    Hey guys--

    Saw a woman on the subway this morning with an iPhone 5(s?-hopefully!) case that I thought looked pretty cool. She was WAY too involved in whatever song she was listening to and whatever book she was reading on her Kindle app for me to bother her, otherwise I would have asked her directly.

    The one thing I remember about the case is that the piece covering the lock/unlock button said "Pwr" and was flush to the rest of the case. The +/- volume rocker buttons were also flush to the case.

    Anyone know what case this is? It was black...

    Clear back? Spigen Ultra Hybrid. I have this case. Comes in black and gray.

    That's the one, thanks! I'm not sure if hers was clear back -- looking at the site now, I'm thinking she probably had the gray. What's the difference in size between the hybrid and the regular? I noticed that there's no cutout for the apple logo on the clear one (obviously) -- does this make it thinner?

    It has a lay on table, also the edges follow the chamfered edge shape, so it's easy to grip and it's shape doesn't dig into your fingers like my Belkin View case did. I don't think it has a "regular" version, the "hybrid" is just a naming thing. The backs pretty thin, although it gets scratched easily, which is unavoidable with hard plastic. Overall it looks and feels great.

    Wow, $10? That's worth trying it out! Does that kind of pricing exist for the Tough Armor version?

    And it comes with two screen protectors as well if you're into those. I guarantee this is a case you're gonna be keeping for a while. The tough version runs for 24 bucks.

    Thanks guys, just placed an order for the Tough Armor! I've never personally been a fan of a clear back for my iPhone case, so I'll give the Smooth Black Tough Armor version a shot.
