Purchased this case when I ordered the new iPhone 5c. Had the phone a week and was dropped from about 2 feet onto pavement and broke the screen. The phone even landed flat on its back. I realize these are delicate devices, but these cases do not absorb much of the impact and protect the device. I believe these cases will only help with minor scratches on the back of the cases. Learned a hard lesson after taking the phone to the Apple Store and paying $265 for a replacement.
