Most people find rubber a good choice, although it is not the best when it comes to iPhone aesthetics.

If you are concerned about your image, a leather case for your iPhone device would be the most appropriate. Leather cases are sturdier but they come at a high cost. However, the design and material of the cases matches to feel and look of the iPhone. Like any other cases, leather ones come in many types and colors.

Plastic iPhone 5 Cases
Plastic cases are a fun collection because they come in vibrant designs, looks and colors. The cases are common among the younger generation of iPhone users because they can buy a number of them and change them whenever they want to.
