    Do not buy this

    • Written by from Hubertus

    I dropped my phone once and a chunk of the cheap quality plastic flew off and dented my phone. It also gets dirty (on the inside) very easily and visual-wise it doesn't look anything special. And not to be negative but $30? Really? You can get a hardcore heavy duty metal case for $30 and it would be 10x better than this over-priced cheap plastic. Don't waste your money.

    Too slippery, worse than the phone without any case

    • Written by from Chicago

    It is a clear plastic case with no additional design that would make it less slippery. It certainly preserves the look of the iPhone but it just slides out of your hands! The phone without the case does not do that. If the point of the case was to protect the phone a bit, this case will actually result in greater likelihood of damage to the phone because it is certainly not a protective case but will cause more drops.

    Protects when i drop on hardwood floor and looks inconspicuous so great gold 5s colour is visible. Have not dropped on hard floor like tile/stone. No dust problems. No volume problems.

    Fragile and offers no protection

    • Written by from Shawnee

    I've always used cases as a sort of insurance policy to protect against the occasional mishap and I've never broken a screen going all the way back to the original iPhone. I was in a movie theater and this slick sided case allowed my phone to slideout of my pocket. At a distance less than 2' my phone screen cracked right up the middle.

    To top it off, the case fills with dust and because it's clear, you appear to have a dirty phone. I can't recommend that you stay away from this case enough. Do not buy this case.

    Alright case

    • Written by from CARBONDALE

    This case is fragile. It does not fit properly. Even though I did not drop it, the case near to camera is broken due to its cheap quality.

    No protection

    • Written by from Ottawa

    This case offers no real protection to the face of the phone. My 5 fell 2 feet and landed flat on the floor (face down) and the glass broke. Avoid this case.

    Inferior frosting used as compared to frosted Snap case for iPhone 4/4S

    • Written by from New York

    I liked the frosted version of this case that I used for a few years with my iPhone 4S, so I bought the iPhone 5 version of this case when I upgraded my phone. I liked the "grippiness" of the frosting on the 4S case. It was grippy enough to hold confidently but not so grippy as to make it awkward to get the phone out of my pocket.

    The frosting on the iPhone 5 version of this case not the same frosting Incase used on iPhone 4/4S case. The new frosting is like Teflon; it actually makes the phone feel slippery, even more so than the non-frosted cases. My phone keeps flying out of hands. I'm returning this case to Apple.

    I just ordered a leather Snap case directly from Incase's website. I'm hoping that it's "appropriately grippy".

    The case for people who don't want a case

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    This case is sturdy, and confidently 'snaps' on just like its name. For those who want to enjoy the design and look of their iPhone 5s while protecting it, this is a great case. The edges are smooth and the design allows full access to all the buttons and jacks.

    Beautiful but unreliable.

    • Written by from Portland

    I bought the clear snap Incase for my iPhone 5. I will admit I love the look, it is sleek and keeps the bottom from scratching. However, I accidentally dropped my phone a few feet, the case provided zero protection, and my phone screen shattered. I had to pay $150 to get the screen replaced in addition to $30 for a new, more reliable case. I give it two stars instead of one only because the case looks very nice, but be warned: if you want to buy this case, plan on never dropping your phone.

    Looks beautiful, fits well, feels great.

    • Written by from Toronto

    I got the clear Snap Case for my white iPhone 5. I think the iPhone design on its own is beautiful and wanted a case that wouldn't hide or interfere with it: something well made, sleek, clear, clean lines, with no ugly neon colours, not bulky, but also offer some basic scratch/bump protection. This case is exactly what I wanted: it looks amazing (especially nice with the white iPhone), fits well, feels great in the hand. Despite being smooth plastic with only a thin lip at the front, it seems to offer just enough grip. Have heard some say it is not as protective as other cases for drops, but typically I'm pretty careful with my iPhone. We'll see, but so far so good. At $29.99 in the Canadian Apple Store, it's a reasonable price (compared to many designer cases).

    I had an fairly sleek 2-piece hard plastic Incase case on my old iPhone3 and really liked it, and even without the rubber edges it protected against small drops (the case cracked a bit, but the iPhone was fine) so hope this one will be just as great as the last one.

    great look and good function!

    • Written by from Arlington

    I looked at both the clear incase and the adopted, and i think the incase fits the phone better, is a better design, and also looks better. i've had the case for about 4 months and have had 2 big drops and my phone is intact and working great! the first big drop cracked the corner of the case and the second big drop broke the corner off. I am replacing the case since now part of my phone is exposed. Although the case broke, it did a great job of protecting my phone and I think the clear streamlined design is worth the trade off for not being quite as durable as others. The case functions great and I highly recommend for showing off the white iPhone! I will purchase again.

    Didn't protect!

    • Written by

    I already had issues with this case when I realized every time I had the case on, people couldn't hear me as well. I wasn't using the case for a while since no one heard me. I finally decided to put the case back on, just my luck, my phone falls out of my purse and glass of my iphone 5 shatters onto the kitchen tile! So people couldn't hear me and it didn't protect my phone.

    Gorgeous case, but...

    • Written by from Turlock

    I bought this case about 2 weeks ago, I got what I was expecting, it is a gorgeous case that compliments the iPhone 5's new design very well! The case is very light weight, but still noticably heavier with the case on the iPhone, rather than not on. The case has generous openings for all the ports and buttons, you don't have to take off the case to place it on a deck or anything such like that. I truly only have 2 complaints about this case. 1. the case scratches very easily, somehow i've managed to scratch it a couple of times in only 2 weeks! 2. As for protection, I dought this case will save your iPhone 5 on a hard drop on the concrete, it is mainly for its looks! Overall I'm very happy with my purchase, at such a great price!

    I had this case for less then one month and the edges of the case started to break. For $30, I was hoping that can protect my phone better than that!

    Looks great but did not fit properly. :(

    • Written by from Columbia

    I had one corner that would bend away/back slightly. Looks great however, failed to fit properly. And you buy a case for it to fit properly. I immediately exchanged this case for the ADOPTED version. Check out ADOPTED brand of cases before making a purchase.

    Good case, but for you could get much more protection for a little more $

    • Written by from Washington

    I have both the Incase Snap Case in clear and the Speck Candyshell case in Pink for the iPhone 5. The Speck Candyshell case costs roughly $6 more (let's be honest: both are rip offs) but offers much, much more protection because of the rubberized interior.

    The Incase Snap Case offers slightly more protection than those cases that you can get for less than $5, but it has a few perks. The plastic is thicker and the case does rise slightly over the front of the phone to protect the screen from falls and dings. And, it does show off the phone, which is beautiful. It slides in and out of pockets and handbags easily. In sum, the Snap Case is a good case for those who do not drop their phones with great frequency.
