    There's many out there. I personally would go with front and back screen protectors and some type of bumper. But if you wanna stick to a case that shows the phone's design somewhat, try incipio NGO which you can grab at your local walmart. And also take a look at speck seethru/satin. Those are some awesome cases. Take a look at them.

    The switcheasy nude is very thin but also very scratch-tastic! Also very difficult to get off, I broke my one when taking it off.

    incase snap, pinlo slice, any bumper style case with a screen protector on the back is my favorite.

    Totally agree about the SwitchEasy Trim! I have one on my iP4 right now and it's great. It is a nice solid case, but it isn't too bulky. For the $19.99 price tag, you really can't beat it.

    Lifeproof has a nice, thin case. And a major plus is that it's waterproof! The only bad part is that it is not out yet :(

    Edit: Forgive me, but it looks like this case does not show the back of the iPhone... Sorry!

    Check out the iSkin Solo. It's an amazing case and it comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Does anyone know a good case like the OP is describing but that has a lip that slighty covers the front bezel? So that I can lay my iPhone flat on a surface without it touching The screen?

    The Switcheasy TRIM has a nice lay on table design.

    There's also the Griffin Reveal, which is $20 at Wal-Mart

    I'd get the NGP, shows off the back, has lay on table, and provides amazing protection for the price

    It's pretty nice. Good quality and build and the matte one hides scratches a little better.

    the caze cases look killer. Probably going to pickup the zero 5 case. its real close to the switcheasy nude and it fits the VZW iPhone. Its very minimal, looks like the phone is naked.

    Anyone have any experience with this one from Ultra Case?

    I just bought an iPhone 4 and want to protect it without a lot of bulk.

    :)

    I've been alternating between a few bumpers (a black Apple one, a red/black one, and a white/black one), and using a screen protector on the back of the iPhone. It's been working really well and is very minimalistic. My iPhone is still mint, so this combo obviously protects very well.

    I bought the bumpers here: http://www.sw-box.com/wholesale-Iphone-4-Bumper-Cases.html

    And the screen protectors here: http://www.sw-box.com/wholesale-Iphone-Screen-Protector.html

    I've ordered from them twice. The shipping isn't the fastest, but the products are very nice.

    Never tried the Vulcan but haven't heard nothing but good things, I really like the seethru satin though for sure. They are similar cases so it's your choice.
