5.0 out of 5 stars Another quality product by Amazon!, October 3, 2012
This review is from: AmazonBasics Clear Cover Case with Screen Protector for iPhone 5 (Black Rim) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I purchased this in black along with Amazon's own TPU case and both were surprisingly good.

Pros:
Great fit. It's snug and keeps the sleek look of the iPhone5.
The back is a clear, hard plastic that shows off the amazing back of the iPhone5. The sides are made out of TPU(?)
There is a lip design that allows the phone from touching the surface when faced down.
Holes for camera and lock screen are perfect. Buttons line up and has enough resistance to avoid accidental presses.
Comes with an anti glare screen protector (I cannot review this because I already have one on but it seems to line up well with the phone)
No obtrusive branding!

Cons:
The plastic back *may* be prone to scuffs (speaking only from previous experience with similar cases)
Large cutout on the bottom (this is very minor and may not be a Con for many users)
NEEDS MORE COLOR OPTIONS!

If you're one of those looking to show off the natural look of your new iPhone5 but also want substantial protection, then this is definitely the case for you. I'd order another one if they made it in red!

is the clear back removable? or at least can possibly be removed without destroying the frame? i really want a very basic bumper-style case that is of amazon's quality/. thanks!

@Re2st Clear back is not removable. As for bumpers, I would recommend Poetic brand.

@Johnny Unfortunately, my best cam is my iPhone. I tried using my webcam but did not look good. It's very similar to Griffin's Reveal case though.

is the screen protector a film or a semi-hard plastic covering? also, is there any chance of dirt getting between the hard plastic and the back of the actual phone, rubbing together and causing scratches?

Hello,

Sorry for the late response but the back is a semi hard plastic covering. I haven't had issue of dust going in my phone because the case does feel flush against the back of the phone. Just make sure to wipe the case every time before putting it on and it should be no problem.

I was wondering if the case blocks the flash of the camera? I have noticed with many iphone users that their pictures turn out blurry. This is due to the case they are using. Do your pictures turn out clear of fuzzy when using the flash? Thanks!
