Promising review: "The picture is of the original case I had on my phone for TWO years! I’ve never had a case (or phone) last that long because I’m super clumsy and my phone gets chunked to the ground multiple times a day. This case has done such a wonderful job of protecting my phone while still looking good itself. I went ahead and bought another one because the original was getting grimy .. I’m sure I could have cleaned it but knowing myself I would break my phone in the time it took to do that. I got a green one this time and installation was super easy. When I took the old case off my phone still looked brand new. I’m definitely impressed with this product!" — KAM043
