Choosing the Right Case Mate iPhone 5/5s Cases

Case Mate has a whole variety of iPhone 5/5s cases to choose from. Interestingly, it’s often the range of choice that makes us mad: give me too many, and I’ll probably be confused about the whole thing. When you take a look at Otterbox, there’s clearly a very little choice. You can easily pick one based on whatever it is: budget, protection, ultimate care, etc.

But when it comes to Case Mate, you get loaded with options. It’s cool because Case-Mate is an insanely popular case maker for the iPhone. So we thought we’ll draw up what’s in the catalog so that choosing becomes easy.

Choosing the Right Case for your iPhone 5/5s

Form meets function

The good thing about Case Mate is that it offers variety in large numbers. But to begin your selection, choose one or more of the following:

Your budget

The Case Mate cases range from as low as $20 to as much as $70 for an iPhone 5 case. If budget is not the first thing on your mind, you can probably browse through the catalog with other ideas in mind. And even if you’ve got a budget of, say, $35 or $40, you have plenty of options to choose from.

Your Purpose

Are you looking to have a case that’s slim, thin, light-weight and provides a decent level of protection for your iPhone 5? The Fun, Artistic and Slim cases like Barely There would fit the purpose perfectly. But then, if you’re looking for some really good protection, the Rugged and the Military Grade iPhone 5 cases would be the best choices.


If you’re looking for a stylish case, you can go for those designer prints. The artist collection is huge and amazing. Of course, you don’t have to worry about protection either because all the artistic cases are good enough in terms of sturdiness and durability. They protect your iPhone 5 well enough.
