Today we are going to review yet another offering from Capdase. Capdase is one of the best known cases and accessories company in world, with a support of enormous number of products, from tablets to handled gaming consoles, from basic scratch guards to power banks Capdase has got you covered, no matter what. The product in our basket today Capdase Xpose + Luxe XL. It’s a complete protection package for the Samsung Galaxy Note. Capdase has made sure that your device is well protected, presented and enjoyed equally as well with this neat package. It’s really a very well thought out package, covering every nook and corner of your device. Without a much further ado, let’s put this package through our regular drills. We will cover the contents of the package, design, quality, performance and finally the verdict.
Contents of the package:
- Soft Jacket
- Id Pocket
- Foldable Display Stand
- Scratch Guard
These points shall be discussed in detail as we proceed further with our review.
The first thing you will notice about the id pocket is the bright orange interior and a small section for caller id display, with a metal rim and the Capdase logo printed in black. The interior of the id pocket case is made from a soft sponge which will make sure that the screen of your phone get cleaned every time you pull out or put in your phone. Turn to the back side and you will notice a small metal ring at the top for the lanyard attachment and a speaker hole at the bottom. Serrated texture and neat and clean stitching around the periphery of the case gives it a firm grip.
The soft jacket is a classic Capdase, matte finish at the back and glossy on the side, with sections for the lock volume keys. You will find the necessary cuttings like that of the camera, flash, stylus, and speaker and for microusb port. The usual red stripe Capdase is also present at the bottom with the Capdase logo printed above it.
What struck me most is how easily the phone slid into the soft jacket, but make no mistake, it doesn’t slide out easily thanks to the border that goes slightly over the edge of the phone holding it tight. The only problem I had was at the beginning of the id pocket case, with soft jacket already on my note, I had to apply a bit of a force to take out the phone from its case, but once the material got settled with the shape and size, it’s now easily comes out, but at the same time it won’t drop the phone even if you inverted the case, it’s like a perfect balance.
Capdase has its own reputation for the quality and craftsmanship and the same is clearly visible in the package overall. The id pocket feels sturdy and well-built, you can clearly tell that it can take some beating while giving a nice professional look.
Soft Jacket on the other hand uses a highly flexible plastic that which gives a premium feel, even when you just hold the case in your hand. The overall result is a very modern, stylish and a simple case that can help extend the life your device to many more years.
Scratch guard provided is also of very high quality, amazingly resistive against keys and coins, though I did had to adjust my screen brightness in the direct sunlight after its application, but that’s the case again with most of the scratch guards out in the market.
Performance wise I don’t have much of a complaints besides the two. The caller id window is in the center of the case, while with the new updates, the caller id now shown on the top of the mobile screen and not the center rending the caller id window is completely useless. The other one is that of the display stand, I fear the constant folding and unfolding of the display stand might take a toll on its joints and they might snap one day.
I must say I am particularly impressed with the overall package. It’s a complete protection set with an added display stand for a truly no hands reading or when watching a movie. I am giving it a 4 out of 5, for the caller id windows problem and the sheer amount of bulk it adds to the already big sized phone. But yet still I would recommend this product to anyone looking out for total protection package and I am sure they will love it. You can grab one for your Samsung Galaxy Note N7000 from online stores such as Flipkart, Infibeam, Snapdeal, Amazon, and Amazon India.
