Good value for the money. I couldn't afford the 30 or 50 dollars for those other cases. That's ridiculous for a piece of rubber and plastic. I do realize how much I need to protect my phone. I can never go back to a regular phone after having a smart phone and this caused me to insure it because there are many bad things that can destroy your phone that a $50 case cannot protect it from, like getting run over in a parking lot or sliding from your pocket into the commode. This is a nice thick silicone case with texture on the sides for easy gripping. If money doesn't grow on trees for you and you want to protect your awesome phone get this.
