    looking for something unobtrusive...seems lots of manufacturers don't have their cases lined up yet.

    what is everyone who wants a slim case ordering?

    Couple options (but not available yet)

    I have and like both the Pinlo Slice and the Desmay Slight for my iPhone 4. Will definitely order one of these when available.

    is it true desmay has zero lip, so you can't place phone face down without scratching the screen?

    What are the top premium case brands? For a slim light but protecting case? I was a completely clear case with a slight lip on the screen size? Nothing to bulky or cheap looking..

    Sometimes I don't want to notice me screen light up and distract me. "Do not disturb" will help at night, but there's time at work when I'm just too involved, and alerts just distract me from getting stuff done.

    I'm hoping InCase releases a Slider for the iPhone 5 much like theirs for the 4.

    It's such an excellent, slim, non-bulky case, and offers excellent drop protection to the phone.

    With the iPhone 5 being as thin as it is, maybe the new slider will only make the phone as thick as an uncased iPhone 4!

    I've had a couple of those and have been happy with them. I think they are already selling iPhone 5 ones too.

    This time around I ordered a customized slim case from Etsy. It'll probably get here before my phone haha

    I've preordered an Incase Sider. I've owned every generation of iPhone and have used an Incase slider with every generation and just love the case dearly.

    I have had this brand slim case on my iPhone 4 and bought the blue one yesterday for my iPhone 5. I love how slim they look and they last if you don't drop your phone that much haha. :D you could buy the ones on the link I have up there for 24 but its that expensive cause it comes with a screen protector. I bought mine off amazon for 10.99 plus shipping. Heres the link for that one: http://www.amazon.com/elago-Slim-Ca...1347836668&sr=8-15&keywords=iphone+5+elago+s5

    Both are very well made. It will depend on how they design them for the iPhone 5. The Pinlo has the volume buttons protected, which I like, but then is a little too open at the dock area. The Desmay has openings that are a little large for the volume and mute, but does have more protection near the dock. Really close to a tie!

    Then also check out the Pinlo Slice. Thinnest and matte. But if you ever drop your phone, the case will crack.
