ive used totallee and caudabe. Trying to find a good very thin case for the iPhone X. I am not looking for something with a lip on the front. The thinner the better :)

I have a Totallee and and the Caudabe Clear and the Clear is on it most of the time. Totallee is great...but I love the Clear.

I just got the Totallee in frosted white and am definitely impressed with how well it resembles a naked phone. Single handed typing is vastly easier than with the Apple Leather case I was using before. I just wish I had gotten a different color. The frosted white makes the sides look like cheap plastic. They have a Coral Blue I think I might have liked much better.

Yeah, Caudabe Lucid Clear hands down. The Totallee and Veil XT are exactly the same paper thin type of case. Lucid Clear is slightly thicker and offers more protection. Plus it’s transparent (which can be a pro or con depending on what you want - in my eyes it’s a benefit).

For me, any light case with a lip extending over to the screen is a deal breaker (and disturbing natural feel and swipe method of using iPhone). Ordered Peel to compare with my current Caudaube XT. Will report soon.

Just started using a Tozo thin case and I quite like it.

I'd like to change my screen protector from a notched one to an all over but it seems a bit of a minefield choosing one.
Then there's the stress of getting it on perfect. o_O

I have the Totalee leather case. Love it apart from there’s no lip to protect the camera.

Ringke is usually my go to.

It's a thin, hard case that doesn't cost a lot and provides 360 degree(covers the top and bottom also) protection.

After receiving 3 different colours of Peel thin case I can say it is better than Caudabe XT (have 2 pcs.) in terms of material used. Although precision is a little bit inconsistent. Out of 3 ordered only 1 is matching perfectly. Other two have minor problems (first case has problem with camera cutout and warping of back + second case - uneven lip on front).

I just bought this case in jet white and silver. Haven't tried the silver one yet, but I really like the jet white.

I had the Caudabe Lucid Clear before and like the peel better.
They should have hired a better hand model.

I've always got those non-full coverage glass protectors for my iphone 6s plus, 8 plus, and was going to go with the notched glass for my X. I'm also very OCD about dust under protector and perfect alignment. I was torn between the iCarez and Arbalest mentioned in the macrumors screen protector thread.

I went with the Arbalest, and it's great, I highly recommend it. Easy to push bubbles out, and the alignment is easy; unfortunately the Arbalest doesn't come with the alignment tray, but I was able to do without it.
