    I am considering ditching my 5S for the 6S, and I have the Incipio NGP but I am interested in slimmer stuff, but are there any cases that are:

    - Thin
    - Yet thick enough to keep the cameralens off the table end With a small lip for the screen
    - See-through
    - Grippy

    Look into the clear speck. It's definitely grippy and protects the camera, howeever I wouldn't call it terribly thin. I am very happy with it (had a leather case that my son dropped on the concrete while in my arms so I retired that after over a year of use).

    Spigen Liquid Crystal is high quality clear TPU. Just thick enough to keep camera and front glass away from surfaces. Very slim, still protective for light drops, and classic smooth TPU grip. Sticks right to my fingers.

    I'd love to hear other recommendations as well. I tried the Spigen liquid crystal but received one that was defective on the top seam and was all scratched up. So I returned it. Others have given great reviews on Amazon on the Spigen case.

    So you can see real pictures that show you how slim the Liquid Crystal is. (This is the 6s Plus)

    NewTrent. This is a fantastic, underappreciated brand. My son "stole" my original Trentium 6 for his 6, and I'm now using one that is super protective (I forget which model it is) and even has a built in screen. I love their stuff!

    Hmm, looks very nice. I am not quite settled on the smaller 6s and the Plus seems compelling. Is it manageble in that case?

    Would you mind sharing the lip around the screen

    No problem. Work lighting is better than home but I'll give it a shot. I'll post back in a few.

    I'm seeing reviews of button misalignment for 6S. No problem with yours?

    No problems whatsoever. I'm insanely picky about button action/feel/alignment and this case is 100% on point. Can't speak for the 6s, but the 6s Plus case is perfect in this regard.

    So you will not believe me until you get this case but it is the best thin case I have found. At its price, worth the gamble of ordering. In the USA. Its meets your criteria. Get the smoke color. Post here once you receive and find I am right.

    I have been pretty happy with my "peel" case...it is .35mm thin!
    It is pretty much transparent and covers the camera as you requested. I guess the only issue would be the lip around the screen...it is about even with the front. With a screen protector you'd have no issues though.

    I've never seen the tozo...but I'm interested to know too as my wife likes my new Peel case. The price is a little high though.
