Can you recommend a good thin case for the 5s white?

    I have used Case-Mate's barely there cases for years. They provide some protections without wrapping onto the front, which I hate.

    This is what I got for my Silver 64GB:

    http://www.amazon.com/LUVVITT®-Anti...9711995&sr=8-3&keywords=iphone+5s+clear+cover

    I bought it about a week ago when it was $9.95 shipped.
    It's SUPER thin!


    Also, If the flash hole isn't big enough, i'll contact the company or return it to Amazon.

    The last thing I need are screen protectors! I have't seen any confirmation that the iPhone 5 screen protectors will fit the 5s, due to the ring around the home button.

    The wrap stops the glass/plastic edge from getting crap stuck in it....not many cases do this, they only cover the chamfers. You'll see!!

    The Graft Leverage feels like it has a tighter fit than many of the "slip-in" type cases. I've had the Spigen and I love it. I've also owned the Magpul and UAG cases as well as trying some of the cheaper shells.
    So far the Graft is my favorite.

    You can use it with or without the back.

    The white seems to look good with the black Graft case.

    I've been using Barely There cases since the original iPhone and I've never had a problem with this.

    yeah, it really depends on your personal needs/wants in a case.
    i've been very happy with the Switcheasy Tones on my iP5. had it almost a year now, no complaints. it is very thin as far as full cases go, but still offers protection all the way around and an ever so slight lip to protect the screen.

    I bought one of Apple's new cases. Maybe a bit overpriced, but it is really thin and form fitting for a leather/cloth case. It feels nice, but I am sure there are better options.

    My main complaint is that the volume buttons are a bit harder to press than most cases.

    But the main reason I bought it is because it was so thin, it barely adds any bulk, maybe 2mm on each side. Plus unlike the hard plastic cases the microfiber lining should prevent scratches on the inside if any dust gets trapped.

    All the joins make it untidy looking. Each to their own I guess!

    iFrogz Ultra Lean. Very thin. Doesn't offer much more than scratch protection for the back of the phone.

    Currently using a nice Diztronic TPU case. Fits the 5S perfectly and doesn't block the camera at all. Nice and thin and buttons are easy to press.

    Don't forget the 5s has a bigger flash so a lot of those cases for the iphone5 may block the flash or cause glare when taking photos

    the saturn does look really nice. but no-go for me because they left the whole bottom (exposed top too, correct?).
