This case protects all sides well. Being raised on the top, it also protects the glass when you lay the phone face down on a flat surface. The cutouts are perfectly placed for the camera, speaker, flash, earphone and charger holes.
The on/off button groove requires a little more force than the up/down toggle bar. I like that, because I carry my phone in the pants pocket and it does not accidently turn my phone off. And it ony goes off when I turn it off.
Another great feature is that the cover is of two pieces. First, you separate the two parts. Then you install the inner cover on the phone. Then you snap the outer four-prong cover. Done! No fighting like other cases. To remove it, you just push up-and-out from top of the case, and both pieces comes off together. It will not come off on its own, even if dropped.
The feel of the case is perfect for me. It is just tactile enough that I have a nice grip, but is not overly tactile and therefore pulls right out of my pocket without binding.
And if you have any questions, the customer service folks are anxious to help. They are really good!
This is a wonderful case. I heartily recommend it.
Pros: High quality, Durable, excelllent fit, easy to remove, easy to install
