Smartphone stocking fillers: The best iPhone 5 cases



Smartphone stocking fillers: The best iPhone 5 cases

The Christmas holidays are coming up fast, and if you don’t act fast, before you know it, you’ll be one of those desperate folks scrabbling for the last items on the shelves. Or, you could just our advice and order some of the items in our gadget gift guides from the comfort of your home. Today, we’re taking a look at the best iPhone 5 cases to stuff in the stockings of Apple fans. Read on to see just what they are…

Speck’s PixelSkin series are great ways to add a bit more grip to your delicate metal smartphone, with a pleasant texture on the back that also makes your iPhone 5 stay firmly on the surface you’ve perched it on. Any Apple owners who’ve watched their precious iDevice slide off the side of the sofa will know what I mean,

QDOS iPhone 5 cases

QDOS’ iPhone 5 cases don’t push the boat out when it comes to design: they get the job done, fitting snugly around your blower with space for the camera and flash to peep out. But they offer some classy colour, with rich, metallic and deep hues – even one with a Union Jack on the back, if that’s your thing.

Tech21 Impact Band

It works just like the iPad mini equivalent: Tech21’s impressive orange goo lining the insides of the case acts as a proper shock absorbers. It’s barely any thicker than Apple’s colourful iPhone band, but much more protective.

Gear4 Angry Birds case

Yes, yes, Angry Birds has been around for a while now. But let’s be honest, it’s still cool. Gear4’s latest cases have been updated to match the Angry Birds Space them, and they look as cool as the game is fun.

Otterbox iPhone 5 case

The Tech21 case can survive the odd tumble to the street floor: the Otterbox is the one you want if you’re the sort to accidentally throw your iPhone 5 out of the window of your office. Surprisingly, it looks good in the process, with a deep blue and green lining. There’s even a belt clip for the severely butter-fingered.
