After recently purchasing my iPhone 5, I was anxious to get a protective case on it before anything happened to it. I was farmiliar with the Otterboxes but had always thought of them as the super bulky, over-priced case brand. However, this case defied everything I originally thought. It is somewhat slim, but extremely protective at the same time. I must admit that after reading some of the reviews for this case, I was a little aprehensive to purchase it. What especially scared me was the comment that the case left marks on the back of the phone. Out of precaution, I applied an iPod touch 4th generation screen protector to the back of the phone. After a few weeks of use I removed the case and discovered that the case had in fact left small rectangles on the screen protector. Because they were on the protector, this was no big deal and did not deter from the overall appeal of the case, however I do suggest that anyone who buys this case purchase an extra screen protector to put on the back of the phone. In conclusion, I must say this case is outstanding for the price and protects it from any drops. I got the purple one and I love the color and get many complements on it. I would definetley recomend this case to anyone who wants to keep their device protected but not spend alot of money on a case. Thanks for a great product Otterbox!
