Best Minimalist Case Out There
This is easily the best iPhone case(for any series) I have ever owned!
When I snapped it on, I was amazed at how it almost dis This is easily the best iPhone case(for any series) I have ever owned!
When I snapped it on, I was amazed at how it almost disappeared into the phone as if it was a part of it. If you like minimalist cases, this one will blow you away. Evutec has managed to make a case that allows you to feel the iPhone as the sleek device it is all while taking away that fragile, vulnerable feeling it has when left unprotected. The material is smooth and doesn't collect fingerprints(a pet peeve of mine). I love the way it feels when I hold the phone.
I can think of no negatives as of yet. And given the strong material it's made out of, and the fact that it is little more than your generic iphone cases, you can't go wrong! …

This Case Is Amazing!
The Karbon S Case Is Awesome… Simply Put! I Usually Use An Otterbox Defender For My iPhones, But Since I Never Drop My iPhone I De The Karbon S Case Is Awesome… Simply Put! I Usually Use An Otterbox Defender For My iPhones, But Since I Never Drop My iPhone I Decided I Would Give A Slider Case A Shot. I Usually Don't Care For Any Type Of Slider/Snap Case(s) But This One Is Built So Well, It Would Surprise Anyone. Its Light As A Feather, Thin As It Gets, And Near Impossible For Your Phone To Accidentally Come Out. Also, For Those Wondering, This Case Is Screen Protector "Safe" With Glass And Plastic Protectors. I Will Highly Recommend This Karbon S Case And The Wood Variant. …

I prefer the minimalist approach to cases and have tried several different brands. Most have been a disappointment and either dev I prefer the minimalist approach to cases and have tried several different brands. Most have been a disappointment and either developed cracks or had coatings that scratched easily or started to peel. I checked out the Evutec Karbon S and what a breath of fresh air! Absolutely thin and light but it is tough as nails and offers good protection even for a thin case.
I finally got a chance to try it's protection capabilities yesterday as I watched my 5s in slow motion falling towards a concrete sidewalk. Not a single dent or scratch on my phone after the impact! Scuffed some of the corners up a bit on the Karbon S but that was it. I didn't think it was possible to have any "real" protection from a case this thin but boy was I wrong.
The case is actual carbon fibre so the colour goes right through (no coatings to peel off) and it has an ever so slightly rubberized surface that exponentially improves the grip on my 5s without adding any bulk. As previously mentioned, when my phone hit the ground the corners scuffed a bit and turned a little grey from the exposed carbon fibre (and imbedded concrete dust) but a black sharpie fixed that good as new.
I'm so pleased with this case that I'm now patiently waiting on their new version for the iPad Mini Retina which Evutek says is coming shortly. If you appreciate the minimal approach to cases but still want some protection, this one is a no brainer. Cheers! …

Looks nice but poor fit and slippery!
When I first saw this case in the Apple Store I was impressed. The carbon-fiber pattern is gorgeous and the case weighs almost not When I first saw this case in the Apple Store I was impressed. The carbon-fiber pattern is gorgeous and the case weighs almost nothing. I normally prefer something a little more protective, but I recently bought a speaker with lightning dock and I have been on a mission to find a good minimalist case with an open bottom to allow docking. This case works great with the dock, and I'm sure the woven Kevlar fibers offer better protection than a simple poly carbonate or plastic clip-on case. Unfortunately this case has two fatal flaws...first the one I got fits rather loose. The phone can actually slide a millimeter or so up and down the case lengthwise which annoys me no end. Looking at other reviews, it seems that some fit perfectly and others are loose. Such variance should be unacceptable to a case manufacturer. I shouldn't have the "try on" several cases at the store to find one that fits. Incidentally, it fits the same on both my personal iPhone 5 as well as my work 5S. Second, while the material feels great in the hand it is extremely slippery. I'm not sure how anyone could consider it "grippy". It's smooth as silk and if I'm not gripping it tightly, it pretty much just oozes out of my fingers. Sadly, as cool as this case is it's going back. …
