iPhone 5 is already a huge phone. It’s essential to use a light-weight case to protect it from scratches. The cases that give maximum protection to iPhone 5 are known to add some bulk. It’s something you have to deal with if you need best protection.

05. OtterBox Commuter Series Case for iPhone 5
Last on the list is a one from well reputed brand. Its last only because it’s weight, would have been at the first place if it’s little lighter. Still can’t say it adds bulk. It gives two layers of protection to your iPhone and includes a screen protector as well. It’ll protect your phone against Dusts, Scratches and most importantly Drops. Other four cases in this list will have trouble with drops. But OtterBox Commuter offers reasonable protection against drops as well.
