People often ask us what the best iPhone 5 Back Protector product is, because there are just so many options out there these days. It seems like even grandmas are making and selling iPhone cases and covers. Before we make any recommendations, let’s take a look at some of the options available. If you just want to see what our recommendation, just scroll down to the bottom last paragraph =)
Traditional iPhone 5 Back Protector – Cases
Chances are, if you are searching for back protectors for the iPhone 5, you aren’t looking for a bulky case. However, we do want to mention this option because cases do in fact protect the back of your iPhone 5. The only problem is that most cases add unnecessary weight and size to your device, which is an aesthetic nightmare. The iPhone 5 is such a beautiful device…so covering it up with a bulky and thick case is almost a sin. There are many case options available, and you can find thousands by simply going on eBay or Amazon.
Perhaps iPhone 5 Back Protector Covers?
Covers are alternatives to protecting the back of your iPhone 5. This option adds less bulk compared to cases, and often consists of a piece of plastic that snaps on to the back of your device. The advantage of covers is that they are really easy to put on, and are less intrusive compared to cases. The problem is covers are often made out of cheap material that make your expensive iPhone 5 seem cheap. In addition, even though covers are thinner than cases, they still have considerable thickness, and ‘wraps around’ the side of your iPhone 5, making it appear thicker.
Skins as iPhone 5 Back Protector?
The next option on the list are iPhone 5 skins that could be used as the back protector. Skins have a few key advantages. The first thing you’ll notice is that they are razor thin, and simply sticks on to the back of your iPhone 5. This provides scratch protection for the back, and does not add any bulk to the back or sides of your iPhone 5. Skins also come in many designs that can add personality to your device, although you also have to be careful because many designs are just too silly, and take away the professionalism and elegance of the iPhone. The main disadvantage of skins as an iPhone 5 back protector, is that they add little to no protection. Other than protecting your iPhone 5 from scratches, there is little else.
Our Recommendation – Slip Stopper
We created Slip Stopper because we weren’t satisfied with the iPhone 5 Back Protector solutions on the market. Slip Stopper is a GEL skin that adds grip without the bulk of traditional iPhone 5 cases or covers. It also adds more protection compared to a normal skin, because the GEL material can absorb shock when putting your device on the table. There is also a beautiful Apple Logo cutout on the back to showcase the branding.
We may be a little bit biased (actually, probably very biased ^^), but we really do think Slip Stopper is the best solution on the market if you are looking for an iPhone 5 Back Protector. You can check it out at our official website http://www.slipstopper.com
