10 cool iPhone 5 cases

0. phoneArena posted on 13 Sep 2012, 06:14

The newly-announced iPhone 5 may not be available for purchase yet, but that doesn't stop accessory makers from offering iPhone 5 protective cases already. In fact, some of the new designs are now up for pre-order for all those impatient future iPhone 5 owners. Care to check some of them?...

Next time, when the next installation of iPhone is about to be released, we better ask the iPhone case makers what the phone will look like. It's amazing to know how iPhone 5 released just yesterday, got 10 cases already...in just a day!!!!

That is where all the mock-ups came from, they were for case makers.

Seriously??? This are the cool iphone 5 cases??? There are tons of much better cases for the 4/4s duo so I don't see where are the news... Honestly the only really cool is the last one (Hard Candy) and if we try very hard, the barely there (it's nice but I would use coooooool to describe it)

as every iphone has a case why apple doesnt put already a case a very huge rubber big large ugly bumper to protect the expensive gadget bought at credit on 24 months ? then why to make an iphone slim if eveyone is adding this piece of ugly black dirty gum ? isnt it more fun to carry this fragile piece of glass without any protection just for the pleasure to see it completely broken at the first fall ? to discover that the genius at the design team never made a drop test as they are done in each and every other electronic company ?

"Premium" material covered by cheap plastic. And oh noes, your precious Apple logo will be covered so you won't impress your barista friends...rolls eyes

These are pretty cool but you missed a good one. It's called Icobat and it's a wallet, case and stand for you Phone 5.

Guess what, we think we've just found not one, not two, but SEVEN things that could have made the iphone 5 an even better smartphone,

- iPhone 5's 4-inch screen too small?
Here's a solution

- Improved, more stylish design
Don't get us wrong - we love the iphone5's design, and we're sure it is still the same since the first iPhone, but a lot of folks are complaining that the appearance is almost unchanged from the Iphone 3, Iphone 3Gs, iPhone 4 or even the iPhone 4s.

- Expandable storage
For most users, having internal memory is more than enough, however, it's always appreciated when you can actually expand this storage space with at least 16 or 32GB more! You like storing all your media on your handset? Well, if the iPhone 5 had a microSD card slot, you wouldn't have anything to worry about. Still, we're sure that if you use your internal storage wisely, you shouldn't have any problems with it either.

- Customized UI
There, we said it! We're actually starting to believe that the same UI looks found on each and every iPhone devices may become boring for users, and thus have a negative effect on the bottom lines for Apple.

- More megapixels
Sure, iPhone have similar sensor with iPhone 4s just a little compact, but its 8MP sensor doesn't allow you to use "lossless zoom" like on the Nokia 808 PureView with its gigantic 41MP sensor.

- Better screen ratio
most of the current iPhone users will loved the new taller screen but the weird ratio will give you bad movie experience

I just want to say i am not satisfied with these ten so called cool cases. Aluminum Metal case is the perfect cool case in my mind. I picked up some for myself in a web site named case2case , you can judge them.
