    Default iPhone 5s Cases

    Hey all. Sitting here looking through some of the cases available for the iPhone 5s was wondering what cases have you already bought, or do you WANT for the iPhone 5s?

    For whatever reason, I've always been a fan of going 'nude' with my iPhones (no case) but I could be swayed this time around.

    I always roll nude...I had a clear case on my iPhone 5 for about 3 days and removed it because I hated it on there. This time, when I bought my first 5S, I was checking out the leather Apple cases, and really thought they looked nice (they had run out of all the colors so I didn't get one)...after selling the first one, I got a second gold 5S and thought to myself "If you have the gold one, one of the most sought after models because of it's cosmetic appeal...why are you going to put a case on it to cover up the color?"...It took a while to get my 2nd 5S processed so I just sat there staring at the cases, and when the guy came back with my phone, I asked if he had a red case to try out...as soon as I put it on the phone, I was sold...the texture, the look and the quality...it's all there, and it's the best case I've ever seen for the iPhone.

    Apple's new leather cases are a brilliant accompanying piece to the iPhone 5S. Try one on when you get your 5S, and I'm almost positive you'll buy it (even if you're usually ANTI-case).

    Wouldn't it pretty much cover up the gold? Why not go clear or bumper with clear protector? I have yet to decide since I have yet to obtain my gold.

    It completely covers the gold...I stated that in my post. It comes down to an actual preference of the CASE itself...I really love the way the iPhone looks, but I also really love the way the case looks on the iPhone (something about the red case contrast with the white front body of the phone is really awesome to me), and it just happens to offer protection to the phone as well. Win/Win in my case.

    Right now I have the Black Apple case and a Mophie Helium. I'll probably get 2 or 3 more cases something from Case Crown and Spigen.

    I would like to keep the 5S for two years if that's how long it takes for the 6S to come out.
    I wouldn't invest in a bunch of cases for the 5S if I had plans of getting a iPhone 6 next year.

    I think I will get ghost armor clear full body with a cheap clear back cover for when I want some protection unless i can get a bargain life proof.

    I think I may sell in a year but we will see

    Otterbox defender. The only case I have bought the last two iPhones. I usually drop or unintentionally throw my phone at sometime during its life so I like to feel protected. Plus it gives me a secure feeling when holding the phone in my hand.

    Why would you be so concerned about leaving the iPhone without a case but then consider a life proof case? (which is one of the larger, and more cumbersome cases you can buy outside of Otterbox)

    I have the Speck Candyshell now. I'm thinking of getting the Apple case but I'm concerned about the port holes. I usually just pick up cases I like as I see them. Surprised I've had the Speck on this long! Lol

    I mean I'm not saying the LifeProof case has no purpose, hell, I even bought one temporarily earlier this year when I went white water rafting to use on the trip...but from your comment to me earlier and afterwards, it just seemed you were more inclined to go naked vs. using a case...and it just struck me odd that the first case you specifically mentioned was one of the big, brawny cases...not that there was an issue there, just that it seemed weird.

    I've been going caseless with my 5 lately (if it breaks, excuse to get a 5S!)...but I got the ice blue leather Apple one and the look of it against the white and silver (especially since you can seem a rim of the chamfered edge between the case and the screen) is so beautiful. It's easily my favorite case, and I'm a case ***** usually and have a white diamonds clear shell, speck candy shell flip in white/grey/aqua, belkin candy grip sheer in purple/teal, white incase slider, white life proof fre, speck fab shell in plaid, xtrememac snap on in grey fade to black, and a moshie frosted snap on in silver/white. The leather is my go to now (previously it was the fab shell or flip).

    I get 30% off cases at work. Bad thing for an accessory junkie.

    I bought the Incase SYSTM Cartridge case for my Gold 5s. It is clear backed so you can see the color. I am hoping Lifeproof comes out with a clear case soon for the 5s. I will only buy it if the fingerprint reader is usable with the case. I would make it my everyday case if those two options are available. If not i'll just use the Otterbox Armor I have for my old 5 for the times I need rugged protection.

    I usually go with the Speck Candyshell though I think many of their color combos are hideous. A teal and black would be nice across the board. I went with a Candyshell flip model this time to get that color combo. I always put a screen protector on, and always leave a hard case on and carry it in a soft and padded pouch in my purse, maybe overboard. I like how it looks without a case, but it's just not practical for my life. Hell, the very first few hours I had this phone, IN the case, I launched it right in the trash. I was DAMN glad I had a case on!

    When we went on vacation, I put my phone in a ziploc and put it inside one of these DryPak bags and it worked perfectly for beach days and when we went snorkeling. I never brought it INTO the water but it kept splashes out.

    Does the Speck Candyshell protects the phone from falls?

    I have had many cases for my iPhone 5 including the Lifeproof. With my 5S I didn't really use a case in the beginning. I picked up the black leather one from Apple at my local Verizon store and really like it. I understand it's leather and will age. I actually look forward to the more distressed look. It's thin, comfortable to hold.

    From most falls yes. It survived my launching it into the trashcan. My 4 and 4s survived random things well in their Candyshells.

    Just make sure you put a screen protector on the device since the case doesn't cover the screen.

    Personally I have always had a thing for Seidio and use their convert case with holster. A hard 2 piece case with a poly soft rubber to go over it with a hard skeleton to keep them both together. They cover all ports and come with a holster if you into it and i am. Mainly because of my job. Bought it through the iMore store for a great buy... I used it for my 4S and have never had an issue with it in 22 months.
