    Any suggestions for a clear case for 5s? I'm looking for one with a soft rubberized feel or a hard case with soft coating on it.

    In terms of clear cases-they are all similar it is just whether u want it plastic or rubbery- i would just go look at walmart or best buy and u can probably find one for like $10

    Look at the cell helmet clear or smoke. Good, strong case and you get a warranty.

    Go with the Spigen Ultra Hybrid. It has a rubber grip and a plastic back.

    +1 on this case. Only issues I have with any of the clear cases though is they scratch easily. One of my Spigen cases scratched just by me putting the iphone in. My second one came scratched lol.

    Clear cases need that material that's on the back of the lg flex. The self healing material.

    Take a look at the Caudabe Veil thread on here if you want a quality clear case. It may or may not be enough protection for you. But in terms of sheer looks and feel, that's the best one IMO.

    Another nod here to the Caudabe Veil case in frost. Awesome semi clear case. Hard to tell you even have a case on your phone.

    No I think it's noticeable you have a case, especially when you notice the color.

    I looked at Caudabe Veil, but it doesn't cover top and bottom. Has anyone used Caudabe perimetric, looks like it covers all sides. Is it a hard plastic and soft touch? I am looking for a case which covers all sides and back.

    I normally don't do the case scene but I like the Tech 21 Impact mesh case.
    I just ordered the clear one.

    Just took the plunge on http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00EOLJRFK/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_TRx6sb0G63QX9 a little over £3 so willing to give it a go. My spigen case will be my weekend case as it's tough and I tend to go out more then especially if weather is ok. I'll use the clear one in the week at work as hopefully the colour will be more apparent showing my blue 5c beauty!

    I have the Luvitt Clearview and quite like it :) Durable, shows off the phone nicely. Only thing that can be a pain is being careful not to get lint trapped beneath it when putting it on - if you're the type to care about that sort of thing it'll drive you nuts!

    I had this for my 5. Decent case. It's got a plastic ring and a soft inner case. The thing was a bear to put on until I figured out that you have to install the soft case by itself first and then the plastic ring afterwards. It's a snug fit. Good if you're looking for lots of protection.

    Does it cover all sides, top and bottom and is it a hard plastic or soft touch?
    Ans have you tried their Streamline or do you know how is it different from Perimetric?

    Spigen Ultra Hybrid works OK but the clear back scratches up badly after a short period of time (yes, I did take the protective film off).
