    I cracked the very top of my phone and can't stand to look at it, but also can't bring myself to spend $150 to get it replaced. I'm looking for suggestions on a case that covers at least the top bezel of the phone, like the Otterbox Defender, but much slimmer. I tried the Defender and it covered the crack perfectly but was way too bulky for my pocket. Help me out with some options!

    I picked it up from the Apple. Couldn't be any happier.

    I have the Spigen Ultra Hybrid and a Slim Armor S along with an iLoome tempered glass. Both are thin and cover very well.

    Well, you can always go the ********** or decalgirl route. They have skins that cover the bezels but not the screen. I can't think of any slim iPhone case that meet your criteria. They're all bulky--Otterbox, Pelican, LifeProof, Speck Candyshell w/shield, etc.

    The Power Support Air Jacket might interest you Tardman91.

    Actually,
    I like the Ultra Hybrid of Spigen.
    It doesn't make your iPhone bulky and it let it show off its original design with good protection.

    Neither of those cover the top/bottom of the front.

    The Power Support does offer coverage for the top and bottom. Are you looking for something more than this?

    Yes. I'm looking for something that covers the face of the phone at at least the top, kind of like the Otterbox Defender, but not as bulky.
