Looks great for the first hour but after that its all downhill. The gloss back scratches very easily, seems like a frosted or textured plastic would have made much more sense. But I suppose every scratch on the case is a scratch that isn’t on the phone, but for the price point I would have expected more durability.
Also, mine had a spur where the rubber sides meet the plastic back that scratched up my phone's bezel, pretty disappointing, and ironic that the most damage done to the phone so far was by the one thing meant to protect it. c’est la vie...
Overall it’s ok, but there are likely better options.
I would have given this case at least 4 stars had the manufacturing of the case been of better quality. In terms of design, it's sleek, adds little bulk, and showcases the beauty of the iPhone while providing sufficient protection to the back, sides, and corners. The worst features of the case are the rough edges on the borders of the plastic and scratches and scrapes within the clear plastic covering the back of the phone--indicators of the poor quality manufacturing of this product. Also, I exchanged my first case for another after seeing the scratches and the replacement also had similar scratches. Overall, it's seems like they rushed manufacturing of this product from the factory in China to immediately follow the release of the iPhone 5. Buyer beware!
