4.0 out of 5 stars Good case (update - ok case), 8 Dec 2013

This review is from: Anker® iPhone 5S 5 Case for Apple iPhone 5 5S - Ultra Slim Fit 0.9mm with 2-in-1 Combo Protection of most Durable Case Materials: Flexible Matte TPU Body & Protective PC Frame - Retail Packaging - Frosted Translucent White (Wireless Phone Accessory)
Having read numerous reviews of different cases I figured I'd give this case a shot for my precious new iphone 5s.

The case consists of a misty looking rubber case with a thin white plastic band that clips around the edge keeping the silicone in place.

It is very easy to fit on the phone and fits snugly. It is a slim and light weight case so maintains the sleek feel of the phone (many cases bulky and heavy)

I took care fitting the plastic band as others reported it broke. The plastic band does appear that it may be fragile but I have removed and replaced the case a few times and if you take care it is absolutely fine. Once the plastic band is clipped around the phone it is no longer fragile as has the structure of the silicone case and phone behind it.

I'm not one of those people who tend to drop the phone or throw it around a lot, so my case is really for light daily protection and insurance for the time I really do drop it. I feel like this case is more than adequate protection for me and will probably last well. If you treat your phone particularly badly you need a much hardier case - but you probably know that.

It is now 13th Dec and can report that without dropping phone, removing case, or giving case any particularly hard wear I have noticed that the thin plastic rim band has split by the lightning adaptor port on one side. The case remains in place, only noticed as was looking at the port. I expect I will buy a new, different case within a few weeks as this will irritate me.
