I got this because it was the same carbon fiber material I have on my IPad case. It is a low profile case which I prefer but I am not hard on my phones. It looks great but I am not sure what will happen with this type of case if it takes a dive and lands on a corner but that is generic to this type of case. The volume buttons aren't as accessible as I would like so I gave it 4 stars. Overall, a good case at a great price.
