    Hi guys, wondering if anyone has seen something for iPhone 4S with the following characteristics:

    1. Minimal
    2. Color options besides black
    3. Protected cutout in the back to show mirrored Apple logo
    4. INSIDE lining soft like rubber or silicone
    5. Not ugly.


    So far, I can't find one (online) that I can verify WON'T leave scratches on my phone, that is also MINIMAL. I don't need it to survive a nuclear war. And too many cases severely downplay the logo or overdo it (like with raised jewels). I like the shiny, mirrored logo.

    I put a beautiful case on my last phone but when I took it off, the back and edges of the phone were all scratched up :(

    Thanks!

    Everything except for the Apple logo part - Speck Candyshell - https://www.speckproducts.com/collections/candyshell

    #1 on his/her list was "minimal". The Candyshell is ANYTHING but minimal.

    Maybe something like the Desmay Slight? If you get the clear/translucent gray you can still see the Apple logo (but it doesn't have the cutout like the Otterbox Commuter). It's also made of a flexible material that shouldn't scratch the back of your phone. One key to not scratching the back of your phone, though, is to remove your case from time to time and clean out any crud that gets in there.

    I'd say Candyshell is minimal, depending on how you look at it. It's a great design.

    Oh, I'm not downing the Candyshell...it's one of my favorite cases. When the OP said minimal, though, the Candyshell would be one of the last cases I'd have thought of. :D

    It's more minimal than others, I guess, but yeah, not most minimal.

    I would probably say Apple Bumper is for you (OP). It's kinda like a CandyShell for the side of your phone, only. Very, very minimal.

    Check out the iSkin Solo. It's everything you described. It's one of my go-to cases when I'm not using my Mophie juice pack air.
