    Promising Review: "I love love love love this phone case! It is clear and it protects my phone a lot! I have dropped it accidentally about two times and the fear of my phone dropping on the cement was harsh, but it left no scratch on my phone! The corners of the phone case help a lot, and the price of this phone is unbelievable! I am actually purchasing another because I love it so much!" –Sarahi Cordero

    2. A dual-layer case that has nifty ridges to prevent accidental slippage, especially if you're in a rush or working out.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "I love this case. It fits snugly on the phone, but it comes off easily if necessary. It fits inside my running armband because it's so slim and low profile. It's cute and classy, and has it protected my phone from several drops and my dog snatching it right out of my hand. The texture on the back is nice and helps me grip the phone, but the smooth sides go in and out of my pocket easily. It doesn't collect dirt or anything in the grooves on the back like my last case did, and doesn't keep fingerprints either." –Esther

    I get over two times the battery with this case. I no longer worry about making it through the day even with serious phone usage. It's legit protection. I accidentally dropped my phone out the window of my vehicle while traveling 30mph, not kidding, and the phone had NO DAMAGE. I was shocked and impressed. Anyway, just buy this thing." –Mr. Holmes
