I've previously bought the white version of this, sadly that phone was stolen.
This red version is actually more attractive and better, in my opinion.
This really does offer a good level of protection. There are sturdy rubber bumpers at the top and bottom of the phone, a textured rubber back with a cut-away so the Apple logo is visible. It's quick and easy to fit . The rubber buttons work well, with the charger, headphones and speaker readily accessible. It does make the phone much chunkier but that's a small price to pay for protection. The textured bumpers also make the camera and video much easier to use. Great value protection.
