Got a new iphone and needed a good quality case to protect it. This was in my favourite colours, protects the phone well, is durable without being bulky. Just what I needed for my new phone. Would recommend

Tough but minimal grip
I would say for a non-wallet-type case this case gets 5/5 for actual protection of the phone. The silicone inner layer with the reinforced polycarbonate makes it pretty difficult for the phone to get damaged. The thin silicone layer on the inside of the plastic back gives the back of the phone good protection as well and not just at the sides.
However it has one main flaw that makes it difficult for me to use it. It is actually pretty slippery. The grip is virtually non-existent, so for clumsy people like me that would severely increase the risk of actually dropping the phone as it can so easily slip out of your hands!
The plastic, although smart-looking, is too smooth to hold properly and the silicone is both barely there (only for volume buttons and at the bottom is it not covered over by the plastic) but does nothing anyway to improve grip.
That being said, it provides really good protection if it does drop, but I would prefer not dropping it in the first place, especially since the screen is not covered.
Overall 3/5 as it has good protection and actually looks smart and playful at the same time! But I would be afraid to use it

Slim, two-piece design with enhanced impact resistance and shock dispersion
This dual-layered design beautifully balances the impact resistant polycarbonate hard shell with a shock-absorbing interior cushion. The accompanying flexible bumper provides a secure fit and sleek color contrast.
For active lifestyles - hiking, jogging or even playing sports
Designed for those who take their phone everywhere, whether that's on the train or up a mountain, the Case-Mate Tough Case is the ultimate in rugged protection. Combining a silicone inner layer with super-tough ABS plastic shell, this case will keep your phone going as long as you do.
Stylish textured finish looks good and adds grip
The Case-Mate Tough Case isn't just about protecting your mobile, it's also super stylish with a textured finish that gives your phone a unique look. This finish also helps improve grip so you're less likely to drop your iPhone 5 in the first place, and resists fingerprints so your case will look newer for longer.
Enhanced dust-proof protection to controls
Protection against drops and scrapes is great, but if your phone is prone to dust and dirt getting inside then it will eventually suffer internal damage that can be costly to repair. The Case-Mate Tough Case however features dust-proof protection to the buttons around the sides, which helps reduce the risk of damage.
Complete access to all ports and buttons
Although this case offers ultimate protection from scrapes and drops, it doesn't compromise on usability to do so. All buttons, cameras, speakers and ports of the iPhone 5 are readily accessible, so you'll never have to take the case off to use your phone.
