Need a good case to protect from scratches / drops, but thin and good looking.

    Hi all.. Just switched from Windows Mobile to iPhone and I'm loving it! But, I need a case now, lol. I've been looking at the Incase Slider and it seems to fit my needs, but people say it scratches the phone like hell.. does anyone have any other recommendations? It doesn't have to be a slider - it just has to offer drop protection, and be thin.

    Thanks!

    Seidio Innocase II (similar to the Incase but thinner) or iFrogz Luxe are two to look at.

    Don't like how it leaves the apple logo in the open :\

    you get a rounded sticker with it (like a screen shield).

    i love how the ifrogz looks but i heard the camera and buttons holes are too open to dust (that eventually can scratch the phone).

    np, but check it with the store before you order, i saw youtube reviews with the sticker and without so i don't know what it depends.

    You can also just cut up a crappy screen protector and put it over the logo. That's what I did with my crappy Steinheil Anti-Fingerprint (yeah, I said it;)).

    Check out the SwitchEasy Rebel and Neo. They're not the thinnest, but they aren't too thick. I was super picky about the thickness of my case and finally got both of these and they're prefect.

    The speck candyshell is a great case. Its not too bulky and adds good protection.

    Don't get the Rebel, terrible fit and even worst customer support in my experience. I love my Incipio Feather but it might not be what you are looking for if you want drop protection. Seido Innocase 2 is nice also.

    If you really need the drop protection though, go for the candyshell.
