Best iPhone 5C Cases Roundup
Best iPhone 5C cases - We pick-out some of the best cases on the market today
You'd be forgiven for thinking that iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S cases would fit Apple's colourful iPhone 5C, but you'd be wrong because Apple's iPhone 5C has its own unique dimensions. Therefore, to ensure you get a perfect fit you'll need to buy a bespoke case designed for the iPhone 5C.
We've previously picked out some of the best cases for Apple's iPhone 5S and we've now done the same for the lower-priced iPhone 5C. It only seems fair to include Apple's own official case, but we've also picked out some more affordable alternatives and a couple of other interesting cases for you to checkout.
Anyway, enough with the chit-chat and on with our list of the best iPhone 5C cases.
The Official Route (£25)
Many of you will have chosen to buy the iPhone 5C because of its vibrant colour range. Apple are aware of this and their official case protects your precious smartphone without taking away its colourful nature.
As you'd expect from an Apple product the silicone case fits the iPhone 5C perfectly, with all the necessary ports and openings, and it's very grippy in the hands. However, official Apple products don't come cheap and the official iPhone 5C will set you back £25.
We've also found that bits of dust get into the back of the smartphone through the exposed holes and silicone cases do tend to get a bit grubby overtime. But it's an Apple product and therefore a worthy inclusion.
Great value alternative (£8.99 with added freebies)
Ringke produce a range of best selling cases for Apple's iPhone and their Fusion iPhone 5S case has received glowing reviews across the board. The good news is that they've now released a version for the iPhone 5C.
It's the world's thinnest, clearest, and hardest hybrid case which offers all around protection for your smartphone, including the all-important Retina display. For £8.99 you can't go wrong and you'll currently also get a FREE screen protector and a leather flip case bundled in.
The Ringke Fusion is our favourite case for the iPhone 5C, or any iPhone for that matter, because it offers the best combination of features and value. Oh did we forget to mention you can also personalise the case with the included guide template.
Maximum protection (£17.50)
Those with active lifestyles, or those with a tendency to damage their beautiful new smartphone, might be interested in Griffin's Survivor Military Grade Case for the iPhone 5C.
Griffin have years of experience producing tough cases for smartphones and are continuously evolving their product range. This latest creation is independently tested and is likely to survive anything thrown at it including dirt, sand, rain, shock, vibration and a host of other environmental factors.
It's built from a shatter-resistant polycarbonate frame which is clad in rugged, shock-absorbing silicone. You also get a built-in screen protector, heavy duty clip and it seals all of the smartphones ports. The coolest thing of all is that it's been "Designed and tested to meet or exceed US Department of Defense Standard 810F".
Genuine Leather (£18.95)
Melkco are a company heaped in prestige and they only produce cases of the absolute highest quality. Over the years we've got our hands on a number of their genuine leather cases and we've never been disappointed.
They've now released their popular Jacka range for the iPhone 5C and it's available in a number of stunning colours including Orange, Black, Green and even in a Crocodile Print pattern. It offers full protection for your smartphone and every case is stitched by hand.
It's worth paying £18.95 for Melkco's case because you get guaranteed quality and can also be 100% sure you're getting genuine leather, which isn't the case with a lot of the cheaper alternatives on the market.
