Review & Giveaway: Graft Concepts Leverage Case for iPhone 5


I was a big fan of the original Graft Concepts Leverage Case.  As a customer first, I’ve come to know the company personally and have seen them grow from an idea to a case that holds a coveted wall spot inside Apple’s retail stores.  The all new Leverage Case for the iPhone 5 is now shipping and I recently received a sample for review.  The case, which comes in a soft touch black finish or a glossy white, features the company’s unique clasp or lever system, which secures the case around your iPhone.  Does the Leverage for the iPhone 5 perform just like the version for the 4 did?  You’ll have to check out my review to find out.

Inside the packaging you’ll find just the case.  No extras come along with it.

Here’s what Graft Concepts has to say about the  Leverage Case for iPhone 5.

Inspired by high-end watch clasps, the metal latch and lever system allows for easy installation. Flip to open, click in place to close. No brute force is required to install or remove the Leverage i5. This is not your conventional iPhone case.

We pride ourselves in making sure the details are correct. We have ensured that the tactile feedback on the integrate sleep/wake and volume buttons remains the same as the iPhone. The case has cutouts to allow for the headphone minijack, microphone, lightning connector, and speaker.


There are several variations of the Leverage Case.  For the case color you have the option of choosing Black or White.  The Black version has a soft touch finish while the White is glossy.  For the clasp you can then choose whether or not you’d like it to have a glossy or matte finish.
