    Pouch w/ Belt Clip Review

    Hey all! I stumbled across what I feel is a pretty good deal and I thought I'd share ... I prefer cases with a belt clip; I am not a "phone in the pocket" person - just a matter of personal preference. I been going with the standard Verizon shell/holster combo since I got my Gnex and I've been extremely pleased with it. However, recently I been finding myself using the phone without the shell more and more as I have really grown to like the way the phone feels in my hand. So, I began a search for a pouch with a belt clip ... it turned out to be quite a search!!! Not too much out there that I thought looked good and several items, although listed to be compatible with the GNex, just looked WAY too small to work.


    Then I came across this one ... first off the price!! UNDER 9 bucks and FREE shipping!! How could I go wrong!!! So, I went for it. First some props to the seller! I ordered this on a Thursday morning and had it by Saturday!!! Awesome service IMO!!


    OK, enough babble and on to the review:

    First off is the quality of the pouch: Now, I am no seamster but the stitching on it seems to be done pretty well. I guess time will tell ... if it falls apart in 2 weeks I will retract my statement

    Second, the fit: Like a glove!! This thing is obviously made for the GNex and not some generic universal. The height is perfect as is the width. The depth is a bit tricky ... you can see in the pics that there is a pretty good sized space between the cover and the screen. I can only assume this is due the curved nature of the GNex and it's to be expected.

    Third, the functionality: The clip itself it VERY tight and holds well to a belt or straight onto your pants pocket or waist of your pants. It swivels so that you can wear it vertical or horizontal; which leads me to the magnetic flap.


    The magnetic flap latches closed pretty tight - when I first got it, I put the phone in the pouch, turned it upside down and shook it to see if wearing it horizontal would be a concern. After some pretty rigorous shaking, the flap stayed closed. Now, I would NOT recommend using this pouch on a run, bike ride or similar activities because after some "violent" shaking, the flap did pop open ...

    Getting the phone in/out is also pretty easy due to the open "slots" on either side of the top of the case. This allows for a tight grasp between the thumb and forefinger (or middle finger) to slide the phone out of the case.

Thinking if I decide to get some of the sweet looking thin cases I've seen you all flaunting around, it'd be nice not to have to get another pouch. Much to my happiness it did indeed fit. It was a bit snug sliding it in/out, but there is elastic on the sides of the pouch I am sure that the pouch can be "broken in" after a while. IMAG0026.jpg

    Good review! Question. I don't like wearing a phone "potrait" style, I prefer it sideways. How strong is that magnet any fear of it falling out?

    As yes, good question! Should have added that in my review!! Darn! Knew I'd forget something LOL

    The magnet is strong first thing I tested when I got it was to shake it upside down (over my bed of course) and it held up fine. Also, I wore it horizontal most of the day today & never had an issue.
