SPIGEN SGP HTC One X Crumena Leather Pouch Series Review

Gear Diary SGP 010

The HTC One X is a beast… and I mean that in only the best way. It is big, it is beautiful, and it has a fantastic screen. The body of the phone is polycarbonate which means the white color goes completely through it. That, in turn, means scratches won’t be quite so apparent. The screen is made from Corning Gorilla Glass. THAT means the screen won’t easily scratch. In other words, the HTC One X is a tough phone. Despite being so tough, however, you ARE going to want to protect the device. One great option is SGP’s Crumena Leather Pouch Series of cases. Let’s take a look and then give two away!!

From SGP:

SPIGEN SGP’s Crumena is a genuine leather pouch for the HTC One X. The Crumena protects the device against damages, dirt, and dust. The inner layer is made from a soft material to prevent scratches. On the back of the case is a small tab to make removing the device easier. When the tab is pulled, the HTC One X is raised from the pouch for convenient accessibility. One unique characteristic of Crumena is the embedded magnet that keeps the HTC One X firmly in the case when not in use.

As you can see, the pouch is nicely constructed. The leather has just a touch of texture to it. This adds just enough interest and grip to it. The retractable tab helps you remove the HTC One X with ease.

The little details matter and make this an especially nice pouch. For example, there are four perforations toward the bottom of the case. This let’s speaker sound through. Similarly, the leather tab has a small magnet embedded within it. This prevents it from flopping round and makes it easier to quickly pop the device out. That’s important because, as you will see in the next two images, the device fits into the pouch rather tightly. All in all, it is a simple but effective design.

As noted, it is a snug fit!

And when the HTC One X is inside it is well-protected although the very top does remain a bit exposed.

In all the SPIGEN SGP HTC One X Crumena Leather Pouch Series of cases is a great option for protecting the device. This is particularly true since the One X is already so large that adding on the bulk and weight of a permanent case might not be the best way to go. And with the cases costing under $30… why not get one… or two. After all, the Crumena Leather Pouch does come in Black, White and Brown. Details and ordering information can be found here on the product page.

MSRP: $29.99

What I Like: Nice quality leather; Good construction; Quick release pull tab; Magnet keeps the leather tab in place

What Needs Improvement: Very top of the phone remains exposed

    Soo nice, good pictures as well. Does the phone fall out if the case is turned upside-down?
    I´d really like to win a black one!

    The white one is awesome, too. Especially since it would contrast well with my HTC One X.

    Wow! This must be the best looking case for the One X! I like the classic brown best!
