Featured Review: Krussel FrostCover for the Sony Xperia Z2

Krussel is a name that might not strike a chord with all of our US readers, but the Swedish firm should be better known over in Europe. Krussel has been making quality mobile cases for smartphones and tablets for a long time now, and they’re a part of Sony’s “Made for Xperia” program, which pretty much ensures that any Xperia case from Krussel is of good quality and that it fits perfectly. Here, I’m taking a look at what I think to be one of those “cases for people that don’t like cases”, the Krussel FrostCover for the Xperia Z2.

The version pictured both above and in the gallery below is the transparent black version, and I feel that it compliments my white Xperia Z2 pretty nicely. Right away, it’s noticeable that there really isn’t much to the case, this is a simple, snap-on affair that won’t save your Z2 from any time of high drop. However, that’s sort of the point with this, it’s got a nice pebbly texture on the back of it to give a little more grip than the smooth glass back of the Z2, and it’s pretty nice to look at as well. This is a case for someone that only needs light protection, but even still I would recommend getting a screen protector to go with this as there isn’t much of a lip raising the Z2 off of a tablet when placed face down.

Everything is neatly cut out, like the camera button, the microUSB flap and of course the camera itself. Sadly, the microSD card slot is covered here, but that’s not much of a dealbreaker and as a nice bonus, the magnetic charging connector is fully exposed here. I’m not so sure I like the crude cutout on the back to allow the “Xperia” branding to shine through, but if that sort of thing is important to you, then Krussel’s FrostCover will please you.

Overall, this is a quality feeling case that might be a little on the thin side, designed for those with only light-protection in mind. Don’t like cases, but want to keep that glass back scratch free? Then this is a great option for you to consider, it’s available from Mobile-Fun here.
