This is my first review, so be easy on me
I have always had really good experience with Fortte's cases and service. I have always had my blackberry suited up in one and have never looked back.
This particular case is the common case they have for most Blackberries. The standard Flip case.
When I received the packaged case I was very satisfied with the packaging as well as the quality. I opened it to see a pale brown/tan sandy color (I guess that is why they call it Sand). The feel of it in my hands was very sturdy and I feel it has a very good amount of cushion. The inside has a thick felt lining offering a good amount of protection. The flap has a magnetic snap closure with the logo embossed and their small metal emblem above it, thus giving it the sleeper function.
This case has the metal locking clip. It is wrapped in the sand leather but allows for you to turn it either up, down, right or left, locking it into place. I found that I like this clip the best, helps if you need to move your case around. It has a very low profile when worn and would fit on any belt size. Overall, easy to wear and is easy to take on and off your belt.
Here are the pictures I have. I am a complete klutz and as I was taking them I dropped my camera...Do'h. If I am able to fix it I will take more photos.
I have not quite mastered the art of the flash and holding still, so if these are a bit fuzzy I am so sorry.
This is a really good case for the 8100, Fortte not only excel's in design but in customer service as well. They have so many leather colors to choose from it is a great way to get a customized experience.
Rating: 4 out of 5 Berries
Pros: Wonderful quality, amazing service, good protection and cushion, I would choose this case hands down.
Cons: There is a tiny bit of misalignment with the side buttons. This does not restrict the use of them but to some could be an irritating flaw.
