I'm looking for the best smoke/clear case for black iPhone 5. I don't like the clear ones on the black which is why I want "smoke" clear. I want to be able to see the entire back of the phone, including the Apple logo. Something thin as well. Any recommendations appreciated as well as pictures :)

Thanks in advance!

Any experience from anyone on the quality of these cases on eBay?
Tbh, its a hit or miss, but usually a hit. My girlfriend got a case on eBay and I was totally blown away by the quality. Fitment was superb and really thin. I'll take some pictures in comparison with a naked iPhone 5 once I see her again.

Others who got the thin "desmay" ebay cases have said the quality are decent. Bumpers from ebay have generally gotten positive reviews.

If you want a thin case, your best bet is to find a polycarbonate case of some sort. TPU cases will inherently be thicker than polycarbonate. The thinnest cases are almost always polycarbonate.

The trouble I have found with nearly all of the super thin case's is no top-side or bottom-side protection. I have one that covers left right and top though - but its so thin, it falls off!

So far, Poetic Atmosphere eBay rip off seems the best - same as Poetic Atmosphere, but no lip, hence thinner.
