This review is from: Insten Frost Clear Light Blue 1X TPU Case For iPhone 5 / 5S 712667
Blue looks great paired with a white iPhone
Flexible enough that larger connectors will still be able to plug into the lightning/speaker ports.
Nice tacky feel, doesn't slide around.
Doesn't interfere with screen protector if you have one.
Cons: Lock button is covered but not raised as much as I'd like it to be. You have to feel around for it. Additionally, it takes a bit more pressure to click the button than I feel should be necessary.
Cutout for mute/volume switches is just big enough. Recessed so accessing them can be a bit tricky.
The surface isn't smooth and flawless by any means. Look at it under a light at an angle and you see all sorts of blemishes, scratches and orange peeling. Moulding is also a bit rough.
The transparency of the case is pretty cool to look at as long as you don't get too close. If you do, you'll see all the dust that gets trapped underneath the case. Not very attractive.
Other Thoughts: Conclusion: the cons are largely nitpicks and doesn't detract from the functionality of the case. It fits well, stays on and has already saved my phone from ugly dings more than once. The iPhone 5's aluminum frame is much easier to dent and mess up, even with what might be otherwise a light bump. A drop or knock that would only lightly scratch the stainless steel frame on a 4 or 4S would leave a big ugly dent on the aluminum frame. For the price, this is a solid everyday case that isn't superfluously fancy. No need to spend 4 times as much getting something from a mall kiosk.
Can't beat Newegg's speed and service! And at the very least, Newegg doesn't exploit and harass their workers in other countries like a certain online retailer does...
