nice case, not at all bulky

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 also got the pink one, but I may be back for another color later on. …

Great durable case!

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. …

Screen smashed first time phone dropped
I've never had a case on an iPhone before, and figured i'd been pushing my luck since I frequently drop my phone (I wish I didn't, I've never had a case on an iPhone before, and figured i'd been pushing my luck since I frequently drop my phone (I wish I didn't, but it happens. . .). I like the look of the Tech21 case and enjoy that it doesn't make the phone bulky. However, the first time I dropped my phone in the case the screen shattered. The phone fell almost perfectly flat face down onto the floor, and it seems, looking at the case, that it should have been protected (the case does not include a screen cover, however the outer edge is raised so that if you lay your phone face down the edge of the case touches the ground rather than the phone). In a perfect world I'd never drop my phone, but it happens and thus I purchased this case to protect my treasured iPhone 5. In my experience, this case did not help at all and frankly I'm thinking about going back to no case when I get the screen fixed. …

Best case for iphone 5
I got this case about 2 weeks ago and I love it. Also love the color. It feels nice to hold yet it's not slippery (like my old S I got this case about 2 weeks ago and I love it. Also love the color. It feels nice to hold yet it's not slippery (like my old Speck candy shell which I constantly dropped). Even though its a soft shell case, it gives great protection for my phone and I have already dropped it once without a single scratch. It doesn't add any bulk and looks great on my white phone. Highly recommended! …

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. …
