Looks good but a couple of frustrating issues, 15 May 2013
Looks wise, this is a very sleek case, replacing the plastic back case with this one that's integrated into the front cover.
However I personally buy cases to offer protection when putting the phone in pockets, coats, bags etc. With that in mind, the two main parts I'd like to protect are the screen and the camera.
Once fitted though I personally found a couple of frustrating issues :-
1.) The case offers no protection against the camera lens (I should've realised based on the fact that it just replaces the current rear casing.)
2.) It makes the volume buttons difficult to use as they are right next to the binding holding the front and rear together (You have to fold the front of the case completely over. (Pretty useless if you want to use the camera as it then blocks the lens. Taking pictures becomes a two handed job)
Only time will tell whether the binding will withstand the constant folding over of the case but I can't help feeling that maybe I should've gone for some kind of sock to place the phone in as that offers the same protection to the screen and additional protection to the camera lens.
Looks like that may be next on the purchase list.
