I have to tell you, this case is a mixed blessing. On one side it is extreme protection for the phone. While encased you can dock it to the holder either facing in or out; this is a great aspect and works well. On the other side the clip is a complete disappointment; in two areas. One: it has a "lip" that faces into the body and "pokes" into my side. It is so uncomfortable while sitting that I remove it anytime I choose to do so. A review stated below that it is a problem for him but won't be for "thinner" people. Well, I'm thin, trust me, it is still uncomfortable. Two: It breaks off entirely too easily when entering/exiting my vehicle. I have had zero problems sitting in a chair, recliner, couch, etc., but once I get in the SUV--*snap* and down the phone tumbles.
The protector is awesome. Yes, it collects lint. Whoopty-do, who cares! Unless you walk up to me and ask me for my phone and I hand it to you, you won't even notice the lint. I do when I get it out of the holder and utilize it, but the collection is minor. Not only that, it wipes off easily, but it is there for those who are OCD when it comes to lint.
The holder is great with the in-/out-facing design and if you drop your phone, no matter the material it is dropped to, it will be protected. I absolutely love the protection level it offers to the phone.
The clip is a disgrace to such a great product. With the ease it breaks I'm sort of disappointed with it. Since I sit most of the day at work, it's not a problem to remove it and dock it, or even at home for that matter, but when I go out of town or out with the family and I'm in and out of the vehicle with every stop, it's very frustrating having to reattach the clip with its 'easy release' design. Not only that, I can only take the clip bearing into my side for so long before I just attach it to a cargo pocket, purse strap, etc., just so it doesn't poke me anymore.
The clip is somehow almost completely useless as a clip. I have a "thick" belt, which I would guess is almost twice as wide as a standard men's suit pant belt. There isn't enough room between the hinge and the tooth so that it can securely grip the belt. Ok, so I decided to start wearing my "thin" belt. Well in that case there's a bit of extra room which with this clip seems to give way too much opportunity to falling right off. Being that it's currently winter where I live, this has left me stuffing the entire thing into my coat pocket. I'm not sure what I'll do when we move into spring and summer. This issue with the clip is really disappointing. I had a rather plain, generic type holster for my previous phone - a Sony S710a - and it perfectly gripped just about anything I threw at it. Only now am I realizing just how much I took that convenience for granted.
One positive about the clip is that it works just as advertised as a stand. And it works great propping up the phone in either the vertical or horizontal position. Given the very reasonable price and excellent protection, I have no problem recommending this case. I just wish it had a well designed clip which would have made it perfect.
UPDATE 05/12/2008 - If I could I would downgrade my rating from four stars to two. The clip is just so much worse and so much more of an inconvenience than I would have imagined. It's actually worse than having no clip at all because I've managed have my phone come right off my jeans about three times now which nearly resulted in me leaving it behind wherever I was at the time. It's a good thing the case provides good protection too because my phone has also fallen right off while I was walking or climbing stairs. Do yourself a favor and avoid this potentially rather expensive mistake of a case.
Otherwise, this is a great case and I love it. It protects, keeps the phone clean, and is slim and sleek. I use it with a screen protector and it works great. Love the stand, too.
Didn't have the heart to deduct a whole star for the volume thing, so please take this review as 4.5 stars. I recommend this case.
