|The Knight of Swords by Noelle Stevenson|
I bought one anyway because what it looks like is most important to me and I was completely in love with the Knight of Swords by Noelle Stevenson.
A year and some months later, this is the review of Society6's Casemate case printing I wish I had.
Over the course of the year the paint has rubbed off the corners and edges. It took about 8 months before it became noticeable.
|At 12 months it went from noticeable to disreputable looking.|
|Debris inside the case.|
The case started out very secure on the phone. Quickly (a few months) it because slightly loose. Just loose enough to get debris caught inside the case where it rubbed the metal and damaged my phone. I don't take the case off very often, so I don't think it was anything I did to stretch it out.
|The pits in the metal go all the way around.|
I drop my phone at least once a week. With only a little bit of damage to the case, it's protected my phone from concrete, tiles, and my own stupidity. It finally broke last week near the buttons (exactly where I'd been expecting a break) after a nasty drop. As far as durability goes, the case has definitely saved my butt. It's not exactly an Otter Box, but it does pretty freakin' good for one of the thinnest cases I've seen.
It doesn't do anything to protect the front, so I employed plastic sticky screen covers, which works well.
My sister-in-law bought her phone case around the same time as mine. She got hers from RedBubble.
If forty dollars isn't anything to you, and you want to change your case out every 6 or 7 months, Society6's phone cases are for you.
However, forty bucks is a lot to me, and I was disappointed. I was hoping to carry around a little piece of art that would hold up over time and protect my phone. My phone's pretty protected, but the body's also scratched from the loose fit, and now the printing is degrading. While I was very glad to carry around Noelle Stevenson's art, I doubt I will buy a Society6 case again.
And I'll keep my art store over on RedBubble.
