Very glad you like it! Yeah, I wish there wasn't a sim cut out too. Try bending it a bit more? Mine has no more flex near the SIM card cut out. Just such a great case and an even more amazing value. I was considering getting a Spigen soft clear but now I guess I don't need to

what is the difference between Belkin Candy Grip Sheer case and the case in the link below which is not "candy" . the one below is considerably cheaper.

I am using this casetagram case which you can make with your own photos, you upload. However I got a new case from Gelaskins but can't get this one off!

Any ideals? Is there a trick I am missing? It is a basic clear hard case... like the one posted early on in this post...

I had no idea finding a case would be so hard (this is my first iPhone). I wish you luck in your search too!



The slim version of the Neo Hybrid was only just released so I don't think anyone has had time to test them yet, but I wouldn't think scratching would be an issue since it is two pieces and the silicone band is all that touches the phone. That being said, I haven't been overly impressed with SPG's customer service, the white silicone is reported to yellow very quickly, and their prices are high, so take that into account too.

which do you think is the best Incipio Dual Pro vs Ottorbox Defender vs Ottorbox Communicator

Which out of the three is the best case for the iPhone 5 . Pro/Cons of both ?

I'm currently using the Incase Slider gloss white. Since its a hard case it doesn't suffer from any discoloration. It also has enough space at the bottom for the large non-cord lightning adapter. Unfortunately I feel like the buttons are a little too hard to get to because of the thickness. Also the back seems to be a lot more thick than other cases.

I'm trying to wait it out until Spigen releases a white version of their Linear EX series. Almost bought a white air jacket if it wasn't for the OP, thanks for the heads-up on the discoloration!

Honestly I don't know why its so hard to find a hard white gloss case with buttons.

Reception case 5

I'm using the reception case 5 with their tempered glass screen guard and couldn't be happier. I first was looking for the glass screen protector for my new iPhone 5 and I came accross xyloglass, I purchased them along with reception case and now I'm completely protected from every angle. The front screen is covered with their tempered glass screen protector and the back with hard clear reception case. I've used may cases for the past 3 years for all my iphones and this combo is impressive both in quality and protection.

I also have dodo case for my iPhone and love the fit and best of all that it's made here in the USA.
