    worked well for a few weeks and then became faulty. The window allowed swiping but the widgets disappeared.No help on line readily available and no manual to help with troubleshooting as far as i can see

    As the purpose of a phone cover is to protect the phone this cover is worse than useless, regardless of any cool features it might claim. The ‘gel adhesive’ does not reliably secure the phone in the cover, the phone will fall out when you open it and hit the floor unprotected. This cover is all but guaranteed to ensure your expensive phone is damaged. Don’t buy it.
