I’ve always been a sucker for thin iPhone cases, more so when I changed from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5. The phone without a case is so sleek and pretty, and I think that it’s a pity to put it in a case, which only takes away from the nice feeling of holding a naked iPhone. Then again, the first time I ever “allowed” my iPhone to go naked, it had to accidentally fall to the marble floor. So much for that then!
So, the guys at Snugg generously sent a Snugg iPhone 5 Ultra Thin Case my way so I could try it out and see how it performs. (Thanks again, guys!) Let me go ahead and tell you about it. Obviously, we have our individual preferences for iPhone cases, but I always look at these factors:
- Ability to protect the phone
When they say ultra thin, they mean ultra thin. Believe it or not, the Snugg iPhone 5 Ultra Thin Case almost doesn’t add anything in terms of thickness and weight. That means that my phone can still fit in my trusty old phone pouch, which I like using when going out since it adds protection from God knows what’s in my bag.
Looking at the case alone, you see how thin it is, and yes, it fits the phone like a body glove.
The Snugg iPhone 5 Ultra Thin Case is made of non-slip material, which has a silicon-y feel to it. While it takes away the sleek feel of the aluminum body of the iPhone, it does give you reassurance that your phone won’t suddenly slip out of your hands – or slide off the table.
To be honest, initially, I was concerned about getting a lot of visible scratches on the case within a few days; but it’s been a week or so now that I have used the case and the phone has been everywhere from the mall to the hospital – not to mention whatever surface I find in the house – and so far, no scratches yet!
I would have liked to test how the case protects the phone from a fall, but I think I’ll pass. Unless someone wants to offer an iPhone 5 to test in the case?
So how about the looks? Now I’m not too finicky when it comes to aesthetics. Unless the case truly does look outrageous, I’m rather easy to please in this matter. Here’s the back of the case.
And here’s my phone wearing the case.
I don’t have to say it, but I still will: I love how it looks! While I am partial to the color red, you have to admit that the simplicity of Snugg iPhone 5 Ultra Thin Case makes it an excellent accessory for practically anyone.
Here’s an even better thing: this case costs only $9.99! Taking all things in consideration, I would go as far as to say that it should be one’s go-to iPhone case.
If you can’t stand red, the Snugg iPhone 5 Ultra Thin Case comes in 12 different colors, so you have a lot to choose from. It also has two versions – one for the iPhone 5 and one for the iPhone 5S.
If you’re looking for a new iPhone 5/5S case that’s thin, looks good, and protects your phone from scratches, then why not take a look at the Snugg iPhone 5 Ultra Thin Case? You can buy it here.
