The angle is just about perfect. It was driving me CRAZY having my phone lay flat on my desk. Partly because I’m paranoid about scratching up the back, and partly because I like to glance at notifications when they come in.
Battery life is good enough (and spare Lightning cables scarce enough) that I’m not going to integrate charging yet. And I want to figure out how to raise it enough to allow the headphones to be plugged in (at the bottom). But it’s a start.
