The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus may be the latest iPhones, but not everyone has jumped to the newer, larger models. If you’re using the iPhone 5 or 5S, then check out our recommendations for the best cases this Christmas.
We begin with a unique case, the Moshi SenseCover. This case has a one-of-a-kind plastic window and conductive strip, allowing you to see who’s calling – and answer the phone – without needing to open the flip cover. It also works for checking the time; always handy if you’re not wearing a watch. The case protects your screen, and adds decent protection to the back and sides from drops and scratches too.
4. enCharge Qi Wireless Charging Case - Black
The enCharge Qi Wireless Charging Case does just what it says on the tin, adding the convenience of wireless charging to your iPhone 5 or 5S. The case is quite slim, adding minimal bulk to your iPhone and keeping it nicely pocketable. Just pick up this case and a Qi charging pad and you’ll be golden.
Draco Design’s beautiful flowing designs have quickly made it one of the most popular cases on our site, and we’ve expanded our range to include eight colours. If you want to pick up an award-winning stylish case that still provides great grip and protection, then a Draco Design bumper is right for you.
2. Mophie 32GB Space Pack - Black, White
Another unique case is the Mophie Space Pack, which provides both additional battery power and additional storage to your iPhone 5S. This Space Pack adds 32GB, easily accessible using the Mophie app. This can be used to hold media like music or videos, freeing up space on your iPhone’s internal space. You also get 1700mAh of battery power, more than doubling your battery life!
1. Griffin Survivor Case - Black
Our winning case is a classic – the Griffin Survivor. This case is the most protective case available for the iPhone 5S, adding some bulk but also ensuring that your iPhone is near-invulnerable to drops, scratches, rain, dirt, snow and more. If you watch some of Griffin’s increasingly outrageous survival videos for this phone, then you’ll quickly see why so many people depend on the Survivor to keep their phones safe.

One of the coolest iPhone 5S / 5 cases ever is in stock now at Mobile Fun. The FLIR One Thermal Imaging Case adds a real, working thermal camera to your phone - just like the ones used by law enforcement and the military. This camera lets you see the heat energy that is produced by people, animals and machines, with hotter areas appearing a different colour or shade than colder areas.
There are two cameras on the back of the iPhone 5S case, a thermal one and a regular visible light camera; both are powered by an internal battery of 1400 mAh. The case attaches to the back of the phone, then an iPhone app actually lets you control the camera and flip between various imaging modes.
You can choose different colour palettes that let you see the scene most clearly; options include black-on-white, white-on-black, rainbow, contrast, arctic and more. You can capture still images and video files, and even get a temperature readout of objects in range with the iPhone app.
The FLIR One has a bevy of potential uses, too. You can spot people and animals lurking in the shadows; brilliant for safeguarding your garden or monitoring pest activity. It’s also good for hiking and camping, as you’ll be able to see people and animals clearly against the cold backdrop. You can even identify areas of heat loss, overloaded electrical circuits or wet leaks in ceilings, walls and floors.
Of course, aside from the practical benefits the FLIR One is just fun. You can use it to take unique photos, win hide-and-seek or just literally see how hot your significant other really is.
The FLIR One iPhone 5S / 5 Thermal Imaging Case is in stock now. For more information, please visit the product page linked above or leave a comment below. You can also reach us on Twitter @mobilefun and on Facebook at Love Your Mobile.

The iPhone 6 may be released, but if you don’t fancy a bigger phone then the iPhone 5S remains one of the best on the market. In this article, we’ll show you five of the best cases to have been released lately for the iPhone 5 and 5S.
Bling My Thing are well known for their slim plastic cases studded with Swarovski Elements, but recently they’ve expanded their range. One promising new case is the Infinity Dots case, which sets a grid of minute Swarovski Elements against a beautiful leather backdrop. The design here is top-notch, from the high quality Napa leather to the elegant threads and crystals on the front cover and useful internal pockets for cash and credit. This classy iPhone 5S case is available in brown / white and black / red colourways.
Now this case is cool. The Snapz case comes with 10 interchangeable silicone bands, letting you change the look of your case to suit your mood. This works particularly nicely with the black and white varieties of the case, while the other options provide more clashing combinations. The bands also serve a practical purpose, as you can use them as a strap to stop your phone from falling from your hands or attach your phone to nearby objects for hands-free operation. It’s a cool case idea that I haven’t seen before, and it’s well worth a look.
3. Griffin Survivor Slim Tough Case - Black
The Griffin Survivor is one of the very best protective cases for the iPhone 5S, and this new Slim version further refines that ideal. The Survivor Slim is made to US and UK military standards, with a tough silicone jacket and rigid polycarbonate shell teaming up to protect your iPhone. The case includes an ultra-responsive iPhone 5S screen protector, which is a nice bonus.
2. Uunique Heritage Wood & Linen Hard Shell Case - Brown, Black, White, Pink
This Uunique case lives up to its name with a novel wood and linen construction. The Heritage Series includes a number of awesome designs, but this split wood and linen combination is my favourite. The case is practical too, with an integrated viewing stand and a flip cover to protect your screen.
1. Otterbox Resurgence Power Case - Glacier, Black
Our final case comes from Otterbox and is called the Resurgence. It combines the protective design of Otterbox’s traditional iPhone cases with an integrated battery. That means you’ll get almost double the battery life, just by putting on this case. The extra battery life is ideal for long nights or weekends out, and quickly becomes worth the extra weight. The case also includes some nice extras like a front-facing LED battery display and auto-stop charging tech. It’s a great package that is one of the very best cases on the market for the iPhone 5 and 5S.

Earlier today we reported on OtterBox’s new line of Resurgence battery cases, but that’s not the only thing that the American phone accessories company announced today. OtterBox have unveiled Alpha Glass, a new series of tempered glass screen protectors. The initial release covers the Galaxy S5, iPhone 5, 5S and 5C, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see screen protectors for the iPhone 6 and other popular smartphones soon afterwards. Let’s take a closer look at what OtterBox have revealed so far.
Scratch and shatter protection
The primary purpose of any screen protector is to prevent damage to your phone’s screen. Of course, the Alpha Glass series provides just that. A thin layer of tempered glass covers the screen below, preventing any scratches or abrasions from damaging the display. The Alpha Glass screen protector also includes an anti-shatter film, ensuring that even if the glass breaks, it remains in a single inert piece to be safely removed.
Hardly noticeable once installed
OtterBox have delivered one of the thinnest tempered glass screen protectors on the market, with tiny proportions that are barely noticeable. With Alpha Glass installed, your phone also retains its original touch screen sensitivity, brightness and clarity. Even installation is a cinch, as the package comes with everything you need to install the screen protector cleanly and without bubbles. You don’t have to worry about a thing.

The OtterBox Alpha Glass screen protectors are coming soon to Mobile Fun. For more information–including live pricing and availability data–please visit the product pages listed below.

OtterBox have announced a new case for the iPhone 5 and 5S called the Resurgence. The Resurgence provides both military-standard drop protection and an integrated battery pack. That means you’ll get more than double the battery life while keeping your phone safe – not a bad combination!
Make your iPhone 5S last longer
The iPhone 5S comes with a 1560mAh internal battery, usually good for a day or two of moderate use. The OtterBox Resurgence adds another 2000mAh of battery power, more than doubling your iPhone’s total battery life to three or even four days.
That means your phone can endure more than 22 hours of web browsing, 24 hours of videos or even 24 hours of talk time… before it needs to be recharged.
The Resurgence battery case is simple to use, too, thanks to an easy-to-read battery indicator on the front of the case and systems which prevent over-charging.
Protect your iPhone 5S from drops and scratches
Of course, having a long-lasting iPhone 5S isn’t just about battery life. You also want your phone to survive the rigours of daily life, from minor scratches to more serious drops, knocks and falls. Thankfully the OtterBox Resurgence is well equipped to handle these challenges as well.
The two-piece OtterBox design provides comprehensive protection, with full coverage of your phone to prevent scratches and scrapes. The phone is also highly rated for drop protection, and has been certified with a MIL STD 810G rating.
Keep your iPhone 5S looking good
The OtterBox Resurgence belies its broad feature set with a surprisingly thin and light body. The case is among the least bulky battery cases on the market for the iPhone 5S. The Resurgence is available in two colours from Mobile Fun, black and white glacier.
