    Most cases I see is pretty thick and ruins the feel of iPhone. This look pretty promising. Anyone tried it?

    What's the point? Just use a Screen Protector on the back if you want to protect against scratches, because this isn't protecting **** if you drop the phone.

    $25 shipped for a case that does hardly anything to protect the phone from anything is a joke. I got my OtterBox Defender on eBay for $21 shipped. Now that is a deal. This case should cost no more than $10.

    I am ordering one too. Let's see how it comes out. It isn't that expensive anyway. I like having different cases to give my iphone a different look from time to time.

    I do not plan to drop my iPhone is any cases and knock on wood never did. If you plan on using a case to prevent damage from dropping then good luck. I am pretty sure 90% of cases out there don't prevent damage from dropping.

    I think something that thin would crack easily, all thin cases suffer from the crack factor.

    there are front, back and side protectors

    Why Apple chose glass was a pure ego driven decision. One drop, in nearly every case equals a shattered phone. How exclusive :)

    PP, as in Polypropylene, it's a standard thermoplastic. There is nothing 'very special' about it.

    Just received the case. It's better than i thought. I like the simple design which doesn't ruin the look of my iPhone. It IS very thin and light. I wouldn't be testing it and drop my iPhone though. lol.... Let's see if it cracks like someone mentioned here.

    That's why you get a screen protector. Holds the screen together. I dropped my phone a few times on hard surfaces and its still in one piece. Screen protectors help resale value too ;)

    It's pretty sweet, it's a bit late to buy a iP4 case though...

    how so? I'm sure many people that got an iphone 4 aren't gonna pick up 5 this year. And cases tend to wear out and break at a steady pace. ;P

    yes, this does look good thanks for the tip. I will wait for more reviews though, I really need something to protect mine too.

    I agree, pointless. I'm all for thin cases but at some point may as well just get a skin.

    I don't plan on dropping my phone, but the original I had (home button stomped working) took some spills from lap height, ive fumbled it on top of that. Some thin cases saved it..including a case like the incipio feather..and one of the thin snap ons...both were eBay cases, both broke when dropped but the phone had no issues. Exactly what a light thin case should be..cheap, replaceable, and take the shock for the phone.

    As I know, the Cross Line iphone 4 case is the thinnest.
