It's been a trend for fashion designers to make mobile accessories with their unique ideas and styles. Adopted was founded a year ago by two designers who have produced some very unique iPhone cases. Their new Cushion Wrap case for the iPhone 5 is one of the examples where fashion meets technology. Built with a metal frame, the Adopted Cushion Wrap Case is sturdy and very protective of the iPhone 5's back and sides. It comes in 9 beautiful colors.
The Adopted Cushion Wrap Case for iPhone 5 stands out with its quilted pattern that looks distinctly fabric. However, looks can be deceiving. The Adopted Cushion Wrap Case is made with special metal frame and surfaced with soft touch hard rubber material that feels nice in hand. The case is sturdy and very protective of the iPhone 5 from scratches, bumps and nicks to the back and sides. The metal frame also provides good structural support should you drop the phone in the case. The material has some flexibility that makes it easy to install the phone in the case or take it out. The interior of the Cushion Wrap case is painted in shiny piano black.
The Adopted Cushion Wrap Case for iPhone 5 covers the entire back of the iPhone 5, the vertical sides and most of the four corners. It leaves most of the top and the bottom of the phone exposed. The sides of the case rise up higher than the display glass so that when you put the phone face down, the case creates a barrier for the screen. The case comes in 9 solid colors and they all look luscious and make your case stand out.
The Adopted Cushion Wrap Case for iPhone 5 is very functional thanks to the generous cutouts and the openings. The case exposes most of the top and the bottom of the phone so that you can have access to the top power button and the bottom 3.5mm audio jack, the Lightning port and the speakers easily. The case has a generous side cutout that gives you access to the silence button and the volume buttons. The rear cutout leaves plenty of room for the rear camera enjoy the full view and the flash to fully illuminate.
We've seen a lot of iPhone 5 cases by now, but the Adopted Cushion Wrap Case stands out with its very unique look in all color options. The case is very sturdy and should last you for a long time. The strong metal frame will protect your phone's structure in drops and the cutouts give you easy access to all ports and buttons. The case doesn't come with any film protector for the front glass, so you're on your own to seek display protection.
