Sadly, I dropped my G3 while exiting a car, and it landed face down, at which point I heard a sickening SPLAT sound. I kinda knew what I was gonna see before I even picked it up. The screen was demolished. I had really hoped the tiny raised edge around the phone would have protected it somewhat,(as it does if you simply lay it down screen-side down), but unfortunately, it provided what seems to be no protection to the screen.
I'm only dropping 1 star, because I didn't really expect it to protect it from a drop like that, and it really is a beautiful and comfortable case. If it had fallen back-side down, I think I would be ok, and it definitely protects against scratches, and pocket-first smacks, but the screen was doomed in this situation.

I have to say, this is by far, THE best, most comfortable case I have ever owned! I just received my LG G3 (fantastic phone!), and this case fits it, absolutely perfectly! This case goes on a BIG phone, but this is such a low-profile case, that it literally adds ZERO bulk to the phone. It's a well-made material, light, yet protective, and I love the android/matrix design on the case. I got the black version, but it comes in an awesome array of attractive colors, that should please just about any customer.
I picked this up for just over $10, which is a great deal!
I don't know how well this would protect the phone in a fall, but for average day-to-day use, it holds up really well.
So far, I'm extremely happy with this case...highly recommended!
As with most cases of this kind, dirt can get in between the case and the phone, and if it doesn't get removed it can actually scratch up the device (I've had this happen with several other tpu and silicone cases on different phones and different case brands). So I suggest removing the case every week or 2, and giving both the phone and interior of the case a quick wipe with a microfiber cloth to remove any debris that may have gotten in there. It only takes a few seconds to do so it's really not a major inconvenience.
I purchased both this and the Diztronic Matte Back Ultra TPU Case (padded corners) for my VS985 Verizon LG G3.

I own two Cruzerlite (clear apple green and matte white) cases and first learned about them on XDA. My EDC was the matte white and it started to stain a little after over a year of use, but there was no damage whatsoever despite rough treatment.
The build quality of this case appears to be similar if not superior to my earlier cases and the tolerances are tight. All of the holes line up well (If they're not lining up, you may want to rub the case a bit to even the tension and center the holes). Overall, excellent quality and if my suspicions serve me right, this case will last the rest of my phone's lifetime.
So what's the difference between this case and the Diztronic? Well first off, this case seems to be a solid single mold with a textured backing, whereas the Diztronic (while also well made) seems to utilize several moldings that were combined together. The Cruzerlite has a slight molding line along it's height center (it's barely unnoticeable to the touch and insignificant, but is visible). I'm usually very annoyed at these molding lines as it indicates shoddy quality, but it's barely perceivable on the Cruzerlite that I really don't mind. Concerning the multi-molding vs single modl approach, it's up to you to decide whether or not it will affect durability, but I can suppose theoretically that a single mold design is more durable in the long-term.
This case will feel a bit bulkier than the Diztronic Ultra, even with its extra padding along the edges. The Cruzerlite material is slightly thicker and rounder with a textured feel akin to smooth non-sticky rubber-- a contrast to the Diztronic's sharp and angled looks as well its slippery feel. The advantage to this is that you are much less likely to have the phone slip out of your hands, whereas I honestly can't say the same for the Diztronic. This does add perceivable weight and makes the phone feel substantially larger / heavier. That being said, the G3 is a fairly light phone on it's own, so if you feel that the naked phone is *too* light, this may turn out to be a plus.
In conclusion, both cases are excellent buys, but the Cruzerlite eeks out slightly ahead in my mind as an EDC case for a few reasons.
1) I've previously used Cruzerlite cases and I know I can trust it not to fall apart on me when I'm out doing my business.
2) It slides smoothly in my pocket, but is just grippy enough that I dont' worry about it sliding out of my palm during everyday use. This is a real concern I have with the Diztronic.
I have to point out however, that the Diztronic looks VERY nice and if you're looking for a case to look sharp and professional while providing extra corner protection, I'd choose the Diztronic whereas I would categorize this Cruzerlite case more as "fun", "functional" and "rugged". The Diztronic also has slightly tighter tolerances for holes and it has a gradual recessed lip near the volume/power buttons on the back. It's doesn't really enhance functionality in anyway (besides helping your finger slip onto the volume rocker slightly easier) but it is a very nice premium feeling that Diztronic cared enough to integrate tactile feedback directly into the case. I can't honestly say one looks better than the other since looks are subjective, and it's clear that Cruzerlite and Diztronic each set out with a unique look in each of their designs.
If you're like me and didn't want to choose between two great cases, buy both! Otherwise, I hope I've helped provide a little more information to influence your decision making-- you really can't go wrong with either of the cases.
