iPhone 5 case protects against extreme temperatures, looks good doing it

While smartphone cases come in all shapes and sizes, pretty much all of them are meant to protect our handsets from dents, drops, and scratches. The Salt cases, however, are a bit different as they provide resistance against extreme temperatures as well. Why is that important? Well, a smartphone may shut itself down and/or get seriously damaged if exposed to temperatures beyond a certain threshold. The iPhone, for example, works best from 32° to 95° F, but may malfunction if it gets way too cold or too hot. Moreover, excessive temperatures may seriously shorten any battery's life span...

So its hardware or software should be optimized for such temperatures cases. Why need Case? And who keeps their phones in such temperatures often.

Look closely at the 5th picture. The case has a built in case to cover the sides of the iPhone and hold it in place. It looks like the only opening on the sides is right by the volume and vibrate switch. Hopefully, they've done enough testing to make sure that opening isn't too big to cause the zipper to rub and strip the paint off of the aluminum.

Actually, I designed it and as the poster said above you can clearly see that the holder for the phone protects against the zipper. We have tested these case for over a year and never had a single scratch from the zipper.
