    I haven't seen the elago S5 Flex mentioned much on this forum.

    Has anybody tried it? Looks really nice, has a lip to protect the screen, and based on other elago reviews I've read, I bet the fit would be good.

    I have a Pixelskin HD for my iPhone 5 that I'm not thrilled with because of a loose fit. I ordered an elago Slim Fit to replace it, but now I'm thinking I should have gone with the Flex (more similar to Pixelskin HD).

    I just got the elago S5 Slim Fit 2 in white and the glossy surface is so slick, I went ahead and ordered the Flex to see if it has a better grip.

    This case looks nice. Seems like a good alternative to the Incipio NGP.

    Uh oh... I ordered from Amazon and now reviews are popping up that the Flex power button is misaligned.

    I guess I will see on Thursday.

    Ah ok, under the black one there are no reviews. I would have thought all reviews would be linked between all the colors.

    They haven't shipped the order yet, so I have a weird feeling they know about it. I don't want to complain until I actually have it in my hands. So as soon as I have it, I will let you all know if it is misaligned. :)

    Got it. The power button isn't misaligned.

    Initial impressions: I really like the bezel protection and the material. Tight but not too tight fit.

    Only cons is the vibrate switch is a little too recessed and haven't tried with L shaped earphone plug yet. The volume button covers feel a bit strange to me.

    Does it feel bulky at all? This is the case I'm most interested in, but the Elago Slim Fit 2 is a close runner up.

    Got my S2 Flex for the iPhone 5 today from Elago. I'm not usually a fan of the soft cases but this one is pretty good. Feel like it gives great protection and it feels more like a hard case then the other soft cases I've tried. Not bad. I'd recommend it.

    Pics...

    Holy crap, it's only $9 on Amazon. I'd like to see some pics of the black one, if anyone has it.

    i just got my Elago S5 Slim. its the dark grey one off amazon thats hard, not a soft or rubberized one. i LOVE these cases, had one on my iphone 4. fit is perfect, tight and adds some rigidity to the phone that i wanted.

    It was easy to put on. Haven't taken it off. I remember the flexible cases like this from the original iPhone days, and this is much more solid and sturdy. Very happy with it.

    Dont have any pictures, but I got TWO of the yellow ones.

    Both are still plagued with misalignment. I couldnt get the power button to click after I got the first one.

    Customer service is great and responsive within 24 hours, and agreed to send me a new one. Same issue as before after I received the replacement.

    I even tried on another iphone5, just in case my phone is the "defective" party. Same conclusion, it is the case that's causing the problem.

    Glad for those of you whom received the updated version.....

    For those who received theirs, how is the texture? is it more rubbery/silicone? or is it like a harder TPU type?

    It feels more like a smooth hard plastic.

    This looks so similar to the Grip Candy Sheer. They should have made the camera hole smaller.

    It feels kind of like a cross between TPU and a "soft-touch" hard case. Very easy to put on and take off, and feels substantial without being too bulky. I have 2 of 'em--the lovely pink and the one that's kind of a Tiffany blue color. Both are gorgeous.
