I have owned this case for 2 weeks and waited to see how it would stand up to some use before my review.



I like this case how it feels and looks and I have garnered some nice compliments. I have mine in red and black. There is also an extra front cover with raised lips 3mm height and that is dayum good for screen protection. But opting not to use a screen protector with this case proved to be a downside. You should always get a tempered screen protector on your own.

I'm not about to drop it and test the Military Grade drop protection, so I'll be taking their word for that part. I have dropped my phone 3 times from waist high to face down on the cement, there is barely anything happened to my phone.
On a positive note, it does work with wireless charging and is not too heavy.
The rubber border doesn't look high-end; I think a clear border would look sharper, but it is much easier to hold onto with the case installed rather than just the slippery phone itself.

Just a word of advice, wipe down the back of your phone before putting the phone in the case.
Overall, an excellent case and definitely bang for your buck.

I guess reading comprehension and proof reading your posts isn't your strong suit.

Got one of these myself, it's a bit bulky but I personally don't mind that.
The sound redirection is good, more often than not I would accidentally cover the bottom speaker watching videos and this solves that.
I'll see how well it protects my phone at work. I work in asphalt production and we will see how it takes the abuse.

I grabbed one, felt like I was going to break my phone putting it in and taking it out.

you just need to read the instruction. If that does not help, you might need to watch the video

At least it means the case is snuggggyyyy

I think there is a balance to be had. I did look at the pictures (I assume that is what you meant by "read" the instructions). Mine just had pictures.

I'm not a phone dropper. I think the last phone I dropped was a Helio Ocean.

So for me it's a balance of peace of mind (protection), function, and aesthetics. Sometimes I might need to take it out of the case... I literally needed to go get unrelated stuff to get the phone out (at first a flathead, but it ended up being easier with a credit card). It took several minutes to get it in and I was legit concerned about too much pressure.

I didn't go watch a video and there's no reference to a video on the insert.
