First of all I love the style of this case, it was exactly what I was looking for when I bought my new 5.. With that said, you would expect the case to protect at least a little on the hot pink "rubber" parts, it doesn't. I recently dropped my phone with a less than 1' fall. It did hit a metal bar directly on the pink edge and I didn't see any cracks on the screen so I thought I was good- sadly I just removed the case to clean it and found a huge chip in the bezel. Obviously I'm not a psychic so I don't know if the case was better than having nothing but I find it hard to believe the case really avoided any damage based on the huge chip I now have. Plus side the case completely hides the chip. Downside the case gets really dirty pretty quickly and washing doesn't remove the dirt :(
This is a very poor case that has no grip & no access to the volume buttons

I am very unhappy with this case. Save your money. If you want to access your volume buttons or was tackiness, this is NOT for you. It is cheapest case for the price I have ever seen. This is the quality of some knock plastic case. I am surprised Apple even sells this.
