Rated 1 out of 5 by Awful Protection Bought my daughter an Otterbox for her Iphone 5 and her screen has broken TWICE in the Otterbox, both times she dropped the phone, less than a foot and on it's back, and the screen cracked. Horrible September 25, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Yikes So my phone fell of like a 3 foot tall counter and is absolutely destroyed. I don't think I will ever get this case again because its bulkiness is clearly not worth the little protection it seems to give. September 7, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by VERY Happy, yet VERY Sad...... This is the first OtterBox case that I have ever purchased. I purchased it in mid-June of this year. I am VERY HAPPY because I feel that my phone is extremely well protected in the case and I particularly like the built in screen protector. Now, the disappointment. I have had this case for just over two months - and it looks absolutely awful. I carry it within it's own little purse in my purse, never in my pocket, and I don't have children. I am VERY easy on my phone. However, the edges of the case (near screen) are crumbling, it looks absolutely filthy, and the bottom seems stretched as it keeps popping out of place. These issues are with the rubber, not the plastic. My husband, who works on a construction site, purchased this case in black at the same time. His looks perfect! The outside rubber portion of my case is purple, so, I can't help but wonder if the low quality of mine is based upon the color alone? August 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Please bring back the older version!!! I was an owner of both the defender and commuter cases for the iPhone 4S for years and loved those cases. Unfortunately, the new defender case has been a big disappointment. I bought the hot pink color and it looks dirty almost immediately. This new material is not nearly as sturdy and does not stay clean at all. Notably, the 4S case I had a few years ago was a light violet color and it stayed clean and very durable. I am reluctant to by the commuter case as well because of this new material...please bring back the older version!!! August 21, 2014

Q: 
I have separated the phone and the case overnight an the most of the day, and I still have what looks like I have moisture on the plastic between the phone and the plastic. What causes this and what can I do to eliminate this?

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.
