Vendor dropped the ball and the quality of the case and glass is terrible. Just a few months in and I've got cracked glass and a destroyed case. I'm not even that hard on my phones. I can't remember dropping my phone more than twice, neither from very high, and now noticing cracks everywhere. Hoping the case will last until Sunday when I have an otter box coming.
You get what you pay for.
just realized my order did not go through due to a billing error. Any way I can still get in on the drop?
Great product, I picked one up the last time there was a drop, but the vendor really shit the bed on this one. +2 months to deliver a phone case? Probably won't pick one up again just because I have no idea when I'll see what I bought
Any way to just get the glass? Have an FACE case already but had to toss the glass when I got a new phone.

One big thing that I forgot. This case blocks you from accessing Control Center on iOS 10. You need to swipe up from off the screen at the the bottom and then up onto the screen. With this type of case this can be very hard. My wife finally gave up on it and now is going for a full front glass and slim case for the back.

Last thing I knew was that the vender was behind schedule. But that email was a week ago I think, and I though there would be an update yesterday but no such luck

I still don't understand. I keep seeing this drop but isn't this the same $4-$5 Chinese case all over Ali express, eBay, and etc? Just rebranded with fancy marketing? Or is there actually anything different about this?

Yep, nothing's different.
I really like these cases I paid about $4 from aliexpress - Floveme is the brand on AE

Thanks for the tip. Cost me $4.46 shipped To Canada. Saved me $40.
This is a Chinese case that costs not even $10 anywhere else.. How ridiculous.
I'll be fair...while I do love the look of my phone in this. It doesn't feel as good as other options for this price.

It gets dirty very easily (Gold , 6Plus) , you can see your very own lovely natural oil all over this thing very clearly.
I got mine and there's a weird dent bent thingy around the ear-speaker that just hurts and feels weird , tho I don't think thats intentional. (I did contact them and they did offer a solution so Kodus for customer support \o/)
The area around the home-button didn't sit well , the upper part wasn't snug with the bottom part causing that area to create 'clicking' sound whenever you pressed the home button , very irritating.

I really wanted to love this but it just didn't live up to this unreasonable price.

It doesn't FEEL premium but it doesn't feel bad either. Its a very soft'ish plastic'ish feeling(ish?) which feels cool and okay , but its really not a $35~ feel , I'd rather throw some more $ at an other case and get a thicker, LEATHER or WOOD case that's going to feel PREMIUM and unique and quite frankly gonna LOOK better in some cases too :/

This would've an awesome case for the $15, $25 , $30 (max) price-point(s) , but right now if I were you , I would've looked elsewhere.

TL;DR -

Pros;
•Looks great
•Feels nice
•Features a screen protector (which I didn't use)
•Great customer-support

Cons;
•Gets dirty easily (Oil , scratches , random dirt between the case and the screen edges)
•While it feels nice - doesn't feel PREMIUM or or something like that.
•Mine arrived a bit broken'ish but...yeah hopefully yours won't

I really didn't want to write this 'feedback' while I hate hurting businesses and in any kind of sense bring NEGATIVE review , usually I'd rather keep it to myself like with some OTHER products I purchased here - sometimes I tell myself I might just be a BIG bitch and am just enjoying complaining. But I really felt bad sitting aside now and letting this one just...be a thing.
Don't get me wrong , the case is O K overall if you're in the market for low profile great design cases that bring both looks and surround protection. But don't expect this to be SUPER PREMIUM or FEEL WOWOWOWOW or be TOP NOTCH or anything like it :/
Its just , its really on the "MEH" point.

Cheers p_p
Search"iPaky case" on amazon and save yourself $30. Ridiculously priced case that can be had on amazon for less than 10 bucks...

Some commentary on this. I'm not passing judgement; it's just the environment that western developers have created for themselves.

A lot of times when things get sent overseas for manufacture, a copy is made by whomever is in charge of the factory. Then, while they are making parts for the original company, they use almost the identical design themselves, and sell it locally. Depending on which patents are in place, it might even get sold back to the original market as a competitor. And the original designers can't do anything about it because they would be trying to fight a legal battle against a huge manufacturing infrastructure, which they can't afford.

Lets say FACE/Phantom Glass decides to pursue this company and gets them to shut down with a monetary compensation. That company can just fold, and then pop up later under a different name, repeating the cycle. So the only guys that lose are FACE.

The only way to prevent this is if FACE were large enough to wholly own the factory overseas with proper security and contracting and legal and all that. Again, quite expensive, but then they would be able to justify and maintain a higher margin prices because you won't be able to get it any where else for a while.

That's the gist of it. So when you find a product ridiculously cheap and just as good, it's because it's exactly as good, stolen from the original source design.

So in other words "buy from eBay/Amazon/Alibaba" hah
