iPhone 5 cases were a bit on the scarce side right at launch, but now they're multiplying faster than tribbles. We're going to review every case we get our hands on, and we'll keep this gallery updated as we do. From simple silicon skins to rugged drop-proof tanks to blinged-out jewel-encrusted cases, we've got 'em all.
Drop Tech offers all-around protection for your iPhone 5. The thick rubber outer case stretches over a plastic frame that features a clear screen protection layer. The rigid frame protects your device from dents and dings, and the textured rubber design absorbs impact from your inevitable butterfingers moments. Operation through the screen protector feels natural, although it dust tends to collect on the inside surface. Luckily, the case can be quickly disassembled for frequent cleaning.
I'm not necessarily saying that you have to be "wild and free" to enjoy these iPad cases, but I would venture to say that unless you're the type that rides his bike, snowboards with your iPad in your bag or traverses dirt-covered trails, you might not find the cases featured in this week's Best Case Scenario of any interest to you.
This week, we've got a folio-style case from Timbuk2, two rugged, extremely protective cases from Otterbox and Gumdrop, and a cutesy pink case with Smart Technology from iFrogz.
