Premium Sony Xperia Z1 cases on display at IFA 2013
While browsing through the spacious Sony hall at IFA 2013, we came across a section where a variety of pretty cases were on display. To be more specific, these were all Sony Xperia Z1 cases – cases of all kinds and colors. Naturally, we stopped by to take a look and snap some photos. 

All these cases were placed behind a glass window so we weren't able to touch and feel them. They all, however, looked very well made. Krussel's folio cases made of leather, in particular, were among the most stylish. The polycarbonate protective cases by Incipio, on the other hand, promised the best resistance against shock. But the one that we were most impressed by was the awesome-looking wooden Xperia Z1 case by the Japanese brand Hacoa.

Take a look at the photos below and let us know what kind of case you'r pick to protect your Sony Xperia Z1, assuming you had one. Or would you rather leave it bare and show off its shiny glass back plate?

It took them 6 months to release the XZ in the U.S. I\'m not waiting this time around and already pre-ordered the XZ1. Waiting, impatiently for better accessories to come out now.

I don't know why but to me that phone looks like a brick and very unappealing, same goes for the cases. Sony used to have some good designs when it partnered with Ericsson like the Arc S, they should go back to those designs.
