Australian based case maker, Toffee, offers interestingly designed cases and bags for mobile gadget lovers. The Toffee Flip Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s offers great protection for the smartphone while provides you with the ability to carry five credit cards and some cash with your phone. The Toffee Flip Wallet case is made with genuine leather and comes in black or brown leather option. We look at their iPhone 5s version of the case, and Toffee also offers this case for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The Toffee Flip Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s has a versatile design. The wallet style case has a plastic iPhone holder that fits the phone perfectly and protects it from scratches, bumps and even drops thanks to the hard shell and the reinforced front cover. The case has check shirt lining that feels soft and adds some visual interest to the solid colored case. The black leather case has a more purple blue check shirt lining and navy blue elastic closure strap, while the brown leather case has a more teal blue check shirt lining and red elastic strap.
The Toffee Flip Wallet Case's design makes it easy to use with the iPhone 5s. The phone holder has a long cutout on the side to give you access to the silence slider and volume buttons. It exposes most of the top and bottom of the phone to give you easy access to the power button, mic, speaker and the Lightning port. The case has a generous cutout for the rear camera and flash, giving both plenty of room to operate even when the closure strap is in use.
Unlike most wallet style cases that only offer a couple of card slots, the Toffee Flip Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s offers five and a side pocket for bills. To keep your cards and money safe in transit, the case has a built-in elastic closure strap that can keep the front cover shut securely and keep the items you store in it from falling out accidently. We tested with all card slots filled and some bills stuffed in the side pocket, and we had no trouble closing the case and keeping it shut with the strap.
With some wallet cases, it's hard to use the phone to make a call as the wallet cover often gets in the way. The Toffee Flip Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s solves this problem by putting magnets that hold the front cover to the back of the case, so that when you use the phone to make calls, the cover stays back and doesn't flap around.
The Toffee Flip Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s gives you plenty of room for five cards and bills in addition to your iPhone, and it doesn't add too much bulk and adds only 2.4 ounces of weight. The case is perfectly cut to fit the phone and the interior check shirt lining makes the leather case look interesting. The Toffee case has strong stitching and the leather construction should withstand lots of wear and tear. The Toffee Flip Wallet Case for iPhone 5/5s doesn't come with any screen protector but it should work with any of your own.
