For those of you who don’t know, I’m very clumsy.
I drop pretty much everything I pick up. Seriously.
So, you can imagine how much panic was mixed in with joy when I bought my iPhone 5s earlier this year – how was I going to make sure this precious item remained immune to my dropping habits?
Well, for a while I just wore it around my neck in a yellow purse, which made me look like a massive Norman, and kept swinging around like a sick pendulum whenever I did anything fun.
It was also a massive invitation to muggers (probably).
No, thanks. Not sustainable.
Then the lovely ladies & gents at Mr Nutcase came to my rescue, and asked me to create a personalised case from their website!
“and heav’n and angels sing”
Mr Nutcase specialises in producing fast, fun personalised phone cases – for most makes/models on the market. In fact, if they don’t list your model, you can even contact them to ask if they could supply it anyway.
After a few hours of browsing through my photos I made a selection for my case. I went for the “Executive Flip Leather Style” in white, as you can see, with several pictures on. This retails at £19.95 normally, with free P&P.
If you’re low on inspiration, you can even select from their gallery of previously designed cases (including some pretty funky patterns which did tempt me).
As I’m a crazy dog lady, I picked photographs of the boys, placed my order and sat back to wait.
To my surprise, the case arrived the next day!
Not only was I stunned with the speed of delivery, I was also really happy with the quality. The case is sturdy and well made, plus the images are great quality. The flip case fastens with magnetic pop studs (I prefer this to velcro) and is a really snug, secure fit for my iPhone.
I often complain about phone cases interfering with ability to film/take photos but somehow I have found this to be different with this case. I’m not sure if its because its white, or if its because of the design, but it hasn’t really affected photo quality at all.
In fact the only thing that I’m not keen on is that the flip is vertical – so when I’m on the phone the bottom flap keeps bouncing up and hitting my chin, which is actually more funny than annoying.
It’s also not possible to charge your phone on a docking station, or use your in-car AUX cable whilst the case is on, but that’s a small price to pay for keeping your “nut” safe and sound – especially when you’re as clumsy as I am!
I must admit that since getting the case I have spilled a coffee all over my phone and dropped it both down the stairs and out of my car door.
Thats all in 2 weeks.
The coffee didn’t go near the actual phone, and wiped off the case instantly.
The two times I dropped it, the phone wasn’t even slightly disturbed, and inside its shell its snug and pristine!
It’d be nice if they offered a book-style flip case, but I love my Mr Nutcase cover!
Their service is also second to non – I did make a silly mistake with my case, which they contacted be about as I hadn’t actually realised. They resolved it super quick, and my case still arrived the next day!
Their Customer Service in that respect is wonderful!
