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".Read more ›
I looked everywhere to try and find a case that was Tough and Dual coloured as my 4S case was (It was Yellow Silicone Inner case with a Black Outer). But I could only find the Black on Black.
That said I am very pleased with this case as I was with the one previous.
It adds a little bit of bulk to the 5 but not too much. And this is far outweighed by the protection it gives.
All the controls are still very easy to operate and the case does not interfere in any way.
It also adds a little weight but again not that much.
I have dropped my phone twice since having this case and it's still fine - difficult to say whether the case saved the phone, but I like to think it did.
I have two issues, I find the case too slippery, I had the Speck HD pixel for my 4s which was similar but it offered more grip even though it was a tough hard rubber case like this one. The second issue is that it adds some bulk and weight to the light and slim iPhone 5. It now seems chunky like the iPhone 4s.
I am considering returning this case and using my rubber silicone case until I can find a decent case - everything seems to be on order or out of stock at the moment so I may have to stick with this case.
Update: A few weeks after my first review I still think it adds some weight and bulk plus the inner bumper case has sharp edges around the lightning connector cut out. I have ordered the Pixel Skin HD case and will compare with this one.
Update 10/2013 - after a year with the case I have to say I think it is great. Still in great condition despite many drops - it has protected my phone well. Not as slippery as I first thought and not too bulky. I would highly recommend this case.
Essentially a conflicting set of priorities.
After trying many many cases this is clearly the best and the best thought out. Not to mention it is very good looking:
1. Two part design. Inner part protects the phone from impact but is soft so also prevents scratches when fitting the main case.
2. Slightly raised about the screen, very subtle but plenty enough to protect when its put upside down
3. Bottom with charge port fully protected, I don't like cases which are merely open to the two corners. However this can cause an issue with the apple old port to lightening adaptor
4. Looks very smart
5. Texture grippy for holding.
6. All sides well protected
7. Multiple colours are nice. I chose black.
8. Reasonable price compared to some
