So the guys over at MobileZap were nice enough to send me the Ultimate Sony Xperia Z Accessory Pack which has some nice accessories in it which I will cover in this post. I guess you could say it’s a review on the product. Try and not judge me too harshly as I’ve never really written a review.
- Desk Stand
- Car Holder
- FlexiShield Skin / Case
- Mini Portable Desk Stand
- Car Charger
- 5 x MFX Screen Protector
See, it isn’t at all a bad pack at all for just under $27! It’s quite a bargain. Now enough from me. On to the review.
The desk stand is quite good. You clip the stand into the base and voila! It has one of those “sticky” kind of pads on it, so you just place the phone on the stand and it stays there. You have the option of placing the stand in a landscape or portrait orientation to suit what you need, either gaming, SMS, e-mail e.t.c. you get the idea.
Now I haven’t personally used the car holder yet myself, but it seems sturdy and I can’t see there being any issues with it. It can rotate 360 degrees for any viewing angle, landscape or portrait. You have the option of mounting on the window and it also comes with an extra pad to mount it on the dash. It is currently mounted in my Wife’s car as she is doing some travelling and will use it for navigation.
FlexiShield Skin / Case
Now this case is very nice, it’s a piano-black finish, smooth, has rounded edges and just fits in your hand better. I previously had a Case Mate Barely There on my Xperia Z, but instantly swapped over to the case that is inside this pack. The only downside with this case is that it doesn’t have the dock connector cut out of it. However you can pick up a couple of cases from MobileZap which do have the dock connector cut-out. Not a big loss but would have been a nice addition.
Mini Portable Desk Stand
So what can I say about this little sucker. Well it does what it’s supposed to do, works and works well. Just stick it on the back of the phone (or on the FlexiShield skin) and away you go! Quite a nifty little piece of kit to have in your bag.
Car Charger and Screen Protectors
So the car charger is as most are, plug it in and connect the USB cable. I haven’t tried charging any other devices off of it as yet but I am sure it would work well. The screen protectors seem nice and clear but I haven’t applied one as of yet (I may remove the one that comes with the XZ and apply one) but they seem to be a decent quality and not cheap.
So an accessory pack that comes with all the necessities for under $27 you can’t really fault. I’m currently using the case, car mount, desk stand and mini desk stand so it’s well worth it for the price and would definitely recommend this pack to anyone that wants and all-round bang for buck kind of deal. You can also check out all the other great accessories for the Xperia Z that MobileZap have like headphones, batteries, speakers and also cases that have the dock-connector bit cut out.
