Sewell Monk Magnet Wallet Case ($22)

Sewell Monk Magnet Wallet Case 2

Here’s a clever idea that tries to solve the classic problem with folio-style cases – the fact it’s awkward to take calls with the cover flapping open. With this case, there’s a hard shell inside that your iPhone 5 or 5S is meant to slide into, but it also lifts easily out of the cover and snaps back into place thanks to magnets. The cover and the back of the shell are finished in synthetic leather. It also aims to be a wallet replacement, so there are three slots for cards and ID, and a big money pocket.

Incipio Stashback Case ($9)

Incipio 279

This rugged case is hard on the outside and flexible on the inside. It’s crafted from a rigid plextonium frame with a soft silicone core. It also has a secret in the shape of a clever flip compartment, one that can be used to conceal credit cards, cash, or IDs. There are also cut-outs for your phone’s ports, camera, and power switch, and tactile button covers for volume and power.

Speck CandyShell Grip Case ($19+)

Speck 324

A striking look, a protective design–what more could you want in a case? The CandyShell combines a shock absorbent layer inside to protect against bumps with a tough outer shell of polycarbonate. There are also ridges to create a color contrast pattern and enhance your grip of the iPhone. The button covers work well, the cut-outs are precise, and you get all-round protection. You can buy this case in various color combos.

Trent Trentium case ($16)

Trent Trentium case 2

A slim case that offers decent protection is relatively rare so Trent’s offering is definitely worth checking out. It combines a hard inner case with a built-in screen protector, a soft TPU layer, and a hard polycarbonate back cover that can be changed (it comes in black, silver, or gold). This case can also handle the odd splash, but not full immersion. The port covers are stiff and the Home button protection can impact on how easy it is to use Touch ID, but it’s a good all-rounder.

Caseology Bumper case ($8)

Caseology Bumper case 2

Simple, basic, and cheap is what you get with these malleable TPU cases from Caseology. You’ve got a choice of seven colors, each with a subtle, shiny pearl coating. It’s a slim case, but there is a lip to protect the screen should it land face down and the corners can handle a drop impact. The cut-outs are fairly precise, and it’s quite a minimalist design overall.
