Fit is perfect, cutouts are spot-on. Supports the Smart Cover. I've been waiting forever to get a super-thin matte NON-slippery version, yet hard plastic since I detest TPU's goolike feel. This case is exactly that. Now, why I bought green? ummm......not sure what got into me there. But I absolutely love this case. It's exactly what I've been looking for, with one exception. I'd like to have a snap cover that uses the magnet to keep it attached to the back (like a Belkin Snap shield secure). But Belkin is the slowest friggin company in the world, so this case will do just fine, especially with the mini where it's not as big a deal like on my 3. The unique thing about this case appears to be the covered buttons. Well, they did a good job there because they work perfectly, great responsiveness. This one's a keeper.
