I was reluctant to purchase CM4’s Q Card Case for iPhone 5/5S. I couldn’t find one in real life to hold and feel. Normally, I wouldn’t buy such a tangible object over the Internet. But the problem was, no matter where I looked I couldn’t find one to actually touch and feel. Earlier, I had purchased some very cheap plastic card cases, but the sliding action of those wore away my driver’s license and debit card details. The cool thing about the CM4 Q Card Case was that it has a leather-like card holder on the back. A cloth like material, I thought, would be better for my cards. I was right. And, there’s even room for a few folded up Canadian bills (they’re all plastic now).

Even better, the front of the case, by which I mean the side with the screen, has a rubber lip running around all four sides. Now, not only is my wallet better for my cards, my phone is better protected from drops and damage. Consequently, I no longer have to use a screen protector.

Along the bottom of the case there’s a wide cutout for the microphone, speaker, and Lightning port. I use a couple of different lightning cables and both fit through the slot easily. Likewise, I can use my Sony dock, without removing the phone from the case.

I’ve had the CM4 Q card case for just over four months now, and find it to be the best case I’ve ever owned. Like previous card cases, including one that was a transparent hard plastic, I’ve added a piece of paper with my gym membership’s bar-code to the outside of the wallet section (see the photo below).

Overall, I’m completely satisfied with the CM4 Q Card Case for iPhone 5/5s. And, I’m following the company on Twitter – just in case I should get the new bigger iPhone and need the new bigger case.
