    I can't remember the name of the case, but I remember seeing a case a while ago where the thin style case looked very similar to the rear panel of the iPhone 5's back.
    Can anyone lead me in right direction ?
    Thanks

    Not really enough info there. Not likely to get an answer.

    I think you're referring to the Switcheasy Tones case.

    Ok.
    It's a thin case. Black in color with the same dual tone lay out as the back of the phone.
    It's been a while since I saw the pic, I just remember it looking similar to how the phone back looks with no case on.

    Both of the two listed above look awesome.
    Thanks for the review also on the first one.

    lol true!

    i think out of all the cases i've seen, the Elago outfit looks the most similar from the back since it's separated into 3 sections.. looks really nice too.

    Thanks for the tips guys. True the clear one would show the blackness but its a little cheap looking to me on the last clear case I saw for my previous 3GS. I'd prefer an actual black 2 tone design just like the back of the phone looks. It would be ideal to have the apple logo on it but I don't see that happening on any cases without some customization lol.

    I've seen the 'tones' case and that was the first one I found when researching this after I got my phone this weekend. I was disappointed though as it wasnt what I was expecting to see. The elago case is spot on though (and the other one like it. I'm pretty sure that's what I recall seeing. )
    Nonetheless I ordered a elago case yesterday after seeing the other posts' pictures of it of an actual customers phone and how nice it looks.

    Thanks
    Brad
