Smartphone Case Review: Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case Review
      #46446 - 05/13/14 08:25 PM

Noreve is now offering several leather cases in different styles for the HTC One M8, and their leather case in Tradition 21571TB model is a portfolio style case that can not only protect the smartphone but also lets you carry some essentials like credit cards and cash. As with all Noreve leather cases for smartphones, the Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case comes in 14 different texture finishes and many color options in each collection.


The Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case is a very protective case that covers the entire phone. The case uses lush, handcrafted leather that feels soft in the hand. The case has soft padding under the exterior leather that helps absorb shock or bumps to both the front display and the large back of the smartphone. The casing that houses the phone has a stiff thermoplastic polymer inner structure that provides protection against any scratches, bumps, nicks and even some drop shock. The Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case opens like a book and has a snap closure tab that keeps the case shut securely. A small metal Noreve logo sits in the right corner on the front of the case.

As with many Noreve cases we've seen, the Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case looks and feels classy. The material is high quality and the stitching is immaculate. In addition to the excellent craftsmanship, the biggest attraction for the Noreve case is the huge number of options in both texture and color you can customize your case with. The finishing textures include 14 different surfaces, some in traditional styles and some have very modern touches. Each finish comes in different colors, and the popular collections offers over a dozen colors to choose from. Just remember, some fabric options take longer than others to make.


The Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case is a phone case and a wallet. The front cover of the leather case offers a long side pocket for cash and three credit card/business case sized slots in addition. The case is very functional with carefully made cutouts including side cutouts for the volume rocker, and the memory card and sim card slots; and even when the front cover is closed, you can still use these buttons and have access to the slots. The case has a long cutout on the top to give you easy access to the IR window/power button. The bottom of the case has a cutout that leaves out the charging port and 3.5mm audio port. The case has perfectly placed cutouts on the rear to expose cameras and the flash as well as the mic. The front cover on the Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case also has cutout for the earpiece behind a meshed grill, so that you can take a phone call without opening the front cover.

The Tradition 21571TB model of the Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case also comes with a short but sturdy stand that can prop up your smartphone in landscape mode for media watching and video chatting. The built-in stand is wide and when it's not in use, you can use the snap to fasten the stand to the back of the case.


Noreve leather cases always stand out with its good quality material and excellent craftsmanship, and the Noreve HTC One M8 Leather Case is not exception. The leather case is protective, classy looking and it comes in hundreds of possible combinations in texture and color. We love the freedom of customizing your own case in just the right surface and the right color. For the strong protection, the case does add some bulk to the slim phone, and 3.4 ounces of weight. The case also doesn't curve on the back to contour the curved back of the phone.
