I'm very particular when it comes to choosing my device protection and I'm always looking for something that's both functional and fashionable. This case is exactly that; the slim black bumper protects the sides whilst the clear back shields any bumps or scrapes, all whilst leaving the design of the iPhone 5 crystal clear for all to see. Combined with the white or black model of the iPhone this case is a top top purchase.
N.B. have tried to clean it to no avail.
The case is well made and shows off the slim and sleek iPhone 5. The rubberised sides give an all important protection o the sides of the phone and they form a lip a couple of millimetres high which gives some protection to the front glass. The back get protection from scratches by the clear plastic but this in turn gets scratched.
If you are someone who is careful with their phone, then this is a great case. Consider buying a screen protector as there isn't one included. If (like me) you tend to give your phone harder treatment, go for something which will not show the knocks. I've only had mine a week and the white sides are grubby and the back is looking scratched!
good fit - doesn't hide the beauty of the iPhone too much - doesn't hinder use of volume controls etc - if you're like me and often have dry hands, the bumper improves the grip.
The bad: had it less than 2 weeks and the plastic back has developed kind of frosty patches and numerous abrasions... on the inside!! Not sure how this has happened as the phone has only been out of the case a couple of times for a quick buff-up using Mobile Fun's cleaning cloth. Consequently, the loveliness of the back of the iPhone 5 is now marred by, what appears to be, a cheap plastic cover. £15.95 is starting to look like a lot of money for bit of nasty plastic!
In conclusion, if all you're bothered about is covering the back and sides of your phone, this will do the job. If you want something that compliments the aesthetic appeal of the iPhone 5, keep looking!
My only fear is what condition the sides would look like which are anodised after long term use.
This does case does it all the sides of the phone are protected by a soft rubber case and the back of the phone protected by the clear plastic shell allowing the rear of the phone to still be seen
Only slight down side is the cut out for the camera is a bit large but otherwise this is a great case for the money
The fit is perfect, the rubber edge actually enhances the feel of the phone and the clear plastic panel will mean no nasty scratches when it's in your pocket or on a tabletop.
