This is an excellent case that has classic good looks and offers a lot of protection for your iPhone 5 ...

The design of the Citta Slide-In Protective case is very innovative. The last case I reviewed for Acase was a leather one. It was quite elegant, but needed a bit of breaking in before it would be fully functional. This one is very user-friendly and you are good to go in a matter of seconds. It's a simple matter to get the iPhone 5 in the case. Simply pull apart two sides as if you were looking into a billfold, tuck your iPhone in, and release. The fit is snug while you have open access to all the ports and features. There are no specific cut-outs save for the iSight camera.
This case definitely passes in the protection department. The polycarbonate (PC) outer shell is tough and impact-resistant. Polycarbonate will scratch, but the application of Japanese paint has obviously remedied that situation. FYI, Japanese paints are among the best in the world. Nice choice and it gives the shell an sleek look, while adding that much-needed protection. There is a raised front lip around the front edge that will protect the screen if you place in face down on any surface. Mind you, this will offer up some protection in case of drops, but there are always those freak accidents.
The slate gray case has a basket weave raised design that makes it easy to grip. The edges are beveled, a feature that makes it easier to hold. The distinctive Acase logo is centered on the lower front. The polycarbonate shell isn't going to scratch (I tried) nor will fingerprints and dirt adhere to its surface, something that I appreciate. This is the type of case that's functional, yet practical. It's a decent case that will take a beating while offering up reasonably good protection for your phone. I really like this case!
