Woods for iPhone 5/5S
Ingrained style comes naturally with the Woods Collection. Globally sourced, each case begins with a single piece of premium, exotic hardwood that is infused with its own distinctive grain pattern. An aircraft-grade brushed aluminum accent completes the vintage automobile inspired design.
Visually appealing iphone case, like the texture of the wood. Like that it covers edges of phone providing moderate level of protection. Easy to get to all buttons & ports for headphones/charger. Shipped quickly. Would buy again.
Case is great! Good quality, looks nice and sharp, makes the phone look even more sleek. Shipping was speedy. I would recommend to friends and definitely purchase from Case-Mate again.
Great Case, It turns heads!
I bought this case, and I thought, wow, $50? This had better be good! It exceeded my expectations! I dropped it the first day, and it didn't crack or break open. It of course had some scuffing and dents, but hey, I dropped it hard on concrete. My iPhone 5 was safe and secure, not a scratch or ding. The case looks great, and I am buying a second one for my iPhone 5S. I recommend them to EVERYONE who asks about my case.
I love my case. It's very pretty aesthetically. It's durable too. Granted I don't drop my phone terribly often, but when I do this case holds up very well. My main problem is that debris, sand and the like, gets in the grooves in the inside of the back and in the sides of the front piece. I'm sure it could easily be washed out, and I've just been too lazy. All in all, great product. I'd buy from these people again.
somewhat disappointed with the case
I expected a much higher quality case for the price, and from the description and marketing. I was disappointed when I realized that the silver edges are plastic, and with the width thickness of the case, which detracts from the iphone's thin design. I grew to appreciate those plastic sides, however, when it slipped from my shirt pocket with direct side impact onto a concrete floor, protecting the iphone from any damage--the case held intact with the plastic only slightly damaged.
i have had my iphone 5 for about 3 weeks, i have had this case on the whole time. i work in a office setting and do not have a rough lifestyle. without dropping my phone or dropping anything on my phone some how the glass next the camera on the back of the phone shattered. This is one of the more expensive cases you can buy but it offers no extra protection
