    Like a dumbass I cracked the top corner of my phone and I can't stand to look at it. I'm not in the mood to pay to fix it so I'm going to cover it with a case. I tried an otterbox defender, which covered the crack perfectly, but was way too bulky. So I need suggestions for a relatively slim case (no silicone) that covers the top earpiece section like the otterbox. Is there anything out there? Help!

    I'd also look at a skin possibly. Mainly just for the front. It would have to be pretty fool-proof with the installation though. I'd freak out if it didn't go on perfectly.
    Or are there any slider-type cases that offer some top coverage?

    I can't get a picture of it, but the red line is spot on. The Otterbox covered it PERFECTLY, it was just way too bulky for me.

    Find a glass screen protector on amazon that has a white layer that goes around the screen and will cover the crack. I think that will work perfectly:)
    OP get this:
    GreatShield ICE MARK II 0.26mm Tempered Glass Screen Protector Shie... http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IAUK3XQ/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_7SYftb0P4YXXG

    That looks good, but I'm always so worried about getting a speck of dust stuck under there and ruining the whole thing. Especially for $20. Hmm...

    Just wanted to follow up on this and let anyone interested know that I picked up this and it did exactly what I was looking for perfectly!

    It took a little over a week for it to arrive, which isn't too bad. I'm just spoiled by Prime. It went on easy, no bubbles or specks of dust underneath, it's amazingly clear, and most importantly, I can't even tell my phone is cracked anymore, which puts my OCD to rest so I can wait it out to get the iPhone 6 this fall.
    They're available in a bunch of different colors so I would also recommend this to anyone looking to "change" the color of their phone.

    I'm glad it worked out for you. I'm the same way as you as putting on screen protectors:)
