Just picked up a frost/matte Diztronic TPU case from Amazon for $12 shipped to slide my white 5 into.

I no longer am on the search for a perfect case.

Don't have a black 5 on me at the moment to see how it looks with that on but here's some pictures:

There's a thread for this I don't really care if you have your own, but your pics will look nice in that thread right under my Diztronic black case :), both of the cases look amazing. The attention to detail with the volume buttons is very impressive.

Wasn't your thread about multiple cases?

maybe I just breezed past it.

Either way, kudos to getting those black pictures up. They made me more amped to get this case in the mail.

The volume and lock buttons feel great, I concur.

The curved side feels more amazing!

Then I'll get a replacement. 90 day warranty.

I've had it happen to clear tpu before. This supposedly has anti-yellowing chemicals on it to delay or eliminate the issue.

Excellent pictures. That case looks sexy on white. I have 2 clear cases coming in and I hope they look as good as that.

I love the sparkly looking diztronic I may have to try one after the other 3 cases I ordered. Haha!

I had a few too: Minisuit Smoke TPU, Poetic Bumper, and Poetic Atmosphere.

Sure

atmosphere is matte, hard plastic and the border areas as well as the front lip feel like TPU. On black, it gives off a smoky look. On white, it looks frosty. But I found the border areas to take away from the design of the white iPhone. It's also a bit slippery and boxy, more like the naked iPhone.

The Diztronic is grippy TPU but slips in and out of the pocket easily. More grippy than the hard plastic on atmosphere. The volume buttons press pretty easily, but they do on the atmosphere as well.

The atmosphere has a more open bottom than the Diztronic but the Diztronic bottom lip is more solid as a result of having structure between the back bottom and front bottom lip.

The curvy side of the Diztronic feels great in my hands. Better than Atmosphere, better than no case.

Also, the cam cutout on Atmosphere drops a bit lower than the camera lens itself, unnecessarily. On the Diztronic, the cut out is just where it needs to be, no more no less.

hope I helped :)

FWIW I liked the Atmosphere quite a bit.

Looks nice but the camera cutout is not centered.

The mute switch cutout isn't centered either but the camera cutout is the big one for me.

They are both centered as far as I can see in person.

That photo of the back from the angle definitely makes it look a bit off.

To each his own, though

Oh, nice! It looks a lot better in those pictures than the ones from the first post.

I think the angle and shadow kind of tricked my eyes.

I take it back! Sweet case!

All of mine were cheap. I now have 8 on the way for under $30. I'm very picky so I just went nuts getting ones I thought I would like...and after my $35 Otterbox Commuter was a let down, the cheap route I took. But eBay has some high quality unbranded items. The screen protectors I bought yesterday are evidence.

EDIT: His wallpaper is actually in the iPhone 5 wallpaper thread.
