LifeProof Cases For the iPhone 5S Reviewed (with images) · siubachu

Lifeproof cases will protect your iphone 5s from drops and water. They only have 2 cases to choose from - the Nuud and the Fre - but when what you need is protection and not customized look, then Lifeproof is what you need.
Amy Cheung's insight:

The only difference I can tell between the Nuud and Free, is that the Nuud doesn't come with a screen protector (i.e. you can touch the screen directly) and the Fre does.

 

Both will protect from drops, water, dirt, snow and ice.  And both are waterproof for up to 2 meter competely submersed in water.

 

Be sure to check out LifeProof's water protection plan, which you can buy for an additional $10.  If your phone is damaged within a year while in a LifeProof case, you're covered.  Please check the terms on the LifeProof website to verify this before you buy though.

The Best Leather Cases for the iPhone 5S (with images) · siubachu

If leather's your thing, then getting a leather case for your iphone to go with your leather jacket would be a no-brainer. There are many leather cases to choose from on amazon for cheap. Some are even made of genuine leather!
Amy Cheung's insight:

Leather cases can feel very comfortable to touch and hold in the hand, and will make your iphone 5s look elegant as well.  Some of them double up as wallets, with slots where you can put credit cards / driver's license and bills so you'd have one less thing to carry around.  Most of these cases are cheap.  Although some are made with genuine leather, most are made from what is called "PU" leather, which is a layer of leather with a layer of polyurethane (PU) over the top which is embossed.

What Are the Best iPhone 5s Cases of 2013? (with images) · siubachu

So you just bought an iPhone 5s, and thinking to get a case to protect your valued gadget from impact or even water, as well as make your phone look unique and cool. With so many iphone cases on the market, which one should you get?
Amy Cheung's insight:

There's really no "best" when it comes to iphone 5s cases - it comes down to what an individual's needs and preferences are.  However, cases that have received a lot of positive feedback from customers should in theory be safer than cases that have received critical criticisms.  To choose a case that's right for you, look at what's out there and write down some requirements that are important to you.  Drop your phone a lot?  Then you need a case that has good shock absorption.  Go swimming alot or have had the unfortunate experience of dropping your iphone in the toilet?  Then you may want to get a waterproof case to put your mind at ease.  Watch movies on your iphone alot?  Then a case with a kickstand would be just the thing for you.  Amazon has the largest selection of iphone 5s cases you can find anywhere, plus they have lots of customer reviews that will tell you what the pros and cons of each case are.  With so much useful information available, it shouldn't be hard for you to find an iphone case (or an entire set of iphone cases) that is perfect for your needs and wants.

OtterBox Cases For the iPhone 5s (with images) · siubachu

If you tend to drop stuff frequently, then Otterbox cases would be the perfect thing for protecting your prized gadget. Choose from single-layered, double-layered and triple-layered cases depending on the protection level you need.
Amy Cheung's insight:

The Prefix and Reflex series both have only one layer of protection.  The Commuter series has 2 layers.  The Defender Series has 3 layers.  So the more often you tend to drop your phone, the more layers you need in order to absorb the impact and keep your phone intact.

 

The Preserver series for the iphone 5s just came out a few days ago, and is designed for waterproofing your iphone.  With this case on your phone, you can fully submerge it in water of up to 2 meters deep for up to half an hour.  The Preserver also protects the phone from drops of up to 2 meters high.

 

For heavy duty protection for your iphone 5s, you can't go wrong with Otterbox.

Best Cheap iPhone 5S Cases on Amazon (with images) · siubachu

Amazon has the widest selection of iphone cases anywhere.
Amy Cheung's insight:

There are lots of really cheap iphone 5s cases on amazon.  Some are priced as low as $0.01.  If you want an OK-quality iphone case that looks stunning and cheap, find the creme of the crop by limiting your amazon search to 4 stars and above, and then browse the results and look at ones that have the highest numbers of customer ratings.  You'd also want to read some of the favorable and critical reviews left by the customers of those cases before deciding.  Obviously if you pay under $10 for a case, you can't expect a lot of protection or durability, but if you don't tend to drop your phone on hard surfaces from great heights, or drop it into the water, then cheap but great looking cases may suit your needs just fine.
