Protection and fit.- the cover holds itself securely to the device. It has fallen flat on its back an corners and came out intact. The cover may not be super grippy but is a definite upgrade from the phones back glass. All of this makes me feel wireless when handling the phone.
Looks and easy access - it looks clean and sharp and If needed some color I can put any paper image in its back since it is transparent. One other thing I was looking for was no flip flop front cover hanging while I'm talking on the phone. This has no such flip flop cover, problem solved.
