Tough Xtreme for iPhone 5
Had my iphone in my front pocket, had a lowside slide at about 40MPH. the road ate through my jeans and barely scratched the case. i hit so hard i have a bruise in the shape of an iphone on my hip. the case took the brunt of the impact and you would never know by looking at it. phone is undamaged and works like nothing ever happened.
This is the most attractive totally protective and durable case that I have found for my new iPhone5.. Not only that- the service from case*mate is unsurpassed. You better not change your mind once you order because it is on the way the same day!
Better than Otterbox Defender
Just received my tough extreme case for the Iphone5. Much lighter then otterbox. The screen protector fits close to the screen and does not inhibit use. Easy to put on. It is less bulky and less boxy looking. The only negative is the mute switch door does not stay closed. Need moe colors, got the grey and like it a lot Good work.
The Very Best
After much use (my wife and I both have Tough Xtreme Case-mate cases, which came about after doing much research and comparisons with other high-quality cases of other companies, we are certain, based on our experience and the experience of our friends family, that we chose the very best.
While the stylistically the case is great, the plastic screen cover is cheap and the case is in my opinion, poorly constructed. The screen easily scratches and reflects a noticeable multicolored light spectrum. The rubber material overlying the front of the case (around the receiver) is glued on. After a few months of use the glue lost its adhesive ability and went from allowing air bubbles in between the materials to a hanging flap of rubber. Not what I expected with under a year of use.
One major complaint
This is a great compact case that still offers good protection. The one major drawback is that the material gets dirty very easily. I work in an office, so not a particularly dirty environment, but my pink case looks pretty filthy. I have had other best selling silicon cases that don't get this dirty. The port covers are also more difficult to get closed than prior cases I have. Still, this case is nice and compact so I will continue to use it.
