The great guys over at Noreve have sent us over the Nokia Lumia Dark Vintage case for the Lumia 1520

Once again quality is simply great,to hold to touch and the smell of material is quite nice as its new.

Again on opening the package the quality and presentation is super,nicely presented box and a pouch to store the case should it not be in use.

I love the way the packaging is well designed and presented it gives that feeling of whats inside even before its open and thats quality.

With noreve all you get is quality and the choice to customise your case as always,this is an extra that if offered which is and added bonus if you like to personalise..

Onto the case now.


As you can see its a nice slate gray colour from the range noreve offer,its nicely textured and feels good in hand from all sides and its also comfortable.




The top of the case has one flap over to one side slightly different to the 1320 case we reviewed due to the position of the headphone socket,this leaves ample access to the socket on the 1520 and keeping the device protected too..



The end of the case its soft and not tough and folds easily that in mind it again leave ample space to gain access with usb or charger not giving way to snags either way so its a hassle free opening whilst again keeping the end of the device protected too..Also the speaker grille is visible and leads to no distortion of sound at all which is good,this applies to whichever way the case is faced..No sound volume is lost.



The back of the case is plain and again its a nice to hold and comfortable,it also gives plenty of space for the camera and flash,not getting in the way as some cases can do so which lead to bad pictures especially when using flash.Also at the back on top is the third microphone again no interference..


The right side of the case provides enough access to all the keys which are a typical lumia layout the case does not get in the way and it also protects the keys from getting marked or scratched there is a gap in the between the camera key and volume toggle and power key to make things easier..



On the left is mainly plain and one area free to gain access to your sim and sd card .no need to remove the case either which is a bonus and leaves ample room to swap and remove the trays…..the phone is well protected on this side mostly taken up by the case.



The case has noreve embossed on the inside and a nice texture to it,feels nice and can be easily cleaned should you manage to get dirt on it..



The 1520 fits nice and snug in the case and is not loose either the case offers great protection with a class look and feel to it,its not hard to remove the case either which is good some cases can be a bit tricky and clunky.

Overall  i preferred this case over the 1320 case due to its feel,its a really nice case and is comfortable all round….



The two cases offer great protection and ease of access above is the 1320 case to the left and the 1520 case to the right.
