I was excited for this to arrive, as when I walk the dog or work in the garden I am always misplacing or dropping my phone. I could not answer the phone or make a call just by pushing through the plastic covering. It is tough to get my phone out of the phone ‘pocket’, (my phone is 5-1/2” x 2-1/2”j. I think this case is more for a smaller phone, and listening to music. Does keep phone handy.
