    Let's see....new member with asian-ish sounding name making numerous posts about a new iPhone bumper made in Korea. Is anyone else smelling a canned pork product?

    And seriously, you can't use 30 pin to lightning adapters with this bumper. Retool the sucker and make the bottom open!

    And to respond to the OP, maybe the case manufacturers are waiting to see if Apple's going to keep the design and upgrade the internals before they release new products. If I were a case manufacturer now, I'd hesitate to spend thousands of dollars and months to design and build a product; Apple could be releasing a completely new design in a few months as far as we know.

    It's not really anything special.

    Not visually, but all the cool features make it the best case for the iPhone 5.

    There's only so much that can be done with a rectangular shape.

    • Thin, so you don't walk around with a bulky case.
    • Covers the whole phone, except for the screen, but has individual openings for the mute switch, lightning port, speaker, and mic/headphone jack, so there are no unnecessary openings (i.e. sleep/wake button and volume buttons).
    • Has a lip, so you can lay it on the table without worrying about scratching the screen (even with a glass screen protector) and also covers the chamfer edges.
    • Made of TPU, so it's highly scratch resistant and fairly shock absorbent.
    • Very sleek design with interesting color combinations.
    • A sufficient, but somewhat big, camera cutout to avoid flashback issues.
    • Buttons that work well, unless you are a very frail person.
    The list goes on. ;)

    Well all those things you listed seem to be available on a variety of cases and aren't really specific to just this case.

    But no other case has all these features in one case along with the quality exhibited by this case.

    Unfortunately not. At least for the iPhone 5. Their cases have grilles over the speaker and mic. These grilles collect dust in there and there's no way to quickly clean it, unlike the Belkin, where you can just blow at it.

    Interesting cases, but none with the clean look of the Belkin Grip Candy Sheer.
