The BlackBerry Passport has been released in the market for quite sometime now, and yet, accessories are pretty scarce. As such, finding a pretty quality case would be pretty tough. Well, we were highlighted to the availability of the Ringke Fusion case by Rearth. The Ringke Fusion Case is available for just $22, but is this worth the money?
Coming in their signature ECO-packaging, whilst it is simple, it does give some sort of cheap feeling to it.
However, that said, we do however, appreciate the Eco-friendly packaging that comes with it and doing our part for reducing the pollution to the environment.
However, that said, the packaging seems to be mass produced, with it coming from a iPhone packaging. Was it a cost cutting move or what? We can’t be too sure.
Fresh out of the packaging, you can see that it really wants to be all about DIY or customization. We will talk a little more about this later on.
Flipping it around, we have this little sticker to tell us that there is a plastic film to protect the scratch resistant coating on both sides of the surface. That is great that the casing comes protected!
However, that said, initially I could not spot or find the film even after removing the sticker or placing some scotch tape on the casing.
This resulted in some sticky residue left behind.
However, after a while, the film started to surface.
So how does this match up on the BlackBerry Passport in Red? Let us let the picture speak for themselves.
In the gallery above, you can see that the Ringke Fusion Case for BlackBerry Passport is pretty thin, and on the positive note, pretty well constructed. With elevated hinges on the four corners, chances of scratch from the table or getting it overly soaked on table is reduced.
The back of the case, resembles one of a really good hardshell, whilst the sides are more accustomed to soft shell or TPU. This is a pretty good combination if you ask me and it does feel solid in one’s hand.
On the design hand, here we have the Crystal clear variant of the case, so the red colour is so obviously standing out. In fact, whatever is underneath can be seen clearly, which is why Ringke too is recommending us to customizing it by putting our own designs.
With that, they even have the instruction sheet and help tool to help us to cut out the design for the BlackBerry Passport inside the packaging.
All in all, with a official local price tag of SGD$22 including postage, it is indeed a rather good price for such a solid product, though there are some puzzling portions to it. For those who want to know, this case is also not made in China, but rather, in South Korea.
The Ringke Fusion Case comes in two variants: Crystal Clear (photo’s above) and Fusion Black (Check out the photo’s below).
