This case comes in two pieces and you could actually live without the band which in this particular case would probably be the best option from my experience,we will go into that later.The case however is nice all round,comfortable and offers good protection all round even if the outer band is a little weak..

The outer TPU skin is thicker than most on offer and there is no harm in that though the band that sits atop is quite weak on the sides,the key parts though where excellent with good tactility and travel which made the keys easier to use..

Top and Bottom. – The case does leave easy access to ports but to an extent especially on the bottom for Micro USB charging,Here is where I had issues due to the huge gap which you will see below,perhaps it may have been a faulty case here but you can see the distance between the outside and the base of the phone,it is rather big and yes the case is fitted correctly. Also on the top of the case the mic is covered by the outer ring which you can see pictured below too.. (click to enlarge)

 

Left and Right Sides – The left and right sides just house the keys on the Note 5 on the case there is branding on the bottom right hand side,they keys themselves worked a treat and made them easy to use and I found no issues with functionality or travel and overall a nice experience to use..

 

Front and Back – On this case there is a lip around the front which is ideal if you are one to place your device face down and dont sport a screen protector,the lip comes around onto the front giving it a good deal of protection and feels quite solid,the outer band here really enforces the entire case into one solid piece,the back also protects the camera and flash area leaving it below flush level protecting it from harm on flat surfaces so you can be sure that then lens or flash for example will be be prone to scratches provided the flat surface you rest it on is dirt free..
