Snap On Case for iPhone 5
Not compatible with the 5c
I just got my first iPhone, and was super excited to be able to get a case that matched my bag and other accessories. Sadly, I did not read closely enough to realize this case is not compatible with the iPhone 5c. I had to send it back and order something that is not Vera. :(

This case is beautiful! I have it in Ribbons and love it to pieces.
Now, onto the real business:
a) Yes, this case is more for cosmetic purposes than for protection. I acknowledged that when I choose it over the heavy-duty Otterbox case that the Verizon sales rep was strongly advising me to pick. That being said: when you get this case, know that it might protect your phone for some things, but if you really want some solid protection that goes above and beyond, go for the Otterbox.
b) HOWEVER, this case seems to be much nicer (not as flimsy) as the iPhone 4 cases. It is decently sturdy (I've accidentally dropped my phone onto the counter a time or two and it's been just fine), but it is also very glossy and a little bit flexible, which I like (it's not impossible to take off and on).
c) A few things I want to point out:
- the case makes the iPhone (for me, at least) very easy to grip in my hand, which is nice and means I'm (probably) less likely to drop it.
- the case does not cover the buttons, which I found very annoying about the Otterbox (the case wouldn't smoosh down on the buttons)
- it's a very slim design, and I can still fit the iPhone in my pocket very easily, which is nice. When I tried out the Otterbox, it kind of skidded and was a bit bulky.
- it's BEAUTIFUL. Need I say more?
All in all: Yes, I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thanks for another lovely product, Vera!

Lightweight, and not for the clumsy phone dropper!
I got the Snap on Case in Dogwood and loved it from the start. I bought mine on the Verizon Wireless website before it was available in the Vera stores. It is really light and fits perfectly in my Carry It All Wristlet or Wristlet. It fits in the back pocket of my jeans, and it doesn't slip out of my hands or on any surfaces. I don't drop my phone too often and I know this minimal protection case is all I need, but if you drop your phone a lot I would say this case isn't for you. I have had this case on my phone for about 3 months straight with no paint peeling or chips. I love this case so much I have one in Midnight Blues on the way!
