Was sketical at first but I like it a lot.
October 2, 2016
Ordered the case last week and it came 2 days later thanks to Prime.
It came packed in a bubble envelope and the case was inside a plastic.
General impression: for the BLACK/CLEAR Case
It has a very nice clean look. It's slim so it doesn't make the phone overly bulky like the Otterboxes.
All four sides have a glossy black color. and has a soft feel to the touch. The clear back feels harder than the sides of the phone case. I like the difference in feel it gives.
Cutouts for speaker/microphone the switch button and the cameras are all perfectly aligned.
The screen on/off and volume buttons also line up perfectly.
The phone case has a small tiny lip all around clear backing. If you lay it flat, the back clear cover won't touch the surface so you won't have to worry about it getting scratched.
With the phone in the case, the phone sits slightly flush with the case so there is space between the top of the screen and the surface, if you pay it flat. The space is big enough that you can pop on a tempered glass protector and still have left. (I have the JETech protector still installed and have no issues when I flip it screen down on my desk.
Overall I think this is a great case. I normally pop my bus pass behind the clear backing so that I can show the bus driver instead of shuffling through my wallet.
My reason to get the black sided case instead of the crystal clear case was because crystal clear gets discolored after some use. This includes other brands like Spigen/Caselogy/Ringke. Anyone that uses a crystal clear case hard case or hybrid will have encountered this in one shape or form. It's probably the nature of the materials and the reaction to UV or just the build up of oils and grime over time. I'm no rocket scientist, but black sides should not get discolored ;).
The only negative I would have would be that the clear backing is very finger print prone, but I'm not sure if there is a way to fix this. It's clear glossy plastic afterall.
I gave this product 5 stars because its a very nice case and the quality is on par with the other brands that are sold on amazon.
