I’ve watched a couple of videos on Youtube where people were doing stress tests for the iPhone 5. One video showed a person scratching the front and back of his iPhone 5 with a key and hitting it with a hammer. Surprisingly, the iPhone 5 didn’t get any scratches or any dents after that. I’m not sure how much force he put into it but even if it seems the iPhone 5 survived such a drastic testing, I still don’t want to risk damaging my phone. So iPhone 5 cases are a must for me.
I received samples of ZooGue’s iPhone 5 Social Pro cases for review.
ZooGue offers cases for various tech gadgets like the iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets, and Kindle Fire.
ZooGue’s iPhone 5 Social Pro Cases measure 10.5 mm (D) x 62 mm (W) x 127 mm (L). Of all the iPhone 5 cases that I have tried so far, this is one of the slimmest. I was actually expecting a case that felt more like silicone but this one is made of a special TPU and has a different texture — like a matte feeling.
The hardness level goes somewhere between a hard shell and a soft silicone shell. So while it’s soft in the sense that you can bend it and you can easily slip your iPhone inside, it’s also hard in that you don’t feel like your iPhone is less protected.
As you can see above, the ZooGue cases have a very snug fit on the iPhone 5.
All the edges of the iPhone are protected and there are just holes on the areas that need to be accessible for chargers and earphones. You can also see that the case on the front side are a bit raised. This ensures that if my iPhone falls front first, the main screen won’t touch the ground.
The Zoogue iPhone 5 Social Pro cases come in 10 different colors — hot pink, old spice red, navy blue, grey, black, white, light blue, purple, lime green and army green. The first 5 colors I mentioned can be seen in the photo below.
Of the blue and pink case, my friend had this to say:
The pink case looks really good on the white iPhone 5. The navy blue color also looks sharp on the black iPhone 5 and blends with the black. It’s almost hard to tell the difference between the black (on the iPhone) and the blue — which in my opinion complements the iPhone very well. The case is sturdy. Very nice in terms of fit, and the finish is okay. The texture is kind of rough so it doesn’t slide. Protection from scratch is pretty good.
