I bought this HTC Desire Pouch PO S520 for my testing device about 3 months ago. Since I carry my HTC desire a lot on my travels, it got lately bumped around quite a lot and experienced few scratches on the screen. Since I need that this device is presentable (testing apps for clients), I decided to purchase my HTC phone a new cover case. There are tons of cases on the market, however I decided to go for a case which is genuine HTC. I ordered this HTC Desire Pouch PO S520 from Amazon for £8 with shipping included. The case arrived about 4 days later. The packaging needed to be removed with knife (I never know where are my scissors), I did not manage to open it just by hand. In the package is just the case itself, there is no screen protector - which is a bit shame because most other cases offer that as bonus. However the case is very nice, it comes in black color and the design is very professional. There is a HTC logo on the bottom of the front side of the case. On the back is a strip which allows to pull you your phone out very easily. The case is quite softy in the inside so it does not cause any unwanted damages to your screen.
I am very satisfied with this HTC case and would definitely recommend it. It looks very good and professional and gives your phone a very solid protection!
When I first got my HTC Desire I was reluctant to get a case for it. I didn't like the feel of have a surround case on it and thought that the pouch design would make it awkward to get to my phone. However after having the phone for six months, the screen acquired a large scratch. Let me tell you now, paying a few pounds for a decent pouch is better than paying £50 for a new screen!
However now that I have bought this one I'd highly reccomend it! Not only does it look professional with real, and soft leather on the outside. It protects the screen of the phone from scratches and has a soft interiopr to ensure that the screen is not damaged.
The pouch is not at all fiddly when trying to get the phone out. It was a small band along top that when pulled brings the phone out with it. The pouch is a snug fit and holds the phone tightly and securely, a reason to get the HTC branded one, rather than a genric pouch, as it is made specifically for the desire.
This pouch is a definately a must have, I wish I'd known that sooner!
When I got my HTC I was very nervous that the screen would scratch easily, which is the only reason I got this pouch as well.
As it is a genuine pouch from htc you know that it is quality. The leather is superb, The inside material, is soft, which seems to give the screen a nice wee clean when the phone is coming out.
The pouch also as a pull strap on the back of it which makes removing the phone easy and risk free. I always use this pouch as a precaution, as I would be lost without my phone if it were to be broken.
The pouch is stylish, and business like. So no the type of user you are then why not make a small investment in the pouch to give you peace of mind and protection.
I have never shut up about this pouch since purchasing it. I feel it was well worth the money!
I already have, and will continue to recommend this pouch to my friends and family.
Thanks for reading! I hope this has been of interest to you and has helps assist you in your decision.
I've been using this case for a few months and wouldn't be without it.
The leather is good quality - rigid enough to be protective and not at all grainy in texture. After a few months use mine is still pristine.
It fits perfectly, as you'd expect for an official HTC accessory. It has a small tab on the back which is used to easily extract the phone from the case. (The tab is connected to a ribbon which runs underneath the phone inside the case.) I wasn't sure this was a good idea (the case for my previous phone didn't need one) but with the size of the phone and the snugness of the fit I'm now convinced - it makes the phone very easy to get out of the case in a hurry, and it would probably be quite fiddly without. The tab sits in a little recess on the back of the case so it doesn't protrude.
The inside of the case is lined in a grey fabric with a brushed texture. In my experience it doesn't do much to clean the screen as you put it in and out of the case, but it does provide a nice protective cocoon for the phone.
I'd recommend this case to anyone with an HTC Desire. There are cheaper alternatives available, but this looks like it will last the lifetime of the phone.
This is the offical carry pouch from HTC, and as such you can rest assured that the quality and fit will be way better than the generics.
I am really impressed with mine. It feels and looks extremely well made and the interior is made of some kind of synthetic soft lining which protects the screen, but also seems to clean it on removal (though I would still recommend a screen protector to be safe. The exterior is leather and is a nice solid black colour. Not particularly exciting, but I feel it bridges the gap nicely between the executive, business world and the everyday user.
There is also a small "pull strap" which allows removal of the phone without having to turn it upside down or try to "pincer" it out with your fingertips leading to potential dropping! Instead, simply pull the small tab and the phone pops out enough so that you can remove it with a secure grip.
Great value for money compared to some other cases.
