Belkin iPhone 5/5S cases for £1 at Poundland

Found 6th Apr 2014
Just saw & bought Belkin iPhone 5/5S cases at Poundland, they had the four different colours pictured. I'm not sure what these would normally retail for but Belkin is supposed to be a pretty decent brand so £1 seems like a steal.
Seen at Poundland in Musselburgh but I reckon it'd be national.

Here are a couple of the cases on Belkin's website:
Belkin Shield Sheer Matte in Clear: belkin.com/uk/…62/ (£9.99)
Belkin Grip Sheer in Magnetic: belkin.com/uk/…93/ (£12.99)

I bought the first one from Amazon for £10 and frankly a quid is all it is worth. It's cracked in 2 places after just 4 months and slips of the corner.

is this case a rubber case or hard plastic case?

The transparent and striped ones are hardshell polycarbonate cases, the pink one is a flexible TPU case (but still pretty thin). I didn't buy the 4th one so not sure but it's called Belkin Grip Max. Maybe Google knows the answer.

If you buy an iphone 5/5S you are hardly going to buy a cheap £1 case for it.

These are not cheap cases, but Belkin cases at a cheap price. There's a difference. Belkin are considered pretty good for Apple accessories.

Belkin are amazing. Heat added

phou90 will be all over you lol

Would iPhone 5 and 5s cases fit 5c?

Would iPhone 5 and 5s cases fit 5c?

I don't think so. Their dimensions are slightly different (iPhone 5/5S are flatter than the 5C), as are the shapes of the buttons.

I always wonder how these shops make a profit out of these when they sell them. I doubt that Poundland can get these stocked in for less than £1 each. Surely they make a loss from these?

passing a poundland today so i'll have a look - can't imagine i'll get 'owt though ..

Why spend more on the case than the phone's worth??

Not true. I bought a transparent one off of Ebay and I've had my phone over a year.
