It's a battery case, so you know it's going to be bigger and heavier than a normal case, which it is, but not too bad and not more than I expected. The problem is, the case has no grip. So it's heavier, and bigger, so I have a harder time getting my hand around it, and it's slippery. I almost dropped it several times in the couple days I've had it. I haven't yet, but I figure it's going to happen.
