Designer Sony Xperia Z3 cases and covers appear at IFA, we take a look
The Sony Xperia Z3 is a gorgeous smartphone. It is a fusion of glass and metal that feels great to the touch and easily catches one's eye. It is also, fragile, however. Glass isn't that hard to break, as you surely know. The solution? Put the Z3 in a case!

Speaking of cases, dozens of cases and covers are here on display at IFA 2014 - cases by popular desingers and brand names, including Barbour, Tom Tailor, Roxy, Proporta, Krusell, Zenus, Rock, Muvit, and Galeli. Desins vary from stylish and fashionable to rugged and practical. Also, note that some of the cases come with rectangular or circular openings to allow interaction with the device even when the cover is closed.

But enough talk. Here's our quick look at the official Sony Xperia Z3 cases that are here at IFA 2014.

Millions of people who've bought them for their Samsung and LG phones will say otherwise. You =/= the rest of the world.

So the Z3 can create a round window (14) and a squared window (16). It's like a Samsung and LG mash-up!

Square and circle are in a bit different locations (?) (circle is only a tiny bit higher than square) So it will detect the location, size and shape of that hole too? o.e If that's true, very nice. :-D

For me no cases from other brands. Sony gives the vest quality in their cases. You pay more but you get something in return. The krussel cases i got usually where almost destroyed in 6 months
