Today I am reviewing the Celicious HTC One M9 Walley Style Case.

Product Features:(Taken From Amazon Product Listing)

  • Designed with precision specifically to fit the HTC One M9
  • Robust and versatile featuring an internal polycarbonate cradle for a secure hold
  • Strategic cut-outs for ports and functions of the HTC One M9
  • Smooth synthetic leather and heavy duty stitching ensures durability and offers maximum protection
  • Executive look and feel, suitable for the professional, casual and social lifestyles

Design:

This case by Celicious is a fold over wallet style case. It’s finished with synthetic leather with a scale finish effect that makes it feel nice in hand. There is a presence of stitching on this case which means glue has been kept to a minimum, making for a sturdier finish that really does show. In the bottom, right-hand corner of the front door panel of the case is the Celicious branding. Around the back are two cutouts, a large one for the camera and flash and a small one for the microphone.

On the inside of the case, there is more than just a shell for the phone to sit in, there is also a section on the left-hand side for storing credits cards. paper money and ID. I myself wouldn’t use this section for two reasons, which are:

  • If you lose your phone, you also lose your cards, cash and ID
  • The surface of a credit card could cause damage to your phone in the form of scratches.

I did, however, test this area out and if you want it to hold cards, cash or ID, you will be happy with the space provided. There’s even a plastic window so you don’t have to pull out your ID all the time.

The shell that the phone sits in, is itself made of a strong feeling plastic, that in my opinion feels a lot stronger than the plastics used by other case makers. It has perfect gap placement for buttons, ports and the infrared blaster at the top of the M9.

One of the main features of this case is that it can be folded to create a horizontal stand for the phone, allowing for easier viewing of videos or movies.

In use:

This case has so far done a great job of protecting my beautiful M9 from accidents and today, in particular, it was a lifesaver as my phone slid out of my pocket onto a concrete floor. As I normally do when I drop a phone, I panicked and picked it up in a hurry but to my delight, the phone remained unscathed and free from damage thanks to this case. Oh and the case remained unscathed to. I also like how it feels in use. I’m usually not a fan of this style of case as I usually find the front flap door getting in my way, especially during landscape use, but this case hasn’t given me that issue at all.I find the flap just sits there not bothering me at all when in use in landscape.

When folded to make a horizontal stand for movies and videos, the case remains up and sturdy at all times and last night I managed to watch a movie on my phone without once having to adjust the case.

Overall:

A fantastic case for the fantastic HTC One M9. It looks good and feels good. For some people, the wallet feature will be an added bonus to an already excellent case.

Please Note: I received this at a discounted price in return for an honest and unbiased review.
