Barely There ID Cases for iPhone 5/5S
Best Wallet Case Design
This is an amazing case. I was so disappointed that it took them so long to make this case for the iPhone 5, but I am so glad that it came. It is a little weaker than the iPhone 4 version, but it is so functional! I hope Case Mate makes it quickly for the iPhone 6 so I don't have to go through 5 cases trying to find one that I like as much....
Glad it's Back!
I had this same case for my iPhone 4. When I got my new iPhone, this style was only available in colors that I did not like. SO happy that the chrome was made available again. I like that it is shiny, slim and that it holds an ID and credit card. Truly complements the phone and easily slips into my pockets or small purses. My running joke is that all I need is my phone (since it has my ID and CC), lipstick and keys, and I'm good to go!
Not enough protection, slippery
I previsouly had purchased this case: http://www.case-mate.com/iPhone-5-Cases/Case-Mate-iPhone-5-Pop-ID-Cases.asp I thought it was a great case but it broke (the small piece of plastic near the phone Home button). I was pretty disappointed that it broke but I have a couple car docks that are setup for that exact size so i figured I would order up the same case. I didn't see it available on your site (my mistake) so I ordered this one instead which really doesn't give the phone enough protection, The bumpers dont go far enough around your phone and the case itself is slippery - ive already dropped it once because of it.
I was hooked on this case with my iPhone4. After I got the latest version for my iPhone5, it became clear that the quality of the material has gone down significantly. The iPhone 4 version was used for 2 and a half years without a single problem. This new one, much cheaper, lasted 10 days before an issue. I would have happily paid more for a better quality product. That said, I still love this case design, it's the best in the market of credit card friendly cases.
Over all great Case
I got the white one for the 5S. This case is a must for anyone who can live with a license and Credit card most of the time. Being a family man, during the weekends, I end up leaving my wallet in the car and we hop in the minivan to go places. there have been so many times I end up realizing, I don't' have my license or something to pay with. But I do have my phone. this is no longer a issue with this case. Even if I forget my wallet, I can pay for what ever we get because my card is with me everywhere I go. a must have case.
5s vs. 4s
The new case is not as good as the prior model. The old model allowed for each card to slide out individually. In the new case, both card slide out at the same time.
