Case that doesn't cover the rounded edges?

    I love the feel of edge swiping on the curved glass, but I think I should be using a case. Anyone know of any cases that maintain the smooth edge swipe feel?

    I was just about to post this exact question as a new thread; I love the way the edge of the glass feels on the 6 and I really am worried about losing that when I get a case.

    Does anyone have suggestions?

    EDIT: To answer my own question, I found some cases which do seem to expose the rounded edges of the glass, just slightly, in this thread:

    I wish there was a case which wrapped around the four corners of the phone enough to hold the screen off the surface of a table when in the face-down position, yet fully exposed the curved glass on the side edge.

    Thanks for responding!

    This is exactly what I was imagining as well. I think cases like this will come eventually. It's just a matter of waiting... which is the hard part.

    The case with the best feel in hand will no doubt be the Apple leather case.

    It won't safeguard from a 2 story fall, but from waist height should be OK.

    This case looks beautiful but the problem I have seen is that the aluminium actually scratches the corners(at least on the iPhone 5 version).

    Will have to see when people get them.

    I'm also looking for this type of case that still offers lip protection :(

    I mentioned this in another thread, but the Switcheasy numbers case provides a small lip and does not cover the rounded edges. Although not identical to not having a case at all, I still am able to feel the roundness of the edge of screen.
