    New Trent Alixo 5/5s Ultra Thin Rugged Case

    Features:
    - Built in screen protector (comes in both black and white, both included)
    - Hard inner case
    - Soft outer case (clear)
    - Ports and buttons are covered
    - Touch ID compatible

    I recently reviewed this case for the 6. The 5/5s version is pretty much the same. If you prefer slightly more protection and this is a good balance between protection and minimal bulk. The white screen protector looks perfect with the white iPhone. The clear back is crystal clear, not frosted and allows the look of the phone to show through. The case doesn't add much bulk, but it feels like it would hold up well to a drop.

    If you have used Otterbox cases in the past, this is a better looking and feeling option in my opinion. All of the buttons and ports are protected but still easily accessible. The mute switch is uncovered, but recessed when the case is on. There is a thin film over the home button that protects it but still allows for the use of Touch ID.

    At this point I don't see any down side to this case. If any issues come up I will update my review.

    Writing about iPhone cases without pics is like dancing about architecture, without music.

    Funny, that is my other hobby.
