    So my Air Skin arrived today for the iPhone 6. Wow, it really is thin. I had no idea that .4 would be like this. I also have an Spigen Thin Fit and I expected it to be just like that, only thinner.

    This feels exactly like what those plastic folders are made out of. I understand now why this offers no drop protection.

    Are all of the .35/.4 cases like this or are some of them actually more shell-like? Maybe this is the best you can get at this level of thinness.

    Curious what the Caudabe Veil feels like in comparison.

    What color did you get is it the Soft Clear one? Can you post a picture? I was curious how clear it actually is or if it's foggy like.

    I'm interested in pictures as well. I'm trying to decided between 3 of the really thin cases.

    Since I'm getting a space gray phone, I got gray. That's exactly what it looks like - gray. It's supposed to be translucent, and maybe it is, but just looking at it looks like a medium color gray.

    what i didn't realize is that it's so thin that it's actually bendy. it is stiff plastic, that is flexible. like i could bend it and i bet i would/could put a crease in it.

    it actually does look translucent when you put something else under it.

    I purchased Spigen's Thin Fit Case. It's thin but not to the point where you can bend it substantially. It definitely feels shell-like.

    My Spigen Air Skin ($16) arrived today and it's exactly what I wanted. It's an extremely slim case just like the Caudabe Veil ($15) case I had for my iPhone 5s.

    If you're looking for a slim case, this is the one to get (at least for now). It looks like the iPhone 6 with this case will be thinner than a naked iPhone 5s.


    Here's some quick pictures I took comparing it to my iPhone 5s:

    Received my Spigen Air Skin case from Amazon yesterday; ended up buying the Soft Clear version. I bought it to have something temporary until my Sena Cases Heritage Ultraslim pouch ships, but I may leave it on if I end up liking it. With the exception of a few months with bumpers on my iPhone 4/4s, I've found I like using the phone without a case on it, but protected with a pouch when in my pocket.

    If it's only 0.4mm thick, does that mean the phone still lightly wobbles when placed on the back? Because the camera is protruding by how much, 0.8mm?

    Here are a couple quick photos I took... the second one has my wife's gold iPhone 5s behind it to help show how transparent the case is.

    Sweet thanks for the pictures, Storm. Looks good. I wish it were clearer but not as bad as I thought maybe I'll get one.

    Oh boy looks like a big gap, how does it feel when swiping from the edges? Can you feel the edges of the protector where it's an annoyance?
