When the case arrived I was impressed with its armor-like appearance. It came in one of those sealed up little plastic bags with no instructions. I ripped into it and was immediately saddened when I took it apart and couldn't figure out how to get it back together. I am putting myself out there because nobody else has mentioned this and I am going to look pretty, well, non-ingenious over this. The problem was that I pulled everything apart so quickly without looking to see how it came apart; simply assuming it was only a phone case so how hard could it be? After a half-hour of trying every possible configuration I was frustrated and loudly announcing to my wife the usual stuff about how many degrees I have and all my experience and if I can't do it how do they expect anyone to do it? She took over to see if a woman's touch would help. She is a very smart lady, by the way (hi dear!). After about 15 minutes she didn't have any luck either and gave it back to me. Then, all of the sudden, after feeling like a clumsy baby playing with toy blocks, it went together. I carefully observed how it came apart this time and put it back together - slowly took it apart - etc. for several minutes. My advice after this is to not just rip into the back when it arrives. Carefully observe how the two pieces fit together (like a puzzle) and maybe even have someone else watch while you open it for a different perspective. The whole thing could have been avoided with a small instruction sheet (or, if we were visual or tactile learners instead of being more bookish).
That said, once the case was together the phone is like a little armadillo. I have dropped my Fire phone at least three times recently (about once a week), on various surfaces, with no damage. As I read in another review it would be nice if you could really stand-it-up like in the picture for reading, use as a bedside clock, etc., but the little prop-up thingy doesn't really work. Nevertheless, I bought it for the protective qualities and not for the other features.
One last admission of guilt - the case came with a screen protector. That was a very nice bonus. I have never used one and didn't know that there is a trick to applying them (apparently this is a pretty well known issue because I learned later there are even instructional videos on YouTube for how to properly apply a screen protector). Again, there were no instructions and again, like a guy, I moved too quickly and didn't think about what I was doing. I slapped it on and it got bubbles and dust under it. I then grabbed a paper towel and tried to wipe the dust off the sticky side of the protector thereby covering it in white lint. I finally got it on, with millions of little white lint bits under it, and realized what a truly handy and indispensable item it was for a glass phone like the Fire. Unfortunately, I had ruined it by that point. I went back to Amazon and ordered a multi-pact of iLLumiShields, read the reviews online of how to properly apply one, and successfully put one on my Fire with no issues and it has worked like a charm ever since.
My closing advice is to not move too quickly when you receive your package, instead taking your time to observe how everything fits together. Read some online advice for applying the screen protector and don't sweat it if you botch it as Amazon can have more at your house in a few days for next to nothing. Once everything is assembled it is pretty tough and has stood up to my clumsy handling for over a month now with no issues.
The case itself consists of two separate pieces plus there is a belt clip. There is a soft shock-absorbing sleeve made of silicone that goes on the phone first. Just make sure to line up the holes with the appropriate spots. The back cover is made of impact resistant hard polycarbonate that snaps on over top of the silicone sleeve. There is also 180-degree rotating belt clip, that the phone slides into, allowing you to carry your phone horizontal or vertical. They were also kind enough to include a screen protector with cleaning cloth. It was pretty easy to put on, just make sure your phone is totally clean and rub out any bubbles that may appear asap.
What I really love about this case is there is a built in foldable kick stand on the back of the case which is great for watching movies, videos or taking pictures. When you are not using it, it just snaps back into place and you don't even know its there. There is also a 2nd kickstand on the back of the belt clip. They are both very sturdy and very useful.
The only bad thing I have noticed, if the phone is not in the case and you put it in the holster, it is not very snug. The phone would more than likely work its way out of the holster and fall to the ground. But if the phone is in the case and you want to put it in the holster, it is kind of hard to put in because it is such a tight fit, but the phone is more protected this way. There is no way it will fall out of the holster when the case is on.
Overall, this is a pretty great case. I have dropped my phone numerous times already and it is still in one piece. I also love the bright colors you can choose from. It makes your phone look stylish while protecting it. I would recommend this case for your Fire Phone, I think I might get a couple more, just different colors!
There's also a belt clip where you slide the phone to carry it. Complete protection. The belt clip swivels to different angles.
Very happy with this case. Comes with screen film that I didn't use because I'm careful with screens.
At exactly 4 months I noticed one of the tabs on the external Hard case that clips on the belt developed a crack and eventually broke off completely, phone can no longer be clipped on the belt case, Also After 4 months of use my only complain is how the phone slides in and out of this belt case, There is a lot of friction and i end up pressing the power button or the side buttons on the phone when removing or placing the phone.
No issues with protection at all, happy in this area. but if I have to get another case I will try a similar one but with a different clipping style.
The clip on the holster could grip the belt better as it's fallen off a couple of times, compared to the SEIDIO that I've used in the past.
The rubber surrounding the phone could be better supported by the plastic frame as sometimes it deforms when inserting the phone into or removing the phone from the holster. It doesn't malfunction or tear, but it doesn't feel right.
