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!

beautiful, but terrible quality control
I bought this at a local Apple store, and had to open up 5 different boxes to find a unit that didn't have jagged, lumpy, or wavy I bought this at a local Apple store, and had to open up 5 different boxes to find a unit that didn't have jagged, lumpy, or wavy edges. I finally did find one and bought it, but even this one has two small bumps on the back panel. Surely for this price we should be able to find a higher rate of better quality specimens... …

Beautiful design but it lasted one day before the corner broke.
This case looks and feels beautiful, but it only lasted a day before a corner bent and the Kevlar fibres became frayed. This happe This case looks and feels beautiful, but it only lasted a day before a corner bent and the Kevlar fibres became frayed. This happened while simply taking it out of my pocket - not acceptable. The corner where the case rounds out to the bottom is where the Kevlar fibres are now exposed and frayed. Kevlar is a great material, just not good for a phone case in my opinion. The fit was snug but a little loose around the corners because the Kevlar flexes. Another reason why Kevlar is not good for a case. I believe something stiff should be used. If exotic materials are Evutec's focus, carbon fibre might be better suited because it is stiff. Because of this stiffness, the corner of the case might not have been damaged. This case is going back because it isn't durable enough to go in and out of my pocket. …

I have just received a iPhone 5C. I assume this case will fit the phone.
- Asked by Diane H from Corndale
- Aug 13, 2014
No, the iPhone 5C is thicker and rounder than the iPhone 5/5S so cases are not cross-compatible.
