        Comments about Hardshell Clear Case With Soft Edges for iPhone 5 (Translucent With Light Gray Accent):

        After DAYS of online research, I bought this iPhone 5 because,

        1. Material/Construction: Won't scratch the back of you iPhone 5 (no prob 3 weeks and going) and itself is pretty scruff resistant. No corner piece breaking off.

        2. I have monitor headphones with a wide stereo/audio jack. It's hard to tell from images before buying. The bottom cut-out is as close to being (tho not completely) flush with the phone body. My monitor headphones' jack fits and goes in securely and music plays on them, with only a thin gap between jack and phone body.

        3. Style: Minimalist and Translucent (Tho not transparent) Only wish is that colors and translucent models were also avaialble. I like colors. FYI, the back is ever-so-slightly curved (convex) around the edges.

        4. Gripping on sides are good (KEY), and overall the right amount. The stripes on the back for styling do add an extra bit of drag as opposed to a 100% smooth plastic back. Pro: traction when laying the phone on a table on its back. Con: sliding in/out of fitted pants' pockets not a 100% sliding operation.

        5. The rubber lips is generous, while maintaing the slim profile. I feel safe when placing my phone face down on a flat surface (But I rarely do that anyway to hear alamrs or see alerts).

        Note: I was curious about but didn't get to see the black model which has a black tinted translucent back that would have made the iPhone 5's back harder to see. I personally would have liked a black trims on clear (non black-tinted) model.

          Comments about Hardshell Clear Case With Soft Edges for iPhone 5 (Translucent With Black Accent):

          This is a great case for iPhone5 but please beware what is 5 star for me may be 1 star for someone else (Einstein's law of relativity). I rate this case 5 star out of 5 based on my needs. I was looking for a case with slim design such that it does not make the sleek design of iPhone 5 bulkier and at the same time provide some level of protection and not easily scratched and I found it in this case. It is not bullet proof, crash proof or if-dropped-from-the-second-story-of-a-building-will-not-break proof. The only drawback, again it is relative, is that the case is smoke colored. In other words, it will not show the beautiful black backing of the iPhone5 completely. Make your own decision!
