I am not sure what made me think it but I though the word dual meant it was going to be both a phone case and a guard. It is only a guard that goes around the edge of the phone. So I guess it would protect your phones edges... but not the back at all. I have not put it on my phone as I will continue to use the 5 case that might not fit perfectly but is protecting the back at least until I can find a better 5 c case.
Great little bumper for the price. Quite a deal. The only reason I didn't give it 10 stars is that the hole for the charging port is not big enough to fit the lightning charger I purchased from MonoPrice as the same time. My wife no longer uses the bumper for this sole reason.
PROS: Maintains colorful look of the iPhone 5c.
Helps to grip the otherwise slippery plastic iPhone 5c.
CONS: Hole for charging port does not accommodate the chargers sold by MP.
Overall it is a good bumper style case for the iPhone 5C. This is a great option for people who want a minimal case and want to be able to put there phone down on a table without worrying if the phone will get scratched.
PROS: Nice looking, aligns with the bottom well. Great Price.
CONS: It would be nice if the case had a tighter fit.
