Average hard gel case that fits good but could be designed better
This is an ok case. It’s hard gel like properties will offer some protection to corners if dropped but overall that’s about it, other than protecting the back from scratches. There is no physical protection against bending or twisting as you get with a hard shell case.
The fit is good. It’s snug to get on or off and fits the corners nicely. All buttons and cut outs for charger and auxiliary headset connections are in the right place and don’t interfere with using the ports. The convenience key button is stiffer than the volume and power but still useable and in the right place.
One thing that I would really like to see is the back material made thicker. As it is right now the material isn’t thick enough to keep the camera lens in a recess. The lens still protrudes beyond the case which leaves it exposed to damage when laying the phone down on its back. Why case manufacturers don’t take this into account and add 1mm or 2mm to the back side material is something I don’t understand.
For the money it’s an ok case but I have ordered something that more substantial so this will serve as a temporary solution.
