This is probably the best value protective shell/cover for a smartphone I've ever seen or used and probably one of the best ones, period. No, it won't protect your iPhone 5 from serious fall damage, but it will protect it from small bumps and scratches, it looks great, is a tight fit and it feels VERY good in your hand - the back surface is extremely smooth. Oh and it's so cheap, the price is a joke for what you get.

After buying a bumper type case so I could still see the back of the phone I decided to get this one as some how something got under it and put a dig on the side (4 days old), these phones are just SO fragile!!!

After reading the great reviews for this case I decided to buy it and I am so glad I did. For £4.99 its amazing quality and fits the iPhone 5 like a glove. It's just tight enough without being too tight like a cheap chrstal case I also bought. It feels so good in your hand and makes it much easier to use. Although I don't think it will give the drop protection of the bumper it does have most parts covered and goes around the corners enough to protect them from little bumps and knocks.

It also has a small lip on top so if you do put the phone face down the screen is protected.

Buy it, you wont be disappointed!

I ordered this product based on the large numbers of positive reviews.

I am guessing that most of these reviews must have been left when the customers first received the case as after about 2 weeks mine started to fall apart.

The "Rubberised case" is in fact a white plastic shell with rubber textured paint applied to the top. I would not have minded apart from the fact that the paint has now started to peel off all around the case exposing the white plastic underside.

I don't see the point of having a £600 phone contained in a case that now looks awful.

I would suggest that anyone thinking of buying this case re-considers as I am just going to have to buy a new one now and have not been offered a refund.

I bought this varitation after recently buying the advertised '"rubberised" transparent black' version from Terrapin which was in fact a polycarbonate plastic case. Comparing the two, this case sits about 1mm above the screen surface which would give the phone some protection if put face down on a flat surface. With the polycarbonate case, the screen sits proud of the case.
The case corners don't follow exactly the corners of the phone which may collect pocket dirt, but it does fit well with no movement.
It also offers a lot more edge protection than the poly case as it curls up on the sides, but not too much to able to lift the edge of a screen protector. However, with both case types, the top and bottom face edges are still exposed.
Removal of the rubberised case doesn't feel that the whole thing would snap into pieces. The top left-hand corner on the poly case is particulary vunerable as it doesn't completely surround the volume buttons; the rubber case does, giving it a bit more strength.
Choose the rubberised version (not rubber), you get a better protected iPhone but you do hide the cool slate colour.
Choose the polycarbonate version, you'll end up with swirl marks on the glossy case after just a couple of weeks, but you will hardly notice it there.
In both cases, you have no shock and very little bump protection. What you do have are cases that looks good, and offer some scratch protection when combined with a good screen protector, and they are cheapish enough to buy another. My prefence is the rubberised solid black version.

Inexpensive and it has a nice matt finish, looks more expensive that it is. Nice and light so doesn't add too much weight to the lovely iPhone 5, it also is quite thin so doesn't turn the phone into an ugly brick.
Haven't tested its damage resistance and hope I won't have to.

This shell is even more lightweight than I had realised. It felt really sturdy when I unpacked it, and my iPhone 5 slipped into it easily. The cut-outs for the volume buttons etc are perfectly sized and positioned, allowing the perfect combination of access and protection. Compared with similar cases costing multiple times this price, I was really impressed with the value for money and the quality of the item. The rubber is perfectly smooth, yet feels safe and unlikely to slip, unlike some rubber cases I have used on previous phones.

Edited 19/11/2012 to add: This morning, I noticed a large split in the case and a crack all the way down. The phone has never been dropped, nor has it been exposed to excessive temperatures. I would have expected the case to last longer than 5 weeks. Very disappointed.

Absolutely terrible.... Broke after one week!

The plastic is thin, and the weakest spot is breaking like nothing.
I work in a office... I polish my Mac almost every day - but this thing, is just simply worth a dime.
Must either be a design error or something on the manufacotiring side.
