Absolutely love it!
on March 20, 2013
When my year-old T-Mobile case broke, I found this one. Boy, am I sorry I didn't look for it sooner.
It is made of a pliable but resilient silicone that is actually just a smidge larger than the phone itself. That makes it extremely easy to put on. How does it stay on? When installing it, I had to push the little grip clips onto the phone. They went right in, And stayed there. The cover actually molded itself onto the phone over a period of about 1 minute. There was no stretching or forcing involved. Now that it has been on the phone for several weeks, it looks like it will never come off and it doesn't show the tendency to pop off the corners that harder, tighter cases do.
Next is the color. It is now so easy to find the phone. The color is bright, but not overly so. It is a little darker than pictured but quite nice.
The best part of all is that the phone practically bounces when dropped a short distance. The cover is springy but tough at the same time. It is also quite "grippy". I can put the phone down almost anywhere without worrying about it slipping or sliding around. And the soft corners are kind to my pockets.
Finally, I come to the buttons. This cover does not have a cut out where the On-Off button is. It has a button over the button, which makes the switch very easy to find and use. Every other button is covered in the same way. It is almost like working with the "naked" phone. Every button is covered by a raised analog that acts like it was the original button underneath it. Even the charging receptacle has a wide, tapered opening that makes it easy to insert the charger plug.
Where was this gem when I first bought my phone?
