this is the case you should be getting for protection and aesthetics, To show off that nice gold.
The sides are clear rubber like a bumper and the back is a solid super clear plastic.
agree best case to show off design this is what i used for my iPhone 5 and i am ordering another one this wknd for my gold iPhone 5S
I've ordered a Speck Candyshell in White/Peacock.
The ring around the home button will still be gold so people will be able to tell which one i have I drop my phone too much to not have a case like the candyshell on it!
Does the clear plastic stay pristine, or do you notice scratches on it after using it for awhile?
You're counting on people having better visual discrimination than I do. There's no way I would notice that detail unless I was sitting right next to you.
