I wanted something to protect my iphone. This does a great job at that. It stays closed really good and protects it all around when I am not usiing it. I have to take it out to use it because it doesn't stay in too good when it is open. The phone slides out and the front cover kind of gets in the way. It needs a strap inside to hold the phone in when it is open. But for what I really wanted it to do it works great.
