I got this case about a week ago and had to return it because my phone was literally sliding around inside the case. It was a terrible fitting case.
I've been trying to find out if it was just the one I got, or if it is a problem with all these. Can you shift your phone inside the case?
Sorry. Just saw this. My phone fits snug, does not slide at all. However the case looks like crap now as it sucked in all the dirt from my hands. Not very white now. Plus you can see all kinds of lint and dust through the clear back. Would go naked if I didn't want the lens to get scratched like on my 4 for running naked.
Has anyone noticed a drop in LTE when using a case? I was using a Body Glove case and I noticed that with the case, my LTE consistently drop out but it doesn't do it when the phone is naked. Anyone else notice this with their case?
I had the otterbox commuter case but now I'm rocking the Element 5 case. So far I love it! Feels nice and light. I found that with the commuter case it was still too balky IMO. the element 5 also comes with a full enclosed zipper case that I use for work. Yeah it's a little expensive but so is the phone
I currently have an Otterbox Defender on my iPhone 5. But, once the issues with the LifeProof Fre case are resolved, I'll probably get one of those.
With my iPhone 4s, I hardly had a case on. But with the iPhone 5, I feel as if I NEED a case. I'm always thinking about resale value, hence using a case.
Definitely agree. The 64GB iPhone 5 is not inexpensive. Just avoiding the hassle for repairs is in my view worth the relatively small cost for a case. But beyond that its about good stewardship and taking care of investments and all the goodness that comes with a device like the iPhone 5.
I got my commuter case today and its pretty nice. I will get a different screen protector though. I was able to get the one that came with it on the first time with no bubbles or lent under it but it just doesn't seem as nice as others I have used.
I'm also reconsidering the Lifeproof case. I bought my daughter a black lifeproof case for her 4S for Xmas and I hated the screen protector on it because it was so far off the screen. She wanted a teal colored one so we exchanged in through Amazon and the teal one fits great. I'm guessing they must be getting better as has been mentioned.
Yes, case freak here.
Have the defender, which I really like except for the bulkiness, otherwise it is perfect for me. I do have a need for the belt clip too which is nice and included.
I also have the lifeproof which is awesome except the screen protector does not function as well as the defender's in terms of touch sensitivity, though I think I have a slightly older version and the screen protector is slightly lifted on the top and bottom due to the foam underneath. I wish it came with a belt clip for the price !
I also have the poetic atmosphere which is really nice and slim and perfect for those that don't need a high level of drop protection. Only 1 minor gripe- the bottom TPU portion is slightly loose.
