10 weird iPhone 5s cases that will make your beloved handset unrecognizable

10 weird iPhone 5s cases that will make your beloved handset unrecognizable
We plunged into the depths of the interwebs in search of the most unusual, bizarre, and sometimes really unpractical cases for Apple’s iPhone 5s. Surprisingly, it turns out that many of these weird cases are available to buy at well-known locations like Amazon and eBay.

Of course, not everyone likes smartphone cases. But lots of users just feel like something’s missing if their handset is naked and not protected against eventual drops and scratches. So, if you’re one of these users, you have an iPhone 5s, and want a case unlike most of the options out there, we might have just what you need.

Each and every iPhone 5s case that we’re presenting below will definitely draw attention, essentially making your Apple device unrecognizable (at least when viewed from behind). Most of them are also compatible with the older iPhone 5. 

You can certainly comment to let us know if you’d ever want to use any of these cases (or, who knows, perhaps you already own one). Also, make sure to zoom in to see all the details.

I think weird is an understatement.. Don't get me wrong weird has its place and can be fun and good, but....these covers...

It looks like definite proof that the radiation has leaked out of Fukushima and is all over Japan...

I don't get what's so lovely about OtterBox. They are just super bulky and ugly. And I'm sure that any case would give the same protection if you just drop the phone.

The commuter is the slimmer one, it made my RAZR roughly as thick as a Droid x so the commuters arent bad, And they are quite protective, kept my RAZR going for 2 1/2 years until the M8 replaced it. Although when I had my iphone 4s I used the Apple bumper and invisible shield extreme front and back, now that was one slim solution.

Been using Momax iCase Pros without screen protector for the last three years on my last three phones and all of them looks like new at the time of getting replaced. Not to mention they are way slimmer than Otterbox's cases.

Words of advice. Ditch Otter Box and get LifeProof. Way better than any Otter Box.

I've been running my Nokia N9 for over 2 years. I've never used screen protectors or cases. Just some really small scratches on the display and the body of the phone is pretty much undamaged.

No i dont use any sh*ty cases, but screen protectors are a must for me. I can compromise a bit clarity over permanent scratches on glass... Also there are many crystal clear screen protectors at amazon.

Japan.... Nothing more can be expected. Why these iFans ruin this beautiful phone with ugly plastic cases.

What in the foreign hell?? I thought the creepy factor was at its peak when I saw the isopod and the sushi case. But the hand case... you'd probably get begged to take it off. I'm all about creativity, but some Japanese sh*t leaves you with your head sideways for a while.

The fleshlight iPad case is truly for those forever alone and you can share it with all your buddies. Lol

The food cases actually look cool and realistic. If I had one of those food cases, I would just lay my phone face down on the table and everyone that comes by would be tricked into thinking that it is real food...

At least no one would be as likely to steal the phone.

My friend's girlfriend has the lip case. I always wonder how it fits in her pocket.
