    Okay, so just retired my 3GS and got a 4S. And with that comes the search for a new case.

    I had a black matte Incase Slider on my 3GS which I loved. I've been looking and looking for something similar for the 4S but feel like I'm having a hard time finding anything that fits my criteria....which are:

    - exposed buttons (not a fan of button covers)
    - slim, minimalist design
    - classy: something that retains the premium feeling of the iPhone
    - lay on table design (ie. case extends beyond face of the phone)
    - price not really much of an issue

    A few I've considered based on online reviews/opinions:

    - Speck Candyshell seems to get good reviews, but the button covers are a drawback. Also seems a little "young"
    - Magpul Field Case, again....button covers
    - Switcheasy - various cases but there seem to be fitment issues with the 4S

    Am considering a few of the various wood cases like Signicase, iTimber, etc. but I jog a fair amount with my phone in my hand and not sure how the wood would hold up to sweat.

    Hoping that I'm just missing a few obvious choices due to the gamut of cases out there.

    Thanks for any help!

    Thanks for the suggestions guys.

    Remembered one further thing that is fairly important...a "lay on table" design so the front edge of the case slightly extends beyond the face of the phone.
