Wezel Wallet Review | A Wallet and a Phone Stand all in one!
Sometimes a wallet just catches your eye for some particular reason. In the case of the Wezel Wallet its no surprise why. This unique Wallet is cleverly designed to easily transform into a mobile or smart phone stand whenever you want, wherever you want. Its innovations like these that always keep motivating me to review more and more wallets. So let’s take a look at how good and useful this wallet is in practice and does this wallets main feature, its stand, actually work?
A Wallet with a Big difference
On the surface the Wezel Wallet looks like your typical bog standard wallet. The wallet hosts 2 card slots that can store up to 8 cards and 1 quick access slot on the front for your most used cards. Wezel say the wallet can also hold up to 10 bills, or notes, but I found this to be an over exaggeration at best. Just like many minimalist wallets, like the Wezel, it doesn’t have a dedicated note slot. Because of this you’ll typically need to fold your notes up to a smaller size before you store them.
The wallets are made from a thick top grain leather which smells and feels amazing. The build quality is superior compared to many wallets i’ve reviewed in the past which, for its price, is very impressive. The Wezel comes in 4 distinct yet very attractive colours including saddle (red), black, buckskin (light brown) and coffee (dark brown). Overall i can’t complain about the look and feel of the wallet.
Obviously we have to talk about the Wezel’s definitive feature, the smartphone stand. But before we do, let’s talk about the general functionality of the wallet. As mentioned above the wallet can hold a variety of cards and notes. The issue I found with the wallet, when using it in daily life, is cards get trapped easily and it’s generally not very user friendly. At best the wallet performs satisfactory and you should keep that in mind when considering the Wezel Wallet.
Now onto the moment we’ve all been waiting for. How the wallet functions as a phone stand. The setup is really rather simple. The wallet lies face down protruding the spine of the wallet face up. This is what the phone will prop itself up on. From here the phone uses the loose leather of the quick access slot for support in keeping it upright.
Watch the video below for more information on how it works. In terms of its practicality it works exactly as expected. Its stable and won’t fall over, while easy to erect. The only issue i found with it was I simply wouldn’t use it. But if you find yourself watching a lot of YouTube, or Netflix on your mobile device then it might be right for you.
A simple wallet with a hidden feature never before seen in a wallet. Does it function as intended? Yes. But is the wallet good enough to constitute a fairly unique and potentially unused feature? Thats entirely down to personal opinion. If a phone stand is something you want then this would make a great, affordable wallet for you.
