Review: Leather Style Wallet/Stand Case for Nexus 4

The wallet case for the Nexus 4 offers unique protection
If you have managed to get your hands on the Nexus 4, you'll know how delicate it is, and how urgently you need a case for the phone. However, online, the official bumpers have gone out of stock, and they were the only official protection you could buy.

Now though, there's an abundance of cases and protection for your Nexus 4, and as we saw in the official Nexus 4 review, they come in all shapes and sizes.

The wallet is held firmly in place by this button
The reason you're here today though is because of the leather-style wallet/stand case for the Nexus 4. In many ways, it's the best of both worlds, a fine looking wallet to hold your cards and notes, and a fantastic piece of protection for all sides of the device.

It is secured by a button which holds the front and back firmly in place, however I was slightly concerned that the plastic and sewn edging would scratch the front of the Nexus 4, so if you're looking to get this item, I recommend you buy yourself a screen protector too, just in case (no pun intended).

The wallet case for the Nexus 4 gives you full
access to all major ports and buttons
The wallet case has slots for up to 3 cards, and behind the card holder is a un-tucked edge where you can store some notes. As for the Nexus 4, you snap it in to the holder and it gives you access to all the major ports, like the USB charger, headphone jack and the power and volume keys.

Surprisingly it doesn't add that much bulk to the phone, and it pretty light-weight. How well it will protect your Nexus 4 when you drop it to the ground though is still anybody's guess, but I wouldn't imagine it would end well.

You can listen to your music while your Nexus 4 is tucked away
However, it will provide protection from the regular bump and scratch, and if you never have enough space for both your wallet and your phone, I recommend this case for you as it is one of the best Nexus 4 accessories. It costs £14.95 and is a bargain, if you ask me.
