Best Slim iPhone 5 Case
Sometimes you don’t need a bulky phone case. Slim, low profile cases not only look sleek, but they’re easier to hold, easier to slide in and out of your pocket, and are usually cheaper than the bulkier varieties. Below you’ll find the best slim iPhone 5 cases under $20.
Ringke Slim Hard Case – Matte Finish
The Ringke might possibly be the best slim iPhone 5 case simply because of its super low profile and low price point. It comes in a variety of colors and is made out of smooth hard plastic which will easily slide in and out of your pocket thanks to the matte finish. Unlike rubber cases that are difficult to remove from your pocket, a matte finish glides easy while simultaneously providing grip. If you are looking for a low profile non rubberized case at below $9 this is your best option.
Mercury SQ1 Slim Fit Flexible TPU Case
THE SQ1 is slightly thicker than the most slim iPhone 5 cases, however the TPU material allows this to absorb a bit more shock than other low profile cases. Additionally, this case is slightly raised around the edges which will introduce a bit of added protection when you drop your phone. This a sleek case with a slightly glossy finish.
SPIGEN SGP1008 Slim Armor Case – Gunmetal Finish
The Spigen Slim Armor Case is constructed using a blend of polycarbonate and TPU. It offers great protection for a low profile case and because of the TPU/Polycarbonate blend, this case will absorb a decent amount of shock for its size. If you’re looking for a manly sleek gunmetal case, this is definitely worth consideration.
LUVVITT Clear Anti-Scratch Case
The iPhone 5 is a beautiful phone, and I can understand why some people don’t want to cover it up with a case. For those that like looking at their phone, an anti-scratch clear case is just what the doctor ordered. This case is under $13 and offers decent protection for a super low profile case.
