Patterned Cases and Covers for iPhone 5
Since its much-hyped release in 2012, the Apple iPhone 5 has enjoyed much success. To offer protection to the phone with an appealing look, manufacturers of smartphone cases produce patterned cases and covers for iPhone 5.
Patterned cases of all kinds are made for the iPhone 5. There are polka dots, stripes, checks, floral patterns and many others. Patterned iPhone 5 covers are made in all styles, including book-style, shell and pouch, and are made from materials that include leather, silicon, plastic and neoprene.
When choosing a patterned iPhone 5 cover, the look you want your phone to have and the level of protection you require are your two primary considerations.
Extreme protection can be achieved with a robust iPhone 5 cover. However, these cases are often chunky and obstruct the look of the phone. A lightweight minimalist cover will protect the look of your iPhone 5, but may provide less protection.
Patterned plastic cases for iPhone 5
iPhone 5 cases and covers that are made of plastic create a glassy look for the handset. A rigid plastic case/cover for iPhone 5 is often made of thin plastic that reveals the phone's sleek design. However, plastic iPhone 5 covers can be brittle and can crack easily on impact. This is not always the case, check the durability and quality of the model before you buy.
Patterned silicon, rubber and gel cases
Good impact protection is achieved by silicone iPhone cases .
Patterned cases for iPhone 5 smartphones made of rubber, silicone and gel can absorb much of the impact when the phone is dropped, helping to prevent any damage to the phone.
A range of silicon covers for iPhone 5 are made with patterned bumpers. These fit around the edge of the phone to protect it from impacts with a colourful look. Some silicon and rubber cases have a textured finish to give your phone better grip.
