Size is nice, it's not too intrusive. I worried a bit about the edges of the phone not being covered, but i have had no problems with it so far. The major drawback of this case are the razor sharp edges the case has on all sides. They really should have been been removed in the production process. I removed them myself, but this way a layer of paint is removed, and the plastic itself is white, so it doesn't look good anymore. I'm sorry to say it, but I wouldn't recommend this case to anyone.
Poor plastic not up to the job.
I've had my Case Mate case for nine months. Cracks started to appear after a couple of months but didn't get any bigger. However the rubberised finish is now starting to wear off. Two of the corners have completley cracked off leaving the phone looking very sorry for itself. It's a shame that something that costs Â£15.00 for a few grammes of shaped plastic could not have lasted longer than this. Come on Case Mate do some proper research on your materials before releasing them to the public. I could not recommend this product to anyone.
so...... i purchased one of these a number of months back and within weeks, cracks and chips (yes, my custom image was chipping away!) were starting to appear on the edges. I treat my phone like a fragile kitten, so its not like I abuse my phone. I contacted customer service, they happily replaced the item (I didn't even have to send the broken one back!). Now, I'm onto my second cover, within weeks, cracks were starting to appear again. its sad..... i really like the custom option, but the quality is crap. I paid $40 + (to australia.) for this item and I'm not happy. never will i purchase again.
Super product but material lacks resitance to cracks
Bought mine on Ebay in August 2011 and it's plainly the best case I ever owned. Major disadvantage is the material's resitiveness to cracks. Mine has a crack that started growing on its own at the lower left corner, by the speaker.
Echo and crack
I bought the case 1 month ago and I had to change it one week ago because it was already cracking in the bottom left corner. Not enough with this, the case makes an annoying echo, making the person you are talking to hear their voice unpleasantly. A real shame because it looks beautiful, so definitively very bad invested 20â‚¬.
After only 4 months of use, the case is beginning to crack at 2 corners. I would expect cheap $5 cases to do this but not casemate. It's very disappointing. It makes me question their quality control. (please see the picture included)
