    I bought a black Peel and black Apple Leather Case for my space gray iPhone 5s. I just put the screen protector (Spigen Crystal from Amazon). I haven't decided which case to use...usually I carry it in my front pocket.

    Don't have the gold but have a silver with the Caudabe. Then I found that you can get generic ones for $6 to $8 on ebay. :( Here's mine.

    Using flash and no flash.

    Close, but the Caudabe and Peel both have two separate cutouts for the volume controls. I've seen those types available on ebay too, but the one linked above has just one larger cutout for the volume controls.

    Here's a link to some that have the same cutouts as the Caudabe and Peel.

    Those are close but almost twice as thick. caudabe and peel are 0.35 mm thick, the ones in your link are 0.5 mm thick.

    thanks for the pics???
    so with the frost veil, you can definitely see the silver color???
    if so, then i would assume the gold will show as well.

    Yes, I can see the silver. However, the frosted clear will diffuse some of the light and dull the color you see a bit. The thinner the case, the more you will see through it. The peel and caudabe are only 0.35 mm thick. Some are as thick as 0.5 mm, which will make the color less visible.

    Good catch. I have the Caudabe, so I can't speak to how noticeable the extra .15mm is. I didn't look very hard on ebay, so maybe there are other cases available that are exact matches.

    Do any of these have a lip on the front? If you put your phone down screen-side down, would the screen touch the surface?

    No lip, so screen will touch surface if you lay screen down. I have a tech armor screen protector on mine.
