Pros: Covers entire iPhone, including all buttons -- only speakers are left exposed; case doesn't slide around; thick silicone for good protection; dock and headphone covers are permanently attached; excellent build quality

Cons: Screen protection plastic is somewhat grainy; hard to apply screen protection plastic without bubbles; case thickness makes it tough to tap some buttons; some assembly required to put the case together

This case covers the entire iPhone, including all buttons, the Apple logo (with a clear plastic insert so you can still see the logo), and even the sensor area at the top of the phone (another clear plastic insert).

It's a thick case, which is good for protection, but buttons located in the corners of the screen can be hard to tap. Also, dragging icons from one screen to the next requires pushing the soft case out of the way with your finger--otherwise, you can't get the icon close enough to the screen edge to trigger the 'move to next screen' action.--Rob Griffiths
