I was looking for a clear case that would show the beauty of my phone And this is exactly what I was looking for. The raised corners allow me to set the phone down without worrying about the screen. The sides are not raised, so you still get the functionality of the screens edge. I love that the back is clear, to show my purple phone, but the sides are purple so I can still see some purple when looking at the screen. This one seems a little sturdier than another brand I previously used, it also feels like it's a better grip, with no sliding on my hands. I love it!
