This case is pretty good in terms with of protection. Has raised lips on both sides, and the corners are pretty well cushioned. I really like the clear case aspect because you get to show off your phone little.
However, the issue with the clear plastic hard back is that it really attracts oils and finger prints, which really ruins the aesthetic. I need to constantly clean mine off. Also, maybe this is just me, but I find the plastic back feels really cheap - like I put a dollar store case on my phone. I'm not trying to say it isn't durable, I just think it actually feels cheap.
Overall, for the price I can't complain too much, but if I were to buy a case again it wouldn't be this one.
Side note: I am using a popsocket and it sticks quite well to the case.
