Tough Xtreme with Belt Clip for iPhone 5
Protects the phone, but belt clip can't hold the stress...
After 10 days of use the clip that holds the phone in the belt clip snapped off. Make sure that you seat the phone squarely into the belt clip every time or the stress will break the small clip at the top. After 8 months of use the spring loaded clip that secures the unit to your belt/trousers broke in two. Ok product considering the amount of stress the unit takes with daily use.
Case-Mate iPhone 5 Tough Xtreme with Belt Clip:
Very pleased with this case and belt clip, which has full 360Âº detent rotation. However, the outside piece of the clip should be bent inward slightly to prevent it digging into the wearer's side above the belt/pant waistline. Otherwise, a great product!
Buy This Case!!
I absolutely LOVE this case! It still looks great after months of use. It has protected my phone from numerous "accidents", mostly being dropped. I get many compliments on the color and style. You won't regret buying this case! :-)
I like it, I always break my phones this case seems the be the best choice for my new phone!
Would buy again
I like the case very much, it is easy to use and not to bulky. It is a little hard to get phone out of clip but I solved that by turning it around on clip. I like it very much and would buy again.
Great idea but not quite there yet
I would not pay full price for this. Even with a discount, it is not what I expect of a case in this price range. The belt clip is very loose - it does not grip tightly at all. After just one week, I had dropped my phone 3 times because it slipped off of the edge of my portfolio. (My old fashioned pager gripped tight, however and stayed put while the phone fell to the ground). The fold-out cover for the power port will not go back into place. It will still fit in the belt clip though. The main reason I purchased this cover was for the clear front. It works great but is not very sturdy. It cracked or scratched (can't quite tell which) the first day I had it in my purse. The concept of this case is great - it has everything I wanted. The reality is that it just isn't quite there though. Looks good, doesn't function that well. I guess I can at least say that the cover on the sides and back are tough considering it's been dropped a few time. Extreme? No.
