Smooth contours, grippy yet easy to pull from pocket, slick looks & D3O!!!
This is a really nice well made case. I ordered it on a whim as I prefer to not use a case with my iPhones, but the iPhone 5 is su This is a really nice well made case. I ordered it on a whim as I prefer to not use a case with my iPhones, but the iPhone 5 is such a jewel and so slippery. I have the black phone and the smoke color case and they look slick together. It is not really mesh, but a texture that is within the smooth semitransparent back. It has a shape that is comfortable to hold and very slim (perfect for someone who doesn't want a case but needs one). I ride off road motorcycles and my body armor is made of D3O material. This stuff is unreal. It's amazing impact absorbing properties is hard to realize examining this case, but my experience with this stuff in my body armor makes me very comfortable with the idea of dropping my phone. …

Great iPhone Case
Before Tech21 was even in Apple Stores, I purchased the impact case for my iPhone 4 several months ago. It has a great feel in you Before Tech21 was even in Apple Stores, I purchased the impact case for my iPhone 4 several months ago. It has a great feel in your hand, fits the phone well, and the phone remains intact (good protection). Then I got an iPhone 5, gave my case to my dad, and bought 2 more (one for my mom). The iPhone 5 case is even better. It is slimmer and offers the same protection. The only weakness is on the bottom where material becomes thin to allow access across the speaker, lightning port, and headphone port. However, it doesn't harm the structural integrity of the case because the corners are strong. I would recommend to anyone. …

Not a iPhone Case fan, but this was an exception.
I've had my iPhone 5S for about 8 months now, I never had a case on it because I'm one of those people who hold onto their phones I've had my iPhone 5S for about 8 months now, I never had a case on it because I'm one of those people who hold onto their phones constantly and the only time I put it away/down is in my pocket or on a soft surface. I am heading to New England for a few weeks and I decided that if I was going somewhere that I'd have the potential of breaking my phone, on vacation would be the place. Mind you, I hate cases, my old iPhone 4S didn't have a case until a year and half later and then the case and phone broke together. I went to Best Buy to buy this Tech21 case, I planned on getting one of those Naked Tough cases that are clear but they were out of stock. My friend has the Tech21 case and so did the man selling me this case, both of them demonstrated how durable they were by throwing them toward the hard flooring full force. Nothing happened, so I was convinced. My only worry was the sticky buttons, which in time I'll get used to pushing them harder so no worries. I also wanted a screen protector, I've read reviews on here complaining how the screen protector pops off or doesn't fit with the case. Well my recommendation is buy this iPhone case for $35, then buy Zagg InvisibleShield HD for about $25 and you're set. …

If I took the time to rate this product, you know it's gotta be the best phone case I've ever bought in my life. After shattering If I took the time to rate this product, you know it's gotta be the best phone case I've ever bought in my life. After shattering my phone, I replaced my iPhone 5 and bought this case because it was recommend to me at the apple store. A year later, and my phone is still safe and sound. I drop my it multiple times each day and not a crack. It's well worth the $30. I'll never buy another brand of phone case again. …

does this protect the front and back of the iphone 5s from drops
- Asked by Lupe Y from Winston Salem
- Mar 12, 2014
Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.
Does it protect the front? Yes, more than Does it protect the back? From drops, no. Scratches, yes.
Does it protect the front? Yes, more than the back. It has a raised bevel.
I had this case on my phone, and it fell from a height of about two-three feet, square on its back, onto a hardwood floor. It really wasn't a long hard fall at all, but a connector inside became partially dislodged, and only about a third of the touch screen worked. Also, the screen displayed weird lines and was distorted as a result of the fall.
I love this case, but buyer beware, if your phone falls flat on it's back, it's likely to get damaged. Apple DID cover this for me (thankfully) under Applecare, but I can't guarantee you'll be as lucky. I have had many drops before and after that incident, and never had any other issues.
The sides of this case are awesome, and make the case bounce like a bouncy ball when struck on it's side. Definitely does a good job dispersing the energy of a hard drop on a corner. Despite the one time it didn't save my phone, (I'm not sure what case could have) I love it. …
