    just curious to see what everyone is looking at in terms of thin clear like cases to show off the awesomeness of the phone. So far my top two are either the switcheasy nude or the sgp ultra thin...

    Senna Ultrathin Leather Case

    Complete coverage, thin supple leather, very strong, durable and scratch resistant.

    Covers front to back so no screen protector is needed. Perfect if you like to carry your phone in your pocket.

    I've used these for my iPhone 4, and iPhone 4S. I've been very satisfied.

    I definitely want that SGP Ultra Thin Air case, but I have considered all 3 options in the poll. It sucks none of them are available yet, but SGP told me the Ultra Thin Air should be available early next week.

    I actually want black.. crystal clear cases scratch way too much so I definitely would avoid that.

    I've ordered a few from Amazon to try out. These are the slimmest I could find (at least until the Desmay Slight 5 comes out).

    1. Apple iPhone 5 Ringke SLIM Soft Feeling Premium Hard Case : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B00993E8B6&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    2. Anker Glaze Case for iPhone 5: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B008WXM43S&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    3. Photive Natural Slim Fit Case for Apple iPhone 5: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...SIN=B0097BZNPK&linkCode=as2&tag=6458422537-20

    4. AViiQ Thin Series iPhone 5 Case (sold out :(): http://www.aviiq.com/collections/iphone/products/thin-series-iphone-5-case

    5. Slim Hard Plastic Snap-On Matte Back Case for new iPhone5 5TH GEN (this one is the closest I could find to the Desmay Slight): http://www.ebay.com/itm/230851440663

    --

    First impressions:

    1. Not bad, not as thin as the Desmay Slight (the iPhone 4S version). This one's a "soft finish" or rubbery feel. There's also a non-rubbery one.

    2. Meh. TPU case paired with a plastic bumper. I wouldn't consider this one slim at all.

    3. I like. Reminds me of the Case-Mate Barely There series.

    4. [sold out]

    5. The closest I could get to an official Desmay Slight. This very well might be what Desmay will release.

    Just a heads up about all these snug-fitting slim cases -- two years ago i learned my lesson from thin cases with the iPhone 4. Debris got in there and scratched the metal all the way around the phone. For the iPhone 5, i decided to buy a SwitchEasy color for occasional use, but mostly it'll be naked.
