When I looked at this online I thought it was a little pricy but bought it because it said it would protect the phone and wasn't too thick. When it came in the mail I had my doubts. It is a very thin case. Beautiful, but thin. I didn't think it was worth the money when I held it in my hands. However, the next week I dropped it off some bleachers onto the concrete 5 feet below. It works!!! Definitely sturdy. Worth the cash.
About the print:
The elephant is perfect on the phone...but the background is solid black. Looking at the picture, I was under the impression that there would be a pretty pattern behind the elephant. I am looking at it right now though and it is solid black. No background, but a very cute elephant.
