This has been a good purchase for my iPhone 12 mini. I wanted something to let the color show, and the highlights on this case are nice reinforcement (or extra color if you want to mix and match!). I have dropped my iPhone a couple of times from the bed stand and from my hands, but so far the case is doing its job!
The only bad part about this case is if you are around sand or gritty small dirt. If even a little gets into your pocket, it accumulates around the hole in the back for the camera, then gets between the back of the iPhone and the clear backing of the case. It hasn’t scratched up my iPhone yet, but the backing is getting a little scratched on the inside. I have had to keep an eye on that and clean it out a couple of times. Maybe a seal of some sort around the camera bump would fix that?
Overall though, I took a risk not getting the standard otterbox, and I am happy with the results so far!
