Review: Case-Mate Zebrawood case for BlackBerry Z10

Now that thousands of us have our hands on the much anticipated BlackBerry Z10, it’s time to get in to the business of properly protecting and accessorizing them. Take a moment to check out the Zebrawood case from Case-Mate’s Crafted Wood Collection for a classy looking option that you’re sure to love.


The Zebrawood case is nothing if not sharp looking; I’ve been using it for a few days and everyone has commented on how sleek it looks on my Z10. The case itself has a silver plastic edge  that has a metallic look to it, and a back side made from natural wood materials. The contrast of metallic and wood makes the case and your phone a very modern looking device to be carrying around.



The case consists of two pieces, a thin back with a rubber-like material that adds a little bit of cushion should your phone slip out of your hands, and a top portion that covers the rest of the phone. On the top piece, there are slots cut out so you can have easy access to your camera, volume rockers, charging/HDMI ports, and the speaker on the bottom.


Overall, the Zebrawood case is a great looking carrying solution that adds a certain level of sophistication to your phone. I only had two small issues with the case; the volume rockers are a little hard to get to because of the thickness of the top piece of the case, and the metallic looking plastic is just that, plastic. It give the case a slightly cheap feel to it, which is ironic because the case costs $80.

You can purchase the Zebrawood case, and many other great looking cases, from Case-Mate’s website.
