Review: I just traded up from the Iphone4s to a 5s, and I immediately purchased another Barely There Case. I had tried several case with my 4s, and finally found perfection with the Barely there case. Its not bulky, so lightwieght, and perfect to hold in my pocket without weighing me down.

Pros: It is a sleek design that is truly barely there.
Cons: Poor manufacturing of the case. The edges of the case (both top and bottom) have very sharp edges that catches in pockets etc.
Purchased From: case-mate online
Review: This is my second Case-Mate Barely There iPhone case. The design is exactly what I want: a sleek minimalist design that is barely there. Unfortunately, the latest version has very sharp edges (top and bottom of case). The edges catches on pockets and as a result, is not as comfortable to hold as previous version.

Review: This is my second Barely There case. The first one was the black rubberized one and it was great. It lasted me over a year and was still looking pretty good. Then I got a new phone and switched to the translucent one -- I'm not nearly as happy with it. The materials feel super cheap and the edges are razor-sharp for some reason. I thought about returning it but then I was like... it's a cell phone case, get over it. Anyway, I like the brand but there is definitely room for improvement with the clear case.

Pros: As advertised: Slim, light-weight, sleek and transparent
Cons: Not scratch-free upon shipment
Purchased From: Online
Review: The first case I recieved had clearly been used: significant scratches and opened packaging made this obvious. CaseMate sent me another case right away, free of charge, no questions asked. While this second case clearly had not been used (original packaging was still intact), there were still some very very fine scratches visible under just the right conditions of lighting and angle. These scratches were not a deal-breaker, but I have the impression that the best protective precautions were probably not made either during or after its stint on the assembly line.

Pros: Good coverage
Cons: Not as durable. Not smudge-proof
Purchased From: online
Review: The case was not as durable as I was expecting and was very flimsy. It is also surprisingly hard to keep clean. You can see fingerprints all over it. It did have the amount of coverage I was looking for and looks good.

Pros:
Cons: did not last very long, broke easily and now looks terrible
Purchased From: online from casemate
Review: I was happy with my purchase initially but after only 5 months, this product fell apart. I love how slim and sleek it is but the corners have all lost the colouring (I bought the purple one) and the material is coming off and looks really shabby. I keep my phone in a separate pocket away from keys etc so I would not expect this to happen. Very disappointing.

Would you recommend the iPhone 5 Barely There Cases to a friend? YES
Pros: Sleek, clear, sharp looking and does not detract from the phone's beauty
Cons: Not super durable
Purchased From: Case-mate.com
Review: Case fits perfectly and looks great, adding protection while not detracting from the phone's beauty. It has a slight lip which protects the screen when lying face down. The only cons are that it is a bit slippery (you know, because it is plastic after all) and I have dropped it a couple times and slighlty cracked a couple corners. It has done its job and protected the phone, but if I keep dropping it, I don't expect that this case will last the duration of my phone contract. So with that said, I'd by two instead of one, just to save on shipping costs.

Review: I was going to go case free when I got the 5S because it's so beautiful, and did notice that I appreciated the design much more without a case, but I got some scratches and worried about dropping it. Accidents do happen even when you're careful. This case is as beautiful as the phone.
