I've been using this case for nearly 2 years. It's saved the phone from a number of high drops. When removing the case from the phone, be careful and take your time or you can snap the front piece, like I did. But the rubber bumper keeps it all together once reassembled, even if the front piece breaks in two. Also, if you use the kickstand a lot, it will eventually wear out, like mine just did. But it is definitely worth the price to protect the phone. I'm buying another one, mostly because I like the kickstand and I want it to work like it used to.
