It is extremely useful, open the case to switch on. Even with the case closed the camera and phone are still available.
After all this time the case was showing no real signs of wear.The phone clips in with flexible corner holds.
The camera protrudes into a space in the back of the cover. Without the cover the protruding camera is vulnerable, with the cover it is well protected.
However I saw this genuine case for sale in MobileFun at a very much lower price than I had originally paid, so I decided to treat myself to a nice fresh blue cover and give my phone a new lease of life. Most satisfied.
