    Good except for one thing

    • Written by from Manlius

    I had a tech 21 for my iPhone 5 and had it for 1.5 years before getting a 6 and a white tech 21 case. I really like the case and it's very protective except that when I was in the sun for a couple hours, and my phone was in the shade for a lot of the time, the white turned yellow. So definitely disappointed about that

    Good protection

    • Written by from Franklin Lakes

    I used this case for a month or so before switching to something different.

    I liked its shock resistance and overall protection without much added bulk. Some things I didn't like, which are completely subjective, are the color combinations. I wasn't a huge fan of the orange and other neon colors. Also, due to the nature of the material, the volume and sleeps buttons become much less responsive and are rather difficult to press. I went with the clear case on a black phone, and I thought it made for a very attractive combination. The black aluminum looked gray through the case, which was very similar to the iPhone 5S Space Gray.

    Some things to watch out for: It appears that the case was reengineered some time during its life cycle, but the part numbers stayed the same. There used to be a lot of droop in the case around the charging port/home button. The later models came with structural reinforcements that completely eliminated this problem.

    Very good! But yellowing plastic.

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I bought this case because I wanted something that looked unique and protected the phone without adding bulk. This case is very good and does everything that it's supposed to. I've dropped my phone a few times with the case on and not a scratch has appeared on my phone. The orange siding and the design is very attractive.

    Only complaints are that the buttons are a little too stiff in my opinion. Some people say that they are easy to push and are perfect, but I find them a little on the stiff side. Another thing is that the clear plastic yellows very quickly. It's not very noticeable on the back but on the side you can definitely see the yellow in the plastic. And if you compare it to a new one, then it becomes very clear that the plastic has acquired a yellow tint.

    But functionally wise, this case is excellent and I would recommend it. Perhaps try the darker version of the case if the yellowing aspect of the plastic deters you.

    Sleep button wore out

    • Written by from Porters Lake

    Loved this case, still do...but after only 5 months, I have to press the sleep button 3 or 4 times to click the phone off :(. Works fine with the case off, I guess it has compressed too much, and now is not very effective. A lot of money for a case that wears out...

    Great Case Except 1 thing

    • Written by from Ashland

    I had boughten two of these one for me and the wife we loved the except the plastic clear backing gets very nasty very easily. The quality of it felt very cheap not the case just the clear back protector could have been a bit more to it all in all a good case. If they can improve this clear backing I would give 5 stars.

    Great case

    • Written by from Glendale

    My case does not have the dot pattern on the back, it is clear and it has scratched up quite a bit, it even scratched when I initially put it on the phone. However, I'd rather the inexpensive plastic piece on the back scratch, instead of the phone.

    I love their cases. I won a couple directly from Tech21 for my iPhone 4 and so when I got my iPhone 5 and the case was available, I picked it up from their website and have not used another case since (other than my mophie for long days).

    I've dropped the phone multiple times and no damages at all. Love, love, love their products and their customer service. So glad they are now in Apple stores and available 'across the pond'.

    Great protection; Not bulky.

    • Written by from Cincinnati

    I hesitated to buy due to adding thickness to the iPhone body, but it's more sleek than you think. Phone still feels thin and light. This case saved my phone a couple times from shattering. I hardly drop my iPhones and often go without a case, but it fell face flat and hard; I will now always use this case! Doesn't hurt the phone; Haven't seen scratches on the phone body after 3 months use. The colors are bright and on trend. I definitely recommend this case for protection and minimum bulk. Great customer service is a plus. I am rating 4/5 stars because the clear was yellowing pretty quickly, but Tech21 is graciously letting me exchange for the pink. I think I had a faulty case because Apple employees had not seen that happen prior to me bringing it in.

    Saved from Car!

    • Written by from Ladue

    I dropped the phone out of my pocket with this case on. Unfortunately, it was screen up. I am very surprised though, the back and sides of my phone are perfect! The front has bad cracks but nothing near what you'd expect from a car running over it.

    Great case...

    • Written by from london

    overall i am very happy with this case, the orange is great, and it fits snugly (except for the upper part of the camera/flash aperture, where its not entirely flush with the phone within.

    the only major let down in my opinion is the bottom edge, which is far too flimsy for my liking... it reminds me of those awful jelly-sandals from my childhood, you know the ones that would ravage your toes/heels.

    if this was one area was more sturdy, it would have earned itself a healthy 5-stars

    tech 21 band case

    • Written by from MIAMI

    bought the case today. clerk at the app store dropped an iphone with this case to showCASE it and was inpressed. it fits snug all around with the exception of the bottom where it's charged, the plastic is very flimsy. it also has a nice grip to it. also, there's only two colors available at the store; more variety would be nice. it does make the phone 'look' wider but i dont mind. as long as it's protected and still eliminates it from being bulky, im good. other than that, seems to be a great case thus far.

    Good Case

    • Written by from Hackensack

    Great case for protection and does not add bulk to the phone. It looks great but the only downside is the bottom is a little too flexible and moves up and down quite a bit. Overall though I'd say it's a buy.
