The Incipio Carnaby Esquire Card Folio Case is made out of fabric and does not only suits my jeans, but it feels soft on the hand and slides so fast in my pocket. So, let me introduce the Incipio Carnaby Case, a wallet phone case with slots for the cards and a media stand. But Is the media stand sturdy enough to stand vertically? And how is the usability?
Out of the box, I was impressed with the touch of the fabric. The case feels like real jeans and the smooth fabric cover on the back adds that elegance when I’m wearing jeans and holding my phone. There are two slots for your cards, but there’s no cover for the cards so the cards might scratch the screen phone. The magnetic closure seals the phone perfectly and won’t open by itself unless you open it.
Features I love
The clip is solid, and the sides are nicely protected, so there is a small possibility to damage your phone as the sides are thick and strong. Another thing I love with this case is how simple life could be with this wallet case. It slides easily through my pocket because of the fabric design, and it fits up to 2 cards. One more, in case you accidentally spill your coffee on the case, it will take time to dry, but you can just brush it with a toothbrush.
Features I hate
There are a plus and minus with the case that’s made of fabric material. The great thing is fabric material tends to be softer than other material so it’s easy to slide in your pocket but be careful with water or liquid as it takes a long time to dry. The clip is strong, but the buttons on your phone will be exposed. It’s a good thing since you can press it easily without anything covering it but when you close it, the buttons may press by itself, and you might suddenly get a lot of screenshots when opening the case.
The slots are useful for the cards, but It’s hard to take out the cards on the upper slot, and there is no raised bezel to protect the screen. Another thing is the flaps on the magnetic closure doesn’t lay flat, so you need to fold the magnetic flap to the back.Unfortunately, when I fold the magnetic flap, the stand is a bit weak.
|The Good||The Bad|
Fabric design case is great to slip in your pocket. The minus part is that it’s easy to get wet and a long time to dry as it absorbs in the fabric, but it’s also easy to scrub it with a toothbrush. The clip is very sturdy, but it doesn’t protect from all parts, only the sides so there's no protection for the buttons and port.
However, you could access the buttons quickly, but when you close it, the buttons may press by itself, and you might suddenly get a lot of screenshots when opening the case. However, there's a small possibility to crack your screen as the case holder is extremely solid, but make sure to put on a screen protector.
