    i'm looking for very thin case with a hard lip around the screen to protect from dropping on the face of the phone or damage the screen protector from the table.

    hard case, not silicone.

    i really like the feather but i dont know if the end of the case is in the same "height" like the screen glass or above.

    anyway, any case like the contour flick will be good, i love this case, the only issue is the hairline scratches on the back (its an awful material, i dont know what they thinked about).

    I'm using the black feather, it's 'my perfect case' but ur correct, the lip does not go past the bezel. So no lay flat.

    Don't rule our iSkin solo. Although you don't want silicone it is sort of an inbetween for hard case and silicone. It is my second favorite case. I use both. The iskin I think is as thin profile you'll find that also affords lay flat protection.

    Check out the Seidio Innocase.

    the innocase isn't bulky but its definitely not thin like the flick (and i don't even mention the feather...).

    thanks anyway for the suggestion.

    Hello..here is my situation.

    I would like an ultra thin case that adds hardly any bulk, will also cover the back and the bezel from marking up. I also want the case to be quite snug to stop fluff and dirt being trapped. I would also like a smooth case, not a rubber one that hangs in your pocket...that really is frustrating.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Power Support Air Jacket is very thin, adds very little bulk and has a nice rubberized finish (but doesn't cover entire bezel, though).

    +1 on PS Air Jacket. Best thin case there is but somewhat pricey.

    Is there not a case like the Air Jacket that protects the bezel? :confused: There must be right?

    The only case like the Air Jacket that I have found which offers a bit more bezel protection is the Incipio Feather. I have not found any other ones that are quite as thin and totally cover the bezel. The Seidio Innocase however is quit thin for a slider case and does cover the entire bezel. That is probably your best bet.

    I will tell you though that nothing will prevent your bezel from getting some scratches on it. Put a case on it, and the case will scratch it. Don't cover it with a case, and lint and dirt will scratch it. It is just that prone to scratching. :p Just my 2c from experience.

    And by the way, I do own all of the above cases plus about 8 others so I have a pretty good first hand knowledge of these cases.

    :-( I just want a think plastic case that protects the bezel and back without the bulk. A thinner incase slider would be good!

    Oh no, on my last two iPhones when they were marked up i was like what the hell...might aswell go naked now!

    griffin

    I have found the griffin elan series to be thin and have the lip for screen protection.
