    Because he gets his phone to use it for what it's intended to be -- a phone! Not to sit and stare and marvel at it's aesthetic beauty all day. God forbid that he protects it!

    Power support bumper (black)
    Bodyguardz Pure screen protector
    Spigen aluminum home button (black)
    Spigen matte rear protector

    I was going to switch out the rear protector with the one that I got with my PS bumper since its one piece, but I'll probably hold off until something happens to the current one.

    I've had a spigen neo hybrid ex (non-slim) and Draco bumper before and this one easily beats them out. The Draco looked great, but hurt my signal and felt awkward in hand. The spigen was glossy which I didn't care for and on the bulky side. I can't comment on how the slim compares to this as I didn't get one. Also, the audio jack on those is only big enough for apple products or the like.

    Sorry, I got a bit off track there. Point is this is the first case I've had no issues with. It wasn't cheap to import, but I'm really picky about my iPhone accessories- so to me it was definitely worth it.

    Fit is very snug. Front lip is flush with my pure so probably a bit raised over the actual screen. Back lip is a bit more raised than the front. Also worth noting- obviously the bumper is plastic, the lips are a hard rubber and the edges are not rounded and kind of sharp feeling. i dont really mind it. I felt inclined early on to press hard on the power button since its like its not even there. Its a non-issue with the volume buttons since there's more of a tactile feedback or 'click' when pressed and I've already gotten pretty used to it. The lack of feedback on the power button is most likely due to it being so close to the corner of the phone. Metallic color looks great and matches the slate on my phone very nicely. Audio jack opening is wider than the spigen and fits everything I've thrown at it. I don't have the lightening adaptor so I can't speak on that. Overall, it's very slim and elegant looking. If it weren't for the lip on the back it'd be easy to forget I even had a case on to begin with.

    I think others have posted some. I'll try and get a few pics up myself for you, though.

    Are you his dad? Is that why you feel the need to answer for him? I am not going to go into the brick vs the ultra thin debate, but it seems rather stupid to completely encase the iPhone, should just buy a generic android device.

    This must be one of the strangest things I've ever read, why on earth would covering the design of the phone make it equal to a generic Android device? Did you really purchase the iPhone 5 based solely on its design? Do you think others do?

    On topic: I use nothing, no screen protector or anything. If it scratches, it scratches. I don't have OCD and I'm not planning on selling it. Although I'm looking at buying a Lifeproof Fre case in order to not having to worry if the kids get a hold of it.

    I really don't know why so many get so personal about others' choices for cases. Really if you choose to have a naked phone or full protection, that's your choice and so be it.

    I have a white phone with a slim case and glass protector. That's what works best for me and I'm happy to share in case someone else also is looking for the same type of set up. But I surely don't get riled up if someone else prefers a black phone in an Otterbox. These posts that start personally attacking others over their case choices are really absurd.

    My black iP5 rotates through 3 cases currently.

    ~ Blue OtterBox Commuter
    ~ Gunmetal Spigen Neo Hybrid EX
    ~ Military Green SwitchEasy Tones

    I'm using the front and back shields that shipped with the Spigen and an orange Spigen jelly home button.

    No -- because most people are more comfortable with the iOS, they're invested in Apple's ecosystem, etc. Yes, Apple has the reputation of manufacturing well designed phones, but if their software sucked, their products wouldn't sell. The minimalism of Apple's hardware is what draws me to them at first site -- but the fluidity and simplicity of iOS is what keeps me to continue using iOS products in the long run.

    My point is, whether I'm his "dad" or not -- it seems rather shallow and, quite frankly, stupid to criticize someone for protecting their phone with a case claiming that it is big and ugly! At the end of the day it doesn't detract from the wonderful experience iOS has to offer.
