I got this case at the same time I got my fiancé the same type in a different color. We both love the cases. I was first drawn to it because I'm a big star trek fan. This case makes the phone look like a small PADD from that show. The black distracted slightly from that, but this was the closest in the grey color and design to that look that wanted to emulate. It was a very easy case to apply too. I've only had one minor drawback to it so far. When it's in the pocket of one of my cargo pants it gets condensation or sweat on the phone at the apple logo. That's that only part on the back that isn't covered by the case. It hasn't actually caused any problems to the phone yet. If I put the phone in a different pocket it isn't an issue. I'm still very glad I purchased this case, and it was a great deal at under $$$ as well.
