Fitted to an HTC Wildfire along with a protective screen film, it provides a very secure and protective means of preventing scratches and most drop-caused damage to this type of phone.
Feels very tough and not too soft or tacky/sticky (which silicon cases sometimes do). It is a slightly flexible, glossy, transparent plastic moulding with a slight tint. So phone features can be seen and operated through it. There are pre-cut apertures for all microphone/speakers, cable connections etc. But not for the On/Off switch, which can be operated through the case with some care. Or you could cut-away your own additional aperture for that one.
Since this particular phone has its switch somewhat flush or semi recessed already, there really isn't much need to cover it with an additional layer of plastic of this thickness. The moulding could have been better designed with a thinner section in this area, that would make the task easier.
The case is a tight, slightly stretched, fit to the phone body and may give some people some little difficulty in fitting or removing, if they are not very positive and firm while doing so. But this provides a secure attachment without requiring any other fastening. Perhaps the moulding could have been slightly thinner all over, as it appears extremely tough. But maybe the manufacturer has chosen that specification after drop-testing? If so, then perhaps it is necessary for correct protection against that situation.
The 'black' version gives this case more of a dark brown or very warm grey colour, rather than a black or cool grey tint. But that suits this particular brown tinted phone body well. Perhaps the clear version also matches the silver variant of this phone too?
The recessed prismatic moulded-in pattern on the back of the case, is actually on the inside face. So the exterior is smooth and easily cleaned. Hollowing out the case wall with these recesses does reduce the added weight factor and creates some textural and visual interest. It may also provide better drop protection as well, as it spaces the case off the flat back area.
But it does tend to rather obscure the sensitive precision detailing on the HTC phone body, which is a pity, since you have already paid to own that, after all!
