Ive just sold my note 2 and ordered my iphone 5 which arrives monday.

I've ordered some screen protectors but the question now is do I put a case on it?

I've very careful with my phones and "hardly" ever drop it.

I can't normally stand a case on a phone i like it to be as small as possible.

Which cases are the best is any?

I just got the iPhone 5 a month ago and was using an S3 prior to getting it. You should get a speck case candy shell just because its in the middle of not too bulky and not too thin. But then again there's hundreds of iPhone cases out there. I don't really like thick cases so the candy shell is as thick as I would go in a case and even thinner. I almost never drop my phones either.

First off, keep the note and you wouldn't have to worry about a case for the iPhone 5. I made the same switch and came running back... Problem solved, or go with HTC one, stellar!!

There are hundreds of case related threads in the accessories forum, where this belongs. I would suggest a minimal case at least to protect from scratches. I prefer the diztronic.
