I have a similar one for my Android phone, but it opens like a book. I think I prefer this flip down better. I just throw things into my purse so I knew this is what I needed. It's well padded to protect the screen and if you drop it. Phone fits snug. Having had this for sometime with my other phone, I know it works for my lifestyle which is to use the phone while in the case. If you want to actually hold the phone, consider another option. Because of the fit, it will get annoying to take it in and out and eventually you're going to make it too loose. The only negatives ares I don't think it's leather (but given the price I can't really complain) and it had a horrible chemical smell that eventually went away after about 3 days of sitting out.
