Contacted the company but they weren't willing to acknowledge or fix the problem so am returning it. Will try a different brand. Shame as I was a big fan of their previous model.
My advice? Don't waste your money. A good company that got complacent.
I wrote to to makers and they suggested this:
It may be difficult to press, but it does not mean that it is useless.
We can suggest:
1. remove and replace the Silicone Liner.
2. press the power button a bit to the left, harder and longer.
Clearly this didn't help. I have made it work, sort of, by cutting a tiny slither of the silicone off because I didn't want to waste my money completely.
On the downside, in heavy rain water creeps in by the volume buttons. Also trying to press the volume buttons (e.g. To take a photograph) just results in that section of the foam surround getting pushed in.

There have been a number of design changes to the iPhone 5 case including, a shorter hinge, a simplified locking mechanism and the absence of access to various ports. The net result of these design modifications is a case that is inferior to its predecessor. The biggest problem for me is that the case does not hold the phone tightly. Whenever I hit a bump on my road bike the phone rattles inside the case and either toggles on or off or, in some cases, tries to power down. This made it impossible to use my phone a computer for my road bike although it works well enough when mounted on my folding bike which has a smoother ride.
I have an issue with the seal on the case. At the bottom of the case, where there is a large rubber rectangle, it doesn't seal with the lid. The plastic rib and corresponding groove in the rubber that go all the way around the top and sides stop at the bottom. I can see daylight coming though this opening. It's not even close to being splashproof. I realize this is not a submersible 'waterproof' case, but in this case I don't think it's even weather resistant, as any water that gets on this area gets into the case- right at the lighting port, which has to be one of the worst areas to get water. I put a white piece of paper in the case to highlight the area I'm talking about- see the attached photos.
I've emailed Biologic, maybe this is a design flaw (my gut reaction) or a defective case. I'll update this review once I hear back from them. Right now, there really aren't many iphone 5 bike mountable water resistant/proof options, I'm hoping we can make this work.
Save the $50 on this case, buy something else. Sorry, I don't like to make negative reviews, but this is one time I feel compelled to do so.
