S5 – Leather case review and is it really pocketable?
So here’s basically what came out of the box..the s5 unit with a standard battery, the battery charger, a good quality leather case.
I immediately appreciated the compact size of the power adapter..a blessing to road warriors who absolutely hate lugging around heavy power bricks!
I was also impressed with the Viliv leather case (check out picture I took –>). It fitted the S5 securely and snugly; the black leather and red trimmings work very well and it didn’t act much bulk to the S5.
The red suede interior also housed a stylus – the tiny, telescopic ones you get with your PDAs which I don’t find very useful.
The casing also folds backwards into a stand for the S5 – thoughtful and necessary design. This is particular useful when you’re using this in a laptop mode with a USB or Bluetooth keyboard that doesn’t provide you with a stand to prop up the S5.
So most of you are wondering… is the S5 actually pocktable with the the Viliv leather casing on?
Well, I’m glad to report that the answer is a resounding yeahhhhh…:)
The Viliv S5 fits very snugly into a normal jacket pocket. It doesn’t stick out at all (I had to pull this out to show you that the S5 is really in the pocket!).
That’s one of my main requirements when I was looking at the S5..that it has to be truly pocketable, similar to the OQO 01+ and OQO 02 which I used to own. Mission accomplished!
