Acase and its engineering team created a new mold upon receipt of an original iphone 5 to replace the original model which may be little loose fitting.
Following up on our original Superleggera PRO series, Acase has created an improved and updated product to satisfy our customers.
While the exterior PC hard shell prevents scratches and damage from accidental drops, the interior silicone coating covering all ports provides unparalleled shock resistance. With the easy snap on protective case, Acase Superleggera PRO gives your iPhone complete double layer protection.
For the newly developed Superleggera PRO case, we chose high quality PC material to also prevent damage from more serious drops and impacts. In combination with a tough silicone coating, we also use customized Japanese paint to create more vivid colors, smoother surfaces, and more durability.
In addition, we have made an already sleek case even thinner (less than 11.4mm). With our new Superleggera PRO case for the iphone 5, you can have the best of both worlds. A combination of extremely high protection and sleekness which enhances the look of the iphone 5.
The continuation of enhanced and improved product lines demonstrates Acase's goal to not just create A+ quality accessories for customers, but also to build upon the previous designs by incorporating customer feedback by listening carefully to our customers comments and suggestions for improvements. By "fine tuning" what was already one the best selling and most highly rated cases for the iphone 4, we feel the Supeleggera Pro for the iphone 5 is the best solution on the market today to protect your coveted device.
Acase Provides 100% satisfaction product to our customers. If there is any issue with the product, please feel free to email us. We will fulfill your request promptly without any hassle.

Perfectly snug fit on an iPhone5, beautiful non-glossy finish resists fingerprintsNov 04, 2012
By M. Erb Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2H4OWVOWI7WA UPDATE: 12/18/2012 - aCase has updated this case and for all practical purposes it is the same except the logo now appears on the outside of the case rather than inside as I show in my video.
This is my second aCase Superleggera iPhone case. The first case I got was the purple one and this one is black.
As with the purple case, it fits my iPhone perfectly. The silicone inner piece is much thicker than the silicone piece that I've experienced with other cases by different companies. In particular, cases by Incipio that I've had have proven to be not very durable.
The aCase seems to provide more cushioning since the silicone is thicker. I also like the fact that the ports of the phone are covered by little flaps integrated into the inner silicone case. These protective flaps prevent dirt and junk from getting into the phone.
The hard, outer case is beautifully painted with a non-glossy paint that simply shrugs off fingerprints completely. You can try to get a fingerprint on the case but you won't be successful.
Some reviewers have observed that their phone is not snug in the case. I can only say that in both of the cases I have, my phone is completely snug in the case. It fits perfectly.
This is a great looking, functional case that provides good protection to your beautiful new iPhone5. The price is not outrageous either. I like the aCase Superleggera Case for iPhone5.
aCase provided a sample for me to review.

My new Acase Superleggera Pro iPhone 5 case is excellent and fits perfectlyOct 11, 2012
By 176 I received my Acase Superleggera PRO case for the iPhone 5 last week. Compared to the iphone 4 version (which I absolutely loved), the new case looked thinner with brighter colors and a smoother surface.
However, once I put it onto my iPhone 5, I discovered that the silicone rubber part was not tight nor secure enough just like what other customers had complained about.
Immediately, I sent an email about the issue to Acase customer service,asking if there was anything they could do to resolve this problem. If they didn't reply to me within a week, I was just going to return it and purchase a case from another brand. However, since I loved the iphone 4 version so much I wanted to give them a chance.
To my surprise, Acase replied back to me within 24 hours apologizing for the inconvenience. In the e-mail, they explained that the R&D team had solved the issue, and promised to send out a revised version by this week.
After several days, I finally received the new Superleggera PRO case today.The package and the case all looked the same. Immediately, I put it onto my iPhone to check the fit.
My iPhone was perfectly secured in the case without wiggling around! The dual layer case protects the phone well without adding any bulk to it. It was now just like their iphone 4 case which I loved so much.
Apparently, in response to customer feedback, the Acase logo was moved to inside the hard shell instead of on the outside. That was nice as I am not a big fan of free advertising. It also looks much more elegant and stylish without the logo visible.
Overall, the design, shape, and quality in the revised version is just what I had hoped for. I was very pleased with Acases' customer service and how they promptly resolved my issue. It is obvious that they really do care about their customers. For those who had the same problem and have been contacted by Acase, I am sure you will get the revised one soon.
It is just a shame that they released the prior version without adequately checking how it fit in an actual iphone 5. Apparently many manufacturers do the same thing in order to get to market quickly and release products based upon Specs.
However, I am glad to report that the revised version is a perfect fit and for those of you who owned the Iphone 4 version (like me) you will be just as pleased with the iphone 5 case.

Why we all were willing to wait... Perfection!!!Oct 13, 2012
By p2k I, like most others here, had the exact same case on my 4 and 4S. It was the best case I've ever owned.
So when I found out there was a new version for the 5, I had to have it.
Please note: There was a bad batch of them out there, but CTS has committed to replacing them all. So if your reading reviews please read those posted around Oct 10, 2012 and newer.
So about the case, basically its a 2 layer system.
1st layer is silicone, that absorbs shock.... 2nd layer is hard plastic with a rubbery paint coating protects the silicone...
Normal silicone cases cant protect your phone from drops because its too soft, in the end your phone absorbs most of the impact. Hard plastic ones crack upon impact.
The Acase outer shell is designed to take that impact and spread it out over a larger surface of the silicone, thus protecting your phone.
Some previous reviews and updated photos(for other colors) show ACASE logo in white on the back of the case. Seems a lot of people complained, so they must have removed it on the new batch because mine did not come with it. The only logo i see was molded along with the back cover discreetly on the inside.
If you owned the previous version, you would remember there was an issue with the silicone at the bottom above the connector, because the 30 pin connector was so large the silicone there had to span a long distance and over time would stretch and start to bow. Its hard to say if this one will do that, but because of the smaller connector, that part is attached closer together and should not stretch.
Its was definitely worth the wait.

Too badDec 10, 2012
By Mr P I had the Superleggera Pro for my 4s and it was the best. I really wanted this case to be just like the original, but sadly it is not. It fits, but I find the phone coming out of the case way too easy. The top left corner is really weak, due to the notch in the plastic for the mute switch and volume buttons. I have pulled my phone out many times and seen the entire top left corner of the phone popping out of the case. I can tell you if my phone slipped out of my hand and land face down it would for sure crack the screen. I compared my old 4s Superleggera Pro with this new 5 Superleggera Pro case side by side, and the rubber for the 4s is much thicker and the bead around the screen it thicker on the 4s. They used thinner rubber and a smaller bead on this new design, and that is where they went wrong. The thinner rubber also means less protection. The smaller bead also is less protection and less rigidity to hold the phone in the case. It is really too bad. I even waited for them to get the kinks out of the new design too. I am returning it and I am going ballistic. Ballistic case that is.
Changed my two star to a one.
Shady business going on. So how do you sell a product that hasn't been getting those rave reviews. Well, of course you just sell it under a product that already has great reviews, and call it a different size. Sure the 547 reviews as of today 12-12-12 (finally got to use that) are for the 4s and are labeled in small print, but a lot of people may not notice that. The new iphone 5 case is not the same as the iphone 4s case, they are two different products for two different phones, and should be sold under separate reviews. So, I gave a great review for the 4s case and now they are using it to sell their weak iphone 5 case? Yeah, that sounds okay. Not! Come on, the only reason they are selling the 5 case under the 4s is for sales. If you ask me, that is shady business. Does Amazon allow this? Probably. It is good business? No! Hey Acase (I know you read these) you burnt this bridge.
I like this case a lot!Oct 11, 2012
By DCJ001 Like many other reviewers before me, I too used this model case with an iPhone 4 because I liked the idea of having soft silicone to softly protect my iPhone with a hard, protective polycarbonate shell on the outside for protection. It just made sense to get the same case for my iPhone 5.
I ordered this case two weeks ago. A few days later, I received an email from the vendor that explained that a defect in this model had been identified, and that a corrected model would be shipped about one week later.
I received the case today. I put the soft silicone shell, with its own volume and sleep/wake buttons to cover the iPhone's, on my iPhone 5. Then, I put the hard polycarbonate shell on over the soft silicone shell. The openings for the camera/flash, lightning port, and headphone jack are exactly as they should be.
When using my iPhone 5 while it is in this case, I noticed that the lip of the case barely comes over the display so that it is still easy to move apps from one screen to the next screen. I like the feel of the polycarbonate shell, and I really like it because it does not attract fingerprints. You might need to clean your display occasionally. But the case is always free of fingerprints!
This case does not include a screen protector. I like using this case without a screen protector a lot more than another brand case that came with a screen protector as a part of the case. Apple uses a very durable glass, and it feels great to use the iPhone 5 without a screen protector.
