I prefer keeping my phone in a case, and this one does the job. It is sturdy and looks nice. The clips and loop on the back keep it firmly-attached to your belt. The magnet keeps the flap securely-closed. With this one, your phone is protected and is not going anywhere. This is the second one I have had. The first needed to be replaced after a year and a half of heavy use. The magnet became weak.Wireless Emporium delivered the product quickly.
