Rated 4 out of 5 by Good case, but.... I've had this case on my phone since i bought the phone new around Christmas. I previously had an Iphone 4s which i also had a defender case on. the difference between the two cases are incredible, for example, the quality of the 5s case just seemed to be made better. The rubber outer layer of the 4s case never fit right and tore fairly easily. I haven't had any issues with the 5s case with it ripping or anything besides the belt clip rubbing some of the rubber off. A main disappointment, though, is since this case is for use with the fingerprint lock button, the case allows plenty of dust and whatnot under the screen protector which i have to take apart and clean regularly. The only thing that i genuinely dislike is the belt clip. My first clip lasted till this summer before it broke and i have since broken two other clips. The first two clips broke while getting out of a truck and the third broke simply by trying to get the phone out of it. The defender series case isn't a bad case, it just has its issues. I would still recommend it but not without a warning to be careful with the belt clip. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greater than Expected My son had recently purchased a new Iphone 5s and was questioning the price of the Otterbox...would it really be worth the money? College kid, no money, etc. You get my point. He did in fact purchase the Otterbox. Shortly after, we bought a boat. On our first launch I asked him to take his Iphone along just in case we needed to call the previous owner or a stall situation, call for help. Well when landing the thing, he jumped out to tie it off and as he jumped out, the phone fell off the clip and the phone landed in approx. 9 feet of murky and very cold water. He thought all was lost and we were all disappointed. He went home and called his buddy to tell him what happened. The friend had goggles etc and he went diving. They found the phone. After over an hour of being in the water, the phone was still on and there was only one single drop of water on the glass of the phone. His phone works just like brand new. I am so thankful that he bought the Otterbox and it saved his very expensive phone. Now, I am looking into purchasing a Kindle 8.9 HDX and I am very happy that I can buy an Otterbox to protect that investment as well. My only wish is that there was a color variant for the larger Kindle, Maybe pink or pink camo....but I will take black if that is all that is available. July 17, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good for about 1 year then Worthless Works for about a year - then the outside rubber casing gets very loose. I have only opened the casing 3 times in a year and the rubber casing is very loose. This is the second one I have had. The first one the outside rubber casing became loose in about 6 months. So it was replaced. This second one became worthless in one year. For the price I would expect it would last longer. I would not recommend. July 1, 2014

A: 
Each OtterBox case is designed to fit the device it will protect. Due to differences in device size, shape, and design cases designed for the iPhone 5/5S will not be compatible with the iPhone 5C.

Answers

A: 
Yes but in order to use touch ID the home button has to be exposed and most of the iPhone 5 otter boxes (like the defender series) cover the home button so to fully answer your question, Yes the iPhone 5s will fit in an iPhone 5 case but you may not be able to use touch ID

A: 
It will, but you will lose the fingerprint functionality because the 5 case covers the button.
