    Someone already mentioned TORRAS, but I'd like to also suggest the Miracase Liquid Silicone. The pro about this case is that the bottom is covered as well with the individual holes for the speaker holes (kind of like this year's Smart Battery Case).

    I haven't read any reviews, but I'd consider Spigen's version, too, since they're a trusted brand (it costs the most out of my suggestions, though).

    I just placed an order for the Miracase Liquid Silicone, so if you want to hold off on ordering one, I can give you an honest review (I'll compare to the Smart Battery Case and the Apple Silicone Case). I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like the TORRAS case is the slimmer of the three I suggested. I've been reading that the Spigen one is the less grippy of the bunch, so it doesn't attract lint as much. I don't know if any of those matter to you.

    Check it out on Casetify. Best phone case I have ever had.

    Here are my thoughts of the Miracase Liquid Silicone case:
    - The Miracase is wider and taller than the Apple silicone case. The Miracase also has a taller lip.
    - The Miracase silicone doesn’t feel as nice as the one from Apple. The Miracase silicone isn’t as soft and is actually grippier (I really like how soft Apple’s silicone feels).
    - The buttons on the Miracase are more tactile, but they’re recessed into the case. This might not sound like a big deal since they’re easier to find than buttons that are flush, but your fingers have to “travel” farther, so it actually makes pressing them getting used to.
    - The bottom of the Miracase is covered and has individual holes for the speakers. However, there are more holes on the case than speaker holes (on the left of the lightning port, there are four speaker holes but seven holes on the case).

    If this case felt as nice as the Apple’s, I might be able to overlook some of its flaws, but in the time it took me to write this review, my black case is now white from all the lint and dust it mysteriously attracted because it’s so much more grippy.

    Spigen Silicone Fit is a pretty good replication
