Industrial Metal Mesh Guard Case for iPhone® 5/5s/SE - Black
Keep your Apple iPhone® 5/5s protected from the wear and tear of daily use with this Industrial Metal Mesh Guard Case for the iPhone 5/5s from Monoprice!
This tough case is constructed using a polycarbonate inner shell and a steel mesh layer that is riveted to the inner PC shell. The two materials combine to provide superior shock protection to keep your phone safe from drops and falls. The case has cutouts on the sides for the controls and camera lens and on the back for the camera lens and flash.

Tough - Again, it's actual metal mesh, so it's pretty strong
Ease of Use - It's easy to put on/take off and still holds the phone securely
Front Protection - The edges are pretty flush with the front surface (perhaps that is a pro for some people). If you set the phone face-down on a surface, it will be resting on the screen. Even though I use a screen protector, I don't need it getting scratched up every time I set my phone down on my desk the wrong way. I wish the edges protruded just barely further forward so the case would be the point of contact.
Edges - As another reviewer stated, there is at least 1 spot with a semi-sharp edge
Easy of Use
CONS: Front Protection
PROS: This is stylish and substantial. The metal is real metal.
CONS: As noted before there is some rough metal and it gets caught, and is now beginning to pull the metal edges out making it rougher. That said it s not too bad and still a very cool case.
PROS: Nice style and good protection. Goes on easy.
CONS: Overly large and high contrast (white on black) monoprice logo. Sharp edge above rear camera lens opening. Hurts and gets stuck on things.
PROS: Fairly cheap and rugged
CONS: The area around the top is very thin (where the camera lens is) and it is not finished. I ripped two pockets and have stopped using. Not worth messing with for $10. I would never buy this again!
PROS: Looks very nice
CONS: Poor design and construction.
Rough edges and screws snag fabric
