This is a well-built case that looks very stylish and offers great protection in day-to-day use. It is really handy having some functionality accessible without having to flip the case cover open. The volume and Bixby buttons are protected by the spine of the case cover when closed, but easily accessible when the cover is open. The case does add bulk to the phone's slender profile, but I personally like the improved grip the case gives. I have had no issues folding the cover back when using the phone normally. A kickstand emerges like a Transformer when you need it. The biggest flaw is the same issue that other reviewers have nentioned: the front cover tends to fly open about half the time when the phone is dropped, exposing the screen to a direct hit.
