Best Protective Cases for Your iPhone

are you looking for cases for your iphone 5, iphone 5s, iphone 5c or iphone4 and iphone 4s? There is a smart range of iphone cases available to not only offer your phone protection but also provide you convenience. Read on to know what is new in the iphone case industry.

Your smartphone is perhaps one of your most prized possessions both for the money you have invested in it and its usability. Naturally then, you'd like to keep it safe from damages, scratches or wear and tear of any kind. There is a whole host of protective cases that come in varied styles, colors and designs to offer an extra layer of protection to your smartphone device and also enhance its looks.

However, there is no one-size-fits-all scheme here. Since the body, shape and size of each smartphone model varies from the other, so does the pattern of protective cases. It is, therefore, important to choose a case that has a hand-in-glove fit with your smartphone.

iPhone 5 cases

The iPhone 5 is strikingly different in its looks from its predecessor, and so, you'll need a case that is specifically designed for this model. Besides the regular leather, plastic and waterproof variants, there is a wide range of iPhone 5 cases that use innovative features to enhance the usability of your smartphone device.

If you are a bit of a smartphone addict, it is likely that you suffer from battery life woes. For those who want to be able to recharge their phone's battery even on the go, the Mophie Juice Pack Air case may be the answer. It comes with 1700mAh built-in battery that can be used to recharge the phone.

And if you are still too hung-over the good old keypad to make friends with the touchscreen technology, you can opt for Nuu Minikey iPhone 5 cases that come with a full blown QWERTY keypad which can be synchronized with the phone through Bluetooth.

Some of the other options are aluminum, polycarbonate and metal cases by Life Proof Fre, Moshi, Marware, Edge Design, InnoPocket and D. Bramante. There is an extensive range of colors and designs available in each.

iPhone 5s cases

Since the iPhone 5S resembles its predecessor closely in terms of its dimensions and shape, a lot of users upgrading from iPhone 5 to 5s may be tempted to retain their old cases. But that doesn't sound like a viable plan; here's why – the 5s comes with unique features such as a fingerprint sensor and LED flash on the back camera. These are some of the highlights of this newest entrant in iPhone's line of smartphones, and the cases built for iPhone 5 will envelop these features, making them redundant.

Some of the best iPhone 5s cases are already available in the market or can be preordered online. The Incipio Kicksnap case is your best bet if you are looking for a rock-solid shell for your iPhone 5s. It also comes with a stand that can be useful when using your phone in landscape or portrait modes. The Kavaj 'Dallas' Cognac leather case can double as a protective gear and wallet, as it has slots to hold your I-cards, credits cards and cash.

iPhone 5c cases

It is for the first time that smartphone giant Apple is launching not one but two different iPhone models together – the 5s and its economy version the 5c. There is more, Apple is also launching its own line of cases for these two devices. But the colorful silicone iPhone 5c cases from Apple don't seem to be finding too many takers for its lack of detailing. However that's certainly not the only choice available to users, as a wide range of other protective cases for the 5c is already flooding the market.

There are the neo hybrid and ultra-thin polycarbonate cases from Spigen SGP that come in bright fluorescent colors and transparent frames, respectively. Then there is the scratch-free hard shell OVRMLD case, the Dual Pro case with shock-absorbing ability, and the vegan leather case from Watson that double as a wallet.

The sleeker iPhone 5C cases that offer protection to your smartphone device without making it look chunky are available in Barely There, Naked Tough, Hula, and Brushed Aluminum variants. If you want to add an element of bling to this new device, you can consider the LS Jewel Glitter cases by Ballistic that come in magenta and turquoise blue color options.

iPhone 4 cases

If you are not planning to upgrade to one of the newer smartphones offered by Apple or want to begin with a more tried and tested or affordable iPhone variants, you can still bring novelty to your phone's appearance by experimenting with the various iPhone 4 cases available in the market.

The Body Glove Icon Hybrid is one of the most cost-effective yet sturdy cases available for iPhone 4. It comes with an inner layer of gel that acts like a shock absorbent; besides, it has anti-microbial properties to keep your handset clean and germ-free. The Crystal Couture Elegante case is the best choice for adding that dazzling effect to your iPhone 4. It is studded with bright, colorful rhinestones that'll make your phone stand apart. It also comes in leopard skin and multi-color striped variants.

iPhone 4s cases

For those upgrading from an iPhone 4 to the 4s, there is little need to invest in a new case. Since the two models match precisely in terms of size, breadth, thickness and exterior keys and features, same cases can fit perfectly for both.

However, if you think a new iPhone deserves a new case, there is a wide array of iPhone 4s cases to choose from. For those who tend to spend too much time outdoors and grapple with the persistent problem of running out of battery, Mophie Juice Pack Pro case is an ideal choice.
