This thing is fantastic!
I purchased this for my iPhone 5. I really don't like those cases that wrap around the front of the phone but this one does a goo I purchased this for my iPhone 5. I really don't like those cases that wrap around the front of the phone but this one does a good job of minimizing that. Also I would say its comparable to otter box protection without the bulk. Great purchase. I hope they come out with other colors. …

I Love this case. It keeps the thinness of the iPhone 5. The side bumper shock absorber works. I've dropped my iPhone a few times I Love this case. It keeps the thinness of the iPhone 5. The side bumper shock absorber works. I've dropped my iPhone a few times up to 4 feet high & the side bumper protected it perfectly. It is clear at front & back, so it still shows the beauty of your iPhone. Pair it with a Zagg skin protector & your iPhone 5 will be fully protected while showing off it's natural size & beauty! :) …

Best Case Ever
great protection, minimal bulk.
- Written by Thomas S from Coronado
I used this case for a month or so before switching to something different.
I liked its shock resistance and overall protection I used this case for a month or so before switching to something different.
I liked its shock resistance and overall protection without much added bulk. Some things I didn't like, which are completely subjective, are the color combinations. I wasn't a huge fan of the orange and other neon colors. Also, due to the nature of the material, the volume and sleeps buttons become much less responsive and are rather difficult to press. I went with the clear case on a black phone, and I thought it made for a very attractive combination. The black aluminum looked gray through the case, which was very similar to the iPhone 5S Space Gray.
Some things to watch out for: It appears that the case was reengineered some time during its life cycle, but the part numbers stayed the same. There used to be a lot of droop in the case around the charging port/home button. The later models came with structural reinforcements that completely eliminated this problem. …

All the reviews of praise are correct so I am going to go right into the issue that some have had. There have been some questions All the reviews of praise are correct so I am going to go right into the issue that some have had. There have been some questions about the buttons (sleep, volume) being hard to push. I noticed this issue as well with the sleep button. You need to remove the case and reinstall from the top being sure to align the sleep button with the cases sleep button. This case fits so well that when it is in alignment you will have no regrets. You wouldn't just put on a screen protector would you? It's not a Hard case so to say. Take the extra 15 seconds to align the case with the phone for proper fit. …

How does this case look with the gold iPhone 5S?
- Asked by Andrew C from East Providence
- Sep 29, 2013
Gorgeous, in this color. I was shocked at how different the case looked in the package compared to Gorgeous, in this color. I was shocked at how different the case looked in the package compared to on my gold 5s. The mini dot pattern on the back (protection inside the case) is tasteful and accentuates the gold back. Over the Apple logo, the dots reflect the metallic logo, giving it dimension -- so it stands out. I almost didn't buy it, because I didn't like the orange protective banding inside the case (D3O military-grade impact protection). But on the phone, it is barely noticeable and -- to the extent that you can see it -- adds texture to the brown color. Similar to how wood grain has deeper and lighter "shades". The case adequately covers the front edge. It is raised to prevent scratching the face, while allowing adequate space for a protective shield (without lifting the edges), if you want one. The phone does not appear or feel bulky with this case. It's the closest to "no cover" + good protection that I have used; and I've used 20+ cases over the years, including high-protection grade cases like Otterbox, etc. …
