    Note: I'm new to this, so bear with me.

    Price: $23, $3 shipping
    Ship time: 2 weeks

    Packaging: Impressive. Nice box, CoA (lol), instructions, and a nifty little screwdrive with extra screws.

    Quality: Nice. There are a few issues I had;
    • The backplate (which is a sticker) was a bit scratched.
    • The seams where you screw it together aren't as smooth as I'd like.
    • There are some spots with missing paint.
    All in all though, nothing I'd really notice if it wasn't mine.

    Fit: Decent. I fiddled with it for about an hour, and I think it's about as good as it's going to get. I have a Zagg on the front, but the frame doesn't get close to it, so that's not an issue; I think it's the foam inserts' (they call them 'crash pads') fault. Upon close inspection, the phone isn't as much held in place by the frame as it is by the pressure of the inserts; I'm pretty sure I could pull it off without unscrewing it, but it's secure enough for normal use.

    Overall: Nice case. I'd be really irked if I paid $129 for it, but at $23 I'm happy with it.

    EDIT: Also, because the bottom of the frame extends out so much, it doesn't make a full connection in about half the docks I use.
