PROS: Full-coverage case with accessible ports; nicely grained leather feels good in the hand; bottom of case slides off for docking access; well made; includes screen protector and cleaning cloth.

CONS: Tight fit makes case hard to install or remove case; leather is a bit slippery.

This case fits very tightly, and as a result, it can be somewhat tough to install and remove -- especially because the screen protector is an overlay, and doesn't adhere directly to the iPhone's screen. Once on, however, protection is excellent. I personally found the brown/pink color combination to be just a bit too bold for my tastes, but in black/black, the end result is sharp looking.--Rob Griffiths
