    X-Doria's iPhone 5c/5s cases: First look and giveaway


    As you can probably imagine, iPhone case manufacturers have been jumping all over tech bloggers since before the iPhone 5c and 5s were even announced. One of the first to actually ship us hardware was X-Doria, with four new cases designed for the new phones. Take a look at what X-Doria has to offer, and then enter for a chance to win one of the cases for your new iPhone 5c.

    Defense 720°

    The $34.99 Defense 720° provides a hard injected protective shield to completely cover the screen while still giving your fingertips full control of the screen. There's a translucent plastic back to show off the colors of your favorite iPhone while still offering protection, and a rubber-like patterned edge as a defense against drops. The screen shield includes a hole that will be perfect for using Touch ID on the 5s to unlock the device.

    For the iPhone 5 and 5s, the Defense 720° comes in blue, purple and black. If you have an iPhone 5c, there are bright red, blue and yellow cases in addition to gray.


    For only $24.99, the Rapt is made of two different materials in two different colors. Polycarbonate and thermoplastic urethane keep your iPhone 5/5c/5s protected from drops while looking good at the same time.

    There are three flavors of the Rapt; black/grey, dark blue/light blue, and pink/fuschia. It's available for both the iPhone 5/5s and the 5c.


    For good, inexpensive protection of your iPhone 5c without covering up the Apple logo or bright colors, the $24.99 Scene is perfect. It has rigid clear polycarbonate all around that is protected from drops around the sides with a rubbery material.

    It's available in red, grey,blue and yellow, but only works with the iPhone 5c.

    Scene Plus

    The iPhone 5c and 5/5s both get the $29.99 Scene Plus, which has a patterned translucent back. It uses the same hard polycarbonate / rubber exterior and side design as several of the other X-Doria entries, and the patterns are quite eye-opening.

    For the iPhone 5 and 5s, the designs are Black Prism, Pink Bubbles, and Blurry Dots Blue. The iPhone 5c gets Bubbles, Tribal HB, and Stripes.


    Now it's your turn to grab one of these new cases for your sleek and colorful iPhone 5c.
