Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Average case I have had this case for only a couple of days and I already need a new holster. I keep it at my 9 O'clock position so it doesn't stick in to my side when seated. I've heard good things about Otter Box and I'd figured I would give one a try but I'm not as pleased with it for the amount that I paid for it. April 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far so good I can see how other reviews have stated that hair/dust can get in under the fingerprint sensor cut out but mine has stayed tight for a few days now with no dust entry. I don't place my phone in a pocket however - I usually use the holster. I wanted to say thanks for making a nice bright orange. It is almost the exact fluorescent construction orange and I think it goes good with the cement gray outer border. So far so good. Orange is a hard color to find. This is a bulky case but it needs to be bulky to provide the drop protection. The only thing that would make the case better is if they figure out a way to cover the touch ID sensor and still make it work. (I did the design your own case so I got custom, unique colors. Thanks Otterbox for letting us design our own case!) April 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Doesn't give shock protection I had an Otterbox Defender case for my iPhone 4S and really liked it, so I ordered one for my iPhone 5S. My initial impression was that it wasn't going to give as much protection, and that impression was confirmed when my iPhone fell three feet from a counter onto a hardwood floor. When I picked it up, I could hear components rattling around inside my phone. If it truly protected against shock, the fall wouldn't have knocked components loose. If this case can't protect my iPhone from shock falling on a hardwood floor, it can't protect against shock if it falls on cement or rocks. The damage caused by a case that was supposed to protect my iPhone cost me money to swap it out that I shouldn't have had to spend. For my replacement iPhone, I bought a Lifeproof nuud. April 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Never buying anything else Love, love, LOVE Otterboxes! I have used Otterbox for about 5 years now for every single phone I've ever had and they have all worked wonderfully. This one is no exception. It is slimmer, which I consider an improvement, but still feels hardy and well protected. March 28, 2014

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.

Q: 
The ten ton elephant in the room is will the fingerprint sensor function with this case? I am not the first to ask, but you have so far ignored the many requests for an answer. I and many others will not buy this case until you answer this question.

A: 
Works perfect with the finger print sensor. Have not had any issues with it. The button is completely open because of a cut out in the screen. I was worried about dirt getting in the button opening and then under the screen. But the built in screen fits snuggly against the phone screen so this has not been an issue at all for me.

We always do our best to allow for full functionality of all the great features on devices our cases protect. This case will be no exception. Our Defender Series cases designed for the iPhone 5s will allow for use of the finger print Touch ID feature.
