Barely There for iPhone 5/5S
Think thin with the original slim case. The Barely There forms a classic and protective design that shows off the slim profile of your device. The impact resistant hard shell covers the back and sides, while the lay-flat feature protects the front of your device by extending the bezel above the screen.
At first I thought it was great. But shortly thereafter it broke. Disappointed.
Ugly and Durable
I thought, because it was called barely there, that it would have been thinner. I also think it is ugly. It scratches after about the first or second week of normal use (see photos). However, it is at least durable.
expectations were different
I expected a thiner Barely there case , and a nicer design...
Good case, needs to withstand regular use
Initially, I loved this case. It was very slim like I wanted yet protected my phone from daily use. I left my phone in the center console one day due to not wanting to take my valuables with me, and I returned to find the case cracked and bumpy due to the heat in the car. It was not 110 degrees outside and I felt the case should have withstood something as simple as the phone being left in the car. Now, the case itself still works but the texture of the case is ruined and not pleasant to touch any longer. Overall, decent case but apparently too delicate for my purposes (which are not rugged or extreme uses).
Short Life Span
I use my IPhone in many activities. That requires different cases, protection, guards etc. this case is fine as long as you put it on and leave it on. But if you remove and reset the case daily it quickly breaks, the strength is insufficient in the sidewalks to do that (release edge pressure and snaps). Our other one never gets removed, it's performed well.
