Review Summary:

PROS: Quality made product. Thoughtfully designed, with great attention to details. Affordable. CONS: None really.

It seems that new iPhone cases are being made and released almost on a daily basis, if we speak about well-known iOS-compatible accessory makers. This is not just a feeling, but a regular trend which happens almost every year once Apple unveils the newest iPhone generation. This year it was a known fact that Apple will introduce two new phones, which made manufacturers completely pause creation of new cases in order to be prepared for adjustment to any new standards.

In case you like to spend some time learning more about iPhone cases before making a final purchase, than you probably know about a company called iSkin. This company introduced several very interesting and very popular iPhone cases during the last couple of years. With the introduction of iPhone 5C, iSkin also unveiled the newest generation of Exo cases. In this article we’ll take a look at the newest product by iSkin which carries the name of Exo series, but this one is made for the iPhone 5 and 5S.

I was always very interested in reviewing products designed and made by iSkin, since I’ve had a chance of reviewing several very quality made cases which also brought at least one very interesting, prominent, and innovative design feature. As it name says, Exo case bring some kind of exoskeleton protection, but making it as light and thin as possible. Now let’s take a look at its design and functionality.

The Exo case is a dual-layer case, where inner layer is made of hard rubber which is covered with strips of plastic on the outside. You can actually choose from four color combinations: black, white, and there are also very playful and vibrant combinations like blue/yellow and purple/pink.

Installation is very simple and effortless, and all you need to do is to carefully position your iPhone and gently press it inside the rubber shell. I really liked this kind of dual-layer construction, since it allows you to perfectly position your phone by slightly opening up the rubber case and pushing the phone in. After the phone is settled, rubber will firmly grip it and keep your iPhone in its place. Proper position is crucial since Exo case brings button covers, also made of rubber, which are doing a very good job. Speaking of that one interesting design feature that we could find with almost any iSkin-made case, the Exo case brings the built-in Lightning port protector.

In terms of design, it’s clear that designers at iSkin tried to give their best to offer very simple, yet interestingly designed product. As you can imagine, this case is also doing a very good job with this primary role. Dual layer is there to keep your phone protected in case you drop it, and the extruded edges are there to keep the screen somewhat protected. You will need to use a screen protector in case you’d like to create an all-around protection for your phone.

If you’re currently searching for a new case for your iPhone 5/5S, I would recommend taking a look at the Exo case. Not everyone will like its design, but I assume that many will. It’s affordable and offers great protection, with some extra features.
