The case appears really cheap and thin but when it is on the phone it's more secure and is heavier due to the weight of the phone. It locks together and stays on very well. I get a lot of compliments on the cover. The only down side is the opening on the top where the headphones connect. My headphones connect just fine but my car only has an aux input cable to play on my car stereo. The aux cord does not fit in the phone anymore with this cover on. I would have to remove the case to get my aux cord on it.
