    My 5s comes in some time today, and I haven't bought a case or screen protector. I'm looking for a thin and clear case, and was actually looking at the Luvvit cases, does anyone have experience with those? I liked it for its clear hard back and bumper like edges, the last hard case I had scuffed up my 4s pretty bad.

    I have recently tried the Power Support Air Jacket. Seems to work great, is low profile, and looks classy.

    I have the Speck black & white, it's really nice and (so far) durable :)

    I have a Gold 5s and I've had the clear Rocketfish case on it since launch and I'll stand by its durability.

    Every now & then a little bit of dust will creep in but I haven't experienced any scuff marks yet. I do take it off and polish it all up about once a day though.

    Whatever you do though, stay away from the otterbox defender cases. It scuffed my iPhone 5 up pretty bad.

    Try this from Magpul. I have been using their cases since 2 years.

    I recommend the Apple iPhone 5s Leather Case. It's not clear, but its damn good looking!

    Reminds me of a stop motion video...

    OP, if you're going clear, are you sure you even need a case? If you're looking to show of the phone/s natural looks, why not go naked?

    Lol I never knew Magpul made an iPhone case. I have been using a lot of their "other" products for a very long time.

    I love it. Light, good looking and feels so good to hold! Worth every penny even though it's not cheap!

    I have the Magpul case and it is fantastic!! Can't beat the price and it will last. Had speck cases in the past, and at first they are great, but after a while the "trim" or whatever you call it, will start to rub off and disappear. Also speck has not done anything to improve the small piece on the front edge buy the charging port, it will break and pretty quick too!!

    I have an otterbox commuter and while it's not clear it's thin and tough.

    Bingo! Worth every penny of the $40 I spent on it. Would buy again.

    A premium feeling case for a premium device.

    Clear cases look tacky imo. I use Apple's leather case and I love it - looks and feels great.

    Some clear cases made of soft plastic like TPU can also turn yellow over time if exposed to a lot of sunlight.

    I prefer colored TPU cases over clear. I have a Diztronic on my iPhone 5 and it's a superb case for $9. The fit and buttons are just perfect.

    I have this case in black and clear. I get so many compliments whenever I have it on my phone. I've even caught the Apple genus spying it. :apple:
