Coming to the particular case we're reviewing, Sena's MagnetFlipper is a stitched leather case with a great flip-style. The leather, as mentioned, is of high grade. The flip mechanism works with the help of magnets. These are low power magnets and it has been confirmed that they cause no harm at all. However, using the phone inside the case might interfere with the magnetic compass.
It is an easy-to-install case. Just insert the phone from top and once it's firmly in place, with all cut-outs lined up, lock it on top. The chances of the phone slipping out are slim, as it is snuggly held by the case. The openings for buttons are nicely cut out. In fact, everything from speakers to the proximity sensors near the earpiece is easily accessible. The phone can be used normally just by flipping over the screen cover.
The case comes with decent holster option as well. Just screw the holder to the case as mentioned in instructions and put the clip over it. You can then swivel the clip easily and set it at 6 different angles. Another small feature I like is a little pocket that allows you to fit in a business card and other stuff.
You can buy it online directly from Sena for $52, along with many other nice ones. This premium price is well justified by the quality and the amount of engineering put into the case. In my words, it is a treat for leather lovers and maybe even those who who are not much fond of it!
