Since its release last year, the iPhone 5 is definitely one of the best and innovative smart phones in starting at the moment it arrived on the shelves. It boasts a multitude of features and capabilities and embodies Apple Inc’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. However, despite its software and hardware being one of the best in the market, its aluminum shell is probably one of the worst casings ever, with it being prone to scratches. However, there are a lot of phone case manufacturers that have not only developed protective cases, but also developed ones that are aesthetically appealing. Here are the must have and hottest iPhone 5 cases currently on the market.
If you are looking for an overly protective case, then the Survivor is definitely one that you should have. This case is made up of several layers of protection and has passed the US Department of Defense’s standards. The case is capable of shielding the device from things like slight moisture, dust and dirt. Its hard polycarbonate shell absorbs the initial impact if ever a shock occurs while the inner silicone layer cushions and absorbs the device. The Survivor comes with a screen protector that protects the multi-touch, HD screen from the outside. Lastly, it has hinges that seal off the ports, utilities and cameras on its exterior and can easily be opened if you need them.
The Kicksnap is probably one of the more versatile cases in this entry, with it being made of a combination of hard polycarbonate and soft silicone topped off with a smooth and glossy finish. Its selling point is its kickstand, which allows hands-free viewing and finger-only browsing. The shell provides sacrificial protection by preventing scratches on the aluminum shell of the device and by absorbing most of the shocks and impacts. If you ever feel like looking up images and streaming videos, then the Kicksnap is one of the cases that you should have.
