That covers the shockproof and screen protection, no water protection going this route, but at least you can still fit it in your pocket...
Are the glass screen protectors all much the same, or are the really cheap ones no good?

I havenít had good luck with the cheaper ones. They lasted about a week for me. The more expensive one ($30) has lasted close to two years.

None.

Be careful and you don't need one.

I got this iPhone 5S new whenever they came out, like 5 years ago. It was my main phone for two entire years then after that I stick an iPad SIM card in it and use it to stream radio in machines or at the shop, so essentially I still carry it with me everywhere I go.

Cases just make these phones that are getting stupid in size even bigger and more clumsy.

I don't bother with cases, yet to find one that can hold up to a loaded tandem running over them, or a track hoe. Had an Otterbox for awhile, kind of big for my liking, it did save my phone once when I left if on the ledge of the overhead shop door. fell from about 14 feet onto cement and no harm done. I just use a rubber cover now with no screen protector at all, been lucky a few times, just have to be more careful that's all.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Have a otter box on my phone ,love the feature that on the back has a sliding flap that has room for three cards.drivers lic ,fuel card and a visa. Also added some sort of plastic" bulletproof" front covering on the screen.. Knock on Wood!! ..Three years and countless drops still protected the phone. All from Best Buy.

Lifeproof. They aren't perfect but make the phone way nicer to hang onto. Can't stand not having a case. They are so friggin slippery to hang onto.

not sure if the new otterboxes come with the built in plastic screen cover or not but my favorite so far is cut that out and put in a tempered glass screen protector instead for the defender series.

as i side note, these curved screens really suck with any kind of case at all, wish i could just get a flat one
