After using this case for a long time now I can give an honest review of it so I'll be straight and to the point.

Pros:
Adds grip that is very much needed with the phone.
You can easily pull phone out of you pocket unlike some other cases that grip too much on cloth.
Good protection and the front bezel allows you to lay the phone face down without fear of scratching the screen.
Stays clean... can't remember a time that I had to clean it.

Cons:
Buttons are a little stiff and don't move much.
Headphone jack was too small (or case was too thick around the area) for some plugs so I had to remove case in some instances.
The plastic piece that goes around the TPU breaks/cracks pretty easy. Being an avid flasher and removing battery a few times a month cause enough strain for the plastic to give out and break. Without this plastic piece, the case can easily start to come off in your pocket.

Maybe a few of the cons are the reason behind them discontinuing them.

Received mine today Black on Black combo and I'm pretty happy with it.

I must say the frame sits a bit loose on the sides so everytime you hold the frame it pushes in
Does anyone have this issue? maybe I got the dud one

I noticed the frame says "De igned by SPIGEN in California"

Mine fits the same way.. I hate that. The mispelling is common on fake, well all are fake now. Mine is not misspelled but the words aren't readable 100%

Oh I'm not too worried about the misspelling

You can barely see it but it's probably because of the black frame

But the fit is annoying every time I pick my phone up

So I take it you've received your black/green case? any pics

So after having it on the phone for awhile now the black frame around the case seems to of settled and doesn't feel loose around the sides like it did when I first fitted it

So yesterday I tried to remove my case and well got a little aggressive with the frame and snapped it :@

Good thing is the actual TPU part wraps around the phone nicely still but I did a temporary fix by super gluing the crack part of the frame together for the time being.

I did just order another black/black case from a different seller on eBay who goes by the name qiu09 who is selling it cheaper at $6.99US from Hong Kong where as I bought it before from ee-beauty on eBay and I paid $9.85US from China

Will see if there is any differences between this one and the one I have now.

Apart from a few quality issues I'm still pretty happy with the case for the price I paid and if this new case is just as good then it would be even better at $7
