I've purchased several other manufacturers' cases and could not find quality combined with function. This beautiful case does all: I can easily press on/off buttons and volume, without hard pressure. Other cases cover the buttons and sacrifice function for safety. The leather on this is beautiful; the phone easily inserts, and the corners are protected enough for the handling I need. I don't throw my phone around or leave it unprotected- usually have it in a secure place in my purse.
