    I have been using my Belkin grip Vue case for few months... pretty good... my colleague had a 0.7mm thick PC case to protect his iP4... looks pretty cool... but I want to get a thinner PC case... anyone knows where I can get one?

    Thanks!

    I think the general rule for polycarbonate is 1.5 mm if you want it to survive a drop test. That being said, I saw some mention of Pinlo cases here on the forum a while back...they got their cases down to .35 mm or so.

    Try the generic ones on eBay/Amazon. They are pretty thin, cheap.

    I got a 0.7mm from case and it works great... love it... of course it does not offer great drop protection... but good enough to protect the phone from daily use

    Just finished up testing the Coolous Cat Ice Case, which measures only 0.35mm thick. Seems very similar to the Pinlo. Review will up next week.

    The 0.35mm case is not a choice for me. Its from another form of plastic called PET or something like that... The case is easily cracked

    I like the case make of Polycarbonate (PC), but so far the thinnest PC case is 0.7mm... :)

    I use a pinlo slice 3 (0.35mm). The next thinnest case i've used is the caze zero 5 matte version. It's 0.5mm but much more durable (the slice 3 is unlikely to survive a small drop). Another slim case that provides moderate protection is the incase snap. 1mm but has lay on the table design.

    You might as well put Saran Wrap
