Chose this after reading a number of different case reviews. It is a snug fit and does not significantly increase the size of the already large handset. It is real leather and well constructed and stitched. The integration of pull up ribbon and closure is smart and works well. It might have benefitted from a magnetic closure rather than the slightly tacky velcro, but thats personal taste. Keeps my superb handset well guarded. The loss of the fifth star is for the depth, just flush with the top of the phone, I would have been happier with something slightly deeper. Overall, given what folks are saying about the official HTC cases, this seems like a winner. Will edit with any future observations on wear and tear, quality etc.
