I’m very impressed with the initial quality which exceeds the slide cover wallets I’ve been using. The magnetic cover is a huge improvement over the slide cover because after a few weeks the slide covers wear out and begin falling open, at which time, starts the game of putting tape on them to create some friction and to make the slide fit tighter. The side buttons are much more responsive as well since they are slightly raised vs flush. No more struggling to push the buttons with my thumbnail. (There’s nothing more embarrassing then accidentally playing an audio during a meeting and not being able to shut it off or even turn down the volume cuz you can’t push the buttons!) Also, all ports and buttons line up perfectly. The leather texture on the magnetic cover is softer, easier and safer to hold the phone vs the slides smooth plastic cover. Vena’s magnetic wallet comes in one piece and is easy to install vs the 3 piece slide cover wallet which always ends up breaking from installing or uninstalling when cleaning the phone. The credit card slot holds 3 cards very nicely and securely vs 2 on my prior wallet case. Thankfully there is not an opening on the backside either where my cards would often stick to the underside of the slide cover when opened, which caused a struggle to retrieve them. There is actually a slot on Vena’s wallet to push the credit cards forwards instead of the frequent aggravation of not being able to gracefully pull them out if you have nails. Suprisingly, the case is actually a bit thinner then my previous wallet case. However, since my phone itself is heavy, I can’t say if one case feels heavier then the other. The NFC works with both my prior wallets and this one, BUT, only this one does the wireless charger work with. The magnetic cover needs to be open though. Also, the magnetic cover doubles as a kick stand to hold the phone up on its side or even on end. It also seems plenty strong to hold the phone on my new magnetic phone holders in my vehicles. I would have never used one with the slide cover cuz it would have popped the cover off every time. (Plus the slide is not magnetic but magnetic stickers are available to be applied.) Instead, I struggled with a retractable clip for the slide wallet. The slide cover itself just has no other functions. The only disadvantage I’ve discovered is I am a pop socket user and cannot find a feasible way to use one. Overall, I do have to say my slide cover wallets protected my phone through multiple drops, though it may have left me picking up my credit cards and all three pieces of the cover itself, it never failed me. I feel this one is built to withstand my abuse just as well. These are the questions I could not find most the answers to after reading an hour of reviews.
