5. Photive Hybrid Bumper Case
The Photive Hybrid Bumper case resembles the usual bumper cases that you might have used for your 3GS or 4. With some really accurate cutouts and changes, the Photive Hybrid case comes equipped to protect the iPhone 5/5s from dust, scruffs, scratches, and also promises protection under drops. Of course, we're not so sure about the “drops” but it's a pretty good case.
Early reviewers pointed out that the case has some problem with cutouts but then, the case has been updated since. A best-buy for a under $20 case.
