This one is by far the nicest I have ever seen out there, but their turnarounds seem slow as they're always out of stock and when they do take orders they're out again as soon as they've announced it!

Thumb resize.

Anyone know if theres anything else really similar to this out there?

Anybody have this one yet? Can we squeeze 2 cards in?

What about different colors for the kill Spenser? I'd definitely buy an all white one.

It appears this $5 eBay one above is the thinnest- anyone disagree?

Build Quality of the Hex Case

Not sure about the Stealth but I would assume it only fits 1 card.
Read some reviews on the Apple store that the iphone 4S version of the Hex case did not last long. Does the build quality of the iphone 5 version feel better?

I can't speak for those reviews, but I had the Hex Solo for the 4S too. I never had issues with mine. Time will only tell how this version lasts.

I have been using a HEX Solo for a while now and totally like it. The cards are held in tight, no issues there. Super slim case.

I believe the stealth can hold a card or two but it looks like its popular if you have an RFID "WavePay" style Visa/Mastercard.

Thanks. could have been possible that they put it through very rough use. How long did you use the Hex solo for 4 S?

Another note on the Speck ID case in case this helps anyone.

I rocked the naked 5 for two weeks then my Speck case came. Put it on, thought it was thick as hell. I've always had the Case-Mate ID case before, so I decided to compare the thickness of the two.

Wow. So apparently Speck's case that holds 3 ID's for the iPhone 5 is the same thickness as the Case-Mate ID case that holds 2 ID's for the 4/4S.

Props to Apple for making a thin phone I guess...

Anyway, it's been 3 weeks and while the case does make the phone thicker, I'm used to it already. Also, it's nice to be able to carry 3 to 4 cards instead of just 2. I'm actually thankful Case-Mate took their time in releasing their case and ignoring me on Twitter so I can go explore other options.

hey i am looking for a case that is thin, but holds cards. I don't care for protection. I also want the cards to be concealed. smartflex is way too thick and not is attractive. i wish there was a case with two tone designs. any suggestions?

I got this off Etsy. Delivery was good to UK. Orange is not quite as vibrant as it looks in the listing but materials are nice and i'm pleased with it.
It's nice to not have to carry my wallet around everywhere.

My co-worker walked in with an HEX Axis Wallet on his iPhone 5. I think I need to upgrade my 4 to a 5 after seeing this!

I actually got mine today and I am pretty disappointed with it. The quality is really not what I was expecting.

I've been noticing a lot of people actually like the cases with the front cover. Should I include those? If so, anyone willing to wrangle a list together for me?

Also... pics are up for the i5 iLid. This is what I am getting.

I just got the SF Bags/Waterfield Hint today. I've attached some pics.

Some impressions:
  1. The brown leather is high-quality and smells great.
  2. The fit is very snug, no worries that the phone will fall out. At the same time, the fit is so snug you won't be able to have anything more than a screen protector (and maybe a back protector) applied to your iPhone. Side protection like Ghost Armor will likely peel off from your phone from repeatedly sliding the phone in and out of the sleeve. Not sure about ultra thin cases, but my Diz TPU has no shot of going into this sleeve.
  3. As with any other sleeve, it's susceptible to lint and particles. This combined with the sliding action can't be good for your phone unless you keep your phone and sleeve clean regularly.
  4. The plastic window is a great idea, although with the iPhone 5's design there is no way to take a phone call with the phone inside the sleeve (no speaker or mic holes built in). Texting and very light browsing with the phone through the window is passable.
  5. The external pouch is good for about 5 cards.

Overall, I really like this case, although I wouldn't keep it as my only go to. Too many minor nagging usability issues to use it daily. I'll be using it for nights out and quick trips to the grocery store.

I think the Stealth by HEX is good because nobody can see your money and your card And second of all rather the putting everything inside in a secret place you can put money and even a key I think I ll order one but the problem is I cant be sure that it is solid ? I mean protect my phone or is it gonna be jammes after some time opening and closing that secret place ?
