I'm looking for a good thin case for my white iPhone 5. I would like it to be very thin and minimalistic. It also has to not be clear, because nothing bothers me more than dust and stuff under the case if I can see it. Right now tops on my list is the white Spigen Saturn. I know there's like a billion different cases out there so I wanted to see what others were using, since I'm sure there's brands I've never even heard of out there making great cases.

I'd suggest the Ultra Thin Air from Spigen.

Check out beyzacases I really like the snap for iphone 5. It's different but minimal and i think its pretty cool. Or even the myla?

Spigen Saturn is definitely the best looking in my opinion for a white phone

I went with the Elago Outfit and am very happy so far. We'll see how it holds up. I might be on the lookout for something a little more protective too.

I use Caudabe - The Veil. It's the thinnest case that still offers descent protection that I've found.

On my black iPhone 5 using the darker, matte color; no spec of dust is visible. The white version of the case is frosted should obscure dust, though I don't expect much to get in there anyway - the fit is so precise it leaves little room for anything to get inside.

Op I feel your pain...I'm still looking for a case for my white iphone...just want something that looks nice and simple and offers decent protection.

So frustrating...

(I want something that covers all the sides and back too btw)

Thanks, but not even close to something I want. :D
I just want a plain simple looking case with decent protection...and doesn't change the look of the phone.

Go with the Elago Outfit. See my post a few up from here. Fits great, good protection for a slim case, and the aluminum back panel matches the look of the phone very nicely.

Just returned one :D
I actually bought it in part of that post as it does look nice...I prefer full body protection and have never had one with the exposed ends. Nice enough looking but I think I prefer full body and only white.

Thanks :D

Choose your color

Would try it if they made a white one. ;)

I'm going for the Ringke Slim Logo Cut Out in LF white. It's only $10.99 and its cutouts were thought-out very well (I like the flush cutaway near the top of the sleep/wake button because it is easier to access as opposed to feeling the lip present with other cases of this design). It's nice having the Apple logo cutout as well, although it's a shame that the two-tone glass and aluminum isn't showcased.

Wow, that looks better than I remember! I have the black lf on my black. does the white chip at all? I am leaning towards white for the 5s, so im trying to keep my eyes open for a white case

I have the white one without the cutout and it has held up very well. It sometimes grabs the color of your jeans or random dirt, but it rubs off entirely with a few wipes of a microfiber cloth. I anticipate that the cutout version will hold up just the same.

I've got the Caudabe Veil as well. Frost on my white iPhone 5. Just a fantastic case because it's like there's no case on the phone at all. Excellent value too. I bought mine on Amazon for $15.
