Literally it feels like the stock case on steroids. It does NOT have any pockets in the back for flight tix or biz cards.
I think if I were to go on a marathon read on the beach during the day tho, I would swap this case out for the stock one.
The wedge itself is not only tappered, but it sits on top of the screen itself and fits perfectly.
Reading without the light is fine. Didn't have any issues reading the text.
The overall size is bigger obviously. The height is about a 1/4 of an inch taller and it is about an inch wider.
So far, I'm pleased with the idea of the product, the workmanship and the fact that it was a total suprise to see in the threads (THANKS!).
Hope this helps.
