The Poetic Atmosphere for iPhone 5/5s is a hard and semi-transparent case, which offers a good amount of protection for the iPhone 5/5s, in a minimalistic design. This case is one of the best cases per value out there for the iPhone 5/5s. You can this case on amazon for less than $10!
The Poetic Atmosphere for the iPhone 5/5s offers a great deal of scratch and bumps protection for the iPhone 5/5s, however, in terms of drop protection – there are better cases out there. This is a hard case and it’s made out of plastic, so although plastic does have some shock absorbing capabilities, it’s nothing compared to silicone or rubber. So you do have to take into consideration when considering this case. Although the drop protection the Atmosphere case provides isn’t great, it does have a pretty generous raised lip around the screen, so the screen has very good protection against drops (if you drop you iPhone 5/5s on the screen) or in case you place your iPhone 5/5s facing down on a flat surface. Another feature that may add some drop protection to your iPhone 5/5s is the little cushions on back corners of the Poetic Atmosphere case. These cushions are actually a great way to add drop protection features to a hard shell minimalistic case. Overall, this case offers more drop protection than you’d expect from a hard case, thanks to the raised lip around the screen and the cushions on the corners. You won’t find a one-layer hard shell case that offers more protection to your iPhonr 5/5s than the Poetic Atmosphere.
The Poetic Atmosphere for iPhone 5/5s looks great. This case is transparent, so you can show the back of your iPhone to everyone, it also has a matte finish to it, so it won’t attract any fingerprints, or at least they won’t be very noticeable as they would with a clear glossy case. The cutouts for the camera and speakers are great, however, the raised lip above the speakers and charging port is a bit loose. Some people may not like it. We find that the built quality of many Poetic cases to a be a little slack sometimes. The raised lip of the Poetic Atmosphere and the Poetic Borderline for Nexus 4 received many complaints from buyers, so it’s very disappointing to see these problems on newer cases. The case has a Poetic logo on it and the rubberized frame comes in a few colors to choose from. Overall this case looks amazing, although the built quality is a bit disappointing.
One of the best choices you have, if you’re looking for a minimalistic hard shell case for your iPhone 5/5s. It offers more drop protection than you’d expect from a hard case, thanks to the raised lip around the screen and the cushions on the back corners. The design of the Poetic Atmosphere for the iPone 5/5s is great, however the built quality is a bit disappointing with the loose frame above the speakers. Overall, a great case to consider if you’re looking for a hard case for your iPhone 5/5s.
