The phone cover is exactly as pictured. I really like the cover, it protects the phone adequately. The only issue with this phone cover is that all pictures taken from the back-facing camera have a blue-ish tint to them. I have to remove the cover anytime I want to take a picture which doesnt affect me too much as I dont take too many pictures but I can see it being a big issue for someone who likes to take a lot of pictures. Also, note the blue section on the back is slightly raised compared to the black portion so the phone won't sit flat on it's back.
