This case does what is required of it.
My criteria for phone covers is protection 1st and style 2nd. This cover has both.
I am pretty hashy with my phone, it's rare for me to go a day without dropping it. Tiles, pavements, bouncing off other objects on the way to the floor: all water off a ducks back for this two-piece case. The most abrasive drop it endured was when the phone wasn't in my pocket properly and I was jogging down my steeply slopping driveway. It had 3 or 4 bounces and in the end the metal outer came away. It was scratched, bent and kinked but straightened up well under my fingers. My phone would probably have been a write-off if it was case-less, or at the very least would have been heavily scratched, but between this case and my screen-protector it was preserved as-new.
Case is obviously not the trendiest but it looks smart and fits like a glove. Mine is grey, which comes up quite dark.
Obviously adds a bit of bulk, you cannot get a case that protects from real spills without that, but the weight gain is next to nothing.
Only down side is that the metal outer is quite slippery, especially if there is grease or moisture on your hands, ironically its slickness has caused a few drops! If you place it on a smooth surface and flick it, it travels like a curling stone!
