My expensive earbuds have a pretty low-profile jack but even so
on December 1, 2016
I think the positive reviews may be fake. The packaging is very plain with no information about the product and comes with no instructions for installing the screen protector. The screen protector itself doesn't make full direct contact with the iPhone screen (it's advertised as bubble-less, but it's really just one big bubble). The case has rubber flaps that protect the mute switch, headphone and charger ports, and the back camera, but these flaps are very rigid and you have to fight with them to get them open. On top of that, the case leaves only a very small hole to reach in and access the mute switch. Unless you have child fingers or carry around a paperclip all the time, you won't be able to reach it. The hole over the headphone port is also very small. My expensive earbuds have a pretty low-profile jack but even so, the case completely blocks them from being plugged in. The faceplate is secured to the rest of the case by a series of clips, but I found it impossible to get the one above the phone screen to click shut. It's like the case is too small for the phone it was made for; you can't button it closed all the way.
The pattern on the exterior looked fine and it actually did feel very durable when put together. I could even imagine this case being a steal for someone who never uses headphones or the mute switch, and doesn't mind the the shoddy construction of the guard flaps and screen protector, but those problems are impossible for me to overlook. All in all, I knew I had been ripped off 5 minutes after unboxing. I will be returning this product and going for something that doesn't feel quite so shoddy.
tl;dr: Cheap, Chinese, dollar store crap phone case
