    Good evening.

    Still awaiting delivery of my new 32GB gold 5s. According to the Apple website , they're going to keep me waiting till around 4th November (Ordered online with Apple 9th October.

    Anyway , personally I've always had a case on my iPhones. I think the iPhones are a beautiful phone & seems a shame to dress them , however they're also not cheap. I tend to always have a case on when out & about , work , play etc , however let them breath when home. I can't wait for my new Gold iphone 5s , if it's as attractive & good looking as the white/silver iphone 5 that I currently have , I'll be very happy indeed. Previous to this 5 , I'd always had black iPhones , however I have to say I was totally converted when the black & white 5's came out & I just can't ever see me going back to black. I change my iphone every year , so thought I'd punt for the Gold this time round as looked so damn classy & understated.

    With such a beautiful phone as the 5 & 5's are (my opinion) to me it's important the right case is used. I want protection , but my phone still has to look good & not totally wrapped up. I searched high & low for the right one for my 5 , used many but was never happy.

    This all changed when I found the CX Clear crystal case from Extreme - Shield. Totally clear Crystal silicone with side & back protection. It fits perfectly tight , & as it's clear , even when on you still enjoy the colour & beauty of the phone you've chosen. I have used this case for the last 12 months , & just ordered again , ready for a new/fresh one for when my 5s arrives. For £19.99 & buy one , get one free , in my opinion they are fantastic value for the strength , looks & durability it provides.

    Sorry if I've gone on , however I'm sure there's many of us out there that love the look of our iPhones , want to protect them , however don't want to completely hide their beauty. If so , then it's with taking a look at them if you're still searching for that perfect case.

    Cheers.

    Search the forum. Clear case threads are everywhere. I would personally recommend luvvitt. It is very minimal and it shows the iPhone's aluminum body beautifully.

    LUVVITT. Amazon. $15. No more suggestions necessary- buy it.

    Sincerely,

    A guy who's had all iterations of the iPhone and a ******** of cases

    How does it feel while holding it? I bought a clear case from switcheasy and it hurt while holding it. The way the bottom was cutout for the ports just stabbed into my pinky and my palm. I only used it for a few days. Just wondering because the reviews on amazon are pretty good all around. I see they have 2 models. One with a bumper and 1 without.

    I too have the gold 5s.
    I bought the Spigen Air case (not the totally clear one as scratches would be more apparent) but the 'frosted' one.
    I love it, perfect fit and adds very little to the chassis, whilst being mostly transparent.

    Cristal hard shell which is also scratch resistant is the one I got and the one I would recommend.

    They both fit 5s perfectly right? what about having a screen film on too? I am looking for one of those also but they just seem to say for 5 at the moment hope they fit the 5s perfectly too
