Sena continues to deliver innovative, quality design and style with their new Croco line of cases. The Treo 700 series MagnetFlipper offers convenience and style along with a slim fit, and now has even more customization available options.

The design of this case is by far one of the best looking I've held. The Croco leather just looks cool. There's no question about it. I looked good walking down the street both dressed up for work, and wearing shorts and a t-shirt. The case just fit with anything I wore. One measure of my cases comes when I go to work. I'm a school teacher, and my students are always amused and involved with every review I write. When I got the Sena Croco case they reached a consensus; it's the most stylish case I've owned. I have to agree. The Croco look just can't be beat in my book. One great thing about the Sena flip cases that differs from most other leather cases is the magnet closure. It's just so simple and efficient. No need to snap the flap closed or fumble with it when you receive a call. A simple flick of the flap will detach the magnets.

Belt Clip

The belt clip on the MagnetFlipper is identical to that of the LeatherSkin I previously reviewed. Here is a quote from that review:

The belt clip is a high end clip common among the high end cases. It is very secure and my 700w never once came off. It requires the device be inserted or removed at a sideways 90 degree angle. So you have to turn the device sideways to remove it from the clip, preventing accidental removal.

The Treo 700 Series MagnetFlipper offers 26 different variations. There's cases with and without the belt clip, a multitude of colors to choose from, and of course the Croco and standard leather options. With all the different options available, you should have no trouble finding one that suits each individual.

Sena continues to offer high-quality cases at reasonable prices. The Treo 700 Tan Croco MagnetFlipper Case costs $59.99, far cheaper than most of the luxury leather cases. If that seems too expensive, you can always opt for the standard MagnetFlipper without a belt clip for $46.99. Either way you'll be getting style and protection for a very reasonable price.

Again, the issues of this case are similar to the LeatherSkin case previously reviewed. Here's the quote from that review:

So are there any problems with the Sena case? I only found a couple problems, and they are more of an annoyance than an actual issue. First, the borders of the case around the screen don't sit flush. They bow out a little on either side, as you can see in the picture below. The second part of the case that bothered me is a similar problem. The case bubbles up a little around the side volume buttons. Both of these problems are a result of the nice soft leather that the Sena case is made of. The soft leather has it's benefits and downfalls.

There is one issue unique to the MagnetFlipper with the belt clip. Although I loved the magnet closure, there were times that I'd look down and see the case hanging on my belt with the flap down. While not a huge issue, it did get annoying at times.

Sena Cases continue to offer stylish leather cases to protect our toys without breaking the bank. The various options available for the MagnetFlipper cases offer customization and options. As with everything, it isn't perfect. There are some minor issues, but they are more of an annoyance than a deal breaker. At $59.99, the Croco case offers ultimate style to encase your 700 series Treo.
