Screen protector (Front and Back)
Screen card to smooth out bubbles
Wipe down the screen and following the instructions on the tabbed labels for the screen protector, it was easy. The screen protector fit perfectly. This was a nice surprise since I didn't expect that.
The case just snaps right onto the Playstation Vita. The Start/Select buttons are a little harder to access but it doesn't interfere with function. This also protects the entire unit which helps for trade-ins or resale purposes. It is not necessarily impact resistant but it will prevent bumps and scratches to your system.
Highly recommend. This is a great value that gives overall protect against minor bumps and scratches. Every system needs this item.
Took me a few minutes to find a way to un snap it from my Vita.
The Vita will not fit in the heavy duty vault case with this attached.
There are two issues that holds this back from perfection. One is a lack of any padding on the interior; even just small, thin foam pads could have helped. At it is, it's just plastic, and will provide minimal protection from falls and drops, so be aware. Also, I feel there was a missed opportunity to put more substantial grip material on the back. It essentially just has the same type of indents that the Vita itself does, rather than additional raised, controller-like grips to help you hold it. Even just some rubber-like material to provide friction and traction would have been nice, but instead you get the same brushed aluminum, which doesn't provide much grip at all (and if you're fingers get sweaty it will be worse).
All in all, if you're looking for a stylish, tight-fitting housing to protect the finish on your system and provide a bit of extra bulk to hold, this hits all the marks. If you want a more controller-like grip or something to provide some real shock protection if you're worried about dropping the system, you might want to look elsewhere.
BUT!!.... I do have one problem, the power and volume buttons are really hard to get too. The case makes the buttons really deep and I am glad I'm a girl with long nails because I have to use my nails to get to the bottons. I don't know how people with bigger fingers and no lengthy nails could reach the buttons. It's kind of the same with the start and select buttons to. I use my nails. It's unfortunate because I do love the case. I guess you just have to get over it.
