    Best clear case ever

    • Written by from Lincoln

    I have had exclusively iPhones since the 3GS and I have had TONS of different cases. Since my first one, my case philosophy has evolved. I started off being all about the otterboxes and such that were bullet proof because of the confidence factor it provided. But me personally I take pretty good care of my phone and it began to feel cumbersome and sometimes flat-out degraded the incredible design and functionality that the apple engineers put so much work into.

    So, started scaling back the cases to just an apple bumper and bought insurance instead.

    By the time I got my iPhone 5, I had made up my mind that I wasn't even going to have a case because the phone just feel so incredible in your hand.

    Fast forward a few weeks, and I was at the apple store buying a case for my wife and I ended up unboxing and trying on EVERY SINGLE case they had in store just to see if I could find something I could stand to use. I'll admit there were a few that had cool ideas but the quality of materials and fit was terrible on all cases (even on the expensive ones). The one beaming exception was the Adopted cases. They may not look that different from the cheaper options but I can attest to the incredible workmanship they have. I ended up buying this clear one for myself, and the white leather/gold one for my wife. Both cases are awesome and bring so much class to the phone without in anyway impeding the apple designers’ intent or functionality of the phone. If you’re like me and were considering not using a case at all or just looking for a quality sleek case I highly recommend this case. Its head and shoulders above all others, its worth the money.

    A case that provides Fantastic Protection while not hiding the beauty

    • Written by from Owens Cross Roads

    I bought this case today for my iPhone 5. I've recently used a otterbox which was too bulky and a Speck Candyshell which didn't allow me to show off my phone. I love the ADOPTED Lens Case for iPhone 5. It was between this case and the incase snap case. After looking at both cases I chose this one because the plastic is a little more solid and a little teeny tiny bit thicker then the incase (in a good way) and it seems like it will provide more protection. I love that its clear so I don't have to hide the beauty of my phone. After looking at reviews and actually trying the cases on in the Apple store I am very satisfied with my choice.

    Fantastic Case!

    • Written by from Monroe

    Really, really nice. I love the low, sturdy profile and feel. I was wondering if the face-down screen protection would be good and it is, with the bezel area raised slightly and nicely curved. Overall, I chose this one for noticeable quality differentiators compared with others on the shelf. Love it and my iPhone 5! They’re perfect together.

    Better fitting than INCASE's case!

    • Written by from Columbia

    This case fit my iPhone 5 perfectly! Perfect for those minimalist case users looking to enjoy looking at and/or show off their iPhone 5. May seem a little prone to scratches however, too early to tell.

    Feels great in pocket! My only concern is the slim piece of plastic that covers the volume buttons and vibrate on/off switch as this may break off in the future. But at $30 it's a great bargain!

    From a previous INCASE user this come highly recommended!

    Best phone case I've ever owned.

    • Written by from Herndon

    If you're looking for a low-profile case for your iPhone, this is the one to get. Very well constructed and fairly durable compared to other similar cases I've tried.

    Awesome case!

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I bought this case to replace another case I bought off of Amazon. So happy I went with the Adopted Lens Case. It really looks amazing and doesn't take away from the design of the phone at all. The case also feels so nice in your hand. Overall, a very sleek, chic iphone case; highly recommended!

    Breaks easily

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    This case is a waste of money. Breaks far too easily after only one or two drops. Plastic becomes brittle and doesn't hold up. After only a month of use it scratches covered the back and it looks like garbage. Wouldn't recommend.

    breaks quickly and easily

    • Written by from simi valley

    1st one i bought, case edges broke off and edge above the camera snapped. that was after 2 weeks. Bought another one, same thing happened...2 weeks later. i have to keep pushing the case on the phone to secure the tightness. way too expensive for this behavior. i wish it was durable because i love the feel and design. oh well. the hunt continues.

    Poorly made

    • Written by from Great Neck

    Very nice case but cracked in less than a month and not from dropping it. It's poorly made and another overpriced case I'm afraid.

    Nice case, but

    • Written by from Port Washington

    Very attractive and seems well made. Good case for someone who is careful with their phone and wants something thin and light. However, it is a fingerprint magnet and is a bit tricky to install and remove. You need to lift up on the sides to make sure that the case extends over the edge of the phone. Otherwise, it doesn't provide protection for the screen. To remove, the company recommends lifting the edge while pressing against the opening on the rear of the case.

    Very slim case

    • Written by from hewlett

    If your looking for a very slim case that will not interfere with the look of the phone you will be extremely satisfied. The products seems and feels of high quality. The only issue i have with the case is that is gets dirty with fingerprints very easily and also appears that it can get scratched relatively easily.

    One aesthetic objection

    • Written by from New York

    The case is clear except for a black border around the camera opening. This seems anomalous (unless I'm missing something) and distracting.
    It in no way detracts from the the overall satisfaction I (or others) have with the case.

    Find another case

    • Written by from Powell

    The Good:
    Out of the box, the case fit snuggly and the clear case allows (most of) Apple's design to show through.

    The Bad:
    After 6 months of use, I have stress cracks and the case no longer fits snuggly. If you're proud to show off that you're case is MADE IN CHINA, this is the case for you (called out on the side of case.)

    I bought this case in January and as of July, I have 5 stress cracks in all the corners. As a result, the case is no longer snug and I don't anticipate it lasting much longer. I treat my phone with kids gloves and even I was surprised that this $30 case couldn't stand up to absolutely no physical strain.

    My next challenge is dealing with the warranty.

    Waste of $30

    • Written by from Anacortes

    I am panning on bringing my case back to apple. I noticed the day after I bought it, that it is already warped at the edges and the corners. The corner areas are bent, so that the case is not securely on my phone, and not securely covering it. I cant believe this basic case cost $30, and its already breaking. Definitely not worth the money.

    Looks and feels great

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I like the material of this hard case. Snug fit, sleek and slim, yet provides a nice gripping surface.

    This case may not provide maximum protection, but I don't think it's designed to. I originally got one of those thicker, rubbery cases but found it to be too bulky and unattractive for such a beautifully designed phone.

    The case showcases the iPhone 5 very well. I have the white iPhone and the smokey gray case. Looks great. The apple logo appears discreetly through the case. I've had it about a week now and don't see a single scratch on the case yet.

    Fell and Broke My Front Tooth But Didn't Break My iPhone

    • Written by from Bayside

    While running to work this morning, I tripped on an elevated sidewalk edge and went flying. My iPhone, which was in my hand, fell as well and then slid about 6 feet along the sidewalk in front of me. I broke my front tooth but my iPhone, protected with the sleek, clear lens case, was fine. The case didn't break but the back (phew, good thing it wasn't the front because I did not have a film on it) had serious scrape marks. So, I'm online now purchasing another one. The case is awesome. It is inconspicuous to reveal the beauty of the phone, yet super strong.

    Good clear case to show off iphone

    • Written by from Kailua

    Was looking for a clear case to show off my new iphone 5s champagne backing. Only had it for a few days but I am very impressed.

    Pros:
    Fits very well
    Feels very good in the hand. Easier to hold the iphone than without a case
    Light - does not add weight to the phone at all
    Easy access to all buttons and ports
    Shows off the backing of iphone, as well as side of phone

    Cons:
    Slippery - when holding it, sometimes feel like it might slip out of my hand. Wish there was some rubber to make it feel more stable
    Plastic might, in time, start to scratch
    Not a drop protective case

    So far im impressed with this simple, light case. If looking to show off iphone and a case that will make your iphone feel comfortable in your hands, i highly recommend this one.
