iPhone 5s best Case, Bumper...

Posted on 2013-11-08

I am waiting for my iPhone 5s to ship so in the mean time I am thinking about changing up my case options. I bought the gold model so I like the way it looks but a lot of the phone just cover up the look of the iphone, which I like a lot.

So I was thinking about getting one of the high quality films for the front and back and then get a nice bumper. Any suggestions on how well this works or doesn't work?

Any suggestions on good quality bumpers? I looked at a few that were flimsy plastic looking to me, I wouldn't mind a aluminum bumper if they make them.

Any other new case ideas that work well? I try not to get anything too bulky and cheap, I just hate covering up a $800 phone with some crappy $5 case.

I have a strong lightweight plastic case for my iPhone 4s. It covers the back and sides.

I put a film on the front glass to protect it.

I have had to replace it once, and when I did, I saw the same thing in the Apple Store for iPhone 5.

I like it because (a) it is protective; (b) it does not cover or interfere with the operation of the phone; (c) it adds little bulk; and (d) it protects when I drop it occasionally.

Thanks. I ended up getting a Graft Leverage, I think that will work well and it gives me the option to use it as a bumper or I can use it with a back plate and it is very slim so it doesn't add much bulk. I don't like the really bulky cases, maybe if I was a lumberjack or something it would make sense, lol.
