    Looking for a bumper that

    -relatively thin
    -fits powersupport front and back screen protectors
    -*proven not to scratch the sides of the phone*
    -unbranded/ small logo only

    any recommendations? if no bumpers are available, is there any thin cases?

    +1 I'd love to see some cases in this thread.

    I'm using the Speck PixelSkin HD. Real nice.

    SGP NEO HYBRID 2 EX

    That is the most minimalist bumper you can get right there.I had it and loved it.

    Do those NEO Hybrids last? I've heard about durability issues re: the plastic ring.

    Yea. Mine broke after a while. I would call the durability pretty suspect on them

    That does indeed look sweet. I have two concerns tho, there doesn't appear to be any insulation between the case (aluminum) and the phone (antenna) and since it snaps together I wonder if I'll have pieces of it flying everywhere as soon as I drop my phone... just a thought. You'll have to let us know how it is once you get it.

    I'm a little concerned about it catching an edge in my pocket and disassembling itself while walking down the street.

    On their website they show a drop test, a woman dropping it from about shoulder height, and not only does it not snap apart when it lands, the case doesn't appear to have any damage, and the phone is completely pristine underneath. And since it doesn't fall asleep from a 1.5m drop I'd say it is highly unlikely it'll disassemble in your pocket.

    I do wonder how it'll do with a screen protector or skin. I saw a review video that had a screen protector start to bubble on the edges after it had been on for a minute or so...

    Let us know when you get it!

    Where can I find this? SGP's site doesn't have one that is labeled "2" as far as I can see?

    i just went with the incase snap case, in black.

    Fits perfect, does what it needs, its a cover for the rear and the front has a little extra material to help protect the front glass.

    will be getting a good screen protector for it and that is all.

    While we're on the topic of incase, is there a reason why you chose to go with the snap case instead of the slider incase?
