Having owned this case for 9 months now I have to say I'm not that pleased with it. Fine it protects the phone from bumps and scratches (on the phone body) but visually it seems to have yellowed and it's a dirt trap, which because it's clear makes the phone look dirty.

If you're thinking about buying this case then I would recommend not going for a clear case. For protecting the phone it's fine but aesthetically it leaves much to be desired after a few months.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 16 February 2015
This case is very similar to other clear cases in the sense that your phone starts to look very dirty after not too long. The case tends to go a yellow colour inside after not too long and it looks rather unsightly. The concept of a clear case is good, but it usually ends out looking very dirty. I would recommend going for a similar case with black or another colour on the sides, which AmazonBasics make. I still give this case three stars because it does the same thing as cases which are £10-£15 at a fraction of the cost, so overall it's okay. If you are willing to clean your phone case regularly then it is probably fine, but otherwise this will start to look very mucky after just a few weeks of usage.

The clear case is good and fits very nicely around the iphone without making it look bulky. The screen protector unfortunately is not good. when the iphone is turned on, it looks fine and is cut well. When the iphone is off/ screen is black you can see this horrible effect caused by the screen protector.

get what your pay for and dont expect a lot of protection. I bought it as at the time there were no other iPhone5 cases.
However, I have since updated the case and this one never sees the light of day.
Cheap and cheerful.

If you have just bought a new iPhone and want to protect your new baby this is for you!

Amazon Basics provides a light, protective and easy to fit product.

The only additional comment I would put are that the product will scratch over time and that is quite visible around the plastic. The second is that I found that my screen protector bubbled up quite a bit and in the end I threw it out without applying it. So if these two are important to you , I'd skip and buy another product.

If you're after something really basic and easy then this is for you.

The cover is OK (although you lose the "feel" of the volume or off buttons through the cover). The screen protector lasted about a day - the edge of the case seemed to catch on the edge of the protector and it started to peel off. For the money its OK - but previous translucent cases have looked and felt better (but as they were not TPU, they tended to scratch). You pays your money, you takes your choice...

AmazonBasics scores again. Does the job. No frills. No rip-off profit margins. Snug-fitting case allows your iPhone 5 to remain true to its lean and light look and feel. I can only comment on how it looks on the white model. Allows it to shine through. Can only imagine it should allow the black model to shine through too without taking away any of the detail of the back.

Yes the screen protector is one of those ones where your iPhone needs to be surgically clean and dust/hair free. Any particles at all and they'll create an air bubble that won't move. You can try washing it and air dying in the hopes of getting the particles away but usually it's a lost cause. Don't cry about it because you're paying for the case really. The protector is just a nice-to-have extra. Some people just have the knack of getting these things on without a problem. Others will fail. I'm a failure at it. Had three air bubbles and I could see the little particles. Tried to get rid of them and ended up with dozens more. Waiting for it to air dry to try again but to be honest I'll be perfectly happy without it. If you've seen the video on YouTube where they drop the iPhone 5 from great heights you'll have seen that the screen is pretty resistant to high impacts. The screen protector probably isn't necessary.

I kept it on for 2 weeks and got annoyed by:
- Bulkiness: The iPhone 5 is nice and sleek and this case makes it look big and ugly.
- The on button is hidden behind the thcikness of the case and makes it difficult to switch on.
I won't use it again.

There's not a huge amount I can say. Very cheap, protects from scratches and minor dings, which was what I was aiming for and generally does the job. I'd pay a few more quid for it but it is what it is, and that's a good thing!
