    I just ordered a new SE and some screen protectors to go with it. I know because of the flat design of the phone, some cases push up the edges of the screen protector. I was hoping to get a few recommendations for cases from folks who use a screen protector. Which ones can be used in conjunction with, say, a .3mm screen protector w/o running into this issue?

    Edit: Whoops, should have posted this in Accessories!

    That's actually one I was looking at. How is the drop protection? I tend to be pretty klutzy with my phone.

    Magpul would be a good candidate. I have used them with tempered glass screen protectors with no issue. I have used both their field case and bump case on mine, the bump case is my favorite. I think they offer very good protection for being a slim non-bulky type case.

    Far fewer lifting issues with the flat iPhones. In fact, I dont recall running into it much at all with mine or my wife's.

    Just FYI: currently on my wife's SE she has an amFilm glass protector and a RhinoShield CrashGuard. Excellent combo.

    I've not found a case that doesn't work with the glass screen protectors I use (Tech Gear Glass Edition): I've got an Otterbox Symmetry and several cheap and cheerful cases from Amazon and they all work fine with it

    I've actually decided to go with the CrashGuard + tempered glass on both the front and back. I figure that's as good a way to protect the phone without resorting to a bulky case as there is.
