First for the positive. I absolutely love the gueniune distressed leather look and the slots for select important ID and/or credit cards. Unfortunately, there are some practical setbacks. The first one being the decision to make the button access on the sides of the phone be simple depressions which makes button access far more difficult than it should be. I would’ve hoped for a pad of leather in each button area that creates a raised relief where you can easily find and push the buttons. I removed one star for this misstep. The last gripe I have is the snap fit of the case. I don’t know if this happens to a lot of customers or if this is an isolated anecdotal case, but one of the walls of the case does not fully wrap around the front side of the phone. This has made that side of the case pull off the side of the phone making the button access even more difficult. If these two issues were resolved in subsequent designs, I would, without hesitation, deem this one of the best cases I have ever purchased, in both design and functionality.
