The 10 Best iPhone 5s cases
Whether you want durable plastic or chic leather, you can dial in style – and protect your mobile – with these snazzy cases
Wednesday 18 September 2013
With its ultra-hard shell to protect your iPhone 5s or 5, the Kicksnap is already a good proposition for someone looking for a trusty case. But that's not all; the case also features a nifty kick-stand so that you can prop up your phone in portrait or landscape view.
A smart option for slick customers, this 100 per cent leather case is designed to save you having to take out a phone and wallet. The simple and sophisticated case includes slots on the back for ID, cards and cash, and the lid snaps closed with built-in magnets.
The Tech 21 case, designed specifically for the iPhone 5/5s, will protect your phone from drops, but avoids looking clunky with its clear plastic frame. Impregnated with d30 – an impact-absorbent material used by extreme sports brands – it's one of the most protective cases around.
A light, classic, snap case featuring original graphics from HUF. For full colour coordination, download the free wallpaper of the same pattern so that your phone looks just as sharp inside as out.
If you want to keep things simple and consistent, or if you just find it difficult not to buy everything that Apple produces, then you'll want one of these official cases launched alongside the iPhone 5s. The premium leather case has a soft microfibre lining and is available in six colours.
Simple and beautiful, the Snugg bamboo iPhone case really is made out of wood from sustainable sources. The case is formed out of two parts that lock together, ensuring a snug and secure fit for your iPhone.
A fun collaboration between the Danish toy company and Belkin led to this colourful case. The back is a standardised Lego base, which means you can customise the case with any Lego bricks you can get your hands on. Remember when all phones were bricks?
A smart case with a built-in charger, the Mophie Juice Pack will keep your iPhone 5 or 5s running longer without having to plug it in. Lighter than previous Mophie models, the case also provides edge-to-edge protection and the acoustics are designed to enhance audio playback, too.
Handcrafted from premium Italian calfskin leather, this is an iPhone case that will only look better with age. The case features two slots to slip in your cards or cash and comes in two colour combinations.
As if the name didn't say it all, the Defender is designed with protection in mind. The rugged case should shield your phone against drops, bumps and scratches, and colour combinations can be customised when you order.
