Provides unbelievable protection, is not bulky and is beautiful. I had not had my new phone but a month with the case on when I dropped it from 5+ feet from a tow truck with it landing first on the steel step and then rapidly spinning, hitting the ground. When I picked up the phone, it still worked, no screen damage and looking closely, could not see any scrapes, scratches or blemishes on the case. It looked brand new. This is my second Otterbox as I had one on my previous phone. There is nothing out there that combines protection, slim design and beauty all in one package.
