I have several cases and this is the best one. The two piece cases crack and some of the leather ones are too bulky. And still other flex plastic and one piece hard plastic don't fit right. This one has grip, it is not too tight,(if you need to take it off), and it is super stylish with a circle in the back to show off your apple iphone decal. And the shiny part of the "s" in the back is the smaller section to the right. The larger left side is matte, which I like much better.
