Hey guys,


I looked around extensively for an iPhone 5 cover, but I cannot, for the life of me, find one I'm 100% sure about. My friend, who also has the 5, has an amazing cover, but he has no idea where he got it/what brand. It's so clear that I didn't even notice it unitll I saw the edge around the front camera! So do any of you have one/know of one that matches that description?



iPhone 4, iOS 6

    One of the best parts of iPhone and iPods (any version) is the schreen.

    Very strong glass. No risk to scratch it: I keep it in my pocket with coins without any cover, and you can clean it in a very simple way.

    It will probably break if falling down but it will probably break also with a screen cover.

    Hmm, I know that. I have a 4, without a case. There are very, very small scratches, only visible in very specific lighting conditions. I just thought I'd try something new with the screen cover. And I've made a habit of cleaning my iPhone 2x a day with a microfiber cloth.

    Thanks for the points !


    I understand.

    Of course there are things hardeer than the iPhone glass.... may be some sand particles or zirconia, diamonds...


    You should have them in your pocket .

  • Neil D Level 1 (30 points)

    Right. I have tons of sand in my pocket and I buy diamonds everyday, so yeah....I guess I won't get a cover...:)

    Hi - I got mine at the Verizon Store - salesman said it was the best? - it cost $15 US and is very clear and durable so far - and you can get "free" replacements for $4 shipping and handling - visit to check it out - I have also dealt extensively with Monoprice however I have not tested their screen protector - visit - &p_id=9749&seq=1&format=2

    Shipping costs more than the product.

    How about a cover case that instead of screen protector? I just feel the nude screen is crystal clear and sexy. dont wanna "protect" it

  • CRMDVM Level 4 (1,365 points)

    They are coming out with all kinds of cases now - I have a very light edge protector from - but I have seen industrial strength camouflage cases that you can run a tank over - the choice is yours.

  • murray007 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah. You are right. All kinds of cases. But still it is not easy to find a case with high quality interior so that my precious screen and back will not get scrached. I dont need a strong case. I want to treat my phone in a soft way XD give him "soft protect". Cuz in the market, too many cases' interior is hard and sometimes scraches the phone instead of protect.

    I've got a "incipio" case from my verizonwireless store and I love it... doesn't have a screen, but it's **** near as good as an otterbox without the prices tag or bulk.  Verizon also sells the clear screen cover which would work with the case, but given that the iphone screen is the second hardest material next to diamond and my girlfriend doesn't have a diamond ring... I figured it'll be safe enough.

  • Neil D Level 1 (30 points)

    I've looked at these cases:


    Switcheasy tones

    " NUDE

    GreatShield Legacy Cases

    Diztronic Black soft TPU case.

    Incipio slider.


    I narrowed it down based on these criteria:


    Slimness, looks, internal protection, minimal drop protection, front glass protection, aluminium side protection.


    I would've gotten a metal bumper, but I've heard too many signal-loss stories.

  • needleman_mark Level 3 (960 points)

    i just got a Switcheasy tone case - i like it except the 30 pin to lightning adapter doesnt work with the case ( the lightning cord that comes with the iPone 5 works fine) but if you try and use the adapter so you can use an old 30 pin cable it doesnt stay in he connector port. Switcheasy says they are working on a fix but havent decided wether they will give replacments to people who bought the original case or not


    Also as a precaution againts scratching the back of the iPhone 5 - i put a Zagg installshield on the back ( they dont sell them separately for the iPhone 5 - only in conjunction with a front shield) - so i have that back protector on before i insert the phone into the case - or even use it without a case


    No problems wih signal loss with the Switcheasy case

  • Neil D Level 1 (30 points)

    I don't like the Zagg sheild products, but maybe I will try another protector for the back. How slim is the Tones case?

  • AlfieRoach Level 1 (0 points)

    Personally I love the zagg shield but the smudge proof one also the cool thing is it comes with a lifetime warranty no glare and no smear from swiping also the one that comes with the otterbox products are good too

  • murray007 Level 1 (0 points)

    I've been searching for nice leather case. Now narrow down to le nouveau and prada. Need to dcide soon!
