I got this to replace the Apple silicone case that tore up at the bottom. This is simple, sleek and works great for me. It is very attractive. I have the silver iphone with the white front and I got the gray case, which, by the way is only gray around the edges....the back is either transparent or a much lighter grey. It is super attractive. You can turn your phone face down and the rim keeps the phone's screen from touching the surface. I also dropped it on my concrete driveway and absolutely nothing happened. Apple will never get my money again for phone covers.
