    I was informed on this forum that this case was a waste of money as the fingerprint sensor didn't work through and touch screen was usless.

    I put the case on it and it didn't read my fingerprint correctly, I then re stored my fingerprints with the case on and it works perfectly, just as responsive and reads my fingerprint everytime.

    The phone also reads my fingerprint when I remove the case.

    Well worth £17 although I don't think it's glass, feels a bit like plastic but I'm still impressed.

    Almost every review on this site rates the case 5 stars which is odd. A couple of 4 star ratings, too, but that's it.

    I looked up the case on Amazon and it's a completely different situation. The total rating average of these cases is about 2.5 to 3 stars. It looks like this case has major flaws in build quality.

    On top of that it's weird that it's advertised as 50% off on this store when 20€ seems to be its original price. Looks like a scam to me.

    It works well but not sure how it would stand up to a drop with it being a magnetic closure I think it would just open up on impact

    saw it on insta many times and It seems a nice case with all around protection. but the phone is already pretty big and look at the trim/edges around the phone from the case ....it becomes huge in my opinion.

    It takes a few goes to recregister the fingerprints, I found it worked best at the top of where you think the sensor is but once registered it works every time with the case on or off

    Quick review of this case after 48 hours using it.
    It is relatively well built. Encases the phone snugly, The case is quite light although a bit bulky. Would have preferred rounded edges instead of the chanfered edges. The blue edges are quite close to the color of the phone. The rounded glass on the front sticks well to the front glass of the phone. The flat back glass showcases the back of the phone really nicely.
    The magnets seem really sturdy. I'll see if it holds over time. It is incredibly simple to open and close though, which I think is nice srnce it incites to take the phone out of its case in safe conditions. I guess if it fell on the ground it might open on contact, but then the phone would not be falling anymore and not risk being damaged, so it would have filled its purpose.
    The glass is a fingerprint and dirt magnet, both outside and inside, which is a bit of a shame. There is also a lot of reflections on the front, which makes the phone really hard to look at in broad daylight.
    Did not have to re-register my fingerprint, it works quite well as is.
    My main complaint, since the front glass doesn't actually stick to the front of the phone, is that you lose quite a lot of touch sensibility, which can make typing quite annoying. Swiping works fine though, so it's not too much of a problem.
    Overall, quite a good case for the money.
