    Hey guys,

    Are there any IP5 cases out there that work with a screen protector. I have a casecrown case for my 4s that goes around the metal band and doesnt go around the screen so I dont have to worry about my screen protector bubbling. All the cases I am finding for the IP5 go around the screen itself which makes it near impossible to have a screen protector. Any suggestions?

    I would go as far as saying 99% of the cases you find work with a screen protector. The real issue is getting the screen protector perfectly centered so it does my male contact with cases that have a lip.

    I was looking at the Casecrown Bonbons case which is similar to the case I have now. But all the reviews say that the case is so tight that a screen protector wont work. This is not for me, its actually for my girlfriend. She needs a screen protector. And to make matters worse, I need it in pink!

    You are a good man! Buy her the Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid EX Snow Series in Pink, ((www.spigen.com/cell-phone/apple-iphone/iphone-5/iphone-5-case-neo-hybrid-ex-snow-series.html)) which comes with front and back protectors....then make her buy you a sandwich.

    A screen protector would definitely work with the casecrown bonbons.

    Hey - I have a pink slim Noot that I bought but actually like my white ones better. Let me know with a PM if you want it. The Noot doesn't interfere with the screen protector at all.

    By the way Nhwhazup, I got the Noot Bumper Case in the mail yesterday! Thank you so much for sending it out to me, I can't wait to use it.

    I would hope that every case is snug, or else your phone would just fall out. Like I said before, 99% of cases you find will work with a screen protector if you put the screen protector on straight. That case is a snap-on case, so it shouldn't even have a lip that would come up and onto the screen.

    The casecrown bonbons which you referred to in an earlier reply is a snap-on if I'm not mistaken.

    I'm having this issue with TwigCase. It bubbled up my temporary screen protector, so before I install a Power Support or Spigen I want to know their exact dimensions -- and if I have to, will trim to fit. I'm sticking with the TwigCase.

    There are actually both types in the Bonbons line from what I understand.
