Case round-up, best cases for the Sony Xperia 5 ii

Image
The Sony Xperia 5 ii (as in 'mark 2') was a top - though pricey - option from late 2020, as a compact phone with flagship specifications and plenty of 'enthusiast' features (3.5mm jack, 'Pro' camera apps, notification LED, shutter button, the list goes on...)

See their  complete range of Galaxy S20 FE cases and covers . But on with the individual cases, each link goes to the relevant product page, of course. Samsung Smart Clear View Cover, £35 Now, I now what you're thinking. You don't like bulky folio cases. Neither do I. But this is the best folio I've ever used. From thin and sculpted shell to neoprene hinge to the 'smart' transparent window, this Samsung design doesn't add too much bulk and does give access to basic phone information.
