The phone fits in comfortab I purchased this case from Apple's Regent Street store in London on the 13-12-12 and I really like it. The phone fits in comfortably and without tempting fate it feels nice and secure.
There is a slight rim on the front of the case which should mean no more nasty scratches... Of course I would recommend a screen protector-after all iDevices are an investment.
My only criticism? The plastic on the back of the case picks up finger prints quicker than the CSI team....
Other than that it's a really nice product! …

This case is by far the best that I've owned. With it's rubberised internal and a sturdy plastic external with just enough rubber material jutting out over the front of the phone to protect the phone screen, this case is superb. I broke the screen of my iPhone 4S and this happened on the first drop of a brand new case, hence the purchase of the 5 and, I have to admit, I've been a bit butter fingers with it as it's been cold and hands are frozen, the puppy's been jumping up at me or just cos I'm wearing gloves, I've ended up dropping it on numerous occasions but its taken all the knocks and protected the phone perfectly. I take it on runs and mountain bike rides and have dropped it at speed. This comes highly recommended on my "cases to buy" to be honest and I've had quite a few over the years. …

I bought this case yesterday and after a days use it has already picked us several scratches on the back of the case. Also, the fi I bought this case yesterday and after a days use it has already picked us several scratches on the back of the case. Also, the fingerprints are very visible. I didn't really expect this because of the quite expensive price tag on this product.
Despite this, my iPhone 5 fits in perfectly and certainly makes your phone feel more secure. I was afraid of dropping my iPhone before buying this but now I have dropped it a couple of times and there is no damage at all. I have always said if you buy an expensive phone, invest in a good, expensive case which has the entire phone protected.
The Case design is also very good as it has a rubber rim around the top of the case which will protect the screen if it is dropped, these is a no worse feeling than seeing your favourite iDevice smashed on the floor, the possibility of this scenario is significantly reduced with the case on.
If you have £29.95 lying around in your wallet/purse then defiantly make this case a priority in your shopping list.
Best buy ever! …

Broken within 2 months
Around 2 months ago I bought this case directly from Apple and was very disappointed as 2 months after I bought it, it was already Around 2 months ago I bought this case directly from Apple and was very disappointed as 2 months after I bought it, it was already falling apart. The rubber over the charging hole had come apart from the plastic and was starting to come off. I was also disappointed as the plastic around the volume buttons was starting to crack, I don't take my case off much so I was very surprised to find that it had been build to a standard where it could crack just by taking it of a couple of times.
However if you don't care about any of the above, the case itself was very secure on my phone and it was protecting it. …

One of the most expensive cases, looks sturdy but falls to bits within a few months. Not good value.

Unfortunately it can't look after itself. There are two grades of material. First is a hard plastic shell. This scratches easily, and is brittle. Mine has cracked by the phone's silencing switch. The other material is the impact-absorbing rubber. In protruding areas this is peeling away in layers, as well as, in other places, separating entirely from the plastic shell. Looks a mess now, after about four months in my pocket. …
