I wanted to keep five cards in the slots, but that proved too much. It could only hold four and still close. The magnetic clasp works well, but I believe it's also the reason all my credit card's magnetic strips no longer work. I'd advise against anyone who plans on putting debit/credit cards or other sensitive cards in it to purchase. I do love having the cut out for the camera, which my last cover lacked, and is the reason I purchased this unit. The card holding pockets also sliced open after a week, and my cards keep falling out.
