    This case is super! It's a bit bulky, but not overly. I dropped the iPhone while riding my bike. Even after bouncing on the asphalt road, the phone had no damage works fine. My only MINOR issue is with the on/off button cover. It;s almost too tough to push the button down. BUT, I'll take a tough button, over bouncing my phone of the asphalt at 20 mph! Get it for your phone !

    Solid case, could be better

    The case fits well and doesn't add too much bulk to the iPhone 5. It feels solid and I get the impression that the case would protect the phone from typical drops/bumps/falls despite not feeling like a kevlar brick. Bonus for having plugs to protect the headphone and charger ports. For ~$22 the build quality of the case fits the price. The surface of the case is a bit slippery. I haven't had issues handling it, but laying it on an inclined surface has caused it to fall off where I haven't had that issue with other cases before. Good thing it's durable! The button access could be better, specifically with the "sleep" button on the top of the phone. It just requires a little harder press, not rocket science or a severe inconvenience, but that could be improved. My biggest issue with the case (and any full back, i.e. non-bumper, case that doesn't include this feature) is why not include an extendable kickstand so mobile video watching is easier. Again, not a critical fault as when I'm using my phone to watch a baseball or hockey game I can usually find something to prop it up, but this seems like a no-brainer feature on any quality case.

    What was Otterbox thinking?

    This is by far the oddest and worst case I've tried for my iPhone 5S. The case looks very pleasing in photos but that's not the case when you get it in your hands. First of all, the case has sharp edges and is very slippery. So slippery, that it doesn't grip to any surface. Next, the design is simply poor. The bottom of the silicone skin only has a thin piece of rubber going across the bottom of the screen. Ideally, the hard plastic shell is supposed to hold that piece in place but it doesn't... it just moves around every time you take your phone in and out of your pocket. The silicone skin also makes it really difficult to hit the power and volume buttons. I'm usually okay with this but not to the extent that this Otterbox does. Overall, this is an awful case for the iPhone.
