Chapter in this post:
The iPhone 5c has not been shipped long in Germany, but of course - as always when an iPhone with a new form factor comes onto the market - the first cases for the new model are available very quickly. In this case I started looking for the best cases and covers for the [iPhone 5c from Apple-> iphone-5c].
In practice, this search is of course divided into different requirements: Some like particularly thin cases, others are looking for outdoor cases that can survive a fall from the skyscraper or at least support the contents of the case in survival. For this reason, I am simply presenting a best-of of different cover types here and hope that I have found something for everyone with them.
The iProtect cover is a good product for lovers of silicone or TPU gel covers. Personally, I have been using this type of protective cover for several iPhone models and can only say: good protection with few visual restrictions. My iPhone will probably fall out of my hand on tiles or on the street once a day, but so far the case has withstood everything very well.
If you are more into eye-catching design, you will find your favorite in the following cases.
I admit: I am also prone to this type of flip case. I just find it very practical if you can put your iPhone in a case that can hold a bit of paper money and credit cards.
For once I was able to find a good cover that is not from iProtect. This folding case is from EasyAcc and offers additional corner protection that is not available on many other models. The stand function is also integrated here. However, there is no credit card slot.
The flip cases are of course not only available in a horizontal folding version but also with a lid that is flipped vertically.
This case is also somehow quite stylish and practical. You put the iPhone in from above and when you want it to come out, you simply pull on a tab. The Snugg case also offers a compartment for business cards or EC cards. And the case fits not only for the 5c but also for the iPhone 5 and 5s.
Of course, the bumper still has fans. But even if Apple is now getting back into the bumper business itself, there are still stylish and functional models from third-party providers.
Somehow, felt covers inspire me again and again. The fabric is easy to touch and easy to care for on the touchscreen. The designs that Almwild creates in Alpstein do the rest:
I think it's a protective cover that is more in demand by real guys: the aluminum model. It certainly offers protection for the iPhone that should not be underestimated, but for me personally the material is simply too "cold". Nevertheless, I am going to list a good aluminum cover that is suitable for the 5c:
It doesn't get any cooler than this. I think my daughter would love me if I used this case - but the rest of the world would probably think I'm nuts.
This case is not bad either:
To be honest: I looked for an outdoor cover on Amazon that really deserves its name. Perhaps something has been added to the range in the meantime, but at the time I wrote the article, nothing in the shop that really looked like an outdoor case. But as I said: Use the search function and take a look an outdoor protective cover for the iPhone 5c.
Update: The Otterbox Defender is now available for the 5c:
I was actually hoping there would already be a Lifeproof Case for the iPhone 5c. Unfortunately, this has not yet been the case. The only thing that is currently suitable as a replacement for a Lifeproof cover is the waterproof protective cover from KooPower or Smartskin:
