I like the look if these. I have a Swtcheasy Tones sitting under the tree and this case reminds me of that one.

Looks pretty nice. I can't vouch for how well they handle drops, though.

+1. I've had that case on my i5 since day one, and I absolutely love it.

As for the case the OP posted about, I like the concept, but I'm more of a minimalist when it comes to phone cases.

I like the look of that one too... But does the case wrap around the screen at all?? Looks like the screen could be at risk with a direct hit on concrete.

I like! I ordered a Switcheasy Tones and received it yesterday, but the colors of the black one aren't as dark as they looked in the pictures. This is more along the lines of what I wanted. I'm gonna order the slate one.

Just placed my order for the Slate SGP!

For anyone wanting the Switcheasy Tones for $18 shipped, I used this site below. Scroll to the very bottom and all the Tones are in stock in every color. It took about 2 weeks to get to me though.

I don't care for it but you need to purchase using your preferences and not those of random other people.

Subjective just as worth is on any topic. Only you can say if it's worth it to you.

I'll be curious to hear how the bulk of this compares with the Switcheasy Tones. It's definitely a nice-looking case. I would probably buy one if I didn't already have the Tones. Plus I'm holding out for a Magpul anyway.

the thread is asking other peoples opinions on the case and if any had experiences with it. your post is useless

You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but a lot of people would disagree with you. The Magpul case is probably one of the more popular cases on this message board. It's thin and protective, feels great in your hand and it's priced right. I've been through A LOT of iphone cases over the years and that's the one that has been my everyday case.

Everyone has their own wants and needs in a case and the Magpul just hits the sweet spot for me. Can't wait for it to come out.

I really like this case. I wanted try Tones but the reports of the degrading camera cutout is keeping me away. I hope this case is as thin as the Tones or Grip Candy Sheer! Doesn't look like it, though.

How does the camera cutout degrade?
