Our latest case from Noreve has arrived and its for the BlackBerry Classic which has yet not reached our shores but can be imported,same applies to the BlackBerry Leap and the Powerhouse Passport which even surprised me,this device has a battery you just cant kill in a day which is saying something..

Onto the case itself which is a flip case and of course made from quality leather and comes packed in a nice box and pouch.presentation always has been great with Noreve cases and so has quality as seen below the box is the typical red colour and inside will be the case and the pouch for storage so when the case is not in use it will be kept dirt and dust free…



Onto the case in general starting from top and bottom..

First off its got a nice feel in the hand and also grippy to hold which is good the BlackBerry Classic is not cheap but the build quality is quite tough and the case does protect it all round but when open you may be unlucky on how it lands but the inside of the case does overlap the screen so you should be fine..The top has a clip which closes tight and access to the power key headphone socket and mic. Also on top there is cut outs for the earpiece and the notification LED so when closed you can still see notifications.

The bottom provides access for the USB port and speaker grille and both front and back are joined here with a single flap of leather and its quite a seamless affair with no bulky joints..Also present is the Noreve logo on the bottom right hand side slightly raised from the case itself,this is not a problem but may catch in things depending on pocket etc..


The back of the case is rather a plain affair as most cases would be due to placement of speakers etc,all we have is the camera and flash at our disposal here and that’s all there is too it,front and back of the case are quite plain in general here but there is a nice look to it making up for that. When opened with no product inside we can see the Noreve logo embedded into the case top and bottom and there is that lovely smell of fresh leather to boot..

On the left and right sides we are offered ample space to access the volume keys and ports for Sim card and Micro SD slots,whilst shut volume keys are not really easy to touch but there is no need but the important sim tray and sd slots are easy to access,the device is almost fully covered here offering great protection all round and should see you safe if dropped..

Overall the case is quite nice and fitting it feels good in hand an not much bulk is added compared to what is on offer and it looks well to giving it that business look the case comes with all the features required to make it a non invasive experience on your points of need with all ports and buttons at hand with nothing obscured..
