Armored Case for iPhone® 5/5s - Metallic Gray
Protect your iPhone 5/5s from drops and the abuse of daily use with this Armored Case from Monoprice!
This two-piece case includes a TPU inner sleeve and a polycarbonate outer shell. The two materials work together to provide superior protection for your phone in the event of a drop. The hard outer shell disperses shock forces over the entire shell, thereby reducing the point amplitude of any shock force. The inner TPU sleeve then absorbs the dispersed shock waves, preventing them from doing any damage to your phone.
The outer polycarbonate shell is coated in rubberized paint, for a smooth, comfortable feeling. Cutouts on the case allow access to the connections and button extenders allow manipulation of the phone's controls.

Pros: Sturdy, light profile, inexpensive, provides excellent protection
Cons: Not so easy to disassemble.
Great product, although you need to figure out what is the best easiest way to put it apart, the control buttons are in the way.

Pros: GREAT protection
Looks great (had several compliments)
Cons: More colors PLEASE =)
I believe I've had this case for 2 years and it has been SLAMMED on the tile and stomped on (don't ask!) and the only thing that happened to it was the panel with the Monoprice word on it broke off. I couldn't even tell it was broken though so I kept it on there (it's been 11 months since that incident). About a week ago the thin strips on the bottom of the case at connector/speaker area broke probably due to that Monoprice emblem breaking off. Absolutely no damage to my phone through all of this. It has also been dropped several times. And the case looks almost brand new I should add. I would recommend this case to anyone and I recommend Monoprice to everyone!

Pros: -Definitely a solid case
-Slim, stylish design
Cons: -Doesn't work with tempered glass screen protectors
-Headphone jack hole is too small
Solid case, as I've dropped it several times onto hard surfaces with no damage whatsoever, with a very appealing design overall. It isn't too bulky so it fits in my pocket nicely. It is also easy to remove from my pocket, as it isn't too grippy and rubberized. However there are some moderate flaws
As note in the cons, it isn't compatible with tempered glass screen protectors. Mine is squeezed on one corner and causes the glass to lift up off the phone slightly.
Another issue is the headphone jack. I have a retractable audio cable (purchased from Monoprice nonetheless) that is too thick to fit, which is a big issue because I listen to music in the car for roughly an hour each day. I tried squeezing it in the a few times, and ended up breaking the bottom outer shell of the case.

Pros: Offers good protection from everyday use. Easy to install. Inexpensive. Nice to hold. Doesn't add to profile (too much)
Cons: The thin strips on bottom of case at connector/speaker area is very fragile. Have broken two cases on my 5s.
Once this breaks, rest of case will follow. Most recently to bottom panel with Monoprice logo broke off
If you buy this case, order a couple of spares.
