Case-Mate Tough vs. Tough Xtreme? iP5 (Xtreme review and pictures)
- date: March 27, 2013
I just got my iphone 5 32GB last week and after several purchases I'm still on the hunt for the right case. My last iPhone was a 3G, with an Incase slider on it that protected the phone decently against the many drops it endured, somehow.
My biggest priorities for a case are:
1. drop protection
2. minimal bulk (Otterbox Armor and Defender cases were too bulky for me)
3. a simple aesthetic, monochrome but not just black/gray (I hate the bright contrasting colors, and this seems to be the current trend in cases)
I don't much care about scratches or open port access. I got talked into trying out the new Otterbox Armor, but after trucking it around for a day I came to my senses and realized it was a bit overkill for my needs, and not to mention HUGE!
I bought the Speck Candyshell from the Apple store tonight, but I am not loving it - too slippery and the Grip version is ugly as sin, plus I came across a used Candyshell Grip
