    Poor quality - beware

    • Written by from London

    These cases look nice, but there are numerous issues which Apple clearly haven't thought through. Firstly, dust and grime collects in the small holes, meaning that when you remove the case you're greeted by a rather unattractive series of dirt circles. Secondly, the hole design rather oddly covers part of the 'iPhone' text on the back--it just looks strange. Thirdly, and most problematically-the case has split along the middle.

    Just avoid.

    Hefty Price for such a case

    • Written by from Manchester

    Personally I don’t particularly think the iPhone 5C requires a cover at all, it’s a fairly robust little phone, however a biking accident left me with a nasty scar on the back of mine so I bought this cover to hide it (luckily it was at the top).
    So, on a positive note are the nice vibrant colours, easy to fit and remove, the access holes and button covers are spot on and probably the main advantage having a slight lip on the edge which protects the screen from touching a surface left face down.
    On the negative side however I’ve spent countless times removing the case to clear the dust which collects in the holes on the back, pretty annoying. I also find it strange that a brand like Apple with such an attention to detail would make a case with holes that show through half of the information on the phone itself. Though the silicone is great to the touch and helpful in the way that it doesn’t slip on shiny surfaces it is aggravating to put in and out of your pocket, I find myself trying to stuff it and turning pockets inside out with every call. The price point is a bit hefty too for such a basic cover.
    It does the job but personally I’d look elsewhere.

    I recently bought a yellow iphone 5c and decided to protect my purchase by getting a black apple case. When the case arrived i was impressed with the quality and snug fit around my 5c, so far so good. However when i put the case in my pocket it collected a sizeable amount of dust that quickly turned my black case white. Since then i've been spending the last week wiping the case every time i remove it from my pocket or even when i wake up in the morning after the phone has sat on my clean bedside table. In terms of looks i like the look of the case (when it's clean) and it complements the phone well. Overall though i couldn't recommend this case as it is a dust magnet that quickly becomes annoying.

    When I first got this case I really like it looked great on my new iPhone. 2 weeks later the case started to split I had never dropped the phone so can not be due to that I would not recommend spending that much on a case to do that in such a short amount of time.

    Well worth it

    Great looking case which is very low profile and looks awesome on a green 5C.

    Will protect against bumps and scratches however, I don't know if I would feel confident if I dropped the phone from a height but regardless of that I don't plan on doing this! I'm not fussed that the holes on the back of the case slightly obscure the iPhone printing on the back of the phone. In my opinion I think some people can be too fussy these days. The case will also protect the screen if the handset is placed face down as the edges are raised.

    All in all a good purchase and would recommend to any other 5C users.
