I am probably one of the last people in “techie world” that still owns a generation 5 iPhone. hanging my head in shame It’s sad, but it’s true. I was holding off on upgrading until my contract expired, and then kept putting off upgrading because of the rumors of an even newer iPhone. *sigh* It’s a vicious cycle. The struggle is real!

While I was on one of my Amazon shopping sprees, imagine my surprise when I came across a phone case that still exists that will fit my old phone. It’s a sturdy belt clip and case, plus it’s pink! What’s not to love?? You know what comes next. That’s right… I quickly ordered it.

The iPhone 5S Belt Clip and Case by Stalion arrived quickly thanks to FREE two day shipping via Amazon Prime. I had the pink beauty in my hot little hands in record time.

What I like: Both the belt clip and case have kickstands allowing the phone to be propped up for easy hands free viewing. The kickstand on the phone case is a little difficult to open, but it does lock into and stay in place, and it seems sturdy. The kick stand on the belt clip can be turned 180 degrees, allowing you several options for propping to view. Inside the belt clip is a nice piece of black velvet material that keeps your screen safely tucked inside. The camera and volume control buttons are easy to access with several cutouts in the case.

What I don’t like: I will admit that I was a little surprised to find that the case was made of a hard plastic, since the description suggests that the case has a “rubberized texture” which provides a non slip grip. The case does have a bumpy texture, but it is most certainly not a non slip case. Instead the plastic is very slick and slippery. While the texture of the case was not a deal breaker for me, I am not 100% satisfied with the case. The top and bottom ends of the phone case are exposed, which makes it easy to reach the features on the top and bottom of the phone, but leaves me a little worried about full protection when the phone is not in the case. I have also found that when the phone is in the clip with the screen facing out, the phone is very vulnerable to damage and the charger port is impossible to access unless placed in the clip upside down, making it awkward to handle.
