I received my Surf case four days ago. The pictures on the website show a blue plastic layer surrounded by a black or perhaps dark gray outer layer. My outer layer is PURPLE and it looks terrible. Furthermore, after four days of use, having not suffered any impact as of yet, the outer layer of the case is fading and scratched. After four days this case appears looks worse than my old Otterbox did after more than a year. Overall, however, this case does fit my Note 3 better than the old case fit my Droid Razr. My 3 star deduction on quality is specifically because the silicone layer is not very durable on this particular case.
