheel again.
Just open the cover, detach the lower part of your tablet and it stands. (Some of you might remember the ASUS case.. You had to be a rocket scientist to use it, and even they had problems). And it stands firmly with three cutouts to adjust the viewing angle to your choice.
This is the first case in a long time for any tablet I reviewed that actually got this right – I’m impressed
So is there anything negative to say? No, actually I can’t find anything bad with the Noreve hand-made case for the Padfone 2 tablet. If you are in the market for one – look no further. Visit www.noreve.com and order one with the color and material that fits your style!
So what about the phone?
I’m not normally using covers for my phone but that has actually changed since I tried out the one from Noreve. You could however do just fine without one as long as you have a cover for your tablet and then just slide in your phone for protection.
Same principle as with the tablet case. hardcase covered in soft leather with a front flip-up cover with padded leather to protect your screen. No magnetic lock on this one, just a piece holding down your phone and snaps the front cover in place.
Like with the Padfone 2 tablet case, it’s custom-made to fit the phone with cutouts for booth the speaker and the backside camera. The speaker cutout even have a little dust cover grill attached – nice touch that makes it look very stylish.
The Padfone 2 slides perfectly in the case, and you can tell it’s custom-made for this phone – it always stays there firmly locked in no matter what I do. I found my myself more and more just walking with it in my hand as the case feels and looks so good.
So what’s negative? Not much to be honest. But if I should try to find anything it would be that the cover opens in the bottom and covers the charging port. This means your case has to be open when you charge your phone. Why did you miss that Noreve? You made it right on the tablet case. I’m confused..
This is of course no deal breaker. But it matters.
Finally I can feel equally stylish as my noob iPhone friends.
Regardless, the Padfone 2 hand-made leather case is a no brainer if you are looking for a stylish case for your Padfone 2. The overall build quality is top of the line and the cases both looks and feels exclusive. They protect booth your tablet and your phone perfectly but my personal favorite is the tablet case – it feels just like holding an expensive book in your hand. Finally I can feel equally stylish as my noob iPhone friends.
