Default Vaja RI051 Pics

Please Login to Remove!

Just photos, no review. It was for my better half and she's very happy with it which is all that really matters in this case ;)

Anyway, we'll see how it does in the long run...

The color scheme was picked for her. The colors here are fairly accurate. It's orange and a chocolate-y brown.

Let's see... it's the Combined Aniline (Bitter Chocolate with Orange Rust floater).

Those are good pictures. I was wondering how the flip case would fit the 8700c.

Any complaints?

She says that you get less range of motion on the wheel. It's also trickier to take a quick look at the screen to see who is calling.

takeshi, does the better half have any problems keeping the flap out of the way while talking on the phone?

How about the plastic rubbing against her cheeck? I always hate that in a flip-style case.

I just ordered the R1052. I am not a big "flap" fan.

It's a little awkward. It can either dangle there or you can hold it against the back of the case if your hands aren't too small.

I haven't heard of any complaints about the plastic screen protector but does have a very slight lip at the bottom...

I have had mine now for two weeks (all black outside and camel on the inside) and, yes, the flap is a pain in the arse when on the phone. However, I am getting better at quickly doing a reverse magnetic clip whilst answering the phone. The plastic clear-vue display cover does result in slightly more glare. But recall that I have InvisibleShield on my 8700c, so double the coverage might cause more glare in any event.

I love the case. Highly recommended!!

Just an FYI.

I received the replacemet RI051 case from Vaja.

It's literally the exact same case as the RI052. They simply add/sew the flip cover to the top.

Now we need Vaja to produce a case that accomodates the extended battery fat cover.

I'll post my new 8700g w/ my Vaja later today or tomorrow - but one thing I noticed that I didn't before is how the escape button is blocked. Weird. Instead they have that translucent thingie covering it.

One thing that I have noticed....it kind of chewed up the sides of my invisible sheild screen cover. The culprit....the stitching on the sides of the cases screen display cut-out. No big deal....mine is still really tight so maybe it will get better with time.

The side convenience key is also covered.
