I had the corresponding case for my iPhone 4 and really liked it. Might get this for my iPhone 5.

My gripes with the iPhone 4 version: it used micro-usb instead of a regular dock passthrough connection. That means that I couldn't use any other accessories while using this. So I had to remove the case to use any of my other accessories. Which didn't work well if I had depleted my iPhone's battery and was using the Mophie case to charge it.

Beat me to it!

My other gripe is how much thickness it added. It made using the volume buttons difficult to use with my fat fingers. I wouldn't mind the added thickness if they had overlays for the various buttons.
