I initially looked at the flip case, but having had a go with a friends, I didn`t like the `flip` when making a call.

I started looking round for alternatives and spotter the Amzer Pudding TPU case.

I wanted something with protection all the way round the phone. I`ve seen several where the corners are exposed. Dropping it on a corner is something I had with an old phone and it immediately cracked the glass, so a fully enclosed cover was top of the list.

This has a `rubberised` texture and in use, it certainly feels grippy. The edges are sticky enough so you won`t drop it easily, but not so bad that you can`t get it in and out of your pocket without it `grabbing` the material.

For 6.50 delivered, I really can`t complain.

Amzer logo embossed onto the rear of the case


Full edge coverage

Neat cutout for the headphone


Camera & Speaker cutouts


Power and Volume controls are covered, but they are easy to use and I haven`t struggled to press the buttons at all.

But a drop of more than 2-3 feet would probably still break the phone. To get better protection, one should have a case with thick rubber bumpers on the corners like the Trident or Ballistic case. But of course, it wouldn't be as pocket friendly.

I have this case and dislike it. It adds too much thickness for me, but about what you can expect from a TPU case. I buy cases for scratch protection rather than drop protection. I hate the glossy bezel and just wish they had that same back finish for the entire case. The finish of the back is nice since it doesn't pick up fingerprints. The last thing I can't stand is how small the usb connector cutout is. This can probably be fixed with a knife, but it still shouldn't come like that.

is it sturdy material or flexible that it can be like silicon cover in the ease of putting/removing the phone from it?

It is not terribly difficult to put this case on or remove it. One of the best features of this case for me is the matte back section which greatly improves grip and the button molds in the side.

Every time I use a heavy-duty case though I end up removing it after a few months and using a less-protective one because of the bulk, tpu cases seem like an "OK" compromise (or at least I hope).

I've been eyeing the Cruzerlite bugroid ones since watching this IRL drop test (nexus 5) video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KY9Svj9fYVg but the Amzer one reviewed here looks very nice

It does provide good protection but makes the device look dull. I guess I'll have to buy something else for my wife.
