    Nice Leather phone case

    I pick leather phone cases because they allow me to keep my phone out of my pocket without the worry of a clip-on plastic case falling off, or me knocking the phone out of the case. This case also protects the phone from water very well. Putting the clip for this case on a swivel is a great addition to the case. As I can move the case out of the way when I need to get to my keys or whatever else I have in my pocket. The only negative thing I have to say about this clip, and is why I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars, is that the clip is not as strong as I would want it to be. It is easy for the case to slide off of your belt when you are moving. Though I have learned how to change a bit of the movements that cause the case to slide off. Should this case ever be damaged to the point I can not use it, I will buy another one to replace it.

    Excellent sound for the size

    Most audiophiles should agree that this Bluetooth speaker has excellent sound for its size. This particular speaker in only one of a series of larger and smaller Bluetooth speakers offered by Sony. Easy to operate, appreciable battery life and should you wish to use as a wireless speaker to your cell phone, it's simple to pair with your phone. I would have given a five star rating if the speaker had included a remote control, as you have to push a telephone icon on the speaker's control panel to use the speakerphone function. A remote control feature, even an app for a smartphone allowing remote control rather than including a physical remote control, would allow one to control the speaker volume, on/off power and speakerphone function from a distance, rather than having to touch the speaker's controls.

    Protects & keeps phone handy.

    Smartphones are pricey, easily damaged and hard to fish out of pockets. This is my second case of this type, the first lasted 5 years & kept my phone protected from rain while making it easier & faster to retrieve for a call because of the belt-clip & secure with the magnetic close flap. It also looks much better professionally than having a phone sagging my coat pockets with it’s weight. 5 years the first one lasted, did I mention that? Nominal cost for protecting a several hundred dollar phone and yes, I do have a hard case as well, but it’s not enough.

    Nice case, but doesn't always attach securely

    Disappointed
    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The case was what I wanted. The front flap closes easily and is magnetized. Phone slips in and out easily even with the phone case on. The clip on the back of the case that attaches it to a belt or the waist line of slacks or skirt, is not as tight as it could be and it too easily moves right or left. This combination causes the phone and case to not connect securely when attaching to slacks or a skirt waist band causing it to slip off from time to time. It is probably more secure on a belt, but I rarely wear one.

    Sturdy, leather phone case

    Bought the case to carry my iPhone 4S with Mophie battery pack (makes it fatter than a normal 4S). Since there were no cases specifically made to attach a Mophie-equipped 4S, I had to choose a generic "large size" phone case. This was the sturdiest design that I found (of only two available at BestBuy). At first, this case was a bit tight for the phone, but it has since relaxed and is now a great, snug fit. The only down side to this design is the belt clip does not have a spring loaded thumb lever to open up the clip to get it onto a belt. It is, however, firmly attached, once you are able to wrangle the clip onto your belt.

    Product not as described

    The product description said genuine top-grain leather (it said it three times), package said synthetic leather. I had purchased the same item 3-4 years ago and was very pleased. I ordered a new one because my old one was getting worn. When I received the new one it was MUCH lower quality than the old one. I returned it and got a partial refund from Best Buy. They refunded the purchase price less the return postage ($5.49), even though it was returned because of their deceptive description.

    Great phone carrier!

    My husband loves this phone carrier. He had one similar to this for his previous phone and we searched online for similar ones before settling on this one at the store for his new phone. He loves it. It's well made and does the trick. It's easy to use, simple to get the phone out when it needs to be answered. He can easily slip the phone back in when he's done w/his call. It fits easily on any belt. Doesn't have to worry about the carrier slipping off his belt getting in/out of the car (which was a problem w/a previous carrier he had). Great product.

    I use an iPhone 5 with a Mophie case and it fits in this case with a small amount of room to spare. Very good construction EXCEPT on the stitching over the tip of the belt clip. This is my fourth case (I like it and it works well) however its Achilles Heel is the stitching on the tip of the belt clip. I only get 4-6 months and then I have to purchase a replacement. Of course, maybe that's the plan.....

    My expectations were low for this holster due to the low price, but after about a month I'm very pleased with it. It seems well built, but we'll see whether I break the belt clip, which I'm prone to do. The phone snaps firmly into the holster; while this makes it impossible to release with one hand, it does give a sense of security that the phone will not slide out as happens with some holsters. My only (minor) complaint is that the belt clip sometimes digs into my skin if my shirt isn't tucked in, but it's not a big deal.

    New Hip Holster for iPhone

    Overall, this is just what I wanted with two minor issues. The belt clip is a bit too loose and it is hard to get it to slide over my thick belt. I believe in time it will be easier to get it attached, but I do worry the hinge may one day fail. We will just have to wait and see. One thing I do like about it is that there is a slot where one can store one's business cards. Great idea and very helpful.

    I purchased this for my husband. He has an Otter box with a belt clip, but the belt clip is large and he was always catching it on something and breaking the plastic clip. This case holds the phone with the Otter box case without sticking out, the metal clip has proven to be much more durable. Otter box replaced the belt clip 3 times for us, so no complaints for them. This is just a better fit for his situation.

    My new Galaxy S5 needed a new case, so I tried this one. There were two things I ended up not liking about it. * It was a little too small. The phone was very snug in the case. The phone definitely wasn't going to slip out. I probably should have realized that before I bought it, but I didn't. * Maybe because it was so snug, it kept coming off my belt. If I couldn't trust that it was going to stay with me, then why have it. I returned it within a week.

    After completing a recent phone purchase I asked my sales person if they carried any type of holder. I guess I'm not that multi-functional but I did not want to carry this nice new phone in a pants pocket. He directed me to the Insignia and it has been what I hoped it would be - a secure, safe way to carry the phone! Unfortunately these things are getting harder to find so kudo's to Best Buy for carrying these product aids!

    Decent holder

    It fits my BlackBerry Z10 perfectly. It looks good and stays on my belt well. The only negative is that because the phone fits so snugly and the slot to push it up out of the holster is not as deep as it could be, getting it out of the holster quickly to answer a call is tricky and takes some doing; maybe as I break it in more it will get easier. But I feel my phone is really safe in the case and it's not likley to get damaged nor stolen.

    I didn't want to carry around my cell phone in a pocket but also didn't know what might be available for a carrying case. This is a good quality case and holds/protects the phone quite well. Only a couple of minor negatives - belt clip is a bit difficult to use and depending on which side the phone is carried, the case can sometimes get tangled in the seat belt. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase.

    I was looking for a holder for my flip-open Trac-Phone. Ran across this one, glad I did! I was beating my phone up when it would fall out of my shirt pocket. Annoying having the phone in my pocket! It seems to made of quality leather & the clip swivels. Magnetic clasp works nice too & doesn't flop open. Very easy to get the phone out. Fills the bill for what I wanted!

    I wanted a case that kept my phone handy and secure and fit my phone well. This one clips on my belt and keeps my phone where I can get to it sitting or standing. The ends stretch enough so that it has fit my last two phones. My current phone (Galaxy S8) fits snug but comes out easily and the magnetic catch keeps the case closed.

    Good Holster, weak belt clip

    I have had several of these phone holsters that fit my IPhone 6s. I have had the same problem with each of them. The belt clip wears out to fast. The spring steel is not strong enough to last. They need to use a better quality spring steel for the belt clip. The last one that I bought only lasted 3 weeks before I started seeing the phone holster come off of my belt when I was doing various activities.

    This is a nice cell phone case for cell phones that are not Samsung or Apple or others that have multiple options specifically for their phones. It holds phones that are 5 3/4" X 2 3/4 " or less. The clip rotates so you can clip it on in different positions. The case is a little thick but provides good protection.

    Does the Job for my iPhone 6s

    I've been frustrated by the the unavailability of horizontal "Belt" style cases for the newer iPhone that my company supplied me. I had one that broke, the clip was plastic. Then I found this one with a metal clip that has proven much more durable, surviving the same kind of accident that broke the earlier case. I'd recommend this one if you don't like the all plastic cases.
