It makes your phone thicker. It fits in your hand better but not your pocket. Mine also binds with the slide out qwerty keyboard to the point the number row at the top is non-accessible unless you push a bit harder to click it out. I've since taken it off my LG 2 after having it on for a month and the novelty of the design wore off. It's more fashionable than functional. It'd not have bought one, had someone pointed this out.
