There are a lot of people out there who just don’t like the look of cases covering up their pretty new phones. This is understandable because many of the new phones out are wonderfully made slabs of technology that look great naked. In my case, I love the look of the new iPhone 5 and how thin and light it is. However, I don’t entirely trust myself with keeping it naked and unprotected as I’ve had a few accidents in the past that were avoided thanks to using a case. With that said, there is a solution that will let you have your cake and eat it too. The Joy Factory has the Alton case for the iPhone 5. It is a hard, polycarbonate shell case that helps protect your device, but is clear so that the original look of the iPhone 5 can shine through.
As you can see from the photo, the Alton is basically invisible at a glance. It’s basically like many of the other colored shell cases I’ve looked at, but clear in color and perfect for those who want to show off their shiny new iPhone 5. The Alton will protect the rear and sides of your phone, but not the top and bottom edges as those are open. The included screen protector will help protect the screen from scratches and the sides of the Alton do extend a tiny bit past the screen so that when laid flat, the screen isn’t sitting on the surface. Now, the one thing that the new line of Joy Factory cases do come with that no other case brand includes is the BubbleShield Sleeve which is water-resistant and great for protecting you iPhone 5 from dirt, water, and other debris.
The Joy Factory Alton is a great case for those who don’t like the look of cases or even want a case. You’ll still be able to show off how your iPhone 5 while protecting it from scratches and accidental drops. The only downside of the case is that you can see little scratches on it once you do get scratches, but hey, better the case than your phone, right? The Joy Factory Alton is available now in either smoke or clear for $24.95. As an added bonus, they include a crystal front screen protector as a well as their famous BubbleShield sleeve.
