    Fantastic! Clear colour prone to yellowing though....

    • Written by from Port Moody

    Dropped my phone so many times, and not a single scratch or dent. I had the clear one for about a year, and it started to "yellow". I contacted the Tech21 support team, and complained. They sent me a brand new one, in blue, even though my warranty was like 2 months over. Great case, great service, highly recommend. (Yellowing will probably be way less obvious on a gold iPhone. Mine was white).

    Cannot say enough about this case.

    • Written by from Monterey

    I dropped my phone many times while it was wearing this case. It withstood every.thing. The other day I was on a ten-foot ladder and I dropped my phone. It landed facedown. It was probably the most defining moment of my life thus far. When I got off the ladder and picked it up there was not even a scratch. If I were the president I would give Tech21 an award for this case.

    I owned many cases but this one tops them all. Perfectly fits the phone and no dirt slips through. Nice low profile edges on the top and feels great in the hand. But it!

    Button Issues?

    • Written by from Pottstown

    All the reviews of praise are correct so I am going to go right into the issue that some have had. There have been some questions about the buttons (sleep, volume) being hard to push. I noticed this issue as well with the sleep button. You need to remove the case and reinstall from the top being sure to align the sleep button with the cases sleep button. This case fits so well that when it is in alignment you will have no regrets. You wouldn't just put on a screen protector would you? It's not a Hard case so to say. Take the extra 15 seconds to align the case with the phone for proper fit.

    Great protection!

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    I've had the case for over a year now with my iPhone 5. The only thing I could complain about is the clear parts of the case gets a slight yellow tint after some time. But that is to be expected. The protection for the phone is great! It's like the protection of an otter box without all the bulk. Pair this with a screen protector and you're golden!

    Amazing

    • Written by from mesa

    I've had this case for 1 month and it has saved me from two drops already. One drop on asphalt and another on concrete, both from waist high. Case is amazing. No sign of any problem. Also love the feel and grip of the case. Great purchase.

    Fantastic Case!!

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I've been known to buy way too many cases for my iPhone (Otterbox and Lifeproof included). I've been one of those people who changes their phone case every other day or so, and it came as a surprise to me that I've never really had the urge to replace the Tech21 case that's currently on my iPhone. Not only is it extremely protective, but it's a pleasure to use. Every time I pick my phone up, I love the way it feels in the hand. It's just fantastic. Not to mention that I've dropped my iPhone twice since I've had it, both on pavement, and there was nary a dent or scratch to be seen anywhere. If you're on the fence or debating at all whether or not to get this case, GET IT! You won't regret it. Besides, it's cool-looking.

    I underestimated this case at first, but after now I can tell that this case is better than the Otter Box that I had.

    satisfied

    • Written by from two harbors

    I have had this now for about 3 months on a 5 which has been dropped several times on various surfaces without damage to phone or case. But, I have never had a problem with damage to the phone with similar incidents with use of many other "middle of the line" cases either. Many of the prior cases did though sustain damage. My poor phone goes through a lot of abuse -frequents drops, stuffed into pockets, and dropped into mega purses with all sorts of hazardous objects. However with just this (and prior cases) and a glass screen protector it is still flawless. The case is attractive and provides fairly low profile protection and it does not tend to slip out of your hand like some of the hard surface cases. I agree with the concern about yellowing of the clear case but 3 months in and no problems so far either with yellowing or looking particularly "dirty" . And yes that flimsy looking bar at the bottom front of the case did look problematic but again it is tough and has not torn or deformed. Other reviewers have mentioned debris getting between the case and phone and causing problems with the finish on the back. The case fits snug but a small amount of ?dust? may get past the edges just like with most other cases other than the truly sealed/waterproof. Not any more or less than any other case I have ever used. If this is of concern apply a film on the back of the phone. Or, since the case is easily removed, just take off periodically and clean. Overall, it has turned out to be a better purchase than I thought it would be and that orange strip is so helpful for locating in the "black hole purse". Even if I do start to have some yellowing or changes in the clear plastic that are unsightly, the cost is reasonable enough to buy another while waiting for the 6 to arrive .

    LOVE this case

    • Written by from Wayne

    I just picked up this case today in blue . I have the white and silver 5s. It fits perfect and the blue on the white phone reminds me of tropical water. It just makes me happy. The phone still feels very slim in the case, it only adds a slight bit of length and height. The volume buttons and sleep/wake button in the case work perfectly. I've owned many cases over the years and this is my favorite. Highly recommend it.

    The case i was waiting for

    • Written by from Aubrey

    This is the case I was waiting for. I don't care for the bulk of a lot of the other cases but I wanted the protection they offer. This case offers just that. I have dropped my phones several times and had absolutely no damage. It allows me to enjoy the thin design of the phone and feel like I have a secure device. The only thing I don't like about it is the opening around the speaker and charging port, but make no mistake, the thin strip will not tear or break. You would have to cut it. It is extremely tough. Also I would like a wider choice of colors. I highly recommend this case.

    Love

    • Written by from San Antonio

    This case is great. I read the reviews and decided to give it a shot. It has a slim profile, and the sides are a little thick, but that wasn't a deal breaker for me. It doesn't make my screen protector peel, and orange is my fav color, so I went with the clear version. I'm one of those who is constantly switching out my cases because I get bored with them, but I think I'll hold on to this one for a while.

    One of the best cases ever for iPhone

    • Written by from Imperial Beach

    LOVE this case. It definitely protects well on drops. I've dropped my phone now 4 times on asphalt or cement and it doesn't bounce, it just 'hits' then 'lays down', so the absorption gel really works. And that is why I have a case. I have the clear one for a white/silver phone and am happy with the looks. I also have a thin screen protector (for key scratch prevention primarily,) and it works with the case easily. I love the gel protective technology they have developed and this case has minimal bulk but protects well because of it. Would absolutely buy again, my ONLY wish is that the gel came in a 'clear' version than the orange colored tint. But this case is by far BEST bang for the buck. I would have paid twice its cost, knowing what I know now, and believe it money well spent. (Watched my friend with a more expensive case that was 'gel-like' -but not this company's - drop her phone on cement. It bounced probably 4 times and in the process cracked the screen. Bouncing = damage, imo.)

    Excellent Case, best case I ever had.

    • Written by from Ypsilanti

    I rarely write reviews about products I purchase but I had to write about this one since is the best case I have ever had.
    at first I was not attracted to it because of the orange stripe on the sides but I gave it a try when I went to an apple store and I loved how well it actually looked on my iPhone. it feels very solid but gentle to the iPhone at the same time because of the rubber feel of the material. I would recommend this case to every one who wants to protect the iPhone without sacrificing the looks of the phone it really looks very modern and elegant at the same time and of course it stills protects the device.

    Favorite case of all

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    So far from iPhone 3 to 5s this is my favorite case. Much slimmer than things like Otterbox with the same feel of protection minus the water resistance. Slides in and out of pockets easily while still somehow being sticky enough to cling to counters and dashboards without sliding all over.

    Bottom line, phenomenal case and if for any reason it needs a replacement I'll definitely buy another!

    Very sleek and protective case

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    I purchased this case at the Apple Store in Grand Central Terminal in New York. Great case. Very minimal style and very protective. Its definitely an eye catcher and fits most USB cables. Definitely gonna purchased other colors of this case. (iam using the blue color) Thanks again Tech21.

    Good protection without the bulk

    • Written by from Nanaimo

    I've only had it a day, but nothing in stores compares to this. Good protection without a massive case. A lot of cases with adequate protection are so big they prevent you from touching the sides of the screen, but this case feels like the best balance of size vs. protection. Also, it feels a bit like vinyl so it grips to your hand and won't fall out like a lot of smooth cases. The materials used are flexible so the phone is easy to get out of the case, but not so flexible that it would stretch and deform like silicone.

    The only minor issue I had initially was the sharp edge on the bottom by the dock connector irritating my pinky with the way I held the phone. I had just upgraded from the shorter iPhone 4, but with the taller 5S, I have changed how I hold the phone anyways.

    Fantastic case and great protection

    • Written by from Silverton

    I bought this case as a replacement for an Otterbox Commuter case. I keep my phone in my pocket and yes, it does take a dive now and then. On two occasions the Otterbox definitely protected the phone, but in the process, broke a thin tab on the bottom corner. It was easily replaced both times, but what a pain in the rear.
    I bought the Tech 21 case with an ArmorSuit case friendly screen protector and what a difference. It has protected the phone from a couple substantial falls without an issue and is so much easier to remove when needed. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
