    It's a shame to cover the beautiful gold of the phone with a case.

    I gave in. Although I have Apple care, I needed a case against scratches at least without jeopardizing the design :D

    Clear case from "Adopted", but I think it looks better without a case :rolleyes:

    Going with this Cognac case to compliment my Gold 5S...I think it will highlight the accenting around the home button nicely!

    I am also considering a good combination..From what options i do see, I really like Spigen's tough armor with a grey 5s...Black on black looks really cool

    On the other hand i really do want to go for the Gold or silver having every iphone till date in black...

    I request you guys to show me a combo that can potentially change my mind (Something that protects the 5s to a similar degree as a Tough armor, yet matches nicely with a silver or gold)...

    This is all I can did. To compare with the silver iPhone 5s:
    Incipio Dual Pro Shine for iPhone 5 - Retail Packaging - Titanium Silver / Obsidian Black

    Change of pace

    Had a black iPhone 4s and wanted to try something new with the gold. Just got the gold iPhone yesterday, but didn't like the white front, so I combined a black face plate with a black/clear bumper that would still show the gold. I think it looks ok for now, but if it doesn't grow on me, I may trade in the gold for space gray:

    lol what u guys reckon? just a 3$ ebay see thru tpu case that protects all sides of the phone. hmmm.doesn't add too much bulk as well. don't mind the back as theres a screen protector so theres like a sticky effect thing. ;p

    true. an iphone is a beauty in it's bare state but we need to protect our investment somehow. i am also looking for a clear case but decided on this SPIGEN Ultra Hybrid. i have not received it yet and will let you know how it is.

    Gold iphone 5S cases/bumper

    Just put an Invisible Shield on front and back. Looking for a very good clear bumper. This phone looks soooo good. Can't bring myself to cover it up.

    I was torn between the gold and space gray but the white front just looked better IMO. I'm looking for a clear case as the gold coloured cases don't colour match the phone well.

    Really happy with my Power Support Air Jacket clear. This is a hard case, but very good fit and very protective. This is my first white iPhone.

    On black phones any scratches on a case really show up, but on a white phone scuffs on the case are not that apparent. (Same thing with watch faces, BTW)

    Fun to have the gold show thru, and should be color stable.

    It does allow a small amount of dust in, so I remove it off and on (perhaps once a week) just to clean it out a little.

    This is the Incase SYSTM in black. So far I'm really liking it.

    I have static screen protectors installed on the front AND back of the phone. No bubbling. The squares on the back are ever-so-slightly frosted and seem pretty resistant to scratches. The squares are actually elevated (as opposed to sunken in). The fact that they stick out kind of reminds me of the parallax effect if it took physical form.
