Hong Kong-based iPhone case maker Musubo has released two distinctive designs for the iPhone 5: Hypergrip ($30) and Retro ($35). The former is a simple silicone rubber case with a contrast-colored hard plastic bar running diagonally across the back, matching a grippy molded pattern above and below it; the latter is a two-layer rubber case and hard plastic frame design, similar in looks to a classic microphone. Retro looks and feels considerably more elaborate than Hypergrip, but both have the same integrated button protection and holes, apart from Retro's unsightly rear Apple logo hole. Each case comes in multiple colors, and packaged with screen film, a plastic stand, cleaning cloth, and applicator tool.

Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
