I had them for my iPhone 4 and they were very beautiful; however, they all broke because they weren't very resistant against drops. Despite that, my phone never received any damage, so I guess they did what they were supposed to.

Here's what mine looked like.

Here's where you can order them for anyone interested. I'm also debating if I should say screw the case and just get a neutral skate back with a SGP Glass.t.

Yeah, my husband had a custom one that he loved but that shattered when he dropped his iphone 4 one day. We're going to get him another one for his new 5. Grove claims they are more drop resistant now, but we'd be getting him one anyway because he liked it so much. They are beautiful and the ability to customize is great (husband had his business's logo)

I wanted one for my iphone 4 but the metal band they used to use killed my already pathetic at&t reception at work. They don't use the metal anymore and I have verizon with my iphone 5, but I prefer a minimal case. I'm waiting for good bumpers to be available.

I pre-ordered the first Grove case for the iPhone 4, and had it until I got my iPhone 5 on Sept. 21. It was still in great shape, so I gave it to a friend to use on his iPhone 4. Grove's iPhone 5 case is going on sale on Friday, and I plan on getting one. They've made some changes which is supposed to make it more durable, so it will be interesting to see what the new case is like. Highly recommended!
