The Metalix case is a snap-on-the-back case as mentioned above. Installation was simple and extremely secure. In fact, it fits so tight that removal was quite a challenge which is both good and bad. The build quality of the case is stunning to be honest. The case is constructed of a sturdy polycarbonate with an aluminum insert plate on the back. The edges of the aluminum plate are beveled to produce a nice shiny edge as seen above. Along the back sides of the case, there is a raised dot pattern to enhance grip and it also helps to keep the phone securely planted when it is set down. Like I mentioned before, the quality and look of the case is outstanding and I can't say enough about it actually!
The top and bottom of the case are wide open as would be expected. The left side of the case has a large cutout for the volume buttons and silent switch. The back side of the case has a pill shaped cutout for the camera with a black flash ring to eliminate any camera flashback from the LED flash.
Overall, I love this case and i'm surprised it doesn't appear in all big box stores along side the Incase snap case as it blows that one out of the water. I highly, highly recommend the Metalix case and for $29.99, it is an absolute steal. The case is offered in 5 different colors; black, blue, gray, purple and red.
