-nice color, white border looks great with white iphones
-volume/lock buttons, headphone jack, speaker/charging slot and the silent switch are still accessible
-skinny case provides enough protection that if it lands on a flat surface, the phone is high enough off the ground that it won't scratch the screen (both front and back)
-it doesn't cover the back or front, so if you drop it on something that isn't flat, the glass on either side could get scratched. however, it's obvious that this case doesn't cover everything so if that's a surprise to you, then it's kinda your own fault for not realizing it.
