    I know that I might be the only person that might feel this way, but does anyone know if there is something I could put on my case that would make it heavier? I don't like how lite the iphone 5 is, but I do like kind of slim case. Is there something like lead tape that could had some weight that would work with a case?

    Also is there a slim type of case that does add some pretty good weight to the phone?

    Slim armor with glass screen protector has some heft to it

    You will get used to the weight in about a month. Just give it some time, and then you won't be able to go back.

    This. The magic lightness wears off, gains ounces on it's own.

    As silly as that sounds, it's true. It does feel as if it gets heavier then fills the mental "sweet spot" for weight. Not sure why. At first I really wasn't a fan of the 5 being so light, but now it just feels right. :confused:

    I have had the iphone 5 since Nov. and still don't like how light it is. I don't know it just seems cheap when a phone is so light. I know the phone is one of the best made phones it just bothers me. It looks like I will just have to like it.

    Light doesn't equate to cheap. It's hundreds of times more expensive to make something like a phone lighter. Apple actually spent several tens of million dollars optimizing the aluminium shell to be as strong and light as possible. It's engineered like a NASA carbon fiber glider or a million dollar supercar.

    The lighter the phone is the more durable it is as well.

    I do understand it is not cheap and is a very well build phone. I was just saying lite just kind of makes the phone to me seem cheap.
