The case is an amazing case. When I first got my phone, I looked into a really protective case like life proof or the otter box defender. But, when looking at the cases, I noticed they were really bulky and made it hard to take off, which makes it hard to switch out the battery. Also, many reviews said that the life proof case disabled the fingerprint feature, which was a feature I planned on using a lot. So after talking to a best buy employee, he recommended this case to me, and so far, I have LOVED it!! This case offers amazing protection, and is also very slim and lightweight. The case was rated for military drop testing, and after dropping my phone a couple times I can say it is true. The corners are well protected, and the edge comes up so that the phone won't land directly on the screen. It is also very clear, which allows me to see the excellent gunmetal color of my phone. It isn't hard to take off either, and it doesn't cover up the fingerprint reader. I would also recommend getting a zagg screen protector, cause I have one, and with these two thins combined, my phone is completely protected without having the bulk, which I need as I am slipping my phone in and out of my pocket all day at work. I would definitely recommend this case!
