iPhone 5 Matt finish case.

Iphone 5 Black Matte Case findings

Hi all. Here are my findings and am still in search for a good iphone case.

1. Case should be matte finish.
2. Buttons should be open. not under the case.
3. Case should be screen protector friendly.

Current Case observations
-------------------------
* Casecrown matte finish case. - Great feel and almost perfect except the case bottom comes loose. Its cheap $9.95
* Siedeo Matte finish case - Great feel and fits extremly tight and when seated the screen protector gets bubbles on sides.

Are there any others in market which may be good?

*Matte finish

Sorry, I just kept imaging my brother's face (named Matt) printed on the case you're talking about. Kind of made me lol.

This is the best case I've ever had for a phone

Matt black, discreet / slim / light and the fit is perfect. The price is a bonus!

Can't get this in the US i believe. Also I don't think this has all the protection. I liked it though. any others?

I'm pretty sure they're available in the US, click on the $$ / Star Spangled Banner on the top left...

I tried an Incipio 'feather'. Terrible case. It looks & feels nice, also nice and discreet, but it doesn't fit well (phone slides up & down a tiny bit, but a tiny bit is too much!), got 3 exchanges all the same then got a refund.

Here you go...

Just got this last week. Very happy with it so far. Thin, light, good build quality, matte finish. And at $10 with free shipping it isn't too much of a risk.
