The case is made in the best traditions of Sony! Discreet black color, premium materials and strict sharp lines. A design feature is a separate shutter button. That further turns this model into a full-fledged camera.
The camera module also indicates that you are holding a device with a large matrix. In general, everything in the case design hints at the status of a camera phone.
The manufacturer paid special attention to the safety of the device. I was pleased with the presence of moisture protection of the case according to the IP68 standard and the most durable glass Gorilla Glass Victus today. Do you think moisture protection is still relevant for smartphones? Or is the minimum case thickness more important? Share your opinion in the comments, I’m very interested in what will win: practicality or style.
