From September to May I used the black version of this and was delighted with it. Then my partner got an iPhone and, on my recommendation, the same case. It became clear very quickly that unless we were going to keep grabbing the wrong phone, one of us needed to change. Searching Amazon I was delighted to find the purple version - and for a great price. I love the colour and the feel of it. It looks, at least on the outside, like real leather and appears much more expensive than it was. The phone feels protected but can be opened really quickly and easily. All the controls are accessible and the camera works fine unless you are using the flash when the case seems to make pictures a bit foggy.
Unfortunately, yesterday morning after one month of use, one of the bottom plastic clips that holds the phone in place just fell off. I was not aware of doing anything that would have broken it. The same thing had already happened to my partner's black one although he did think he had probably knocked his.
Anyway, I liked it so much, I have ordered another one and am keeping my fingers crossed that I was just unlucky. With that reservation, I would recommend this item.
