    I have been through a lot of cases for my 3g/ 3gs and still have yet to find the perfect case. I have used:
    Incase slider-- Felt like it scratched the phone, did not have a very good fit (sides squeaked)
    Switcheasy Neo-- good design, crappy durability
    Incipio Feather- really liked this case, but i like having the bezel covered
    Speck Candyshell-- way too bulky, and chrome showing
    Seidio Innocase 2-- my closest to a perfect case, but apple logo cutout was annoying.
    Rebel Scholar-- same as slider

    I am basically looking for a fairly low profile case (in black) that isnt too bulky and covers the bezel.

    I am thinking about picking up the rebel serpent in black, as i have been curious about this case, but I am worried about the saggy bottom. Any owners want to chime in on how the case has lasted?

    Also looking at the iskin solo

    I have been down that road as well and so far the iFrogz has been on my phone the longest....

    mrXniick,

    It might help if you tell us what you are looking for in a case and why each case that you have tried doesn't do it for you.

    Try the most recent agent 18. I've also been through a few of those cases you've had. Here is the link to the agent I'm telling you about. No scratching the exterior of the phone while it's sliding on and on. Shows the bezel but has a layer of silicone or plastic part of those case that keeps the glass and bezel touching he surface while flat on it's face.
    You won't regret this case. Also on the outer edges are silicone bumpers for grip.

    mrXniick,

    I have looked at or owned all the cases you mention, plus many more, and Seidio Innocase 2 is the best and I am completely happy with it. The latest version of the case has a clear shield that protects the visible logo. Personally, I am indifferent to the window on the back. It does not bother that it is there and it would not bother if it were not. Seems like a non-issue to me. Why does it bother you so?

    Plus, sometimes I need a holster and the Seidio Innocase holster the best as well. You can't beat the combination.
