To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This case is great value. The material of the case feels like good quality. Its a snug fit, but not tight. It has a nice grippy texture and a nice ergonomic fit for the fingerprint sensor, which makes it very easy and comfortable to use. The clicky buttons on the side are very satisfying. The case offers nice protection for the screen on the front and for the camera on the back. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I tried two other cases for the Pixel 5 but both had deal-breaking flaws.
This case gets almost everything right. The material is good quality and the fit is snug but not tight, enough to stay in place but not be a problem to remove e.g. for SIM swaps and cleaning. It has ridges around the screen and camera bump for protection, which don't affect your ability to swipe from the side for the "go back" gesture.
Grid is reasonable on the back and great on the sides.
There are holes for the speakers at the bottom which don't have much impact on the sound quality. The USB port has good clearance so only the largest plugs will have issues. The bottom part does not dig into your hand as you hold the phone. The side buttons feel good and responsive, not mushy.
One major problem with the other cases was the fingerprint reader. The hole was too small to easily reach it. I found that after I deleted and re-added my fingerprints the hole in this case is big enough to work every time instantly.
Oh and the back isn't flat but the phone rests steadily on a desk (no rocking) and transmits vibration reasonably well. It's not too thick either, doesn't add much bulk.
The only minor complaint I have is that the lanyard holes are not very useful. They are extremely small so it's hard to thread them and they are in the wrong place. They are on the right at the bottom where most people rest their palm when holding the phone. On the left would have been better, maybe half way up the side so the lanyard doesn't foul your hand and is well placed to loop through your fingers for safety.
Overall these guys did a great job - an affordable, grippy, well designed phone with no major flaws.
Nice and protective should proctecr from every angle doesn't add too much bulk to the phone and weighs very little would recommend highly only issue is the cut out for the finger print scanner isn't positioned well
