The Symmetry case offers excellent back and side protection for iPhoneX. As for the front, one can put an ‘invisi-glass' type of screen protector for complete protection. Considering the expense of iPhoneX and the fact that the front and back are glass, it gives one peace of mind to seek out the right degree of protection for the phone even if some would argue against it on the grounds that the glass is Gorilla glass. Here, then, are some noteworthy points about this case:
* It allows the phone to sit in a recessed manner in the case. So the phone's body is protected in a bumper-style manner. Thus, if one drops the phone and it lands on one of its corners, the case's bumper rather than the phone's glass will take the brunt of the impact just as a good protector should do. I would add that due to the way in which the case ‘cuddles' the phone, the dimensions of a front protector screen should so chosen as to prevent the screen's edges from contacting the case's bumper and losing its ability to completely adhere to the phone.
* The ‘recessed' aspect mentioned above applied to the lens as well so that if one places the camera down, face up, the lens will not be touching a hard surface. Gorilla glass or not, that is a good protective feature for the iPhoneX's lens.
* Symmetry offers a good grip all around its sides. Holding the case, one feels that the case won't just slip out of one's hand like a smoother [faux] leather case might tend to do.
