The case feels sturdy and is fairly thin with a soft grip. It fits well on the phone but you may need to fiddle to place it precisely. I found the power button was 'caught' by the case meaning the phone would turn on/off, even though the case looked to be on perfectly. With a drag of a thumb up the right-hand case edge, it shifts a fraction and slips properly around the power button, permanently resolving the issue.
The phone fits the holster face-in and is headphone socket to the top - if you put the phone in with the headphone socket facing down, the holster will press the side buttons; it's not designed for that.
The holster can rotate from vertical to horizontal with two intermediary positions. The headphone socket faces forwards when worn horizontally on your right. It's easy to get the phone in and out, and having knocked the assembly quite hard a number of times, it hasn't fallen out yet!
My phone lives in the case and I use the holster daily - couldn't live without them now!
