Overall if you are looking for a functional case that is low cost this is a decent choice.
Cons: #1 The sleep/wake button and volume buttons are sealed in on this case, and since the plastic is hard, its difficult to press the buttons through the case. I am a strong guy and I have to press pretty hard to get a response from the phone. The case is so thick that there is no feedback from clicking the buttons, you have to look at the screen to see if you are adjusting the volume and or turning the phone on or off. The outer plastic case has no imprints on them so you cannot feel them to adjust the volume while you are on the phone, you must look... then press.
#2 This case has a strong semi flexible plastic feel to it. You can feel and see very minor imperfections as the case was molded and has some grooves and edges from the manufacturing process. The clear case, has the clarity similar to a clear water bottle.
Pros: Great protection from thick plastic, no interference from the flash taking pictures, and overall the case looks very nice on the white iPhone.
The bottom line, would I buy this case again or recommend it to a friend, well "NO" I would not, as the price has increased to $15.00, I purchased it for $10 a few days ago and for the problems pressing the buttons its out of the running. Overall Amazon has done a great job describing the phone as basic because this phone cover is basic and nothing else.
I warmed the case a little by letting it sit in the sun to soften before I put it on.
