## In The Box
The case arrived in a well packaged box, especially for the actual product being meant to protect your device. Inside of the box we have:

The main contents, once the shipping packaging is removed is:
- The case itself
- Pouch for the case
The case is real leather and covers the device entirely with a padded front which flips down. The padded front has an embedded turtle which is the company’s logo which is a nice touch. This attaches on the top by a sturdy catch which is similar to the body. The body of the case is much more solid and tough, showing that it should be incredibly sturdy to use. This has the company name cut into the back and it is deep, so if you don’t like brand names, it’s not easy to remove.
## Build Quality
The whole thing is in one piece, although the back does feel it is more supportive as it should be (don’t want to be cracking the glass back!).
It definitely feels like it can protect my device from the drops and bumps it will most likely get
## Fitting and Removing
It can be tricky to get the case on without feeling like you might break something. But you are rewarded with a very sturdy fit to the case and it doesn’t come off easily until you learn a technique.
## Port Accessibility
On the Nexus 4, there are the appropriate gaps cut out of the material for access to the volume, power, charger, speaker and camera which are all cut to comfortably allow access to these areas of the case.
## Good Points
The case adds a bit of width to the device, which for me actually allows me to know if I actually have my Nexus in my pocket or not.
The case also has great cut-outs for the important pieces which is great. For me they are just the right size while still protecting my device. What is especially good is that the charging cutout is crafted so that you have no troubles actually operating your device while being plugged in.
The quality of the case feels good, and worth paying £39 for if leather is your thing. The case fits suggly and feels as though it is protecting my device.
## Bad Points
The only bad point I came across was if you chose to use a 3rd-party wire to connect to the device. As my 3rd-party wire is fairly long I like to use it, but it is slightly larger so while the device is inside of the case the cut is slightly too small and the wire comes out sometimes:
