    I like the Griffin Reveal case you just linked with the rubber bumper.

    One of those with a crystal clear smooth as glass screen protector would do nicely.

    I currently have a white one on my white 5. I've already noticed the white silicon/rubber bumper has picked up discoloration from my scrubs.. There is a bluish tint to it now.

    Just food for thought.

    I am still enjoying it very much despite that.

    I've had one on my phone since the launch date, I like it for what it is, but I am not a fan of silicone/rubber cases since I don't like them getting stuck in my pockets but its a good temporary case until a nice plastic or aluminum case becomes available. I am a big fan of element cases so I'll probably end up with one of those. I bought the bundle pack at Best Buy which was 35 bucks for the case and Invisible shield, I sold the Invisible shield on ebay and after all that I guess I ended up paying 15 for the case.

    I got mine at the Verizon store. I think it was around $26.00 with tax.

    I have one on mine as of now, the back shows scuffs and scratches really easy. Waiting on my iCarbons to come in the mail and then will be replace those for the case.

    I had the iPhone 4 version of this case when the first Verizon iPhone 4 came out. It lasted till the week of the release of the iPhone 5. basically the glue/adhesive that holds the rubber and the back cover came off on some parts of the cover and it separated on some parts of the phone...maybe half and on the corners. it's a great case if you don't want to bulk up your phone. I currently have the iPhone 5 version on my iPhone 5 and the rubber feels stiffer than that of the iPhone 4 and hopefully it last just as long :)!!!

    I believe all Verizon Stores sells this. I'm not even surprised that it's back-ordered haha!

    Looking at the pics Booch posted, that camera cutout is WAY too big. I had one of these for my 4S and loved it, but if the hole is that oversized, thats a deal breaker.

    My wife has the white one on her white iPhone and it's getting dirty. The silicone rubber seems to hold dirt.

    It's actually better than the previous reveal because the flash is less effected now.

    Also have this for my wife's phone. It is terrible. The back gets full of debris and the camera opening just looks terrible. it is much too big for the phone.

    i purchased one and I love it, the back does get scratched up pretty easily but i really like the slimness and the clear back which lets you see the back of the phone. I had one for my iphone 4 and i knew going into it that it scratches easily on the back Also, the camera hole on the back was enlarged because it used to suppress the flash when it was a smaller opening

    overall for a $15-20 case i'm happy it shows off the design of the phone and the different color choices are cool i bought a black and a blue

    lol just returned this case to Bestbuy, I really like the way it looks on the screen side, but it feels bulkier than the TPU case I have now in my pocket and holding it, the back clear plastic scratches so easily without ever touching a surface, I'm not a fan especially for the price. I love my new TPU case for a 1/3 of the price.

    Can you link where you got it? In the market for a tpu and ordered this to hold me over until I find the perfect one http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160885118677

    Still haven't received it though so still looking
