For the 5, I was a bumper kinda guy. I don't like bulky cases. I bought two bumpers on Amazon, and one fell apart in less than a week. Since the second one was the same kind, I returned both and went to the VZW store to see what they had. I bought the Tech21 Impactology since it appeared to be the best thing that fit my needs. I wish I could have found one with grey accents, but the orange isn't overbearing. See pictures below. I would absolutely recommend this case for someone who wants protection with a lip, and doesn't want a huge bulky case. It's slightly grippy, which can help with drops. The openings on the bottom are nice and wide. Strangely enough, the lightning cable opening is perfect for me to rest my little finger in when I'm using the phone one-handed. Wish I had some pics of the phone in it, but I bought it just before having to leaving town for work, and my phone is the only camera I have Let me know if you have any questions.
