  • "...for those who want to make their iPhones look like a cheap phone"

    Seriously - why would you cover the 5C's only real selling feature - the colored body- with a case?
    That screams"I bought the wrong phone for me. Oops."
  • Cheap phone

    Some people don't but a phone for the looks, or the nice colors, of the biggest screen. They buy it because it does what they want it to do, and they are more concerned with function than appearance, and an iPhone with a cracked screen, or dented back isn't very pretty, or very useful either. I don't need a case like that, so I have a TPU clear case that protects my iPhone 5 nicely, and still lets me appreciate its beauty, and small size. I have dropped it from 5.5 ft. onto concrete with no damage, even though it landed on the front. That's enough protection for me. Others may need more, and it is their choice to sacrifice appearance for function.
  • Otterbox's Are CRAP!

    I purchased one for my Droid Razr Maxx last year. While the case itself is rugged, the screen protector scratches easily and the belt clip is junk. Six months after purchasing one of the tabs broke off allowing my $300 Razr to fall on the ground all the time. I contacted the company through their own website. I took the required pictures with date and time and filled out the form. That was in March 2013 and I have yet to hear a word from them. I've contacted them twice since but still have yet to hear a peep from them. Many friends I know that have these cases have had the belt clips break off rendering them useless. The product is crap and the customer service is non-existent!

    Does the new iphone 5s have the ability to add the liquid cover like the 5? My buddy got it at radio shack with the otter box and loves it..cannot remember the name of it, you out a liquid on it then press the screen cover over it..pretty expensive, 25-30 bucks plus the otterbox..
