I read all the negative reviews on Amazon but still elected to give it a shot. There just aren't many choices available. The reviews were right. It's dreadful. The part that covers the kickstand is too tight, causing the stand to bow inward, preventing the stand from closing on the sides. I fear the stand could eventually be bent or broken under the stress. Second, the case comes apart each time the stand is deployed. It has to be reassembled and snapped back into place every time. Several reviewers say they are not experiencing these issues, but they are greatly outnumbered by those of us who are. I wonder if Incipio has revised the product or if it's just a quality control issue. I contacted Incipio, but they have not responded.
