    I ordered a case mate barely there in black for my Iphone 5 white. I've been using barely there since my Iphone 4 and 4s. This one has rubbery feeling and the inside has a rubber padding. Can't wait for my Iphone 5 this friday!

    It looks like by the description that case-mate thought that Apple was gonna call this phone "the new iphone". They must have at least had the packaging made a little time ago.

    It doesn't cover much of the top of the phone. Your phone will get messed up quick on top.

    I've been using barely there since 4 and 4s and no problems on top. I put my Iphone alone in my pocket.

    Thanks! I love 1911s

    I have been using barely there for the 4/4s. Had the same case for 2 years and it really does a good job and adds grip to the phone.

    I just got my case today from casemate too. I am trying to understand how they know for sure it will fit since I doubt iPhone gave them a mock up/exact dimensions. Im guessing they saw the leaks and based it on that. Sure hope they got it right.

    FYI I got the blue and the black. The blue is lighter then I thought so I will send that one back. It would look good with the white iphone though.

    Shame they don't have this in see through black. I think Incase is the only one?

    Is it rubbery and bendable? So, to clarify, is it easy to bend around, and easy to take-off?

    It looks glossy. I have a case which was glossy and it scratched way to easy which really annoyed me!

    its a matte non slippery finish. Its a fairly hard material like the previous casemate barely there that works great.

    Will it add a lip to the front or will it be flush?
