Review and Giveaway: Musubo Diamond and Chamfer iPhone 5 Cases

Based in Hong Kong, Musubo specializes in crafting accessories for smartphones and has recently unveiled a series of new cases for the iPhone 5. In this review, I will delve into the specifics of the Musubo Diamond and Chamfer cases, priced at US$32.99 and US$24.99 respectively. Additionally, TUAW is offering readers a chance to win one of three Musubo iPhone 5 cases.


The Chamfer case is the more understated option, characterized by its broad, chamfered edges on the back.

Constructed from durable polycarbonate with a soft-touch finish, it is available in a variety of colors including red, blue, green, pink, purple, silver, and black.

Each purchase of a Chamfer case comes with several extras: a screen protector, a collapsible video stand, and a microfiber cloth for screen cleaning. These additions provide great value for a case priced at $25.

The more eye-catching Diamond case features a soft, flexible thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) shell that encases the iPhone 5’s sides, and a hard, shiny back with a distinctive diamond pattern. This design not only protects the phone but also adds a unique, stylish look that stands out.

The Diamond case is available in black, purple, red, and blue.


Both the Diamond and Chamfer cases offer solid protection for the iPhone 5, covering its sides and back. The included screen protector is a welcome addition, helping to keep the phone’s screen pristine. The small, foldable video stand included with each case is particularly handy and appreciated.

The TPU material of the Diamond case makes it easy to install by simply stretching it around the phone.
