Tried on the one that had the clear plastic back, but then found this one that protects the whole phone - it is also much less bulky than some of the cases, and it is very easy to put on and off and it also fits very well on the phone.

I love the feel of the case, which isn't slick, it has a good grip to it. I love that the side, or as some refer to the bumper really protects all around the phone. Plus the fact that the case is a gelly type case it makes it easy to take on and off and clean easily. This case also doesn't add any bulk to the looks and weight which is also a plus. …

Yes bae yes!!
I purchased this case three months ago after my former case, a Speck Candyshell, broke after only five months. I am someone who lo I purchased this case three months ago after my former case, a Speck Candyshell, broke after only five months. I am someone who loves function as well as aesthetics. I believe this case is a perfect blend of fashion and durability. I am a very clumsy person so I demand a lot from my phone cases. This case has withstood many drops, falls, and tumbles and has shown no sign of damage. I like the fact that this case is not a hardshell, so I believe it absorbs shock better than its counterparts. Overall, I think that this case is fantastic, and I would definitely recommend it. I have been extremely happy with my purchase and if you buy this product, I know you will be too. …

does this protect the front and back of the iphone 5s from drops

Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.
Does it protect the front? Yes, more than Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.
Does it protect the front? Yes, more than the back. It has a raised bevel.
I had this case on my phone, and it fell from a height of about two-three feet, square on its back, onto a hardwood floor. It really wasn't a long hard fall at all, but a connector inside became partially dislodged, and only about a third of the touch screen worked. Also, the screen displayed weird lines and was distorted as a result of the fall.
I love this case, but buyer beware, if your phone falls flat on it's back, it's likely to get damaged. Apple DID cover this for me (thankfully) under Applecare, but I can't guarantee you'll be as lucky. I have had many drops before and after that incident, and never had any other issues.
The sides of this case are awesome, and make the case bounce like a bouncy ball when struck on it's side. Definitely does a good job dispersing the energy of a hard drop on a corner. Despite the one time it didn't save my phone, (I'm not sure what case could have) I love it. …
