First off, this case is awesome for the price. Would recommend for anyone that was thinking about an Otterbox but didn't want the bulk of one. To start off, I ordered the rust colored case, which is basically orange. The orange and black pop very nicely on this case. The size is perfect for optimal protection without the bulk of some of the other cases out there. I added a quad lock universal mount to this case because I had the quad lock case for my iPhone 4 before this and invested in all the adapters. The universal mount fit on the UAG case both functionally and stylishly without any negatives I can mention.

The only negative part about this case, which is why I took away the star, is the bottom of the case near the speakers, lightning outlet, and audio input is very weak in construction. Meaning, that the case itself is very solidly built and doesn't move or bend when holding it. However, the bottom of the case near these outlets is very flimsy plastic (most likely because there is so much going on down there). If I ever have to grab my case around this area, the rubbery plastic bends to my grip and I feel as though this area will not last a year if I continue to handle it this way. The orange part of the case is very hard plastic but the black area is a soft rubber. The only thing the bottom of this case is made of is the rubbery black part and is easily manipulated by your touch. I think its important for the bottom of the new iPhone 5 to be constructionally sound because thats where everything connects to the phone. It should be able to protect the phone in the instance of a blow to that area and be able to be handled day to day without it wearing down. I hope UAG improves the construction of this area in the future as I feel it is a weak point in the case.

In September of last year I bit my lip as I made the switch from the beloved Android Samsung Galaxy S3 and purchased the iPhone 5 off ebay. Upon receiving it, I thought I would have to conform to the standard practice of buying a clunky otter box. I thought to myself, If I wanted a brick, why not keep the S3? Hence my search and finding of this case. I read the reviews and they seemed to point in the right direction. I ordered it and upon receiving it, I was not at first impressed. The Packaging was good, but the case felt so... light. The case requires a bit of manipulation to get onto the phone and if You have a screen protector, make sure it's been on for a while. Once it was on, I noticed how it did not add much to the size of the phone and fit like a glove. The edge of the case that goes around the screen is raised slightly, If you were to drop it on the screen side, this would help prevent the phones screen from hitting the ground. Knock on the phone case and you'll hear the sound of the material absorbing the shock. I'd never purposely put the case to the test but I can say that I have dropped the phone MANY times since this case has been on. I've dropped it screen down, on it's back and on the edges. The result is the same every time, I slowly pick up the phone and cringe to see the damage - There is none. This case looks sexy (I have the rust, basically orange) and has held up since the beginning of October. No cracks or defects to be found. I fully recommend this case. If you're like me and won't be deep sea diving or working around lava, then ditch the otter box and come to the UAG side. You won't be sorry.

******UPDATE 4/24/14
Just wanted to chime in and say that this case is STILL going strong and protecting my phone. I've dropped A LOT more since my initial review and the case has held its on. My phone is protected and scratch free. IF you want great protection and a non bulky case, this is the way to go.

I like this case. It's slim but appears to provide great protection. The reason I give it a 3 rating is the bottom portion (by the home button) of the case is a bit flimsy. It doesn't say in place very well and is constantly moving when you are handling the phone. If they fixed this it would be a 5 rating!!

I was getting bored with my old phone case, and this case looked rugged yet it was cheap enough not to break the bank.

All of the edges are made out of a silicone that protects the phone from drops and scrapes.

Although the back of the case is indented to form a design, it does not add a lot of bulk onto the phone.

I did not ever seem to get dirty around the rubber plastic parts, and the ports were open enough that the charging cord fit perfectly.

I would recommend this case for someone looking for protection with their iPhone 5/S, but also a sleek design.

Just sent it back. Not a bad back-of-the-phone protector and looks great, but I had gotten used to the OB Defender with my 3GS and decided to buy one for my 5 after putting the phone into this case. The feeling of zero front protection except a little ridge around the edge wasn't what I was ready to accept once I had the phone in the case. I shove my phone in my pocket, front pocket of dress pants and rear pocket of jeans, and the extra rigidity of the Defender is way more piece of mind. That totally exposed large glass face looks like trouble waiting to happen. Taking the extra front protection out of the picture, though, the UAG case is the most protective-appearing case I've felt. I'd probably be using it today if I had never owned a Defender. I'm not a professional case reviewer, but it just felt sturdy. The raised areas of the case scream out "shock absorber", which is exactly what one wants.

The Defender isn't flawless, mind you! Our daughter dropped a 4S in a Defender from 3 to 4 feet and the screen shattered. Don't expect the same grade of protection from a Defender for your 5 that you had when one was standing watch over your 3GS. Maybe the 3-series was built better and Apple cut durability corners for the style-over-substance they're all about.

The Defender I bought from Amazon is OtterBox Defender Series Case for iPhone 5 - Retail Packaging - Black. Yeh - it's plain black and not as unique-looking as this UAG series, but I'll opt for function over form...
