Had it for a few weeks then sold it on E-Bay

About a month or so ago, I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. I was trying to find a case that didn't break the bank, looked appealing, and was functional. This one seemed to fit the bill and had great reviews, so I ordered it. I went from an iPhone 4s with a case that had a hard/soft shell so getting the same type of case for my new phone seemed to be like the best thing for it. I loved my OtterBox Commuter and figured this kind of seemed like the same thing, only cheaper. When I finally received the case, I was really excited. I thought I got a lot of bang for my buck: hard/soft case, kickstand, plus a belt clip (though I wouldn't use that part). Unfortunately, as soon as I put the case on, I was disappointed. The soft part of the case was really loose and did not fit the phone well. Even after putting the hard shell on, the soft shell moved around and just felt inadequate. This case is also not low profile and just felt extremely bulky in my female hands (even though I don't have tiny hands).
Although I thought the idea of a kickstand would be cool, I never actually used it. When I use my phone, I'm usually sitting in my bed or on the couch and don't have a hard surface to use the kickstand. If you use your phone a lot at a desk or something, this might be a great thing for you. Unfortunately, it just didn't do anything for me. I also liked the idea of the added belt clip and that part I did actually like, although as I said before I didn't use it as I put my phone in my purse. The case would slide screen side down into the belt clip and it was well protected and snug.
Overall, I just didn't like this case. It is a great idea with the low price and many added features, but it was not executed well. For me, it was too bulky and had features that I did not personally utilize. I ordered the TUDIA Ultra Slim Melody Series TPU Protective Case for Samsung Galaxy S4 Active I9295 (Purple) and I enjoy that case much more. It is simple, protects my phone, is low profile, and easy to hold in the hand. Just what I needed.
If I were you, I would look elsewhere for a case.
