I have recently purchased this iPhone 5 Case from Cellz.com at a very low price and I am quite happy with it.
Give it a try they have a very large variety of iPhone Accessories

I just found some really cool iphone 5 cases on Amazon that was about half the cost that I saw in the mall: amzn.to/11q2Yzw - I bought three.

This has just launched on Kickstarter, and promises to be cheaper and smaller, but also has cool built-in gas lights that make it glow in the dark.
Well worth seeing out, just to see the lights.

Why didn't ya'll mention the most popular case around? Otterbox is the best case!

If anyone wants to try something new, try out Hitcase Pro/5. I am stoked the case is not only 33 feet deep, has a shock proof seal, but there is a wide angle lens of 170 degree field of view. This thing can take a beating, I take it literally everywhere.

X-Doria's Engage Bamboo case looks very nice, but the web site the link refers to doesn't exist. And X-Doria's own web site does NOT have that case at all. I remember trying to find this case several months ago, and they just don't carry it. Just FYI.

Great case. But it seems less protective

Personally, I think iPhone5 Taktik Extreme Metal Shock Drop Resistance Case should be one of the best iphone case, it is the first phone case to use the tempered glass shield for screen with great discount 45% off now on theideasforgift.

I would strongly recommend adding and testing the Lifeproof Frē for iPhone 5.

Can highly recommend my ALFA case from EDGE Design.

I think they are overpriced and too expensive. They look good, and I actually like some of them. I really want people to check out our cases too though. We have cases that are made with high quality TPU material; slim-fit, light weight, but provides great protection to your iPhone. It's called Alice Pastel series, and they're priced less than $10, but they are same/or even better quality items than those popular branded cases. Check out MyPhoneCase.com for more detail if you're interested.

These are some unique cases. Not sure if I want my phone to be that fancy.
If your mainly looking for best protection but still want a great look, check out some cases with D30 military grade protection gel here:

I have Aluminum's case and it cuts my signal in half. I used it for a total of five minutes and put it back in the drawer. Now to put it on eBay

I've been using a combo of the Zagg Invisible Shield and the Poetic Atmosphere hard case (on Amazon for $10). It covers the whole phone without being bulky. It does have some tackiness, so it doesn't feel like it's going to slide out of my hand. Check it out for those who don't want to spend a ton and covers the whole phone.

30 cases reviewed and not one mention of the nicest in my mind, the Otterbox Defender, sure it adds bulk, but it sure protects the phone. My old iPhone 4 took many a drop in it's Defender, never even skipped a beat. Now that I've got a iPhone 5, it lives in a Defender, for obvious reasons.

I agree @nbrowser … No mention of what I consider the best case on the market. My iPhone 4 lived in a Defender since date of purchase and remained in impeccable condition when it came time to upgrade. We keep it as a spare in the event my daughter damages a sixth phone.

The new silicone wrap is even stronger than on the original model, and since the weight of the iPhone 5 is about half that of the 4, it makes for even safer “drop cushion”. If you need solid protection from just about everything except water, the Otter box Defender is a smart choice.

iPhone 5 cases. I always like to leave comments whenever I see something unusual or impressive. We should appreciate those who do something special. Keep it up, thanks.

We have been selling Speck for years and have learned about their flaws. The silicon portion of their cases become gummy and the outer shinny shell scratches easily. Beautiful cases, great fitting, but they need to invest in better quality materials if they are going to play in the price range they are in. The fact AT&T, Best Buy and others sell the Speck, does not mean that they are good cases. I've seen much better.

I really like the wooden cases this shop is selling, they have a natural feel to it and they have nice designs.

shop name: Creative Use of Technology and they sell on Etsy

Not too sure about a crystal encrusted iPhone 5 cases. I am not a fan of huge bulky cases or gimmicky designs.

We really like really thin clear snap cases. All skinny no bulk however not for the accident prone. Shameless self promotion at its best.

No matter what case u buy, u gonna need one, because I discovered that after a year, the paint on my iPhone gets off the phone. Of course I use it, but I doesnt look nice.
Its a corporate phone, so im not that sad :)
I was surprised how well it works together with our telephone system, Ozeki Phone System XE.

Beware that Speck also voids their replacement warranty if they find that you didn't buy your Speck case at full retail price from an "authorized reseller". They arbitrarily voided my warranty because, while I had purchased it through Amazon, the seller was not Amazon itself. They cited that it was a potential counterfeit product, even though Speck itself had already replaced my initial case once before due to a known design defect (stress cracks) in the port opening.

I didn't expected that some one at maclife is a big of Swarovski diamond cases. No more comments on this I think you know what I mean. Maybe it would smarter to focus on cases that has good quality materials offers great design and functionality ?

If you need some inspiration please visit mgadget.net/best-iphone-accessories/best-iphone-5-cases/

and next time please do some reasearch, we come to this website for quality not advertisment

thanks

Let me tell you, the Speck FabShell Burton is a LOUSY CASE!! The design on the case is just a series of glued on stickers that don't stick well. Perhaps they should change the type of glue that they use. It's definitely not worth $40.
