Review: Cygnett’s WorkMate iPhone5 Case

Cygnett’s WorkMate iPhone5 cases are offered in three color options – black and olive green, black and slate grey and all white. A single WorkMate case is available at a price tag of $25.

WorkMate is a two-piece set  that combines thick polycarbonate shell with an impact-resistant inner silicone layer. Though the cases are made of firm material, the silicon edge on the case provides maximum flexibility.

It uses press through button overlays atop the volume and Sleep/Wake controls. The volume overlays work fine but the displaced shape of Sleep/Wake button often makes it unresponsive.

The WorkMate cases comes with cutouts around the rear camera and flash, mute switch, Lightning port, speakers, and headphone jack. The case is slim and grippable. Overall it feels good in hand.

The whole package of WorkMate ships with a microfiber cloth, an adhesive screen protector, and a small plastic applicator. This slim iPhone case is visually and physically different from other cases available on the market.


The WorkMate cases for iPhone 5 feels like a complementary case to your iPhone. The only minor complaint about the case is its sleep/wake button. Otherwise, the case looks great and offers excellent protection.
