    I think my eyes are bleeding from ready all the posts about cases on this site. I am after a slim case (not silicone) that shows some of the bezel. So far, it seems the Griffin Reveal is the best bet. I looked at the SGP and Incipio as well but those show too much (i.e. all of the bezel). Are there any other cases I should look at that is similar to the Griffin?

    The Griffin Reveal shows no less bezel than the Incipio Feather. They both cover up the sides of the bezel, leave the bottom open, and leave the front facing portion of the bezel (framing the screen) visible.

    Ah - thanks for clarifying. And good luck with the case hunt... it's ridiculous how many brands, styles, and designs there are out there; and they all seem to have drawbacks of one type or another!

    I just pre-ordered the Agent 18 Eco Slider case. I had the same case for my original iphone and it was great. My only complaint was that taking it on and off scratched my phone. However, they seem to have fixed this by putting silicon pads on the inside to protect the case from scratches. The case also shows some of the chrome bezel. If you order today, you get it 50% off, plus if you use the coupon code "father" you get an additional "25". PLUS they have a competitor buy back program, which allows you to send a different case in to them and that gets you 50% off. Basically, its a good deal, and it shows some of the bezel, which is what you're looking for. You should check it out, agent18.com

    One more thing, agent 18 also has a slim shield coming out as well, and it looks very similar to the griffin reveal and the feather. You should check that out as well.

    I was gonna post about agent18's newest SlimShield as well, but dane beat me to it!

    I almost pre-ordered one yesterday, but it was gonna cost $22 to ship it to Hawaii. Guess I'll have to wait until that model is available from other retailers. :(

    Anyway, it looks great.

    Thanks everyone. I already have the ifrogz luxe. The only thing I dont like about is that it doesnt stay flat. I just ordered the Griffin Reveal today. I will look at the Agent18 case.

    Edit: I went ahead I purchased the Agent18 Slimshield in white. i couldnt pass up on the 50% off. Now I have a white and black case. Cool!

    I went with the black, but it was a tough decision. Normally I wouldn't get white, but the grey parts in it made it look pretty cool. I really liked the look of the new slim shield, but I'm going to wait until it comes out and see some reviews. Atleast with the eco slider I know I am getting a good case.
