Style Name: Tough BlackSize: Apple iPhone 5/5s Verified Purchase
This is the second case I've bought for the iPhone 5 following my recent purchase of the Snugg iPhone 5 Case / The New iPhone Case - Snugg Squared_ Skinny Fit Protective Case Cover- Superior Quality, Non Slip Material, High Protective, Lightweight Case - Lifetime Guarantee (Black) - for Apple iPhone 5/The New iPhone - From Snugg, The Creato..., which I found to be a very poor product.

The Case Mate comes in two parts, the first is a rubber bumper that fits snugly (no pun intended) around the edges of the phone. There are protective 'bumps' for the power button at the top of the phone and the volume controls, and you don't require any extra force to operate those buttons with the bumper on. There are openings for the silent switch, audio jack and lightening power cable, and an opening on the rear of the case for the camera. Once you've put the bumper on, the phone+bumper slot neatly into a hard protective case, which provides solid protection to the rear and the sides of the phone. The case+bumper combo means that there is a small raised ridge around the front of the phone, which will come in handy in protecting the screen when placed face-down on a surface. It takes less than two minutes to take the case out of the box and set up on your phone.

I disagree with the reviewer who has said this case adds too much bulk and weight to the phone - most decent cases will add some bulk and a little weight. In this instance, I would say the bulk/weight issue is minimal and are far out-weighed by the protection the case offers. We're talking a few grams of extra weight and an extra couple of mm of "bulk".

Style Name: Tough BlackSize: Apple iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus
This arrived ahead of my iPhone 6+ and I wanted a strong case after recent reports of bendy iPhones etc.

It is a strong case. The rim at the front sticks out above the screen to offer protection there, but not uncomfortably.
It is a fairly stiff case. Pretty good coverage at the bottom too, where the ports are (something I often find missing on other cases). The buttons work well and it looks smart. I find it doesn't add too much bulk to the phone either.

Style Name: Barely There BlackSize: Apple iPhone 5/5s
Having owned a number of Casemate cases for previous iPhones, I can say that this case lives up to the high standard of the earlier models. Obviously made with advance info on the iPhone 5's form factor, the case fits perfectly and offers protection to back and sides.

The case has pronounced lipped edges to the face as had the previous case for the 4S so as to provide protection to the face if the iPhone is laid face down. Down to personal choice if you like this or not. I like it for, even if you add a screen protector as I do, you want to avoid scratching of the protector or worse. If you want the thinnest possible case/ phone combo, this might not however be your first choice.

UPDATE- Having had the opportunity to test other iPhone 5 cases that have now become available, if you want a minimum thickness case , the excellent Terrapin iPhone 5 TPU Gel Skin Case / Cover (Solid Black) offers similar protection to the Casemate but smaller lipped edges and the latest Incipio Incipio Feather Case for iPhone 5 - Obsidian Black offers the smallest, almost non existent , lipped edges. Be warned however that the Incipio case, at least with early models, suffered from premature wear.

Worth noting that the iPhone 5 has already received some comments re susceptibility for scratching of the finish to the aluminium back and sides. This Casemate case protects these vulnerable areas whilst still keeping overall bulk and weight within reasonable limits. The case's finish has a quality soft touch feel and is pleasing to hold.

Highly recommend if you like the pronounced lipped edges...add a screen protector and your iPhone is well protected against light impact/normal use.

Style Name: Tough BlackSize: Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Verified Purchase
High-quality and stylish. Does not make the phone bulky. Has all the right holes an openings. I really like the silver buttons that are mechanical and easy to press.
I always feel that covering a stylish phone with a case is a sacrifice in the name of increased durability. Not in this case (pun not intended)! This case does the phone justice!

Style Name: Barely There BlackSize: Apple iPhone 6/6s Verified Purchase
I previously owned the equivalent of this case for the iPhone 5S and loved it. This version has the same soft touch plastic which results in a good grip on the device. The case is incredibly slim and adds almost no extra bulk to the phone.

A couple of negatives that were deal breakers for me:

1) I didn't like the cutout for the Apple logo and was curious as to why they added it, I think I know why which leads me on to ...

2) Due to the curved edges of the iPhone 6 the edges of the case also have to curve around the phone to sufficiently secure the case. However this makes it incredibly hard to remove the phone as there is not a lot of flex in the case itself. The cutout on the back appears to be there so that you can push the back of the phone whilst trying to bend the edges of the case with your other hand to try and get it out! This also resulted in the volume and power buttons of the phone getting a serious mashing at the same time as the edges of the case rakes over them.

At the end of the day I felt that this would ultimately damage the edges of the phone, or the buttons. In fact you may even wish bending the phone by accident. If however you plan to keep the case on long term and never remove it then its very sturdy and light.
