    I was looking for a case with the following attributes:
    1) Very thin.
    2) Covers the camera lens.
    3) Folio type case. I don't use a screen protector, so I needed something that will protect the screen. I also wanted to try a folio case to with a cutout for the speaker so I could use it with the flip closed in order to keep the screen clean (my iPhone 5 screen was always dirty after a phone call).
    4) No lip. I tried the Ringke case and the lip always got in the way.

    I tried this case by Rock and I absolutely love it (so far).

    It has a "transparent" flap, so you can see who is calling and you can slide to answer the call. For anything else you have to flip the cover.

    That is pretty nice. It looks like the cover folds completely flat against the back?

    ...they have some here:

    Looks like a very interesting and unique case! The fact that you can answer a call even with the flap closed - thats a unique feature just in itself!!

    Gonna see if there are any reviews of this on the web anywhere.....

    EDIT : Seems like this case is only for the iPhone 6+....can't find any for the iPhone 6 :(

    ...yea, found some on eBay (UK) as well. Only £10 however, they all come from Hong Kong so could be looking at a very lengthy shipping time.

    I could not find any mention of this case anywhere -- I just took a chance and bought it from ebay...not knowing what I would get. The case, as it turns out, is very well made.

    Shipping took a couple of weeks (to California).

    ...might just get one - at only £10, thats a pretty good price!!!

    Can you use the phone with the flap closed & does the flap actually wake up the screen like the iPad smart cover does?!

    No...the flap does not wake up the phone. You can use the phone with the flap closed, but everything is really blurry and sometimes gestures are not detected by the phone.

    The cover is basically there to protect your screen, to keep the screen clean, to see the time, and to see who is calling and slide to answer the call. It is not a screen protector -- you have to flip the cover to use the phone.

    Is the phone easy to remove from this case? I switch often so I need something that pops in and out without too much hassle (please ignore my duplicate question in the other post - just saw this one). Thanks!

    I really like this case except for the hole in the back. Do you know any case like this without it?

    It is very easy to remove the phone from the case.

    I have not seen anything like this case without the hole.

    No case for the iPhone is going to wake it up from sleep as its a feature that Apple has never included on the iPhones like they have on the iPads.

    I like this case, except for one major issue. I absolutely HATE the cutouts for the Apple logo. It is just another opening for crap to get at the phone and a chance for damage to the phone.
