The Wristlet (iPhone 5; $28) is made from polycarbonate and PU materials that offer excellent protection in a package that folds up into a sleeve that can be safely tucked away in your purse—or carried on your wrist—when not in use.

The case, available in a black-and-red combination, also features a set of interior pockets for stashing a few cards or some cash.

Cellz

The Flip Holder Frame (iPhone 5; $7) protects your handset from bumps and scratches thanks to impact-resistant materials that feel soft to the touch.

Available in black, the Frame also features a convenient kickstand on the back that flips around to help you prop up your phone for viewing in landscape orientation.

The Mango (iPhone 5; $30) is a case that doubles as a viewing stand thanks to a unique construction that props up your handset in both landscape and portrait orientations.

It comes in blue, pink, white, black, green, or orange.

The Notch (iPhone 5; $25) features a dual-layer construction that brings together sturdy TPI material with special rubberized areas for a good grip under all conditions.

The case, which is available in a white, black, gunmetal, blue, red, or green metal finish, comes with a screen protector and cleaning cloth.

Lifeproof

The Nüüd (iPhone 5; $90) is water-, snow-, and shockproof, with wraparound protection that covers every surface of your iPhone without adding a lot of bulk.

In addition to being very easy to set up, the case comes with a range of accessories, from holster clips to car mounts.

Monoprice

The super-inexpensive Escher (iPhone 5; $3) protects your handset from scratches and scuffs with its soft, TPU construction that also offers an excellent grip.

The case comes in black, white, or translucent blue.
