This was my favorite case for my 4S (I had a few), but the only downside was that if dust or dirt got caught in between the case and the metal band it could potentially scratch the band when sliding the case on and off. This didn't seem to take away much or any value from the phone when I traded it in for my 5S so that was nice. If you're a perfectionist the potential scratches may bother you, but if you're a realist you'll remember you pretty much keep your case on at all times anyway so it's not that big of a deal. This case would get 5 stars if it weren't for the scratching issue. Still a great case though. ***Note this seems to have been corrected for the 5 and 5S of the same case model.***
Also the slide-off-to-dock style of the case was great and really convenient if you hate dismantling your case every time you need to dock it.
